Before accessing the weight room at the Parker Recreation Center and Parker Fieldhouse, youth ages 13 to 17 must first attend a free Youth Equipment Orientation & Certification. Orientations include a demonstration of the proper use of equipment, weight room etiquette and proper equipment safety. Certification classes are held at the Parker Recreation Center, 17301 E. Lincoln Ave., every-other Friday from 5 to 6 p.m. and every-other Saturday from 9 to 10 a.m. throughout the summer. Registration is required; visit www.ParkerRec.com/Fitness for more information and to register.
Are you new to exercising with weights or just need a refresher on proper operation? Register for a private fitness orientation and have a certified personal trainer take you through the proper set-up and operation of the machines and form using the free weights. The trainer can help answer your question about exercise and give safe recommendations. Private Fitness Equipment Orientations are for those 16 years and older; cost is $25 R/$28 NR.
