We're Thrilled to Bring Back Fitness in the Park!
Austin Parks Foundation is proud to relaunch Fitness in the Park, presented by Cap Metro, with a brand new twist! This beloved series of approachable fitness classes in parks all over Austin is returning virtually beginning May 29th.
Hosted by Austin’s own DJ Mel - creator of the Living Room Dance Party - Fitness in the Park features six different fitness styles in some of Austin’s most beloved park spaces. Join us live on YouTube every other Saturday at 10am, and work up a sweat with DJ Mel, our incredible local fitness instructors and some of Austin’s best local bands.
The best part is - every class is completely FREE and you can re-watch anytime after the premier date.
