Aerobics, Bike Riding, and Trail Yoga – Oh My!
The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership is encouraging Atlantans to get out and get active on the Atlanta BeltLine, and is making that easier through new health programming that includes free, fun fitness activities at parks and trails around the Atlanta BeltLine. From aerobics to FitWit and REI-led Trail Yoga and introductory bike riding classes for adults and children, there is something for everyone – regardless of age or fitness levels.
The free health programming started with the October 27th Atlanta BeltLine Soccer Street Cup at D.H. Stanton Park and continues throughout November at multiple locations along the Atlanta BeltLine. Most classes will take place on weekends, though there is also a Tuesday evening aerobics class at Historic Fourth Ward Park. Some classes allow unlimited participation, while others are space limited and require advance reservation. For details and a full calendar, visit http://BeltLine.org/FitSignUp.
The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership is working in cooperation with the City of Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation, Park Pride and other health-centric organizations to engage the community in healthy, active lifestyles, and the Coca-Cola Company provided funding to support the programs.
“In fulfilling the Atlanta BeltLine vision, it is our goal to address the health disparities around Atlanta by getting Atlantans of all ages, races, and fitness levels out and moving,” said Atlanta BeltLine Executive Director Valarie Wilson. “We are grateful for the support of the many partners who are helping make the vision of a healthier Atlanta possible.”
The new health programming builds on the popular Atlanta BeltLine Running Series, which features two 5Ks, an 8K, a 10K, monthly Run Clubs, and an Active Lifestyle Challenge to reward participants for their fitness accomplishments. The Atlanta BeltLine’s growing health and fitness offerings will continue to expand in 2014.
