Blanco County residents don't have to drive to Bulverde, Boerne, or Dripping Springs to find exercise options. Gem of the Hills has expandied its fitness center to include an area for balance, core, flexibility, and functional training. The new space complements the area used for strength and cardiovascular exercise. The new “Gym at the Gem” is designed to meet the needs of the entire Blanco community. Seniors will find what they need to stay active. Women can use the space for functional training and flexibility work, and guys have the weight training equipment they enjoy.
Come and take a look at the gym, and sign up for one or more of the available classes. Have you ever wondered about Tai Chi or yoga? Are you curious about weight training and whether it is right for you? Do you have some exercise equipment you never really learned how to use? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, come out and visit the Gym at the Gem or contact one of the facilitators on the Contact page.
Fitness equipment at the Gem includes four treadmills, free weights, a Smith Machine, recumbent bicyle, eliptical trainer, and others. It is available to all Gem of the Hills members for a fee of only $15 per month. You can pay your gym membership online on the Dues/Merchandise page. If you prefer, you may call the office at (830) 833-2713 to pay by credit card. You may also mail in your check to the address on the Contact page.
