The new Proctor Fitness Center, a partnership with St. Luke's, is officially open and ready to help people achieve their 2019 goals. 

Brand new workout equipment has been installed, and a physical therapist and two personal trainers are now on staff. 

Shannon Polson, the fitness center coordinator, said her best advice for fitness goals is to be consistent. 

"Don't look for instant gratification. It all is a process," Polson said. "And don't go into it too hard. Just go slow. Start with maybe one day a week, to 2-3 days a week, and then gradually over a couple months, increase yourself into four or five days a week."

Polson will also be teaching classes like Vinyasa Yoga and Pilates. 

New members are eligible for a free half-hour training session. 

"If you are kind of unsure how to get started, a trainer can help you with goals, go over all of the equipment ... so anytime you come into the fitness center, you feel safe and knowledgeable on what you're doing to reach your goals," Polson said.

There are free events the rest of the week too.
