Rutland Fitness Center a Huge Success!

The Rutland Fitness Center has now officially been open for over a year — and it has shown!  Several community members have shed pounds and “buffed up” and some of the equipment has worn out.  The two new treadmills are fully paid for and a new ‘industrial style’ elliptical machine may be coming in the future.  In addition, there have been aerobics classes available two times a week and yoga classes are held once every two weeks.  If there is sufficient interest, the classes may be expanded and offered at other times and days.  (Check the Rutland ND website for the class calendar).

The Rutland Fitness Center occupies the American Legion building and there is an agreement to continue to utilize the facility. The Center pays an annual fee for the building use and to help with some improvements.  Shingles were replaced last year with the Center obtaining a small grant and contributing $500 to help with some expenses incurred with that project.

Congratulations and keep up the good work!

Weight No More!

Weight No More! Those are the words on the front of the new brochure for the Rutland Fitness Center. We want to attract a bunch of losers to the Center, so Val Pherson of Rutland, who is a sophomore in graphic design at Dakota State University in Madison, South Dakota, designed the brochure. We think it’s a cleverly informational piece of work. Paying for design like this out in the market place would have cost us money we don’t have and Val has done us a big favor by designing this brochure for us. She figures it’s a win/win deal as she gets some practice in her chosen profession and something for her portfolio to impress future employers. Everybody wins. Now, that’s how we like to see things done.
