The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership (ABP) has announced the resumption of its Free Fitness Class Series for 2017. Free fitness classes are conducted throughout the week at parks and other locations along the Atlanta BeltLine.
ABP has offered free fitness classes since 2013 to connect people to the Atlanta BeltLine and encourage a healthy, active lifestyle. Free class offerings include traditional exercise disciplines like yoga, aerobics, running/walking/hiking, road and mountain cycling, boot camp-style workouts, and skateboarding. Unique fitness classes like Hiking with Dogs, Caribbean-style workouts, and Sunset and Sunrise Hikes are also available. All classes are led by certified fitness instructors.
“Getting people out and active on the Atlanta BeltLine is a key part of our efforts to engage the public and promote positive health outcomes,” said Rob Brawner, ABP’s Executive Director. “Data shows that those who live in communities along completed sections of the Atlanta BeltLine are among the city’s healthiest residents. We believe providing access to free, nearby fitness classes is a contributing factor.”
More information on the Partnership’s free fitness classes is available at beltline.org/fitsignup, and all classes are listed on the Atlanta BeltLine event calendar at beltline.org/events. Some classes require pre-registration.
The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership Free Fitness Class Series is made possible through the generous support of Mountain High Outfitters, WellStar Atlanta Medical Center, Whole Foods, and Healthways. Program partners include the Georgia State University College of Education and Human Development, Park Pride, the City of Atlanta Department of Parks and Recreation, and REI.
The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership is interested in talking with individuals or organizations who would like to lead future free fitness class. Interested parties are invited to complete this online application.
