NOLANVILLE — Building a sense of community through a family fitness program is the main objective of Army Maj. Kara Escajeda.

Escajeda has worked with the city manager to implement a free community fitness program, which starts next week in Nolanville.

“Results are hard to achieve with just a focus on diet or exercise,” she said. “My approach will be to provide an exposure to a different fitness activity each week.”

The sessions will include line dancing, karate, interval training, coach to 5K strategies, and a group walk, depending on the participant’s goals, she said.

“We kick off the sessions with a discussion from ‘Commit to Wellness’ because overall wellness is best achieved with both.”

The program will include nutritional classes and focus on participants adding healthy habits rather than eliminating bad ones.

“I’ve been communicating with other instructors in different disciplines to see if they would be interested in holding a class,” she said.

The nutrition class and line dancing will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. starting Wednesday at the J.W. Sims Community Center, 408 N. 10th St., Nolanville.
