Fear of exercise? Open house will exorcize that scary notion!


Some of the scariest words in the English language are health-related. Cancer. Surgery. Blockage. Terminal. Exercise.

Exercise? Yes, exercise. Generally speaking, this nation is scared to death of exercise, and according to Dave Nachtigal, owner of the Falls City Fitness Center, the age group that is most frightened is the one that needs it most.  Those who are 50 and older.

Why are we so scared? We’ve heard all of our lives that exercise improves overall health.  We know it makes us feel better!  Yet most of us are too afraid to even investigate the local gym.  We have no idea how to run the equipment.  Plus, we think if we walk in the door just to ask questions, a pushy salesman will convince us to join.

If any of this sounds familiar, then Thursday, Nov. 14th, is your lucky day.  It’s the 10-year anniversary of the Fitness Center, and Dave and Laurie Nachtigal and their staffs at the Fitness Center, Physical and Respiratory Therapy Services, and Personal Care, Inc., are hosting an open house all day at the Fitness Center so members can celebrate, and non-members can see just how non-threatening “the gym” can really be.
