News Release for the Week
December 19, 2016
If you are a PRIME Fitness member, you know
that we have a new Fitness Assistant. Enfield resident, Alaina Watson,
completed her B.S. degree in Exercise Science with a minor in Dance from
Central Connecticut State University. She is a Certified Exercise Physiologist
and completed her internship at the Hospital for Special Care Fitness Center
doing Personal Training. Alaina has been designing programs and assisting
members with their exercises. We are very fortunate to have Alaina. Please
welcome her when you see her.
In addition to a new Fitness Assistant, we
have brand new beautiful strength training equipment in the PRIME Fitness Center.
This equipment was purchased with a bequest from long time member Don Taylor
for the Enfield Senior Center. The Friends of the Enfield Senior Center also
contributed funds to make this purchase possible. We will have a dedication at
a later date. Don Taylor’s generous contribution will enable older adults in
the Enfield community be healthier.
