Utilize what is available
How many times have we all heard it?
“Metcalfe County doesn’t have anything.”
“There’s nothing to do in Edmonton.”
“You have to drive thirty miles for everything.”
And more specifically, “If Edmonton had a new gym I’d use it, but…”.
Thanks to a grant and the efforts of the Metcalfe County School system and Community Education, a brand new gym with brand new state-of-the-art equipment is available. It’s centrally located in the middle of Edmonton and the county in a refurbished space in the old elementary school.
It offers 24-hour access, classes for every age, personality type and fitness level, and is reasonably priced. So, excuses be gone.
I’ve now had the opportunity to work out at the gym, and the only negative thing I can say is that there aren’t enough people using the facility yet, but I hope that changes.
It truly is a great addition to the community, and it’s something that community and school system can be proud of.
They offer monthly, quarterly and yearly memberships with discounts for students and elderly people. If you’ve yet to see it, go take a tour.
