Instructor of the Month: Bethany Tenpenny

This is an exciting time for Group Fitness Instructor Bethany who—after earning Pro status at her first WBFF (World Beauty Fitness & Fashion) competition in KC—traveled to Las Vegas to compete in WBFF Worlds on Aug. 15 & 16. Here at home, Bethany is a mom of two boys and a 16-year fitness instructor. In Group Power and her challenging and varied cardio classes, Bethany demonstrates daily the goal of group fitness: great fun, good health and tremendous strength.

Saturdays in Group Fitness

We love Saturdays as much as anyone – maybe more – but for us, it’s because we WORK on Saturdays! Find a class to suit any taste: sculpt your muscles with Group Power (7:15 and 10:30 a.m.) and Yoga Sculpt (8:30); come to Group Ride at 8:30 or 10:30 for your sweat and calorie burn, or lose yourself in the music and dance at 9:30 Zumba.

Infant and Young Child Survival Swimming Program

Infant Swimming Resource (ISR), the safest provider of survival swimming lessons for babies and toddlers from six months to six years old, today announced that it will be offering its Self-Rescue™ program in Wichita, KS, beginning on September 8, 2014.

“Sometimes, everything we do is not enough to keep a child from drowning. Even with alarms, door locks, pool fences and supervision, children can escape from protective care and find themselves in trouble,” says Ashleigh Bullivant, Infant Swimming Resource Certified Master Instructor. “At ISR, we arm children with the skills to survive if they were to accidentally end up in the water alone.”

ISR integrates swimming skills that are developmentally appropriate for young children, teaching them to save their own lives, while building the confidence that can lead to a lifetime of fun in and around the water.  For more than 45 years, ISR has successfully provided over 8 million safe and effective lessons to infants and young children.

The ISR lesson experience is a comprehensive six-week program where each lesson is customized for the child as they are safely guided through the learning process.  
Lessons for a 6-12 month old focus on teaching the child to roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe, and to be able to maintain this life-saving position until help arrives.
Lessons for children 1-6 years old focus on teaching the swim-float-swim survival sequence. Children learn to swim with their head down; roll onto their back to float, rest, and breathe; and roll back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool, where they can either crawl out or until they can be rescued.
