Currently, 631 members make use of the weight and aerobic equipment and free weights, as well as classes. The highly popular Zumba! class features a Latin music- based dance exercise routine similar to Jazzercise, but without the counting. Partici- pants say it is a real workout. Kettlebells, which sounds more like a music class, is an- other popular addition to fit- ness class staples yoga and Pi- lates. In reality, it's a kind of weightlifting with handled, weighted iron balls. The newest class offering is a one-week daily class, "Dance the Summer Away," which will be offered July 18 - 22. Prospective and new mem- bers receive an orientation and tour of the facility. Trained staff from Feather River College's athletic pro- gram assess fitness levels and, by appointment, suggest training programs. In addi- tion, staff is always on hand to answer questions. Merle Trueblood, director of Athletic Operations and Events at FRC, said class in- structors are certified and the most qualified people in the area. In addition to Trueblood and center director Josh Tay- lor, 15 employees teach class- es, monitor clients, clean and staff the front counter. A donor recently gave the center a regulation golf simu- lator. Installation should be complete by August, True- blood said. Trueblood also has plans for more classes, including classes for seniors to help them maintain mobility, bal- ance and range of motion. He also plans to develop a degree or certification program in kinesiology through FRC. Such a program would imple- ment more classes at the cen- ter. More classes are not the on- ly plans for expansion; True- blood's wish list includes the physical plant as well. Two major projects he hopes to im- plement include an additional aerobics room at the back of the building and building a pool enclosure. "I am about the community; we've got to have this for them," Trueblood said. He invited prospective members to stop in and talk with Taylor. Those who do will receive a free two-day pass to the center.
