Notice that word “eating” in the previous sentence?Are you looking for a Christmas gift that will keep on giving? How about giving your special loved one (you know the one with the love handles) a membership to the Wellington Fitness Center.The Wellington Fitness Center, under Wellington Recreation Commission management, is offering gift certificates for memberships whether it is one month, six months or 12-month packages.The fitness center opened in October of 1995 and is located on the second floor of Memorial Auditorium. It features state of the art fitness equipment and qualified and friendly workers to assist patrons.Also, the WRC employees three personal trainers: Debbie Murphy, Cherity Elder and Judy Nusbaum, who offer individualized fitness programs to meet the needs, interests, and fitness goals.Â Coming soon: The design for a new Wellington Recreation Fitness Center has been in the planning stage off and on for a number of years.The WRC â€” working with the city and USD 353 â€” are working on a plan to build a facility that will house a fitness center, fitness classrooms, men and womenâ€™s locker rooms, restrooms, offices, storage rooms, and a community/art room. The proposed building will be a two story metal building, 64 feet wide by 80 feet long, located and connected west of the current building. This project is an investment in family and Wellingtonâ€™s future for which WRC officials are excited to be part.
