Spring has sprung and that means the Middlefield Recreation Department is offering their spring and summer sports and programs. Families can now register for Spring Soccer and Baseball for children aged 4 to 14 years old. The Middlefield Recreation Department is also offering egg hunts for adults and children. The children’s egg hunt is for ages 1-12 years old with a cost of $2 presale, $3 day of event, and the Adult egg hunt is for adults 21 years and older with a cost of $15 presale and $20 at the event. Both egg hunts will be held on April 20 – 10 a.m. at Jordak Elementary for the children’s and 8 p.m. at Mineral Lake Park for the adults.
Spring Fitness Walking Class
The Middlefield Recreation Department is pleased to announce a second new-and-improved Fitness Walking Class this spring. Working with suggestions from last year’s inaugural class, this new class meets Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m. and Saturdays at 10 a.m. All classes will be at the Village Hall, 14860 N. State St. (44062).
Each one-hour class includes a brief lecture on a wellness issue, gentle warm-up stretches from Ba Duan Jin and a brisk fitness walk employing proper form for maximum benefit. All fitness walks will be done on the Multi-Purpose Trail immediately behind the Fire Station.
The biggest FAQ from our first class was, “Why do I need to take a class that tries to teach me something I have been doing since I was two?” Please do not be fooled. There is a major cardiovascular difference between a meandering stroll and proper fitness walking. This class clearly demonstrates the difference and shows the myriad of health improvements for those who commit to even a moderate fitness walking program.
The class is $5 (correction from March 27, MP), registration is not required, and attendance at any classes offered during the 13-week course is optional. Classes missed are opportunities lost to fine tune and improve your personal Fitness Walking Program. The instructor for this class will be top local endurance athlete and 42-time marathon finisher, Coach Jim Sasak. For information contact Billie Warren/Middlefield Rec. at 440/632-5248.
