Overland Park, Kan. - In preparation for opening a new indoor recreation facility later this year, Blue Valley Recreation Commission hired Adam Lockard as the facility's second full-time employee. Lockard is poised to serve as the assistant facility supervisor and fitness coordinator. The new facility, being built at the Blue Valley School District's Hilltop Campus, will house an indoor walk/run track, sports courts, dance studios, and fitness programs.

Lockard graduated from the University of Central Missouri with a bachelor's in general recreation and a master's in physical education/exercise science and sport science. He spent the last three years in Missouri overseeing operations for Gladstone's community center.

"Adam's community-first attitude is a perfect fit for Blue Valley Recreation," said Jason Goin, who was hired in March as the supervisor for the new facility. "His expertise in the health and wellness field is key to providing a healthy and engaging experience."

Lockard's passion is fitness. A self-described fitness enthusiast, his experience in the area will move Blue Valley Rec to new level of fitness programming. He will actively program yoga, cardio equipment, and strength areas year-round.

"I love revamping fitness trends to help others reach their goals," commented Lockard. "A healthy attitude improves overall life experiences and I am excited about the opportunities the new facility will provide.

Lockard holds memberships in National Intramural-Recreation Sports Association (NIRSA), Missouri Parks and Recreation Association (MRPA), and Kansas Recreation and Park Association (KRPA).
