The Penn College Fitness Center this semester introduced Cross Training, the latest addition to its Fitness & Wellness Promotion Series. The one-hour group exercise class involves small circuit-based exercises that are targeted toward burning calories while staying strong and fit. Classes accommodate participants of all fitness levels, from beginners to advanced athletes, on various techniques. The focus is on a progressive format that involves components of cardio, powerlifting and functional calisthenics. The Cross Training classes were offered on Wednesdays in the mezzanine of the Field House, and will continue in future semesters. Participation is free to all members of the Penn College community with a valid ID card. “Look for advertised postings throughout campus and at the Fitness Center (Bush Campus Center, second floor) for details about future classes,” said Domenick S. Schiraldi-Irrera, fitness center assistant (who also provided photos). “Bring a friend and we’ll see you there for another great exercise class offered here at Penn College!”
