Metal building systems are highly versatile, providing environments for many sports/recreation uses, such as fitness clubs, indoor sports facilities, community recreation, equestrian centers and much more. Metal buildings provide a solution that is quick to construct, long-lasting and low-maintenance. That means lower long-term costs and reduced facility maintenance requirements over the entire life of the structure. Versatile clearspan structures have no interior columns which allows for the hassle-free reconfiguration of spaces. Such flexibility allows an owner to easily change out fitness or recreation equipment, add new programs and adapt the space to meet changing consumer expectations. A case in point is Evan’s Fitness Club in Evans, Georgia. When owner and general manager Mike Montarbo envisioned his quintessential fitness center, he imagined a contemporary, industrial appearance featuring exposed framing and wide-open interiors. The 50,000 square foot fitness club includes racquetball courts, a rock climbing wall, a golf simulator, an indoor running track, a two-story spin room, a cardio room with cinema, batting cages, and aerobics studios. Members have been impressed by its sleek and contemporary appearance. Evan’s Fitness Club’s management team plans to build another facility with similar aesthetics in the future. Metal buildings also serve the growing indoor skydiving market. Paraclete XP Skyventure in Raeford, North Carolina is a case in point. The owner’s design and construction team was able to meet the expedited schedule and unique facility requirements due customized solutions, flexibility, durability, and ease and speed of construction of the metal building system. The indoor skydiving facility has four 541 horsepower fans to provide a range of air flow for all skydiving training and recreation and currently houses the largest indoor vertical wind tunnel. Many community centers also rely on the versatility that metal buildings will provide. Bentonville Community Center in Arkansas is just one example. This 80,000 square foot facility serves the local community by providing an aquatic center with indoor pool, a full-fitness gym and many more amenities. Another community venue, the Myrtle Beach Sports Center in South Carolina, features 8 indoor basketball courts and 16 volleyball courts. This 100,000 square foot metal building hosts over 15 million visitors per year and was designed to host both sporting events and trade shows. Metal building systems are custom engineered to provide an exact fit for each specific developer’s program. After a building’s specifications are input into building design software, components and structural members are manufactured, then materials are delivered to the construction site as a complete package—assuring single-source responsibility and consistency in overall project delivery. Metal buildings allow space for energy efficient insulation which saves money and reduces interior noise. Flexible wall panel configurations accommodate future expansion as well as potential equipment and programming changes. The wide range of flexible design alternatives helps owners meet the branding objectives of their franchise facilities and multiple locations. Metal building systems are the most sustainable and efficiently designed solution for today’s low-rise commercial market. Due to benefits like design, durability, single source responsibility, fast delivery, sustainability and speed of construction, metal buildings are the preferred choice for a growing number of fitness and recreation locations nationwide.

Providing clients with a structured outdoor training program gives them the opportunity to break out of a regular indoor routine. Here are some benefits clients will experience: They Exercise on Uneven Terrain. Exercising on a natural surface outdoors requires more body control and activates more joints and muscles than working out on a flat surface indoors. They Engage the Mind. Attention shifts moment by moment as clients focus on dodging tree roots and rocks, smelling flowers, hearing birds, seeing the beauty of the changing scenery, and feeling the rain, sun or wind on their faces. They Boost Their Mood. Stress, anxiety and frustration from the daily grind simply evaporate when clients are immersed in the positive energy of nature and the awe of the earth’s natural wonders. They Challenge Themselves. This type of workout cranks up the metabolic demand. The physical demands of an unpredictable environment combined with the mental focus required to negotiate it helps clients burn more calories, work at higher intensities and take on greater challenges. All in all, they net bigger results. They Go Green. Not only is outdoor exercise friendly to the environment, but being in the “green” has a healing and rejuvenating effect on the body, mind and spirit. It’s in the Attitude! The philosophy behind the GALIUS MARTIAL ARTS program is to help clients develop a positive attitude about training outdoors and to create opportunities for them to successfully overcome various physical challenges. Providing clients with a safe opportunity to attempt and conquer difficult terrain at higher intensities improves their physical confidence. A strong sense of confidence enhances well-being and physical performance. This “I can do it” attitude means challenging tasks are there to be mastered, goals are set and committed to and setbacks inspire greater effort and focus. In general, individuals with less physical confidence tend to have low aspirations, make weak commitments, give up easily, focus on the things they cannot do and are easily discouraged by failure. Helping clients of all ages and abilities amplify their physical confidence can significantly affect their adherence to a training plan, their performance gains and ultimately how they tackle the challenges of day-to-day life. Physical confidence also affects the types of activities people choose to pursue. Success in this style of training motivates clients to attempt hiking, mountain biking, downhill skiing, golfing, cycling, triathlons and trail running with confidence! Working with others of similar ages or abilities in a group or small-group setting builds recognition of personal capability and inspires improvements in performance.

