Botsford News Release


Fat Tuesday Is Fit at Botsford

Novi, Mich. (February 1, 2010)---Fat Tuesday is coming and for many that involves eating paczkis and forgetting their fitness goals. A typical five-ounce paczki contains about 420 calories, 25 or more grams of fat and is loaded with refined carbohydrates that are directly converted into fat. That’s why the Botsford Center for Health Improvement (BCHI) is offering its 3rd Annual Fit Tuesday. The day is devoted to helping you exercise off those paczkis and to learn simple recipe substitutions for healthier eating. 
Stop by BCHI on Tuesday, February 16, between 10:00 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. for free group exercise classes. Location: 39750 Grand River Avenue just west of Haggerty Road in Novi. No reservations needed. 
10:00 to 11:00 a.m. 
"Intermediate Water Aerobics" for energizing exercises in a warm-water pool. 
4:00 to 6:00 p.m. 
"Ask the Dietician" to explore simple recipe substitutions to make your family’s meals fitter. 
6:00 to 7:00 p.m. 
"Sculpted Soldiers" will allow you to challenge yourself in a group setting with free weight, agility and cardio exercises all in one dynamic circuit. 
6:00 to 7:00 p.m. 
"Beginning Spinning" is an indoor cycling class that will show you how to set up your bike and spin your way to a great workout. 
7:30 to 8:30 p.m. 
"ZUMBA!" will have you dancing away extra calories with fun and easy-to-follow Latin-inspired movements and music. 
The Botsford Center for Health Improvement is the first medical model fitness center in Metro Detroit. More than a health club, BCHI offers a complete wellness approach to all of its programs, emphasizing prevention and lifestyle change. BCHI is owned by Botsford Hospital.
