Affordable fitness options at the Lincoln Rec Center can help fulfill your healthy ambitions

By Kelli Nesbitt, Parks & Recreation Marketing Coordinator

If the cost or contract of a gym membership keeps you from starting a fitness program, we have good news – you don’t need to join a gym to improve your health and quality of life.

The Lincoln Recreation Center offers a lineup of energetic fitness classes, open gym times, and a well-equipped fitness center accessible through memberships for those 16 years and older.

The monthly cost is only $15 for residents and $18 for non-residents, with a daily option of $3 for residents and $5 for non-residents. Get your pass at the Lincoln Recreation Center or call 979-764-3779.

Here’s a look at the weekly schedule. Classes won’t be available Sept. 5, Nov. 23-25, and Dec. 19-Jan. 2.

Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-8 p.m. & Friday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.

The facility has cardio machines, a weight training circuit, single-station machines, and free-weight equipment, such as benches, barbells, and dumbbells.

Monday & Thursday, 5:45-6:30 p.m.

Enjoy the popular fitness program inspired by Latin dance, using dance moves and cardiovascular exercises to upbeat Latin music. Zumba® is easy-to-learn aerobic dancing. All levels are welcome.

Monday & Wednesday, 6-8 p.m.

Shoot around with your friends or play a pick-up game. Courts are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reservations aren’t accepted, and basketballs aren’t provided.

Wednesday, 5:45-6:30 p.m.

We’re using your favorite hip-hop songs and easy-to-follow dance moves for a high-energy dance experience you will love. The hyped dance class provides a beneficial cardio workout and burns calories while improving strength, alleviating stress, easing depression, and unleashing exercise endorphins.

Tuesday-Thursday, 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m.

Practice your pickleball skills, play in a pick-up match, meet friends, and stay active. All skill levels are welcome. Balls and nets are provided.

We also encourage you to get outside and take advantage of your local parks. Every step counts, whether you commit to walking once a week, taking the kids to the playground, or attending a fitness class.
