Shape Up In The New Year

It's New Year's resolution call-to-action time, and the Englewood Recreation Center and Swedish Medical Center have your back. Today kicks off their Fitness Challenge, a free, three-month long commitment to get interested parties moving. From 8 a.m. to noon today, participants can sign up to get a free scan card to keep track of workouts -- just three visits to the rec center each week will get you entered for weekly prizes -- from January 7 to March 25.

"Our goal is for people to cement the habit of exercising three times a week," says program director Rowan Velasquez. Free spine, blood pressure and glucose checks will also be part of the challenge's opening ceremonies, along with a dietitian and physical therapist on hand to answer any additional health-related questions. A pilates class open house will follow at 12:30 p.m., along with refreshments and door prizes.
