Adult programs are currently suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Adult Basketball – For adults 30 and over. Co-ed pick up play every Monday night from 7:30-9:00 pm, at the Church Street Recreation Center Gym. This is a great conditioner and a sport where you don’t have time to be distracted by fatigue or nagging aches and pains because you’re too engaged in the game. It’s dynamic, fun, and builds strength, coordination and endurance with the boredom of a treadmill.
Boot Camp – For adults and teens (8th grade and older). There is a monthly registration required to gain access to a variety of classes. Take as many as you like. Classes range from total body interval circuit, cardio/strength, weight training, ab/core, and yoga. Exit 4 Boot Camp is fun, welcoming and all classes can be modified for any fitness level. “Boot Camp” may sound intimidating but you make it as challenging as you want. It’s all about getting moving and continuing to coming back.

Day sessions are offered Monday through Thursdays from 10:15 am to 1:15 pm and an evening session on Tuesdays, indoors at the Rec Center gym.
