Altoona’s Outlets of Des Moines is planning to help customers stay fit and fabulous this February, American Heart Month, by putting customers in touch with the community's athletic training offerings.
“We looked for something with the beginning of the new year and we thought of heart health and fitness so we are having different fitness facilities come out and hold a class to get them exposure,” said Julie Dawson, marketing director at Outlets of Des Moines.
Classes will be provided each Saturday during the month.
For the first weekend on Feb. 3, ICE Performance Training Center was on hand for a beginners class for kids and adults. Beefcake Fuel also was on hand to provide free samples and Mercy hospital had staff available to provide blood pressure screening.
For the upcoming event on Feb. 10 Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping will be provide a bands class at 9 a.m.. At 9:45 a.m. GNC, which has a store at the outlet mall, will offer some free samples. Athletico will provide physical therapy screening at 10 a.m.
On Feb. 17 ICE Performance Training will return to provide an advance warrior class for those 14 and older from 9 a.m. until 9:45 a.m. Following that Beefcake Fuel will return with free samples. At 10 a.m. Kelly Johnson will provide chair massages on a reservation basis.
For the final weekend Altoona Campus will offer a yoga class at 9 a.m. followed by their nutritionist giving those in attendance valuable tips.
All of the classes are being held in space 580, located next to ASICS. They are free and open to the public. Class sizes will not be restricted and those attending are encouraged to come in workout gear.
“For us the importance is getting people here and to see if we should offer a class every month,” Dawson said. “There are some people that have never been here.”
