KMC ACTIVE

We are excited to announce we will be expanding our exercise class offerings to community members in Piatt County and surrounding areas. Our new addition will be attached to our existing CrossFit KMC facility but will be a separate space dedicated to non-CrossFit programs. The new facility is called “KMC Active” and will feature 3 new class offerings; KMC 30, KMC Endurance, and KMC Yoga.

  • KMC 30: Make fitness and health fun again with our KMC 30 program. KMC 30 is a short 30 minute, bodyweight workout designed for someone who wants to workout in a supportive environment with low impact exercises, diverse activities focused on improving core strength, and bringing your heart rate to a healthy range. Each workout will have a warm-up, a workout, and a cool down. We will also measure your resting heart rate and active heart rate to establish a baseline and periodically check in to make sure you are in a healthy range for your specific gender & age. Workouts can be personalized in class to meet you where you are and help you progress and meet your fitness goals.

  • KMC Endurance: This class is designed to develop general endurance, cardiorespiratory efficiency, and stamina, bring your heart rate into a healthy range, and helping you get in better shape. Doing a race? Get race ready for whatever challenges lie ahead and let us help you reach your goal! Run, walk, row, bike, repeat! Classes will be 45 minutes and will include a specific warm-up for that day, as well as a cool down stretch to improve flexibility. We will also work with you to improve general body-weight strength by incorporating core and stability exercises. Join us in this fun and upbeat training environment.

  • KMC Yoga: The class uses breathing techniques, exercise and meditation to help improve health and happiness.

If you are interested in trying one of these classes before joining or would like to put your name on the pre-registration list, please call 217-762-1520 or email healthandwellness@kirbyhealth.org to have your name placed.
