Golden Eagles Fitness Program is Going Virtual!

The Golden Eagles Fitness Program is going virtual on Zoom this spring! The class will take place on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings at two different times. Session one is from 8:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. and session two is from 9:15 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. The instructors for the program will still be Jan Blankenship, Greg Panzella and Linette Rojas. At this time, both sessions of the Golden Eagles Fitness Program are full. 

To participate in this program, your doctor will need to complete and sign a medical form and return it to the CLR office before the actual class begins on February 1. You can have the doctor's office fax the completed form to (815) 921-3939 or scan and email it. It can also be mailed or brought to the CLR office and placed in the black drop box outside of the west entrance at the Bell School Road Center. If mailing, please send to RVC - CLR, 3301 N. Mulford Rd., Rockford, IL 61114. 

When the program was meeting in-person, there were a variety of resistance bands that participants could use during their workout. Since we are now meeting virtually, we will be mailing the resistance band of your choice to use during the spring semester. The four color choices are, Peach-extra light resistance, Orange-light resistance, Green-medium resistance, and Blue-hard resistance. If you have signed up and you need a resistance band, please contact the CLR office by phone at (815) 921-3931 and provide which color band you would like to receive. 

We want everyone who is interested to be able to participate! We have scholarships available to those with financial need. Contact the CLR Program Director, Tammy Lewis, at (815) 921-3933 for more information. All inquiries are confidential. 

How will the virtual class work?

This program meets three times per week for the entire spring semester. To avoid having to go into your email and find the Zoom link for each session, we have designed a better, easier way to access your class. We have created a Golden Eagles PDF that you will drag to your desktop from an email. Each time the class meets, you will simply open your computer, click the Golden Eagles PDF on your desktop and click into the session that you are registered for. You will use the same Zoom link each time you access the class.
