According to the Wellness Council of America more than one-third of American workers experience chronic work stress, and almost two-thirds (65 percent) cite work as a significant source of stress.  In an effort to provide temporary relief from the stress of work, the Recreation & Welfare Association offers physical activity classes for organizations and I/Cs.  We will provide these classes at a location specified by the organization.  The classes offered are generally low to moderate intensity and will not require use of a shower after.

Class options include (but are not limited to):

-Afro-Latin Dance as Exercise
-Small Group Personal Training
-Strength Training with Resistance Bands
-Walking Program
