Let’s Go Algoma! Will Keep Community Active Through Winter Months
Ministry Door County Medical Center is proud to announce a new initiative that kicks off the New Year in Algoma with free fitness classes for area residents. “Let’s Go Algoma!” offers a variety of choices to help people to stay active throughout the winter months. Ministry is partnering with several local organizations, including Shannon’s Yoga and Fitness, the Algoma Public Schools, the Door County YMCA and Stick to It Fitness, to offer free classes three evenings per week. Options range from Yoga and Zumba to Core Classes and Circuit Training.
“We’ve built great relationships with many people and organizations in Algoma, including presenting free art programs to children in schools, working with local employers to offer wellness education to their employees, and most recently, teaching nearly 50 Algoma kids how to swim during the holiday break,” says Matt Luders, Ministry’s health and wellness executive. Throughout these efforts, Luders heard repeatedly from residents that they wanted more fitness opportunities in their own community. Dr. Nate Hayes, DO, who serves the Algoma community at North Shore Medical Clinic, agrees. “People in Algoma want to stay active, especially during the cold winter months.”
“We are responding to that need by giving residents new, fun and free opportunities for fitness,” says Luders. Classes are appropriate for all levels of fitness.
Ministry nurses will be on hand during the first and last weeks of class to provide an optional biometric screening, and the first 100 registrants will receive a free wellness gift package.
“Let’s Go Algoma!” begins the week of January 20 and continues for eight weeks. Algoma residents should watch their mailboxes for more details. For more information, or to register, call (920) 493-5979.
