The Park District of Oak Park is gearing up for a new fitness season and is ready to help you make your fitness goals a reality.
Fitness Program Supervisor Laura Greeley says the Park District is listening to community feedback in structuring their new fitness programs. "Our goal is to help create a healthier Oak Park. We're focused on providing affordable, convenient and innovative programming for adults."
With an eye towards making Park District fitness programming more accessible to everyone, on September 1, the price of a monthly unlimited pass for adult classes will drop from $60 to $45.
Greeley says that with that $45 comes a lot of options. "We offer over forty fitness classes a week in a variety of locations in Oak Park. From our studios at Ridgeland Common, to our yoga hub at Dole Center, to the Gymnastics Center and the Stevenson Center, we aim to make it easy to get here."
Classes run the gamut from Yoga, Barre, Cycling, HIIT Fusion, Pilates, WERQ® Dance fitness, KettleWorx, BodyPump™ and more. There is a fitness class for everyone, regardless of fitness level or goal.
The Park District works hard to provide the best in fitness class instruction. Greeley points out, "Our instructors are top-notch. All of them are certified, and more than that, they are all really passionate about what they do to motivate and inspire each person to be the best version of themselves."
The start of fall and a new school year signals a great time to make a personal reset towards fitness. During summer, with vacation plans and kids home from school, workouts can be put on the back burner. Greeley notes that the scheduling of fitness programs is aimed to help adults find the time to fit classes into their schedules.
"We have a schedule that's flexible for everyone. We have early morning classes at Ridgeland Common, so you can make it to the train on time. We have morning classes after pre-school drop off hour for busy parents, and for those who prefer a later workout, we have evening classes too."
Great pricing and quality classes are a big draw, and the ease of scheduling is another plus to Park District fitness. With MindBody software, accessible through the Park District website, users can make payments online, pick and choose classes that fit their schedule and see course descriptions and instructor bios online.
Greeley says, "It's a one-stop shop. In addition, the monthly passes are all-inclusive. There are no extra fees, so what you see is what you get in terms of pricing."
