Keep yours with PACE Not long ago, a national survey was taken on New Year's resolu- tions. The number one resolution reported was to lose weight or get into better shape. One of the most effective ways to improve your physical condi- tioning is through PACE, Progressive Aerobic Circuit Exercise. The Ortonville PACE program has been around since 1993. Over the past years, it has been a proven effective way to help improve a person's overall fitness. PACE utilizes hydraulic exercise machines to strengthen muscles without soreness, along with aerobic recovery stations that keep the heart rate at an aerobic level using stair steppers and step benches. The PACE program is simple, safe, and effective. A person can get a good, total workout in 14 to 21 minutes, three days per week. Along with.PACE, the Ortonville High School fitness center also has Universal Gym weight machines, exercise bikes, treadmill, free weights, and more to add additional variety. All of this is available for only $30, which will take you from January through the end of April. The cost for senior citizens age 55 and older is only $25. PACE is one of the best bargains in fitness today. The PACE schedule has recently expanded to serve the public dur- ing winter months.
