Spring 2015 Session is in Full Swing! Registration closed…

We have a record number of participants/mentors registered for this Spring – 450+! This is awesome!

If you are a participant this session, please be patient and watchful of others in your groups. We have some very large groups and it is a challenge to keep them all together. The mentors are there for you, but please make sure and communicate clearly and often with them and others in your group to help us remain safe. This will also go a long ways in making it more FUN and ENJOYABLE! And please realize with any program, there will be stumbling blocks – but we will overcome those and become even better.

We are ordering the incentive tech shirts this week, so keep coming to the workouts and earn those points! You CAN DO THIS…set your mind and make the time for you. Together we will become healthier, one step or stride at a time. Watch for more info and events on our Facebook page – RoCo LoCo Motion
