Third Milton Fitness Camp Scheduled for January
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. They've both been involved since the launch of the program in October, and Tara said it's made a profound difference in their family.

"My kids are always hearing us talking about our exercise," she said. "It's just become a part of our everyday lives."

For Diane Amaral, another camper since the beginning, it's about energy -- having more of it, that is.

"Now I'm able to get a lot more done, I can keep going into the evening," she said. "Before, I had to rely on caffeine to get me through the day. Not anymore."

During the next session, the camps -- offered at four different times on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays -- take place at Bell Memorial Park (15245 Bell Park Road, Milton, 30004). On cold days, the classes are held indoors. They are taught by Riddick, a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist.

For Milton residents, the four-week camps are offered at a special rate of $90. For non-residents, the cost rises to $120. The City of Milton and CorePhysique are offering special bulk holiday rates as well -- three months of personalized training for $260, or six months for $525.

The price of the camp includes an informational booklet and personal fitness journal, nutrition coaching and enrollment in one of four sessions:

* 5:45 a.m.
* 7:30 a.m.
* 8:30 a.m.
* 9:15 a.m.

Each camp includes a warm-up and workout that combines strength, cardiovascular endurance and flexibility exercises.