Buy the iREC Anthem on iTunes! http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/irec-anthem-single/id491670619 The University of Cincinnati Campus Recreation Center is more than just a place to work out on campus. It's a social avenue where students can escape the pressure of class and work to express themselves in the weight room, on the courts or in their favorite fitness class. It's also a place where students go to meet new people, bond with friends, find themselves and grow as individuals. Committed to capturing the true spirit of this campus hotspot, Coordinator of Fitness and Wellness Brandi Hester developed the concept of creating a cutting-edge music video that students could upload onto their smart phones, view on Youtube and even download on iTunes. The talent required for this special project included two of CRC's very own Fitness Floor Coordinators, Oni Nwamu and Carlton "CJ" Fowlkes. Both Oni and CJ are members of the hip-hop music group IGWE which means "King or Boss" in their native country Nigeria. When Brandi approached Oni with the idea of creating a song and video to promote Campus Recreation, he quickly took on the challenge with enthusiasm and creativity. Creating a vision, he assumed responsibility for nearly every aspect of the project from writing the lyrics, producing the beat, to directing the music video that was shot by student videographer Dan Drachman. Oni, CJ, and Oni's brother Udo Nwamu make up the trio IGWE which has been performing in the Cincinnati area for the past two years and recently performed with Wale.

In a culture where fitness is advertised as a means to a smaller body, it's hard not to have insecurities about the way we look. When fitness becomes more about the external and less about the internal, we begin to dread it and lose sight of what's truly important. This video is about learning to exercise because we love our bodies, and not because we hate them. We work out to feel alive, accomplished, powerful, able, badass, and confident! As a result, we truly enjoy moving our bodies. We should work out for the internal feeling we experience, and not for the external validation of others. In a culture that puts so much emphasis on the way you look, it's about slowly but persistently changing the narrative. Let's celebrate these amazing machines that are our bodies, and put an end to the self depreciation.

Introduction to Recreation Services for People With Disabilities continues to reflect a broad-based explanation of the role of practitioners in the interrelated fields of therapeutic recreation, inclusive recreation, and special recreation. This fourth edition represents a major revision, including the most current research and thinking about the interdisciplinary fields of recreation and disability studies. It is intended to be an introductory text for all students in parks and recreation/leisure studies departments. Every student, whether she or he intends to work in a provincial park or a state hospital, a community recreation center or a community mental health center, a public school or a cruise ship, needs a basic level of knowledge about people with disabilities. The central theme of this book is that people with disabilities are people who have the same needs and wants as anyone else and deserve the right to be at the center of their services. Each person with a disability is a person first, not a disability. Recreation services must be centered around the person who is being served. That is, whether treatment-oriented recreation therapy, goal-oriented special recreation, or activity-oriented inclusive recreation, it is the person and not the professional or even the activity that must be at the center of service delivery. It is our hope that you will begin to see people with disabilities as people as you learn about recreation and therapeutic recreation services. If you emerge from this book (or your class) with this person-centered knowledge, then you will have learned a lot about how to provide recreation services to people with disabilities. Whether or not you happen to be a person with a disability, our more earnest hope is that you will emerge with a commitment to ensure that people with disabilities are treated as people who are at the center of their programs and services. This means that you will become an advocate, maybe even a zealot, on behalf of people with disabilities. You will encourage friends and colleagues to use “people-first” and respectful language. You will refrain from jokes that perpetuate stereotypes. You will be part of a new breed of recreation and therapeutic recreation professionals who celebrate differences and strive to provide person-centered and responsive services.

