Youth ages 9 to 12 are required to obtain written authorization from the child’s physician prior to registration.
Complimentary Fitness Orientation
A fitness orientation is an information session, typically 60 minutes in length, that will provide you with the basics of how to use the weight machines and cardio equipment here at the HCC. You will learn how to start, stop and change settings on the cardio equipment and the proper techniques and usage of the weight machines.
Fitness Orientations are by appointment only. To schedule an orientation, please contact our Assistant Director, David Killpack at 816.380.8980, ext. 5986 or the Recreation Coordinator of Athletics, Vince Schroeder at ext. 5988.

Knowing your body fat percentage can help you to set realistic and healthy weight loss goals. Testing takes approximately 15 to 20 minutes with a certified personal trainer.
Exercise: Seven Benefits of Regular Physical Activity
Want to feel better, have more energy and perhaps even live longer? Look no further than exercise. The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. And the benefits of exercise are yours for the taking, regardless of your age, sex, or physical ability. Need more convincing to exercise? Check out these seven ways exercise can improve your life.
Number 1: Exercise Controls Weight
Exercise can help prevent excess weight gain or help maintain weight loss. When you engage in physical activity, you burn calories. The more intense the activity, the more calories you burn. You don’t need to set aside large chunks of time for exercise to reap weight-loss benefits. If you can’t do an actual workout, get more active throughout the day in simple ways - by taking the stairs instead of the elevator or revving up your household chores.
Number 2: Exercise Combats Health Conditions & Diseases
Worried about heart disease? Hoping to prevent high blood pressure? No matter what your current weight, being active boosts high-density lipoprotein (HDL), or "good," cholesterol and decreases unhealthy triglycerides. This one-two punch keeps your blood flowing smoothly, which decreases your risk of cardiovascular diseases. In fact, regular physical activity can help you prevent or manage a wide range of health problems and concerns, including stroke, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, depression, certain types of cancer, arthritis, and falls.
Number 3: Exercise Improves Mood
Need an emotional lift? Or need to blow off some steam after a stressful day? A workout at the gym or a brisk 30-minute walk can help. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed. You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem.
Number 4: Exercise Boosts Energy
Winded by grocery shopping or household chores? Regular physical activity can improve your muscle strength and boost your endurance. Exercise and physical activity deliver oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and help your cardiovascular system work more efficiently. And when your heart and lungs work more efficiently, you have more energy to go about your daily chores.
Number 5: Exercise Promotes Better Sleep
Struggling to fall asleep? Or to stay asleep? Regular physical activity can help you fall asleep faster and deepen your sleep. Just don’t exercise too close to bedtime, or you may be too energized to fall asleep.
Number 6: Exercise Puts the Spark Back into Your Sex Life
Do you feel too tired or too out of shape to enjoy physical intimacy? Regular physical activity can leave you feeling energized and looking better, which may have a positive effect on your sex life. But there’s more to it than that. Regular physical activity can lead to enhanced arousal for women. And men who exercise regularly are less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction than are men who don’t exercise.
Number 7: Exercise Can Be Fun
Exercise and physical activity can be a fun way to spend some time. It gives you a chance to unwind, enjoy the outdoors or simply engage in activities that make you happy. Physical activity can also help you connect with family or friends in a fun social setting. So, take a dance class, hit the hiking trails or join a soccer team. Find a physical activity you enjoy, and just do it. If you get bored, try something new.
The Bottom Line on Exercise
Exercise and physical activity are a great way to feel better, gain health benefits and have fun. As a general goal, aim for at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. If you want to lose weight or meet specific fitness goals, you may need to exercise more. Remember to check with your doctor before starting a new exercise program, especially if you have any health concerns.
