If you are anything like I am, you likely are busy with work, family and other stuff that get in the way of any kind of decent exercise schedule. Or, in other words, you have a bunch of excuses as to why you don’t exercise regularly.

Well, Fitness in the Park is a great way to get yourself out of your doldrums. These free fitness classes at Big Spring Park happen every Saturday in May and June and they don’t cost you anything!

“For someone who may be reluctant to walk into a gym, Fitness in the Park is a wonderful opportunity to see what appeals to you. There’s no commitment, no cost, no judgment – just a supportive instructor and a beautiful backdrop. It’s also great for regular exercisers, looking to switch up their routines.”

Kevin Ready, Wellness and Fitness Coordinator for Huntsville Parks & Recreation

Fitness in the Park is part of Mayor Tommy Battle’s Healthy Huntsville initiative, which focuses on the core concepts of nutrition and exercise to encourage our residents to embrace healthy lifestyles.

“We want to be the catalyst for change and to show our citizens that there is a better way. We already know that Huntsville is one of the smartest places to live in the country. If we can raise awareness about the serious health risk that obesity has on the quality and longevity of our lives and how easily those extra pounds can lead to diabetes, then we can also make Huntsville one of the fittest places.”

Mayor Tommy Battle