The City of Atlanta today announced that Mayor Kasim Reed joined Dr. Bernice King, Department of Parks and Recreation Commissioner Amy Phuong, Atlanta Housing Authority President and CEO Catherine Buell, Atlanta City Councilmember Natalyn Archibong and the community to celebrate the opening of the new $23.5 million, 64,000-square-foot Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation and Aquatic Center. After the former Martin Luther King, Jr. Natatorium was closed in 2012 due to structural concerns, Mayor Reed made a promise to the Old Fourth Ward community to rebuild the natatorium with additional amenities before the end of his term. Today, Mayor Reed was able to keep that promise. “It was an honor to cut the ribbon on the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation and Aquatic Center today with Dr. Bernice King, surrounded by community members,” said Mayor Reed. “Atlanta is the birthplace of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and every building, street and monument bearing his name should be representative of Dr. King’s life and legacy. The recreation and aquatic center offers best-in-class design and amenities, and is accessible by MARTA and the Atlanta Streetcar. The new Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation and Aquatic Center is a place for everyone, and we hope that all of our residents look to this facility as a source of pride and connection.” The first of its kind, the facility features a 25-yard lap pool with the City’s first zero-entry indoor pool. The facility also includes a fitness and weight room, climbing wall, multi-use event area accommodating more than 200 people, rooftop event space, recreation classrooms, a senior center, a multi-purpose gymnasium, an indoor walking and jogging track, a lounge and workroom area, a computer lab, locker rooms and recreation staff offices. “The Department of Parks and Recreation is proud to open the Martin Luther King, Jr. Recreation and Aquatic Center’s doors, and celebrate what this new facility means for the City of Atlanta,” said Amy Phuong, Commissioner of the department. “This beautiful, state-of-the-art facility offers recreational programming to residents of all ages and abilities and serves as an essential communal gathering space, while embodying what all our recreational facilities should look like the future.” The Atlanta Housing Authority donated land for the new facility at 110 Hilliard Street, across from the King Memorial MARTA station and two blocks from the Atlanta Streetcar. The Renew Atlanta infrastructure program provided $17 million in funding, with the remaining funds provided by the Department of Parks and Recreation. Winter Johnson FS360, a joint venture of the Winter Johnson Group and FS360, created the design-build for the recreation and aquatic center, and architects from KAI Design & Build and Perkins + Will led the design process for the center. Under Mayor Reed’s leadership, the Department of Parks and Recreation has reopened all the City’s recreation centers and formed partnerships to invest more than $6 million in philanthropic dollars in Centers of Hope. More than 3,500 young people receive leadership development training, participate in modern technology courses, and experience true mentorship at Centers of Hope each year. In addition, the department acquired an additional 171 acres of land in the City of Atlanta which includes 15 new parks. As a result, 64 percent of Atlanta residents live within a half mile walk of a park.

The role of recreation in the National Park Service (NPS) has always been somewhat ambiguous. As historian Larry Dilsaver has pointed out, “The national parks were for inspiration and education of the people not, as many supposed, for recreation per se.” Indeed, the Organic Act did not use the term “recreation” in defining the purpose of the National Parks; rather, it stated that parks were to “conserve the scenery and the natural and historic objects” they contained while concurrently providing for their public “enjoyment.” However, as the NPS evolved in the 1920s recreation became an increasingly important, if unstated, part of the NPS mission. By the 1930s, the agency was seeking to solve what they termed the “park and recreation problem,” or the need to provide recreation facilities to an industrializing nation whose workers enjoyed unprecedented leisure time. As a result, the NPS proposed a new park typology—the recreation area—that was distinct from other parks in its lesser “caliber” of scenic value and greater focus on active pursuits. Though the recreation area was originally meant to function at the state or regional level, in developing the typology, the NPS soon found itself managing numerous recreation areas across the country throughout the 1940s and 50s. Eventually, following the passage of the Wilderness Act in 1964, the national recreation area (NRA) took its place as the counterpoint to the wilderness area, the two typologies creating a park use continuum with the traditional national park at its center. In 1963, an executive order officially defined the NRA as a federal land holding managed with a priority for recreation purposes and situated in close proximity to large population centers. Today there are 41 NRAs of disparate size and character, located in wilderness, rural, and urban areas, and managed by the NPS, the USFS, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). This paper traces the historical, political, and physical development of the national recreation area (NRA), from the 1930s, when it was prototyped as the problem-solving “Recreational Demonstration Area;” to the 1940s, when it became a means of NPS mission expansion in collaboration with the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) on large reservoir properties; to the 1950s when, during the Echo Park Dam controversy, it became a symbol of overdevelopment in national parks; and to the 1960s, when a four-year review of national recreational resources resulted in its redefinition as a federal class of lands outside the sole purview of the NPS. Explicating this complex history of the NRA, using landscapes such as Lake Mead, Glen Canyon, Chickasaw, and Gateway National Recreation Areas as examples, expands our understanding of the NPS in the post-World War II era beyond the usual “Mission 66” story. An awareness of the historical context for this typology is also important as these resources, congressionally designated after 1963, become eligible for inclusion on the National Register.

