• Avoid touching your face

[03/17/20]   In order to comply with the Governor's order, Impact Sports and Fitness will not allow more than 50 inside of the gym at once. Thank you for your cooperation. Below is the order issued by the governor's office:

Governor Kelly announced Executive Order #20-04 and Executive Order #20-05 to keep Kansans safe and healthy, ensuring all families are protected during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In light of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidance released on Sunday, March 15, 2020, Governor Kelly’s latest Executive Order follows the CDC’s recommendation to limit group gatherings to no more than 50 individuals in a single area.

“This is a difficult but essential step to further encourage social distancing and stem the spread of COVID-19,” Kelly said. “We must flatten the curve and hinder the spread of this disease. I urge all businesses, restaurants, bars, entertainment and recreational facilities to exercise responsible judgment and follow these guidelines.”

Kelly remains in close consultation with the Kansas Chamber of Commerce, the Kansas Restaurant and Hospitality Association, the National Federation of Independent Business Owners and the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism as events unfold.

“While public health and safety must always come first, COVID-19 will undoubtedly have a devastating economic impact on Kansas small business owners and workers,” Kelly said. “I am actively engaged with the business community to identify how the state can best support Kansas businesses and their employees as we navigate this unprecedented challenge together.”

In addition, Governor Kelly asked the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC) to suspend utility disconnects until April 15. This directive covers all electrical, natural gas, water and telecommunications utilities under the KCC’s jurisdiction. Kelly announced a second Executive Order, (E.O. #20-05) regarding utility disconnects advising the same directive for the utility companies not under the jurisdiction of the KCC.

“It’s imperative we provide relief to our most vulnerable Kansans during these unprecedented times,” Kelly said.

Kelly emphasized that certain populations are more vulnerable to COVID-19 than others, and it is imperative that all Kansans play a part in keeping communities safe.

“While all of these measures represent a dramatic change from what we’re accustomed to, I know Kansans will rise to the challenge,” Kelly said.

IMPACT’S WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE WINNERS

The challenge has been met, and the winnings have been awarded to the top three winners of the Impact Sports & Fitness 2020 Weight Loss Challenge. Winners were awarded based upon the percentage of body weight lost during the six-week program. The top winners received $500, $250, and $100 respectively for first, second, and third place.

1st place winner: Karl Franz lost 14.45% body weight, 2nd place: Curtis Barbee lost 13% body weight, and 3rd place: Lynn Peterson lost 12.19% body weight.

"I kept track of my calorie intake, and it was an eye opener to see," Franz said. “Meeting new people and getting a good workout was very motivational.”

Barbee and Peterson also shared their thoughts about the challenge. “This is a great way to get back into shape, and I enjoyed the group training,” Barbee said.

“Anita is a great trainer,” Peterson said. “She made the workouts fun and challenging. I also liked the challenge and motivation that helped me make lifestyle changes.”

This year’s challenge consisted of over 50 participants assigned to teams. Each team met with a trainer every week and participants also worked out on their own.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE - NO KNOWN CASES IN DICKINSON COUNTY AT THIS TIME - PRECAUTIONS ARE IN PLACE

Memorial Health System (MHS), in Abilene, is taking precautions to protect patients, staff, and the community. While there are currently no known cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Dickinson County, MHS is working closely with state and local entities to ensure preparedness.

Aquatic Therapy is now available at Memorial Health System Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine!

Memorial Health System’s Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine department is excited about the addition of a new HydroWorx 350 aquatic therapy pool. This HydroWorx pool utilizes warm water therapy as a medium to enhance rehabilitation and performance through water’s buoyancy, resistance and hydrostatic pressure.

“This advanced hydrotherapy system provides the ultimate rehabilitation advantage,” MHS Physical Therapist, Jeff Sanborn said. “We began treating patients in the HydroWorx pool on Monday (10-14-19). All of our patients, who have been in the pool, have said they think it is a great addition.”

The MHS Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine staff are planning to host an open house for the public in the near future. “We want the community to stop in and see our new pool,” Sanborn said. “As soon as the finishing touches are complete, we will set the date.”

HydroWorx promotes five ways that aquatic therapy impacts rehabilitation.

1. An exercise solution for all levels of weight bearing. Allowing a non or partial weight bearing patient or athlete a way to move and safely begin rehabilitation can do amazing things for their body and their spirit.

The buoyancy of the water eliminates up to 90% of an individual’s body weight, allowing patients or athletes with restrictions to safely begin therapeutic exercises shortly after injury without the fear of falling or reinjury.

2. Begin rehab sooner in the water than on land to reduce inflammation and accelerate rehab. The ability to unload an individual’s weight in the water allows you to begin rehab exercises sooner than land based exercises; thus speeding up recovery and minimizing the loss of range of motion on the injured joint. The hydrostatic pressure of water, also naturally decreases inflammation to increase circulation.

3. Pain is greatly reduced when exercising in warm water. When an individual is bearing less body weight, the stress on their legs and joints is greatly diminished. In addition, the warm water acts as an aid for sore, swollen or injured joints and muscles resulting in less pain for the individual, increased range of motion and improved compliance from your patient or athlete.

4. Lean muscle mass and overall leg strength is greatly improved with underwater treadmill exercise. When comparing exercising on land to aquatic-based exercise, a research study conducted at Texas A&M University shows that exercising on an underwater treadmill yields greater results in building lean muscle mass. The added resistance from the water and resistance therapy jets makes underwater treadmill exercise more challenging for your leg muscles.

5. Unbelievable rejuvenation and recovery capabilities. Research shows that individuals who exercise on an underwater treadmill show significantly less muscle soreness than those who exercised only on a land treadmill. An additional research study from the University of Wisconsin showed improved flexibility and sleep patterns for those who exercised on underwater treadmills.
