So, how’s that New Year’s resolution to get fit working out for you? Are you one of those who hit the treadmill, weight room, or finally went to that spin class in early January, only to have your new regimen quickly fall by the wayside?
For two weeks this month, the Chicago Park District is offering a second chance -- or first if you haven’t already tried -- to jumpstart your fitness resolutions and get in shape.
From March 18-30, select parks will offer a variety of free fitness classes for all ages. Classes include sports conditioning and teen power training, cardio kickboxing, strength and training, mommy and me yoga, Pilates, kids fitness, and senior fitness and nutrition, according to the Park District.
One other highlight of the two weeks of free fitness classes, for those who really want to get serious about getting in shape, is fitness boot camp. Certified fitness instructors use interval, resistance and strength training in intense full-body workouts.
Once classes begin April 1, patrons will have the opportunity to pick selected classes taught by former military personnel, the release said. Patrons can also rally their friends to register together for small group personal training.
All classes are part of the Park Families Wellness Initiative, supported by The Coca-Cola Foundation. They are offered at 28 Chicago parks and a complete list and more information can be found at chicagoparkdistrict.com.
