Adult Recreation Programs

Get in shape or stay in shape with our adult rec programs

The focus of our Sports & Fitness Ministry at McEachern Memorial United Methodist Church is best defined by II Corinthians 4:18 “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”

Emphasis is placed on Christ-likeness. Our Ministry seeks to strengthen adults, children and their families by maximizing ministry opportunities through exposing participants to Scripture-based devotions during each program.

Walking Track

Establishing a walking routine isn’t difficult here at McEachern UMC! We offer an indoor walking track located on the 3rd floor of our beautiful Christian Life Center. Walking is a great way to burn calories, stimulate blood circulation and lower cholesterol levels.

The walking track is open during the following times:

Monday-Saturday: 6:00 am – 9:00 pm

Sunday: 1:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Info: 14 laps is equal to 1 mile

The walking track is open to anyone who would like to come out and get some exercise. Don’t let cold weather, rain, or extreme summer heat keep you from the benefits of walking!

Cardio Exercise

Cardio is one of the most important things you can do for your body, whether you want to lose weight, build muscle, or improve your health. Pilates and Yoga help you gain muscle control, increase flexibility, and develop long lean muscles. Workout at your own pace and improve your cardio-vascular system while having fun and enjoying the fellowship with other members.

Cardio Exercise meets at Higher Ground on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 7:00-8:00 pm. Questions? Please contact Clyde Tallent at 770-439-6581.

*Cardio Exercise if offered free of charge!
