Prairie Fit Members: 

As we move into the next phase of our State’s reopening plan, we are pleased to announce that Prairie Fit at The Prairie Activity & Recreation Center (PARC) will be reopening on TUESDAY JULY 7th.

While the fitness area might look the same, there are changes we want you to be aware of.

Below you will find information and links to our safety procedures and what you can expect when returning to Prairie Fit when it comes to our staff, general facility guidelines, restroom and locker room guidelines, sanitizing policy, and signage.

In addition, below you will find information for those ready to come back along with information for those who might not yet be ready.

Membership Status Update:
Prairie Fit at PARC guests will be welcomed back on Tuesday July 7th, with your membership status being unfrozen and billing resuming on FRIDAY JULY 17th, 2020.

If you are not quite ready to return, we more than understand and you are welcome to continue to keep your account frozen thru December 16th, 2020.

If you wish to keep your membership frozen, you will need to notify Brenda Boryca, Boryca@plfdparks.org,  via EMAIL by 4:00p on FRIDAY JULY 10th.

We will need any extension requests in writing, so unfortunately voicemails or verbal conversations will not be accepted. Upon receipt of email, you will get a confirmation response confirming your request. If you wish to remain frozen, members will be able to unfreeze their account anytime between July 17th and December 16th.

Members who keep their accounts frozen will still have the option to workout by reserving a spot at $6 per workout. Non-members will be charged $8 per time slot.

How to restart your workouts:
Until further notice, we will be using an online time reservations protocol to use the facility.

This will allow for the staff to monitor and control the number of guests in the building along with giving ample time to make sure that the building is cleaned prior to each group coming in.

Reservations will be handled online only.

There will be no in-person or drop-in reservations taken at this time. Based on demands, additional slots and days may be added.

Available time slots will be as follows:

  • Mondays: 7-8:30a, 9:30-11a, 12-1:30p, 2:30-4p, 5:30-7p

  • Personal Training

    Benefits of a personal trainer

    1. Faster and better results: Having a personal trainer to guide you through your fitness routine will help make sure you are spending time on the proper types of exercise. If you only have a limited amount of time to work out, a personal trainer will make sure you get the best results possible for the amount of time that you put it.

    2. Proper fat loss and muscle gain: Most people have multiple goals when working out, the most common being fat loss and muscle gain. It’s often hard to find the right balance between these two, and a personal trainer can help you find the right exercises to achieve all of your goals.

    3. Reduced chance of injury: A personal trainer will teach you the proper form and technique to use during your workout so you can stay safe and injury-free.

    4. Establishes a lifetime exercise habit: A personal trainer can help you find ways to make healthy living and exercise a priority in your life. They can help you overcome obstacles that might prevent you from exercising, and help you set many small, achievable goals.

    5. Overcome plateaus: When you hit a plateau in your exercise routine, it can be hard to push through and stay motivated. A personal trainer can help you understand why you hit a plateau and find ways for you to work through it and see more results.
