FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Incline Village Recreation Center offers online wellness programs (April 7, 2020)
As the world adjusts to the current reality of social distancing and temporary closures of important public spaces and community events, the staff at the Incline Village Recreation Center have put together a new series of “Look Up” remote wellness and recreation programming designed to foster healthy lifestyles and community connections during the COVID-19 crisis.
The free online content series offers fitness classes, nutrition lectures, personal training tips,children’s programs, golf tips and community messaging for Recreation Center members,local residents and the extended Incline Village/Crystal Bay community.
“Our goal with the Look Up programming is to promote a holistic approach to wellness during these unprecedented times,” said Sheila Leijon, Fitness, Health and Wellness Manager at the Incline Village Recreation Center. “The Rec Center has long been referred to as the heart of our community because of all the great community classes and programming we provide; so we felt a real urgency to maintain that role, even if we have to switch to an online model for delivering our programming.”

“We have been talking about virtual programming for some time and with the recent closure of the Rec Center we decided to make it happen,” said Kerrie Tonking, Operations Coordinator at the Incline Village Recreation Center. “We are disappointed that we are unable to interact with our community face-to-face, but proud to provide quality programming that our community and members can access from home. It’s going well so far, and we hope to continue virtual offerings even after our venues reopen.”
