Spring RoCo Fit beginning

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

This is a Cherokee Nation Healthy Nation WINGS sponsored event and therefore, will be free to enter for all WINGS members (anyone living in Cherokee Nation counties can join WINGS for free), which makes the entire program free of any costs. 
RoCo Fit is a “Couch to 5K” based fitness program with beginning and intermediate levels and pace groups for everyone each Spring, Summer, and Fall. The focus for RoCo Fit is to get more people active and moving more in order to improve their health and reduce chronic disease risk factors.  RoCo Fit has walk and walk/run components for each level and people are led and encouraged by experienced program mentors. The beginning level focus is on those who do “no to very little” physical activity and want to get started. The intermediate level keeps the momentum going and helps participants create a life-long healthy habit of regular exercise. This year we have added an advanced walk/run group that is more of a “club” who meets at the same time in order to continue their workouts with an un-mentored group. The RoCo Fit Club has been formed to accommodate all the participants who have finished several sessions or already are regular walkers/runners and want to continue with a group and move forward towards their personal goals. We have a large group of repeaters who absolutely love the group workouts and need this continuation; therefore it was a natural addition to RoCo Fit. 
In addition to the mentored walk and walk/run workouts, RoCo Fit has several educational clinics. Participants will hear professional speakers and get questions answered on a variety of fitness topics including nutrition, injury prevention, workout gear, and proper walking and running form. Also, cross-training is encouraged and several free opportunities are available throughout the session. Participants will also receive incentives for finishing differing amounts of the program; one is a technical shirt after completing 70 percent of the session’s workouts. All participants will receive weekly information/education emails and announcements of local events.
