Continuing Education Launches Post-Holidays Fitness Blitz

COLUMBUS, Ga. - Columbus State University Continuing Education has developed a program to encourage the community to start off the New Year by getting serious about shaping and sculpting a “new improved self.”

The program, “Fitness Blitz,” will run Monday through Friday, between Jan. 7-18 and feature a variety of evening fitness classes directed by experienced instructors. Participants can register for single classes or sign up for one or two weeks. The Friday sessions will focus on dance and feature sub-sessions of instruction, followed by an hour for dance and socializing.

“The real benefit will be the individual attention that participants receive and the opportunity to find out which type of exercise program best suits their individual lifestyles,” said Continuing Education Marketing Manager Kristin Barker. “Getting to sample the classes before making a commitment will allow participants to get involved with a program they can stick with throughout their lives.”
