Third Milton Fitness Camp Scheduled for January

MILTON, GA -- Looking for the perfect holiday gift for those who want to get serious about fitness? Or maybe you're searching for a convenient exercise regimen to help make those new year's resolutions a reality.

The City of Milton and CorePhysique are here to help.

The third 12-session class of the city's popular fitness camp begins Wednesday, Jan. 5 and lasts through the end of the month.

The thrice weekly camps have been a hit, with every participant seeing inches and pounds lost and improvements in their overall physical assessment, according to Kolleen Riddick, founder of CorePhysique. Nearly everyone who starts one camp elects to take more, she said.

Tara Chambers and her husband Neil both take classes -- he at 5:45 a.m. and she at 7:30 a.m.

New Fitness Camp Session Begins Nov. 15

MILTON, GA -- The second session of the popular, affordable fitness camps offered through the City of Milton Parks and Recreation Department and Milton-based CorePhysique will begin on Monday, Nov.
