Fairview Park Recreation Department at the Gemini Center hosts an impressive array of classes—20 each week. They take advantage of the brand new facility's amenities, holding spinning classes in dedicated cycling rooms or teaching aquatic skills in the aerobic studio. They also hold outdoor classes during summer months, taking advantage of the sunshine and green lawns. "It's great to see members push themselves and have fun while doing it," reports the Center's group-exercise coordinator.
Beyond fitness instruction, they also use the facility to host summer camps, athletic leagues, and families looking for a day at the pool. They even built a second pool, exclusively for leisure, with waterslides, a lazy river, and submerged beauty parlors.
As founding members of the newly established Ultimate Indoor Football League (UIFL), the Canton Cougars will start the inaugural UIFL season from their den inside the Canton Civic Center. Catch the Cougars on February 25 as they pounce upon the prodigious Northern Kentucky River Monsters like a cat over a fishbowl, or witness the sharp passing attack up close and personal on March 21, when the Cougars aim to thump the swift buzzers of the Saginaw Sting. Fans not accustomed to arena football will want to experience the game’s persistent action, high-scoring outcomes, hard-hitting tackles, and referees with 50s-era jetpacks.
