At the intersection of smart and cool

Enjoy Fresh Air and Free Workouts at Outdoor Zumba Classes and Monday Morning Yoga

If you have a hard time dragging yourself to the gym in the morning, maybe it's time to take a different approach to exercise. The city of Arlington is currently offering free outdoor fitness classes that pair the beauty of mother nature with a solid sweat session. The allure of the great outdoors may serve as better motivation to get you active.

Kick off your next work-week with Monday morning yoga at Crystal City Water Park. Now through September 24th, yoga instructors from Mind Your Body Oasis will lead this all-levels flow from 6:30 to 7:45 a.m. each Monday morning. Prefer a more upbeat form of exercise? Then try outdoor Zumba over your lunch break every Wednesday. Starting at 12:30 p.m., gurus from local fitness clubs launch into a fast-paced dance cardio class that will get the blood pumping and the endorphins flowing at 2121 Crystal Drive. Both classes are free and open to the public.