Dr. Matthew Cutulle discusses the research he's doing to find an organic-friendly herbicide at the Clemson University Coastal Research and Education Center in Charleston, SC. Transcript: The difficulty with controlling weeds and vegetables is that we don't have the same chemical control options that row crop growers have. We don't have as many herbicides. There's also a greater demand for organic produce in vegetables versus, say, just soybeans and corn. So we look at trying to optimize cultural practices for suppressing weeds using cover crops in the fall, so planting cereal ryes are very good cover crop for weed suppression. We're looking at some no-till practices where we'll crimp or roll the rye, and then and transplant into the residue, so those rye residues are gonna suppress weeds and help the crop compete with those weeds. The best thing about working here is being able to collaborate with the geneticists. There’s tons of germ plasm, tons of different varieties we can test for competition, abiotic stress, herbicide tolerance. I work with the sweet potato breeder a lot and try and select for germ plasm that is, sweet potato varieties that are more competitive versus weeds. Most of the conventional sweet potato varieties on the market have a creeping type growth habit, so we've selected for varieties that have a bunch type growth habit. It's more upright, it's more comprehensive in its canopy coverage and it also doesn't grow into the road middles more, which means you can cultivate into the season longer or use a hooded herbicide sprayer long in the season. I work with chemical companies in trying to register new compounds for use in South Carolina. We've gotten two new herbicide chemistries registered in South Carolina in the last year, giving South Carolina growers an Organic herbicide option. Getting more herbicide options, coming up with new varieties like the sweet potato varieties that are bunch type, so that’s a scenario where you could have reduced pesticide input.

It costs so much money and it could possibly cause so much of a financial hardship as to some people having to reconsider whether they''re going to be able to stay open. That may sound ridiculous, but I know that some hotels are closing their pools for certain seasons or for certain periods until they can get this thing figured out.") ABNEY HASN''T BOUGHT LIFTS YET BECAUSE - LIKE OTHER HOTEL OWNERS - HE''S HOPING FOR CHANGES TO THE LAW THAT WOULD ALLOW HOTELS TO BUY PORTABLE LIFTS. THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE ISSUED A MAY 21ST DEADLINE FOR POOL OWNERS TO COMPLY TO THE CHANGES. STORYLINE: Hotels, municipal recreation centers and other swimming pool operators are scrambling to comply with new government regulations requiring public pools to be accessible to people with disabilities. For most public pool owners, that means adding mechanical chair lifts that move people from wheelchairs to the water. Manufacturers say that equipment costs $3,500 or more. With an estimated 235,000 to 310,000 public pools nationwide, combined costs of pool upgrades could exceed $1 billion. The pool requirements were included in changes made to the 22-year-old Americans with Disabilities Act in 2010. While the initial deadline for compliance was March 16, the Justice Department agreed to give pool owners at least until May 21 because of confusion over the details and a backlog of orders with manufacturers. Writethru: Harry Spirides expects new government mandates will cost $12,000 for his hotel on Georgia''s largest public beach to upgrade its two swimming pools with mechanical chair lifts that allow guests in wheelchairs to move themselves in and out of the water. Swimmers with disabilities that hinder them from climbing in and out of pools insist the changes are overdue.

Bitter cold weather has a grip on the northwest metro. On Monday morning a New Hope weather watcher reported that it was 5 degrees below zero. For some people this means avoiding the outdoors and finding indoor options. "We're getting that arctic plunge again that we do get," said New Hope weather watcher Steve Reckers. "It just lasts sometimes for a number of days." Yes, the polar express has arrived and this frigid weather is gonna stick around for awhile. "Looks like we're going to have below zero the rest of this year into the new year," Reckers said. Christmas 2017 goes down in the record books as the coldest in a couple of decades in the northwest metro. "Yeah, going back to 1996," Reckers said. "That year was the coldest in my records dating back to the mid 50's. It was 19 below that morning." On a typical winter day area hockey rinks would be filled with skaters, but not on Monday. Because of the cold most were empty. That was also the case at Maple Grove's Central Park, where the normally popular skating loop was a frozen ghost town. "You need to be careful," Reckers said. "You don't want to have too much exposed skin and if it tends to get windier you've got more of a problem." As for snow, there isn't even enough of the white stuff to go sledding on area hills. "So far we haven't had much snowfall as you can see," Reckers said. "We have about two inches on the ground right now." However, inside the climate-controlled Maple Maze there was plenty of activity. "We've got four floors for the maze and a little toddler area," said Lisa Jost of the Maple Grove Community Center. "All ages can come for 12 and under so come on in." The North Pole-like weather is good for indoor play areas like the Maple Maze and can cause a spike in business. "It does pick up, yes, because it's just too cold to be outside," Jost said. "You don't want to be out in the bitter cold."

