We have been fortunate enough to have the wonderful Fluid Running instructors conduct classes at our newly established facility, WEST Superior Training. The level of energy and excitement that the instructors bring to each class have those who participate coming back for more! Each instructor accommodates the runners’ needs to ensure they get the most out of their workouts. There have been group classes, trial runs, private lessons, and semi-private lessons that have drawn in clients that swear by the aquatic workout. We have seen an influx of interest and demand in the Fluid Running programs, as well as our facility programs in general, since opening last summer. We could not be more pleased with how well the classes are being received, but more importantly, how well they are run.
The Oak Brook Park District is extremely proud to have been the launching pad for Fluid Running. The innovative nature of this program and its health benefits quickly gained national recognition. We are thrilled to be able to provide new wellness and therapeutic opportunities to people of all ages in and around our community. The Fluid Running program has added new energy our water exercise offerings and has helped generate thousands of dollars in new revenue each year. We are excited to see the progress that our participants have made and the fresh approach to aquatic exercise.
