ACSC Winter Olympics

January is typically the month that people get excited and pumped up to get healthier for the new year. Whether it's because they get bored, intimidated, or because they aren't getting the results they were hoping for, people just find it hard to keep up the habit through February.

To help our members stay motivated, ACSC will be hosting our own version of the Winter Olympic Games. Starting February 6, we have set aside 3 weeks for members to be challenged like an Olympian. Our hope is that The Games will encourage people to continue their fitness journey. We will give them an opportunity to learn new workouts, try a new class, and discover new equipment at ACSC.

Mark your calendar for our Opening Ceremony scheduled for Monday, February 5, 5-6pm (Open House style)! The Ceremony will include the "Lighting of the Torch", which will burn in the lobby (and hearts) of Alta Canyon throughout the 3 weeks. There will be an option for each participant to create their own flag to represent them and be showcased on the wall. We will have light refreshments, Declare the Games officially OPEN, and have a balloon drop.

SIGN UP ONLINE or in person at the Center! Registration is FREE for members and included a limited edition ACSC Winter Olympic shirt!  (Must be registered before February 9 to guarantee a shirt.)
