Fit and Fun for Free at People Plus in January

If you made a New Year’s resolution to “pick up the pace” of your personal fitness, or try a new activity, why not come to People Plus and start something new at no cost? Try any one (or more) of our offerings during January for Free!

Executive Director Stacy Frizzle explains, “this is more about getting new folks into new experiences,” she said, “we’re confident if they try it, they’ll like it!” The Center routinely offers more than a dozen fitness classes each week, varying from Table Tennis (free all the time!) to Tai Chi. All of our instructor led courses are available to members for a cost of only $5 a session. And the Center has over a dozen clubs that meet regularly to write, play a game, converse in a different language and more!
“The goal is to get folks engaged,” Frizzle explained, “This offer is for new attendees to try classes/clubs and see if they like it. We’re confident they will. There is no better investment than the one we all make in our own personal health. What a way to start the New Year!”

This offer is free and open to the public. Call the Center at 729-0757 if you have questions or want to sign up or visit www.peopleplusmaine.org for a full list of activities.
