Tamarac to celebrate 10th birthday with free classes for entire community, gift for founding members
FREMONT– Tamarac is turning 10 years old. To thank its members, the health and wellness center is throwing a birthday celebration on Saturday, December 16, with a morning full of free events and activities for everyone, members and nonmembers – plus a special gift for founding members who’ve been with Tamarac for 10 years.
“Tamarac and our staff are truly blessed to serve Newaygo County residents for 10 years and our success is all because we have terrific members who push us to provide exceptional service every day,” said Amanda Irwin, Wellness Center manager who has been associated with Tamarac since it opened its doors on Dec. 17, 2007. “Today, Tamarac has evolved into a place where people can find a fitness routine, join support groups for emotional and financial health, learn about topics that affect our daily lives, and so much more – all under one roof. We look forward to many more years of continuing to help our members achieve all their health and wellness goals. We invite everyone in our community and non-members to join us on Saturday, December 16, to check out all the great things we offer at Tamarac.”
The birthday celebration and community open house will take place from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. on what Tamarac is dubbing “Super Saturday.” Fitness instructors will offer free and highly popular classes open for everyone, including nonmembers, to try, ranging from knockout and spinning to yoga and aquatics exercises in the pool. Tamarac is also offering a host of specials for both nonmembers and members.
Today, Tamarac has 2,700 members, some of them living as far away as Muskegon and Hart. On any given day, 450 members check into the fitness center to use Tamarac’s many strength and cardio equipment, as well as its free weights, pool, hot tub, sauna and steam room. Tamarac is also home to the Skincare Center and Spa, and Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Services, which provides services for physical therapy, therapy for Parkinson’s and stroke patients, pelvic health for men and women, wound therapy and other specialized therapy services. In addition, Tamarac hosts a monthly free seminar for the community by local experts on a range of health and wellness, financial and community-based topics.
Super Saturday is free for members and nonmembers. Space is limited and preregistration is required. Visit tamaracwellness.org for class schedules and to reserve a spot.
