Kevin Tackett in front of weight machine in gymBig Sandy Community and Technical College will offer Beginning Weight Training and Cross-Training courses this summer.

The classes will begin on June 1 and run through July 26.

Anyone starting out in weight training needs to know how to do it, said Instructor Kevin Tackett. If you do not approach weight training correctly, you can get injured.

The Beginning Weight Training class will meet each Monday from 4 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. on the Prestonsburg campus.

Its important to remember that its never too late to start, said Tackett. No matter what your goals are, strength training is an important part of an exercise program.

Cross-Training is a technique that involves using different types of exercise to provide variation, train for sports and/or reduce the risk of repetitive injury.

Cross-Training is really for everyone, said Tackett. Sometimes trying something new can get you out of a rut.
