Giving Teen Fitness program another try

The Teen Fitness water aerobics course at the Aquatic Center begins second session this upcoming Monday, July 14.

The Kirksville Parks and Recreation Department is giving a second chance at a new program.

The first session of the Teen Fitness water aerobics course was cancelled due to a very low turnout to sign up for the course. Recreation Specialist Robin Harden said though that they are optimistic that they will get the program running.

They are now taking sign ups for the second session which begins this upcoming Monday, July 14.

"In the teen fitness class, we're going to explore all different types of water aerobics, indoor or outdoor activities. Basically we're going to do whatever we want to do and have a lot of fun," Harden said.

Young people ages 13 to 20 are encouraged to sign up. The group will meet Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings at 11:30 until August 8.

The cost is $10 which will also cover admission to the pool.
