SOMC Fitness Instructor Presents at Regional Conference

Debbie Kielmar, fitness program lead of the SOMC LIFE Center, recently presented at the 2008 Midwest Fitfest conference, which took place Feb. 23 and 24 in Dayton.

More than 300 students and professionals from around the region attended the event, which was created to provide learning and leadership opportunities in the field of fitness. Presenters were chosen based on education, experience and certification and were given the opportunity to share programs they had designed and/or implemented within their fitness communities.

Kielmar presented Drums Alive and Functional Fusion, two routines that have been used as part of the group fitness schedule at the LIFE Center. Functional Fusion, created by Kielmar, is a total body workout that combines traditional toning with functional training exercises in a low repetition, constant progression. The program is currently featured at 4 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays at the LIFE Center in Portsmouth.

Kielmar is a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor. She is American Council on Exercise (ACE) certified and has been a member of the LIFE Center staff for more than 10 years.
