Dues Increase Effective July 2014

JUNE 2014

Dear Council Grove Life Center Member,

Memberships like yours have been essential to the Life Center over the nine years of operation and growth, especially as we continue to provide and expand our quality services for all fitness levels and ages.

Our memberships include a full schedule of Group Exercise classes led by experienced, certified, and knowledgeable instructors, including yoga, Step Aerobics, Silver Sneakers®, Runners’ groups, Zumba® Fitness, and our newest addition—one of the biggest fitness trends today—TRX® Suspension Training. The Life Center has a Personal Trainer and Health Coach on staff to help our members meet their health and fitness goals, and our free-weight room has been a much appreciated addition since its completion a year ago. We want your membership at the Life Center to be a first-rate fitness experience; therefore, the Board of Directors has authorized a membership dues increase to help maintain and update our equipment and facility.

Effective July 1, 2014, our membership fees will increase. Please speak to one of our helpful staff members for details on your membership type. We always recommend that our members consider our alternative payment options, such as Automatic Bank Withdrawal, as the savings with these options are substantial.

We thank you for your support of the Council Grove Life Center, and we appreciate your continued involvement in our future.

Julie Hower
