Group Mission

This group will provide education, training, and networking opportunities for Parks and Recreation professionals who are responsible for health and wellness classes and services. It will support recreation professionals who desire to learn how to improve the health and wellness of their community members through the addition of new programs.  It will provide opportunities for seasoned fitness professionals to share their knowledge.  The group will support the VRPS mission. 


Meetings are held via Microsoft Teams.  Email [email protected] to request a meeting invite and/or to be added to the group list. 

Save the date!  The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, December 1st at 10am.  Join us as our Chair-Elect Michelle Atkin presents: Building a Group Fitness Program.  How? When? Where? How did the pandemic change the field? From indoors to outdoors to virtual.
