April wellness – new programs


Flock 2 Fun

This free 10-week program promotes childlike wonderment and cardiovascular health by impersonating local geese. Together, we’ll waddle briskly across paths and practice birdcalls with our instructor, Mother Goose. All are welcome regardless of age, speed, experience or ability to fly. Wear webbed shoes. For more info contact Jeanne at jecker@fnal.gov or x2548.
Thursdays: April 6–June 8
Outside WH East Side: 4:45-5:30 p.m.



Honest Abs
This group will meet up to eat potato chips and ice cream as we are honest about our abs (and not being able to see them).

Thursdays: April 13–June 15
Wilson Hall cafeteria: noon-12:30 p.m.
Fee: $50 (Chips and ice cream included)


Arm Wrestling
Finally, a chance to go mano-a-mano with your fellow Fermilab friends. Build arm, wrist and core strength with a fun yet competitive vibe. This program was piloted at three other national labs and received two thumbs up from participants. We’re excited to try it at Fermilab. Top contenders here will advance to a DOE-wide tournament held this July.

Tues & Thurs: April 4–June 29
No class 5/23
Fitness Center Exercise Room: 5-6 p.m.
Fee: $100 (Register by April 3; includes special 50th anniversary wrist sweat band)


Paintwall League
Who wants to play paintball when you can play paintwall? Painting is good exercise, and some of the buildings need a fresh coat of paint to spiffy up for all the visitors at Fermilab’s Open House on Sept. 23. Do something nice for the lab and get fit while you’re at it!

Mondays: April 10–July 31, weather permitting
Rotating location: 11:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Fee: $3.50 (BYO coveralls)



Neutrino Bouquet
The Accelerator Division is preparing to send neutrino bouquets out for Mother’s Day on Sunday, May 14, but they need your order now to start adjusting the beam direction. Place your order by April 25. Normal price neutrino bouquets are $44.99, but will be available to employees for $29.99 (shipping and handling included). Send your mom a gift she’ll never forget.*
