Roundup Church Hosts Exercise Seminar

The Roundup (Mont.) Church hosted a two-day exercise seminar at the the Roundup Memorial Hospital and Nursing Home in July.

The class was taught by Kim Unterseher and Jenda Jones. Unterseher holds a bachelor's degree in physical education and health from Walla Walla College (WWC). Jones is a junior physical therapy major at WWC. Both were employed during the summer by the Montana Conference summer youth ministries program.

Jones' presentation during the first evening offered information about the benefits of exercise, how to fit exercise into a busy schedule, and how to design a successful program. She and Unterseher then demonstrated some exercises.

On the second evening, Unterseher and Jones led participants through a circuit-training regimen that involved the various muscle groups of the body and brought each person to their target heart rate. The regimen included the use of exercise balls and free weights.

The exercise seminar followed two other health-related seminars hosted by the church, including the Eight Weeks to Wellness program and a four-session healthy cooking seminar.
