Join Us for Group Exercise in the Great Outdoors 

We are excited to offer outdoor group exercise classes to help you continue healthy activity! Due to state and county restrictions, class sizes will be limited. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Your health and safety is our primary concern and we will strictly follow all guidelines set by state and local officials.

  • Please follow social distancing requirements of six feet at all times.
  • Online pre-registration is required in order to participate. The REGISTER button is below.
