Christian Craig Executive Director Edgar May Health & Recreation

Christian Craig, executive director of the Edgar May Health and Recreation Center in Springfield, spoke to Rotary on June first at the Fullerton Inn. He highlighted the Center's preventive medicine program, which is geared to help area residents of all ages and current physical abilities live a healthy lifestyle.
The Edgar May Center offers three indoor swimming pools and a large fitness center that includes cardiovascular and strength equipment. It holds 35 group exercise classes each week, including spinning (indoor cycling), water aerobics, Pilates, and TRX as well as personal training. A new summer learn-to-row program in collaboration with Vermont Academy teaches the basics of Olympic-style rowing. Annual events include an indoor triathlon, Thanksgiving Day 5K, Move to Improve, and Prescription for an Exercise program.
Craig's first charge from the Edgar May board was to keep the whole thing affordable. It is very much so. Its interest is your well-being at a cost you can afford. More information can be found here.
