2018 FREE Fitness Class Schedule on the Downtown Greenway
Classes this year will begin in May and will be held every Tuesday from 6-7pm through October (except for July because it is SO hot!) on the Downtown Greenway located at 475 Spring Garden Street. The Morehead Trail parking lot will be blocked off to cars during the class. Parking is available on the street or at 408 Blandwood Street and 500 Spring Garden Street.
We are excited to offer free classes for the 4th season in partnership with the Bryan YMCA. We have some regular instructors from past seasons and welcome our new instructors. Click here for the classes/instructors.
Look out for some new features this year-- a frequent attendee punch card and we will be participating in the DGI Summer Passport program-- the more you come the more chances you have of getting free stuff!
Unfortunately due to the threat of rain and thunderstorms, the Wheels on the Greenway for May 6th has been canceled. Safety is top priority and we do not want anyone to be on bikes if thunderstorms should pop up. We will not be rescheduling the event, but hope to plan a small gathering at Warnersville Rec Center this summer. Stay tuned for more info.
