SHAPE Class - a Education/Fitness Packed 1st Month

The Women's SHAPE Program is off and running with one month of education and activities behind them. This 12-week program sponsored by the Hillsboro Area Health Foundation meets twice a week for 1 1/2 hour each day. We are offereing a morning and evening class each containing 15 women. This program is led by Aun Rogers and Sandy Miller.

Throughout the past month, the ladies have learned how to use the equipment in the Cardio Room, taken our On the Ball Class, our aquatics H2O Combo Class, a Zumba Class, and a Silver Sneakers Class. In addition to the fitness that they do at each class session, they have learned about heart health in the form of nutrition. The ladies have enjoyed taste testing healthy snacks, protein shakes, and smoothies with the goal of trying some of the things they wouldn't normally purchase in the store.

Speakers have included: Andy Kamp, HAH Teamwork Rehab, who spoke on working with and eliminating ailments and pains; Chris Pederson, Fusion Personal Trainer, who spoke on Strength Training, and Priscilla Matthews, who has a degree in Culinary Arts and in Nutrition led both groups of ladies in a cooking class thanks to St. Agnes Catholic Church and National Bank who donated their space. In this class, the ladies cooked a healthy meal together before discussing nutrition, cooking, and enjoying the meal.

This program runs from March 23rd - June 11th. Fusion is interested in offering this program again in the fall. Because of the Hillsboro Area Health Foundation, this program is offered to all participants at no cost. Please contact us if you are interested in joining.

Fusion Sponsors Boltz Swim Team For Youth

Coach Mary Beth Seher
Building on the longtime success of the summer swim team, Montgomery County Sharks, Fusion Fitness & Aquatics in Hillsboro has started a winter youth competitive swimming program.

The Boltz swim team, which began in October with six members, has grown to 15 swimmers from Hillsboro, Greenville, Litchfield and Waggoner. Practices are held at the Fusion pool from 4 to 6 p.m. Monday-Friday.

The team is coached by Fusion staffer, Mary Beth Seher, a certified lifeguard who teaches most of the facility’s aqua aerobics classes. Assistant Coach Steven Livingstone is also a certified lifeguard and leads the swim lesson programs at Fusion.

This is Mary Beth’s first time to coach swimmers, and she’s dived in with enthusiasm.
“I had to learn everything about competitive swimming,” she says, “from how to run a practice to what a meet is like, plus the rules and regulations of the USA Swim competitive league.”

Executive Director Jessica Chappelear said that Mary Beth has spent many days on the road meeting and developing working relationships with coaches of teams from Jacksonville, Lincoln, Sullivan, Taylorville, Springfield and Decatur.

The Boltz first participated in a Dec. 7 swim meet at Jacksonville. On Jan. 10 the team traveled to Lincoln, where they competed in 30 events including individual events, medleys and four-member relays. Boltz swimmers placed 1st in 17 events, 2nd in seven and 3rd in ten events.

Fusion now offers two levels of instruction, depending on the swimmer’s abilities. For those who are working on swimming the length of the pool and developing strokes, practices are offered three days a week, 4-5 p.m., at a cost of $30/ members and $40/non-members.
Beginning swim lessons are also offered on Saturday morning.

To join the Boltz, a swimmer must know the four strokes –– breast stroke, back stroke, butterfly and free style –– and be able to swim the length of the pool, 25 yards. Practices are available five days a week, 4-6 p.m., at a cost of $50/members and $60/non-members.

Fusion has joined USA Swim, the national governing body for competitive swimming that leads the Olympics and currently has 266,000 athletes. Seher has been certified as a coach by USA Swim, and Fusion is looking for others interested in coaching and becoming certified. Also needed are volunteers to serve as officials and timers so that Fusion could host a swim meet.

For more information, contact Seher or Chappelear at Fusion, 217-532-3896.
