Fall fitness week offers free trials

It’s a great time to try out a new recreation activity

Have you ever wanted to try a spin class, get tangled up in yoga or bench press your own weight?

Is the fear of committing to a fixed class schedule or a long-term pass keeping you from trying something new?

Well, West Shore Parks and Recreation has the solution to those problems. They are offering residents a chance to try a new activity – or several – with a fall fitness week.

Between Sept. 8 and 14, a total of 46 free classes will be offered, led by some of the best instructors on the West Shore. With classes ranging from fitness bootcamps to cycling to yoga, there’s bound to be something you’ve always wanted to try.

After you’ve attended a free class, don’t forget to enter the draw for a three-month pass or a prize package. Space is limited so register ahead to avoid disappointment.

For more information, flip to page 47 of fall/winter Activity Guide. Registration is now open for all West Shore Parks and Recreation programs, with sports and leisure activities available for all ages. Sign up or find more details online at
