Second year, special rates at fitness center inside Rhinelander High School
RHINELANDER - Rhinelander offers community members a few different options for staying fit.

The city's newest option might be its most creative and affordable.

The Aspirus Community Fitness Center and Heck Pool are getting set for their second year of serving the public.

Both are located inside Rhinelander High School.

"I'd love to see it packed all the time. We don't want these facilities to be Rhinelander's best kept secret. It is used a lot, but we want it to be used even more," says the district's Community Education Coordinator, Mike Cheslock.

The facilities include free weights, machines, cardio equipment, and the pool.

They're used by Hodag sports teams and phy ed classes during the day.

But they're open to the public in the morning, evenings, and on Saturdays.

The school is trying hard to get even more people excited about what they offer.

"The entire month of September is a free membership for Rhinelander employees and their families. The first two weeks of October is a free trial membership for everyone in the community and their family," says Cheslock.

Monthly memberships start at $15 for the general public.
