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.
Details are forthcoming about scheduling and class times for all programs.
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
