Many of us have resolutions that we want to keep. Instead of dropping your new plans after they’ve barely begun, check out all of the options Columbia Association (CA) offers to help you stick with and reach your fitness and recreational goals. CA’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for people living and working in Columbia, and one of the ways to do that is to provide facilities and programs that help people get in shape and have fun so they can feel and look awesome!
As you may already know, CA has three fitness facilities: Columbia Athletic Club, Columbia Gym and Supreme Sports Club. Each offers group fitness classes that give members a chance to socialize while participating in an exercise class taught by certified instructors. Classes range from basic aerobics to hip-hop dancing to kickboxing. And if you prefer something a little more low key, CA also has mind/body classes to relax you and get you in shape. In addition to yoga offerings, there are tai chi and Qigong (a less complex form of tai chi) classes. There are also some boot camp programs, aquatics programs and classes geared toward residents age 55 and over.
CA also offers wellness programs to keep you healthy and happy. There’s Columbia Optimal Health, a program focusing on exercise, nutrition and behavioral health; Fit Beginnings, a program focusing on exercise; WINN, an exercise program for mature adults ages 45 and older; and Columbia Youth Fit, a program focusing on creating healthy families. Call 410-715-3128 for more information.
If you’re looking for a way to enjoy the great outdoors, CA provides several amenities to the Columbia community including pathways, tot lots, parks, picnic pavilions, basketball and tennis courts, and golf courses for residents and members to enjoy.
