    - Athletes First Program

    The “Athletes First” program is now available at Fitness for life.

    Developed by the Titleist Performance Institute and designed for young athletes, in two age groups (5-7 and 8-11 years old), the program’s goal is to develop athletic skills that apply to any sports.

    This program trains young athletes in fundamental movement through a progressive series of age appropriate skill acquisition drills in five specific areas:

    1.Locomotion movement skills
    2.Stability skills, (agility, balance, coordination and speed)
    3.Manipulation/object control skills
    4.Awareness skills (Kinesthetic awareness)
    5.Sport specific skills

    This program is designed to develop young athletes, both boys and girls, with well rounded skills that will make them a better athlete no matter what their chosen sport.

    Taught by Ed Kirkpatrick, a Titleist Performance Institute certified Trainer, the participants will start the first week and end during the last week with an initial assessment of athletic ability. This assessment will assure that each individual receives the most benefit from this program.

    Following the assessment, each class will provide a series of fun, but challenging drills to provide maximum skill development for each participant.

    Limited to 12 participants in a class, classes meet on Friday and will run for four weeks beginning on July 8th, and running until July 29th.
    Class times will be as follows:

    Young athletes 5-7 years old 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM Young athletes 8-11 years old 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

  • | 7:00pm - 9:00pm | Meeting, Genealogy
    - McHenry County Illinois Genealogical Society (MCIGS) will hosts a presentation by Marsha Peterson-Maass who will discuss, “A 60-Minute Crash Course: Beginning Genealogy Using Accredited Methods.” This is a fun look at accredited basics and research methodology suitable for everyone. If you're a beginner you'll take away a sense of what you need to be doing in your research. If you're an experienced genealogist you might be surprised to discover how much of the accredited methodology you only "sort of knew" and that knowing the accredited research precepts can actually help revitalize your current search. Topics are chosen directly from the Fundamentals of Genealogy®: Basics for Everyone textbook so it's easy to follow along with the talk. Textbooks are distributed before the lecture so participants can peruse them during the lecture and can optionally purchase to take home for $20/each (this price is a 20% discount).

    Marsha got her start in genealogy in high school when she entered a family history project in the State of Illinois History competition and tied for State Champion. Her first formal training in genealogy was at The Newberry Library-Chicago in the beginner’s class that she now teaches (since 2002). She is author of the Fundamentals of Genealogy® textbook series, blog and social media platforms. And today, along with teaching and lecturing on a wide range of topics, Marsha has a thriving forensic genealogy practice, called “Commercial DNA Analysis Services,” where she analyzes clients’ commercial DNA test results then offers a choice of several reports including the topics of → Unknown Parentage, Ethnicity Review, Building Family Trees, DNA Comparison of Siblings and Customized Questions. And this year, she was invited to join television celebrity CeCe Moore’s team at “The DNA Detectives” where they help adoptees find biological relatives thru commercial DNA analysis

    The meeting will be held at The Pointe, 5650 Northwest Highway, Crystal Lake, IL 60014 (next to Target) at 7:00 pm Thursday, June 9, 2016.
