Sweat and the City: Playhouse Village Association’s Free Fitness Series at New Downtown Park

Published on Mar 23, 2023

Get ready to break a sweat and have some fun with the Playhouse Village Association’s new fitness series at Playhouse Village Park starting Thursday. Led by local fitness studios, these free outdoor classes offer a range of exercises to suit all fitness levels and preferences.

The monthly series features classes on the second and fourth Thursday evenings beginning at 5:30 p.m. From high-energy workouts to meditative yoga, find the class that best suits your fitness goals and enjoy your neighborhood park.

The series kicks off Thursday with Archetype Slow Flow, a 60-minute yoga class led by studio owner Sara Blumekranz. This restorative yet playful practice is perfect for all levels of experience, so don’t forget to bring your own mat!

On April 13, Basecamp Fitness will be leading a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workout that will get your heart pumping and calories burning. Modified to your level, this 35-minute workout alternates between cardio and strength exercises for an all-in, full-body workout.

Later in the month, Space B.A.R. Wellness will guide you through a Holotropic-style breath work session that increases lung capacity and serves as a high-intensity workout for your lungs. Afterward, participants can take a cold plunge to build resiliency and regulate their nervous systems.

Finally, on May 11, Anytime Fitness will lead an all-ages strength and conditioning body weight bootcamp. Using your own body weight as resistance, this workout will improve your strength, flexibility, coordination, and endurance.
