WHEELER ARMY AIRFIELD, Hawaii -- Resolving to lose weight and stay fit at the beginning of a new year is so common it's become a cliché.
But this year, the Schofield Health & Fitness Center, part of garrison's Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation, is making it easier to stick to that resolution with its first-ever Fitness Resolution on Saturday, Jan. 17, at the center.
The event is free and open to all Department of Defense cardholders and their family members 13 and older.
Attendees can meet with representatives from Sgt. Yano Library, DFMWR's Outdoor Recreation program, Island Divers and nutritionists from Tripler Army Medical Center, among others.
The event also provides an opportunity to participate in 15-minute previews of fitness classes offered by the Schofield Health & Fitness Center.
Megan Miller, Schofield Health & Fitness Center manager, encourages those interested in improving their health and fitness to attend the Fitness Resolution and consider signing up for a class anyway.
"All of the classes can be done at your own pace," she said. "The point is to keep moving, even if you can't do it as fast as everybody else."
There's something for even the youngest of participants. The center is hosting a 10-week Zumbini class for children 0-3 years old at 11 a.m. on Thursdays.
The first Zumbini demonstration kicked off on Thursday, Jan. 8, and the first class starts on Thursday, Jan. 22. The cost is $145 for 10 weeks. Call the center for drop-in rates.