Two thousand Jerusalem kindergarten students gathered on Tuesday to participate in a Hakhel ceremony recreation, led by the Midrasha educational division of the Temple Institute. The commandment of Hakhel, which means 'to gather the people in assembly,' originates from the book of Deuteronomy, chapter 31, verses 10-12: "Then, Moshe commanded them, saying, "At the end of every seven years, at an appointed time, in the Festival of Sukkot, after the year of release, When all Israel comes to appear before HaShem, your G-d, in the place He will choose, you shall read this Torah before all Israel, in their ears. Assemble the people: the men, the women, and the children, and your stranger in your cities, in order that they hear, and in order that they learn and fear HaShem, your G-d, and they will observe to do all the words of this Torah." The current year is a shemittah (sabbatical) year in the land of Israel, which concludes on the eve of the upcoming Rosh HaShana. The biblically mandated Hakhel ceremony takes place after the conclusion of the first day of the Sukkot festival which follows Rosh HaShana. (The commandment of Shemitta is first mentioned in the book of Exodus, chapter 23, verses 10-12, and is expanded upon in the book of Leviticus, chapter 25.) Modern Israel has traditionally reenacted a contemporary public ceremony based on the biblical Hakhel, in which the President of the state of Israel, leading politicians and rabbis speak. Yesterday's event was the initiative of the Jerusalem Municipality's kindergarten supervisors and teachers, who turned to the Temple Institute's Midrasha educational division to produce the ceremony. Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat attended, and told the children, "For two thousand years our ancestors prayed to return to Jerusalem and to participate in its rebuilding. To our great joy we have the immense privilege to perform the commandment of Hakhel in rebuilt Jerusalem." The commandment of Hakhel is intended to be performed not only in Jerusalem, as mayor Barkat mentioned, but in the actual courtyards of the Holy Temple. Jerusalem's Chief Rabbis Shlomo Amar and Arye Stern were also in attendence at yesterday's ceremony. They read biblical verses to the children and together with the children recited the Shema Yisrael. (Deuteronomy 6:4) The event also included actors portraying kohanim, (the Temple priests), the Kohen Gadol, (High Priest), and the King of Israel, whose role it was to read the entire Torah to the assembled nation.

Providing clients with a structured outdoor training program gives them the opportunity to break out of a regular indoor routine. Here are some benefits clients will experience: They Exercise on Uneven Terrain. Exercising on a natural surface outdoors requires more body control and activates more joints and muscles than working out on a flat surface indoors. They Engage the Mind. Attention shifts moment by moment as clients focus on dodging tree roots and rocks, smelling flowers, hearing birds, seeing the beauty of the changing scenery, and feeling the rain, sun or wind on their faces. They Boost Their Mood. Stress, anxiety and frustration from the daily grind simply evaporate when clients are immersed in the positive energy of nature and the awe of the earth’s natural wonders. They Challenge Themselves. This type of workout cranks up the metabolic demand. The physical demands of an unpredictable environment combined with the mental focus required to negotiate it helps clients burn more calories, work at higher intensities and take on greater challenges. All in all, they net bigger results. They Go Green. Not only is outdoor exercise friendly to the environment, but being in the “green” has a healing and rejuvenating effect on the body, mind and spirit. It’s in the Attitude! The philosophy behind the GALIUS MARTIAL ARTS program is to help clients develop a positive attitude about training outdoors and to create opportunities for them to successfully overcome various physical challenges. Providing clients with a safe opportunity to attempt and conquer difficult terrain at higher intensities improves their physical confidence. A strong sense of confidence enhances well-being and physical performance. This “I can do it” attitude means challenging tasks are there to be mastered, goals are set and committed to and setbacks inspire greater effort and focus. In general, individuals with less physical confidence tend to have low aspirations, make weak commitments, give up easily, focus on the things they cannot do and are easily discouraged by failure. Helping clients of all ages and abilities amplify their physical confidence can significantly affect their adherence to a training plan, their performance gains and ultimately how they tackle the challenges of day-to-day life. Physical confidence also affects the types of activities people choose to pursue. Success in this style of training motivates clients to attempt hiking, mountain biking, downhill skiing, golfing, cycling, triathlons and trail running with confidence! Working with others of similar ages or abilities in a group or small-group setting builds recognition of personal capability and inspires improvements in performance.
