“It’s Time for RoCo Fit – Registration for Spring Session Now Open”
RoCo Fit is a FREE fitness training program for anyone age 13 years and older who wants to get healthier with a fun mentored group. We will help you walk or walk/run your way to becoming more fit. If you have a goal to lose or maintain weight, lower your cholesterol, reduce your risk for heart disease or diabetes, relieve your arthritis pain, get out and enjoy the outdoors, or to meet new people and have fun, we are here to show you the way!
The RoCo Fit Information Meeting will be on Monday, March 7th at Northeast Technology Center-Claremore, 1901 N. Hwy 88 at 6:00 p.m. The hour long information meeting will explain details of the program, present testimonials, answer questions, and register those excited to get healthier with a fun group. Past RoCo Fit participants are not required to attend the information meeting and anyone may register online at www.rocofit.org. RoCo Fit is part of Rogers County Health Department and Healthy Community Partnership ongoing efforts for free opportunities to be physically activity and create a healthier environment in Rogers County.
We have mentored fitness groups for all levels from beginner walking (no to very little physical activity) to advanced running with everything in between (several intermediate levels of walking and walk/run). All RoCo Fit groups welcome anyone at least 13 yrs. of age who lives, works, plays, and/or learns in Rogers County. Minors will be required to have a parent or guardian in the same group.
The best people to describe this program are past participants:
“Before I started RoCo, I found it hard to workout on a consistent basis, it was too hot, too cold, boring, my knees always hurt, no time…Since joining RoCo, I have more energy, I have someone to walk with, my knees no longer hurt, and I’ve lost 20 lbs.!!! This is a wonderful program and I am so thankful for the support and encouragement. Thank you.”
“RoCo Fit has been so great!!!! There are nights that I didn’t want to go (wanted to be lazy instead), but left feeling so proud and in such a better mood after making myself go! It has been so wonderful making new friends and receiving so much encouragement from not only the mentors but other fellow runners. Everyone is so friendly!! I never thought that I would be one of those runners that you drive by and see running on a Saturday morning, but I am one now and I love it!!! It’s a great feeling completing this fitness program. I tried something similar last year and due to injury wasn’t able to complete. This has been a huge accomplishment for me and I have RoCo Fit to thank for helping me along the way!!!
“RoCo Rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why would you want to do anything else! The people, the program and everything associated with this great activity are the best thing I have ever participated in, and want to continue to do so.”
“Thank you to all the mentors and leaders of RoCo Fit . This program is wonderful! My husband and I have done this together the last two sessions and what a great thing for us. He has lost almost 20 pounds and I recently had a complete physical and numbers that were better than ever! I would encourage couples to try this together! It’s awesome!”
“I have been with RoCo for 2 years now and to date have lost a total of 50 pounds, cut my blood pressure medicine in half and am no longer considered a Type II diabetic. I have been so blessed by the people of RoCo whether it is the mentors, my group participants, or even other group members, everyone is always so supportive and encouraging and I truly appreciate that. It is the best love/hate relationship I’ve ever had!”
