Paula Ricke is not new to Kasson, but she is new to Anytime Fitness. As of August 2013 she is the new manager of the Kasson Anytime Fitness. She is excited to introduce more people to all that Anytime Fitness offers. Paula is not new to wellness and exercise; she brings valuable experience gleaned from her work in this field. When the opportunity in Kasson was presented she was eager to work in the community she and her family call home.
Paula has a degree in Health Promotion and Exercise Management along with a variety of different certificates and training experiences in exercise, health and wellness coaching. On top of that Paula brings a high level of enthusiasm to her position. Upon meeting Paula, it is obvious she believes in the importance of wellness and her positive attitude and energy fuel her desire to help others attain a healthy level of fitness. "Anytime Fitness is ready to meet the needs of all. We invite and encourage people to come check us out. They will find an environment that offers support and guidance", Paula states. "Even though our name says 'fitness' we really are a wellness center and strive to meet the needs of the whole person through exercise, nutrition, personal sessions and consultations", she continues. "Our ultimate goal is to help people feel good".
Anytime Fitness is the world's largest 24 hour gym and co-ed fitness center chain that had its beginnings right here in Minnesota. Members can gain entrance and exercise at their convenience using their own security access key 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. New members receive three free personal fitness orientations to ensure they feel comfortable with the club and to ensure they are set-up for success. Anytime Fitness also offers Anywhere Club Access. With this benefit, members can visit thousands of Anytime Fitness centers for the price of a standard monthly gym membership. This is appealing for people who travel, whether it be for business or pleasure, or have a second home and do not need an excuse not to exercise when away from home.
For a cardio workout, Anytime Fitness offers treadmills, ellipticals, exercise bikes, and stair climbers. On the strength side they offer linear machines, free weights, racks, and plate loaded equipment. The club also offers the convenience of private showers, tanning, personal training and small group classes.
Employee programs are also offered to encourage health and fitness in the workplace and online support is available at www.anytimehealth.com. When workers improve their health and fitness it increases employee productivity and decreases healthcare spending-a win/win for both employers and employees!
Paula, her husband and two children live in the Kasson area and Paula is anxious to have Anytime Fitness become a more involved presence in the community whether it be through business or volunteer opportunities. "I have a lot of ideas to involve the community and its members in wellness. Most importantly I want community members to take that first step-literally-and stop and see us to find out all that we offer. We are happy to be part of the Kasson area community helping people be fit and healthy", Paula says with a smile.
