The FitGround is Open
The Shimon and Sara Birnbaum Jewish Community Center (JCC) in Bridgewater announces the opening of JFitGround, the JCC’s new outdoor fitness training area. JFitground opened in mid-July at the JCC located at 775 Talamini Road in Bridgewater.
The announcement was made by Laura Friedman, JCC Executive Director who stated, “We are thrilled to be on the cutting edge of fitness and to continuously enhance our JCC by providing our members with a challenging and enjoyable outdoor workout experience.”
According to JCC Fitness Director, Joy McIntyre, “JFitGround offers a total body workout for both novice and intermediate users of functional fitness equipment and is specifically engineered for outdoor use.” FitGround offers six circuits to incorporate a full body workout. In addition, JFitGround offers battle ropes, kettle bells, medicine balls, TRX and a tire flip. Ms. McIntyre expects that JFitGround will show JCC members that working out can be enjoyed with family and friends in an outdoor environment as well as indoors.
JFitGround is open to members of the JCC and is used for individual workouts as well as personal and small group training. JFitGround will be open through Mid-November, weather permitting during JCC operating hours and will reopen in April 2016.
