In conjunction with NuFIT, Quincy University is hosting a “Baby Boomer Bootcamp” to improve health and wellness education for men and women 50 years of age and higher. Held at Quincy University’s Health and Fitness Center (20th and Oak), classes are held on Wednesdays from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. beginning November 13 and ending December 18. A registration and informational session will be held Wednesday, November 6 at 1:00 p.m. in the same location. Those wishing to learn more and/or register for the program are encouraged to attend.
Led by Kelly Baker (NuFIT) and Kathy Kovachevich (QU), each course in the six-week program will consist of 15 minutes of health education, 30 minutes of dry land fitness, and 30-40 minutes of aqua fitness in the university swimming pool. Topics to be discussed include: cardio/heart rate training, hydration, strength training/joint issues, stretching, nutrition/holiday survival plans, and emotional health.
The program is $60 per person and is open to all members of the public (i.e. one does not need to be a member of QU or NuFIT to join the program). For more information, contact Angie Asmann at 217-779-5053 or by e-mail at
