On any given day in Berks County, residents can be seen practicing a variety of fitness and exercise activities from a simple walk in the park, to any number of extreme sports that can be imagined. This is for good reason as fitness and wellness have become culturally connected to virtually every other aspect of our lives from medical and insurance costs, to productivity both in and out of the workplace. Gender participation is pretty much right down the middle and accepted as such, as physically active females of all ages have become part of the landscape, but it hasn’t always been that way.
