Fitness is more than working out and watching your diet. It's also a state of mind and body that goes a long way toward helping you avoid many of our most common health problems and to enjoy a feeling of well being that lifts every aspect of your life.
Fitness helps provide the strength and stamina to get through the challenges of your day. You will be sick less often and will heal faster when you are ill or injured. You greatly increase the odds of a longer life. And not only will you virtually ensure that every day is a little better and a little brighter, but you will also be better able to achieve more of your dreams.
Fit 2007 is designed as a way to encourage and support your personal search for greater fitness, not just this summer but for the rest of your life. All you have to do is choose the exercise or exercises that fit your life and lifestyle and set yourself a goal exercising regularly. The choice of exercise is up to you and may be something as simple as a daily walk. Or it may be a combination of two or more workouts -- swimming, jogging, walking, cycling, or even chopping wood. Design your plan to include at least 30 minutes of exercise a day, 5 days a week.
Be a part of Fit 2007 in the greater Kalamazoo area and join your community in becoming more fit!

The Great Lakes Adventure Club (GLAC) was originally founded in 1977 as a climbing club. Its founders were affiliated with Western Michigan University and the Adventure Centre at Pretty Lake (ACPL), reportedly Bob Knerr and Lee Snooks of the Adventure Centre at Pretty Lake.
GLAC has a long and rich history. Early on, caving was one of the club's more popular activities. Many trips included exploration of caves in southern Indiana. These were noncommercial caves- so members needed to bring their own lights, helmets, and other spelunking gear. The trips were designed to build group synergism and self-confidence. Later the club started doing other outdoor adventures such as canoeing and whitewater rafting, in addition to their original rock climbing activities.
GLAC has grown in membership to 80+ members who enjoy these non-motorized outdoor activities: backpacking, biking (mountain and street), canoeing, hiking, kayaking (sea, river, and white water), orienteering, rock climbing (outdoors and gym), rollerblading, sailing, SCUBA diving, skiing (cross-country and downhill), snowboarding, snowshoeing, trail running, and white water rafting.
Their goal is to have as much outdoor fun as they can stand while treading lightly in nature. Visit the GLAC website to learn more about this great Kalamazoo club.
