We're still outside in stunning Ross Park for Fit and Healthy With Becky!  If you got it, flaunt it and Ross Park in Norton Shores has all of it and then some.  From the lush grassy areas to the lakeside beach and the well maintained facilities for sports and fitness, Ross Park is a spot of beauty and nature for everyone to enjoy.

It's an "easy" workout today.  Well, if you define "easy" by not needing anything more than what the Good Lord gave ya.  No weights, no gadgets just the desire to make sure that you're doing the best ya can with what ya got and Becky is here to show you how it's done.  

Are we lucky to have such a great spot like Ross Park or what?  We filmed a few when we met up at Ross Park in Norton Shores a couple weeks back as things were easing up a little and the return to "normal" was just getting underway.  A little fresh air and a gorgeous setting just off Mona Lake was perfect to keep bringing you some of the best work out's around and keep you moving until your favorite spot re-opens!  We had a few weeks of reruns, and it's pretty good to be 147 episodes deep in this so if that ever has to happen again, we could always go back and find another on you have not done in a while, but we like to keep them new and fresh above all.

It's the weekly update from Public Health - Muskegon County. Kathy Moore is off but Mike Eslick joins today to talk about another free testing event happening Friday and Saturday for anyone who'd like to be tested. No appointment, cost or symptoms are needed.

Welcome to another round!!  It's a new start, a familiar approach however that will keep you moving and active with the most basic of requirements!  We're working our way back to The Gym in North Muskegon just like anyone else during the times.  It's been difficult on all of us to maintain "normal" but Becky keeps on keeping on and outside at a safe social distance.  Won't be long, we'll be back to what we know, we promise!

For now, it's the Tabata format.  8 cycles through with 20 second bursts of work followed by 10 second respites!  it's designed to keep you motivated, keep your body guessing and build strength and cardio!  We're in the beautiful surroundings of Ross Park as well.  Norton Shores gets it's chance to shine and show off one of the most picturesque and multi-purpose parks in all of the county!

As always, please make sure you are ready for this or any other work out, check with a doctor first.  Drink plenty of water, warm up, stretch out and let 'er rip!  It's episode 146 of Fit and Healthy With Becky on The Muskegon Channel.

Kathy Moore Director of Public Health - Muskegon County is in for her weekly update on COVID-19 in Muskegon County. The results are coming in from the large scale community test in The City of Muskegon Heights and thankfully, "stay home, stay safe" resulted in a lot of negative results. Find out how many. Speaking of "stay home, stay safe" that order is officially lifted Monday and Kathy's advice is to proceed with caution. We're not flipping a switch on this, it's more of turning a dial to get back to "normal". Take a listen to today's update.


Our thanks to Kathy Moore, the advice stands.  Proceed with caution.  If you'd like to know more about Public Health Muskegon County, you can click on the image below to visit their website.

Whew!  We've been at this whole COVID thing for a while and honestly, it's taking it's toll on everyone!  From those infected by this dreaded new virus to those who have been displaced from the measures that have been taken to "Stop the Spread" and "Flatten the Curve", you'd be hard pressed to find anyone on Planet Earth who's not had some kind of off putting moment from COVID-19.  Even as things are starting to open up a little in Michigan and around the United States, we've got a long and uncertain road ahead of us until a vaccine is found, if one ever is.  The early days, when we all heard "The New Normal"?  Seems like ancient history, but the reality of that is that so much is still unknown, we've got to air to the side of caution and one thing that will be paramount, testing. 

Up and at 'em!! Or.. It's your lunch break!  Let's go!  Or.. Let's cap off your day with a great workout!  See what's awesome about Fit and Healthy With Becky on The Muskegon Channel?  EVERYTHING!  No matter what time of day, no matter when it works best, no matter how many times a day you'd like to do it...your workout is right here waiting for you on the Muskegon Channel!

Public Health - Muskegon County Director Kathy Moore joins Andy O'Riley for her weekly update for Muskegon on COVID-19. It's another fairly good news week. An update on the official numbers in the county. A huge outbreak isn't expected, however we might see numbers go up due to the increase of testing. Good things are happening, people are getting antsy..we all know it, there's light at the end of the tunnel, but it won't be Pre-COVID for a while. Thoughts and resources on best practices for the reopening of things. How to prepare and maintain precautions. Some talk about bars, restaurants and their reopening practices, they are already ahead, patrons might have to rethink some stuff as they frequent. The message in Muskegon is to stay safe and breathe a small sigh of relief.


We're doing our very best to keep you updated.  If you'd like to follow updates directly from the Muskegon County Public Health Office, you can click on the link below to connect directly to their website.  You can also find the information you need on the Muskegon Channel Radio App.  It's a free download for either Iphone or Andriod devices.

You're going to need a dumbbell that suits your fitness level.  Becky, she's going big.  She's got a 25 pounder and she's pushing it hard in todays workout.  Strength, cardio and some endurance is going on here.  Along with a few of those bursts...comes a "shock" to the muscle groups and it kinda amplifies the effectiveness.  She's a Certified Personal Trainer, she knows what she's doing!

Like any of Becky's workout's, make sure you warm up, stretch out and drink plenty of water.  If you are just getting into a workout routine, make sure you check with your doctor.  Chances are you can check with them right through the phone or computer now a days!

In 2019, Andy O was asked to be the "Official Spokesman" for the Alzheimer's Association's Annual Walk in Muskegon.  It was a bit of an overwhelming task to be honest.  Emcee from a stage and ad lib.  Piece of cake.  But to be considered an "Official Spokesman" seemed to elevate things significantly and might lead to situations that were rather uncomfortable due to the limited amount of personal exposure to the horrible disease.  What if people had questions that couldn't be answered?  What if ya had to go speak to a group of "VIP's" who'd look at you thinking "Why'd they pick you?"  All kinds of reasons float through the head.  In the end though, it's about lending a hand, and getting out of your comfort zone a little, right?  So whaddya do?  Find someone who really knows what they are talking about and let them have the spotlight.

Kathy Moore, Director of Public Health - Muskegon County brings her weekly update on COVID-19 in Muskegon. We go over the confirmed cases, and the number of losses. We talk about yesterday's article and what it means. It's a good thing, but it's not time to just forget what has to be done for the time. We were more than adequately prepared and that was good. We explain the difference between "State of Emergency" and the "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order. There's a big difference.
