BI Fit Begins Operations on March 4th!
BI Fit is a unique community collaboration between Island residents and the Beaver Island Community School (BICS) that creates the opportunity for Island residents to exercise in the BICS gymnasium. In addition to walking the perimeter of the gym, members can work out on various exercise equipment, including a treadmill, exercise bike, and a rowing machine in the BI Fit Zone.
Use of the gym is limited to specific times when trained volunteers are on hand to ensure safety and anyone using the equipment must be a member of BI Fit. Membership requirements include paying an annual fee ($15.00 for the remainder of this school year), signing a membership agreement, completing a member participant waiver/consent for emergency treatment form, and having a Michigan State Police background check.
Exercise sessions begin the week of March 4, 2019. Membership registration packets are available now at the BICS office or at the BI Fit tab on the Beaver Island Community School website (www.beaverisland.k12.mi.us). Get a membership packet to fill out today so you can start exercising on March 4th!
Special thanks to the Beaver Island Rural Health Center, the Charlevoix County Community Foundation, and private donations of time, money, and equipment. Also, a huge thanks to the many volunteers who have contributed their time to become BI Fit Exercise Monitors. BI Fit would not be possible without this outpouring of support!
We hope you enjoy BI Fit. We are here to provide a place that fosters health, wellness, and longevity. Have Fun!
