“It’s nice and relaxing,” Robinson said.
Keisha Cost of Vincennes spent some quality time there with her mother, Jacquelyn Cost of Montgomery. The pair planned to join the Fitness For You facility.
“It’s really cool,” Keisha said of the free spa day. “I think it‘s nice.”
The idea behind Just For You Day, according to Jill Cecil, SAFS executive director, was to introduce ladies to the Fitness For You Facility, which has a 30-minute circuit that works all the muscle groups, head to toe, and can be adapted to individual fitness levels. The doctor-approved program is built for women to help with strengthening, balance and toning.
It costs $20 a month, Cecil said, and participants pay by the month. There’s no joining fee and no age limit. Cecil stressed that women need to make it a priority to delegate time for exercise and make it a part of life. She said the health benefits are endless and it boosts mood.
To emphasize taking care of themselves, Just For You Day included the spa-type activities. In addition, there were booths by Avon, Smooth You, Mary Kay, by Tavi and Paparazzi jewelry. There also were giveaways.
Cecil was pleased with the turnout and the positive feedback she received.
“It’s just awesome,” she said.
