Circuit training center opens in Minocqua, offers full-body workouts in 30 minutes
MINOCQUA - A new fitness center in Minocqua aims to give people full-body workouts in just 30 minutes.

Sixel's Circuit Fit is a program that uses high intensity interval training. That type of training requires you to work for several minutes to get your heart rate up then take short breaks that keep you moving.

"Something like this just fits everybody from the seniors to our youth, to our extreme athletes," said Personal Fitness and Martial Arts Instructor Dave Sixel.


Inside, you'll find different stations that have punching bags, ropes, and kettlebells.

"This is like a dream come true for me," said Sixel. "We've had a lot of calling for it [here in] Minocqua. [I have] a lot of clients here already and it seemed to fit just perfect."

Sixel says what makes this fitness center so different is how quickly you can complete a workout. You go to each station for only a few minutes then have an "active rest" in between.

"When you're here you're going to be greeted by a personal trainer and we're here to correct your form, help you out, to motivate and keep you rocking all the way through the circuits," said Sixel.

Sixel also says there aren't any scheduled classes because anyone can walk in and start the circuit whenever the center is open.

"It's a very open schedule for the person that really doesn't have much time, but you know, if they want to sneak over in their lunch hour, before work, after work…'Hey, come on in we're open,'" said Sixel.

Sixel and his team of personal trainers come up with the workouts. The stations can change daily and are all geared towards full body training.

NORTHWOODS - Wisconsin's lakes have a lot to offer their visitors. But some, like aquatic invasive species, are unwelcome due to the damage they can cause to native ecosystems.

There's a growing effort to prevent, contain, and control the spread of these aquatic invasive species, especially this holiday weekend. As part of the Clean Boats, Clean Waters program, volunteers will be stationed across popular boat landings, doing inspections and educating boaters on how to properly clean their boats.

"Any type of holiday weekend, especially the fourth of July when there's a lot more boat traffic, there's an emphasis on getting more awareness out there," said DNR recreation warden Justin Bender.

Aside from volunteers, most boat landings also have information posted on aquatic invasive species and the laws regarding boat cleaning. Citations for not properly cleaning your boats typically run $200-300.

MADISON, WI - Cigarette smoking rates have dropped since Wisconsin's Smoke-Free Indoor Air Law went into effect 10 years ago.

In 2008, before the law passed, 20% of Wisconsin adults smoked cigarettes. By 2018, the rate had dropped to 16%. High school youth cigarette smoking rates dropped from nearly 21% in 2008 to nearly 5% in 2018.

State cigarette taxes were also increased during this time period and contribute to this reduction.

"Wisconsin is breathing easier today thanks to this law, but we know there are many people in our state who still smoke," said DHS Secretary-Designee Andrea Palm. "We urge smokers to take advantage of the programs available to help them to quit, especially now during the COVID-19 pandemic, as people who smoke are believed to be more susceptible to the virus, and can become severely ill with it."

CRANDON - The Forest County Humane Society works around the clock to help animals find forever homes. But taking care of those animals during their stay doesn't just take a lot of time; it takes a lot of money, too.

The shelter got a helping hand, thanks to a $35,000 grant from the ASPCA. It's part of an initiative to help brick-and-mortar shelters improve their animals' quality of life.

Shelter director Angie Schaefer says that money paid for 20 new cat-condos, fencing for two new dog yards, and several other much-needed supplies.

"We're small, we're in a small community, so to raise that kind of money to get these items would have been quite a task. For them to step in and do that for us is amazing," said Schaefer.

Schaefer said the extra yards will allow dogs to spend more time outside and socialize with each other.
