The biggest obstacle many people face when trying to lose weight or stay healthy is finding a convenient place to exercise.
LVL 10 Lifestyle & Fitness is trying to help the community lose weight, cook healthier meals for their families and get well. And, Chris Bradley and his team of coaches try to make it easy by coming to them, showing people how to use the spaces in their neighborhoods for fitness, and not forcing them to join a gym.
Schools – with their tracks, fields and courts – are perfect places for the community to be active. However, when Bradley tried to reserve space, he found out the schools were charging $90 an hour, “and it was too much money,” he said. “We never ended up using the space because the cost was unacceptable.”
“The benefit is mainly for the community, not for me,” he said. “The benefit would be helping the community to lose weight through exercise, fitness, nutrition and the like classes. … For public schools, taxpayers in the community pay for it, so it should be accessible to them.”
Tell your councilperson that you’d like to be able to use the recreation spaces when school isn’t in session.
