Riverside Athletic Club, Merrill CrossFit and Parisi Speed School are pleased to invite the community to their Open House on Saturday, Oct. 10 from 8 a.m.-12 p.m. at its location at 500 S. Center Ave. in Merrill.
The event is free and open to everyone in the community.
“We will have a number of things going on during this Open House event,” says Becci Shuman, Club Manager. “We are featuring free classes in our Parisi Speed School, Merrill CrossFit and Group Exercise. We are also going to have the best offer we have ever had for memberships. If anyone signs up for a membership with Riverside Athletic Club anytime between Thursday, Oct. 1 and 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10, they will get the rest of the year for free.
“In addition to this great offer to join Riverside, we will have fantastic offers for Parisi Speed School and Merrill CrossFit,” she continues. “If anyone has ever thought about joining a health club or one of these great opportunities, Oct. 1 through Oct. 10 is the time to do it.”
The events will begin at 8 a.m. with a Bounce House for the kids that will run all morning long. Various members of the Riverside staff will be in the dunk tank to raise money and food for our local Food Pantry. The cost will be two balls for $1 or one ball for a canned food donation. In addition, a Zumba Party will be held in the gymnasium at 11 a.m. The cost is $5 or five nonperishable food items. All proceeds will benefit our local food pantry.
Men and women can join Mindy in the Group Exercise Room for a free Step Aerobics class at 8 a.m. At 9 a.m. they can enjoy a Pilates class with Kathy while all kids ages 7 and up can participate in a Parisi Speed School class in the gym. At 10 a.m. there will be two events to choose from including a CrossFit class with Eric and Colton and a Yoga class with Charmaine. Of course, no event would be complete without free food which will be served all morning long.
“We really want to use this time to educate the community on the importance of physical fitness and demonstrate with various events that we offer here at the club that this can be a family event,” says Paul Kienitz, owner of Riverside Athletic Club. “We really have become a multi-use facility that is geared for all ages and fitness levels. We have something that can work for everyone, and we want to offer these free events to show the community what we have available. Our club membership is for literally all ages, our Parisi Speed School is for ages 7 through 18 and our Merrill CrossFit is for ages 15 and up. For our older population we also have Silver Sneakers memberships as well as specific classes geared toward this population.”
