  • shape-up Shape-Up teams sprint to a close finish

    Eight weeks ago, I walked into the first Community Shape-Up training session and I saw a group that could barely make it through 30 seconds of jumping jacks without looking a little queasy. I was nervous for the 89 participants who signed up for the Kokomo Tribune and Club Fitness 24’s annual weight-loss contest, to say the least.

  • community shape up 1 0223 Shape-Up contestants learn about accountability At the end of Saturday’s Community Shape-Up workout, more than 45 participants lined Club Fitness 24’s speed track in plank position — hovering their bodies several inches above the ground, balancing on their forearms and toes.

    Their mission — hold the position as long as possible. Last one standing wins bragging rights as well as a stronger midsection.
