Edina, Minn., Oct. 31, 2018 – The Edina Parks & Recreation Department is moving its successful Fitness in the Parks program indoors for the colder months with classes under the dome at Braemar Field.
Each of the seven classes will be led by a local fitness business or organization. The program is part of the City’s effort to encourage a healthy community and promote health equity. Classes are open to adults of all fitness levels and abilities. No registration is required.
“Fitness on the Field will allow people the opportunity to try a fitness class without the trepidation they might feel at the gym,” said Edina Recreation Supervisor Nicole Gorman.
The first class, at 6:15 a.m. Friday, Nov. 16, will be led by Orangetheory Fitness of Edina.
Admission to Braemar Field, 7509 Ikola Way, is $5 and is paid at the door. Once inside, each class is free. People should bring a yoga mat to this first class. The dome tends to be about 50 to 55 degrees inside, but temperatures can fluctuate based on the weather so dress in layers.
Future classes will be held 6:15-7:15 a.m. Fridays about once a month on the following schedule:
Nov. 16: Orangetheory Fitness
Dec. 7: F45 Training
Jan. 4: Alchemy 365
Feb. 1: Physical Culture(v)
Feb. 22: Southdale YMCA
March 1: Py Method
April 5: Alchemy 365
