Spring RoCo Fit beginning

CLAREMORE — Rogers County has an extremely successful fitness program FREE to anyone who lives, works, and/or learns in Rogers County. 

RoCo Fit is inviting anyone wanting to get started being active, become more active, gain better health, and in the process meet fun, interesting people and make friends for life to join us in our free fitness program. 
RoCo Fit aims to continue to bring the community together to get healthier; both physically and mentally. 
The program is in its  second year and fourth session of Rogers County Fitness Training Program (RoCo Fit) this month and are ready to get moving and have fun together again.
Many who participated in RoCo Fit last year have kept up their fitness regimen together, meeting even in the rain, snow, and extreme temperatures, sometimes moving it inside, just to get a workout during the break between Fall and Spring. Several have accomplished personal goals, big and small, 5Ks, 10Ks, half-marathons, marathons, trail races. Others have kept active together and/or alone for the fun social and physical benefits only. Most will be returning with big smiles to our Spring RoCo Fit session ready to forge ahead to even better health and more fun times, many as mentors for incoming Spring participants.
The Rogers County (free) Fitness Training Program (RoCo Fit) Spring Session will begin  with an Information Meeting/Registration for all who have not participated in RoCo Fit, Tuesday, March 12th, 6:30 p.m. at Claremore Community Center, 2501 N. Sioux. We will share the details, answer questions, and hear testimonies of those who have grown healthier with us. We are adding a Pace Grouping Activity/Registration for everyone (past and new) joining RoCo Fit at 6 p.m. on March 14 at Claremore High School Track. Spring Workouts begin at 6 p.m. March 19 at Claremore Lake and continue every Tuesday and Thursday evening working towards their goal event, Collinsville Moonlight 5K, Friday evening, June 7th.
