GYPSUM — The shine has rubbed off on the new year and many local residents have likely lost enthusiasm for their fitness program resolutions.

The Gypsum Recreation Center wants to help everyone revive their resolution appetite.

“We always get people who come in starting in January,” said Lucas Rivera, of the Gypsum Recreation Center. “But what people really need is a program for when they get tired of doing that, when they have lost the hunger for their goals.”

Resolution Revive Program features a box full of fitness tools to help maintain New Year’s resolutions. The first is a special Gypsum Recreation Center exercise class planned every Thursday from 5:30 to 6:30. Class begins March 2 and runs through May 4.

Rivera will be the course instructor and the high intensity class will feature TRX suspension training, body weight movements and light weights. This class will only be available to Resolution Revive participants.

“People are intimidated sometimes to come to fitness classes,” Rivera said.

He noted the Resolution Revive setting will be a smaller group featuring like-minded students, which will hopefully help people who are intimated by larger classes.

Along with the training, Resolution Revive participants will get deals and swag. All participants will receive a Polar watch with heart rate monitor. The watches track calories burned and heart rate.

“It’s a really cool watch and it has a big display that you can read,” Rivera said.

The Resolution Revive fee also includes an entry to all four Gypsum race series events — Dirty Dozen Mud Run, Neon Dash 5k, Gypsum Daze 5K and Zombie Run 5k. Additionally, participants will receive a Resolution Revive T-shirt and a coupon for 25 percent off a pair of shoes at Peak Performance Footwear.

The deadline to register for the Resolution Revive program is Monday, Feb. 27. The fitness package is valued at more than $300, but the cost is $149 for Gypsum Recreation Center members and $249 for non members. Sign up at the Gypsum Recreation Center or online at
