OPEN GYM SESSIONS

Come and play for an afternoon during our open-gym sessions! The mobile playground will be available each Sunday afternoon beginning in October and will rotate among local communities each month. The open gym sessions are a great opportunity for parents and kids to have fun and be active this winter. There is no obligation to pay, however free-will donations will be accepted. Parents must be present to supervise children.

IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Fort HealthCare’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of our community and in an effort to do that, we invite local agencies to put the Railyard to use in each of our communities. Examples include special events, Park & Rec departments, employers or schools. To coordinate the use of Railyard, contact Tiffany Frohmader, worksite wellness specialist, at (920) 568-5475.

SAFETY

Railyard has been used with people of all ages with little risk of injury. To make it even safer, we use mats under the elevated beams and setup on non-skid surfaces. Classes are structured in a way that the sequences become more difficult as you warm-up so risks are diminished and you achieve maximum benefit. Fort HealthCare’s Railyard instructors each have an exercise/health background and focus on safety throughout class.

PROVIDED BY

Railyard Fitness equipment was purchased using funds generated by the Fort Memorial Hospital Foundation during the 2013 Gala. Thanks to our friends at Nasco, the Fort HealthCare Pediatric Wellness Team was able to acquire the entire “Deluxe” system to provide community classes to help improve the health and well-being of all of our community members, beginning with children and families.
