PBS Wisconsin’s exercise series Quick Fit With Cassy provides short, educational fitness routines to help participants improve their balance, strength and flexibility. Hosted by Cassy Vieth, a certified fitness trainer from Wisconsin, this digital series will help viewers understand how to correctly engage all areas of the body and stay motivated to maintain their commitment to physical wellness.
All episodes of Quick Fit With Cassy are available to watch online at pbswisconsin.org/quickfit and on the free PBS app on Roku, Smart TVs and other streaming devices.
Quick Fit With Cassy gives viewers free access to expert instruction at their convenience and in the comfort of their own homes. People often make New Year’s resolutions to improve their personal fitness, and Vieth focuses on the longevity of the commitment opposed to the desire to reach goals quickly. Quick Fit is not a quick fix. Her philosophy that “life is movement” reinforces the mindset that physical wellness must be intentional and ongoing.
As the name suggests, Quick Fit routines are short, often between 10 and 15 minutes, to encourage participants to move every day even if the exercise is brief. The series helps viewers build a lasting physical foundation for living well and doing the things they love, whether it is as peaceful as gardening or as athletic as running marathons. Anyone at any fitness level can benefit from these exercises that improve balance and flexibility.
Vieth often ends her routines by encouraging people to “make plans to take tomorrow’s class right now.” Quick Fit champions education and consistency over intensity.
Funding for Quick Fit With Cassy is provided by Greg and Carol Griffin, the Focus Fund for Wisconsin Programs (supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities) and the Friends of PBS Wisconsin.
