Recreation Center

Our Mission

Our mission is to get the community healthy by choosing to take part in activities such as walking, running, weightlifting, and circuit training. 

The Recreation Center is now OPEN!

Programming at the Wellness Center has moved inside the Meskwaki Recreation and Community Center: 

  • Fitness assessments
  • Wellness programming (SettFit)
  • Personal training
  • Fitness and weight training classes/group fitness
  • Coordination and participation in walk/runs and other community events that promote physical activity
  • A facility with equipment for various forms of exercise
  • Recreational sports leagues and opportunities
  • Other opportunities/groups for physical activity/fitness

Tour the Rec Center

You don’t have to be fit and healthy to start, but you have to start to be fit and healthy! Visit the Wellness Center and take a tour to learn about the fitness equipment available to you, get tips on how to use the equipment, sign up for personal training or group classes, work out, and/or find out more about our SettFit Program.
