Fitness Programming for Spring and Summer

by Kate Galer on April 25, 2016


We’re taking the bikes outside. Join Fuel Cycle Fitness and our Keiser-certified instructor, Jen Crompton, for the Ride in the Park series! Get a high intensity, sweat inducing, endorphin rushing indoor cycling class, while enjoying the great outdoors and beautiful summer scenery at Linwood Park! The music, air, and energy will get your blood flowing while the fun and carefully choreographed ride will get your cardio in check. Classes are $25 each and max out at 15 spots (so the space is limited!). Sign up for the class online at STARTS JUNE 5th. Classes will be on Sunday mornings through the summer at 8 AM and 9 AM. 50% of the class fee goes to the Friends of Linwood Park! So you are making a donation and getting healthy and having fun!

Gabi Cipollone will gently guide you on Tuesday evenings at 7PM
May 31st-July 19th
15 –30 minutes of strengthening and balance exercises aimed at all skill levels

One time a week gathering to explore/learn about fitness, work up to a goal, and be encouraged by the community around you who is also on a fitness journey. Although the in-person gathering is once a week, the trainer, Mandy Brindle, will send emails weekly with articles on injury prevention/healthy lifestyles, inspiration, along with a weekly plan. While the goal is to run a 5K by the end, please feel free to participate on any level you are able. We will have a more experienced group run as well, so join us even if this is not your first time running.
Create community while working towards a healthier lifestyle.
Day of Week: Weekly on Saturdays at 8 AM. Classes will run from June 4th through August 13th.
Time of each meeting: Roughly 1 – 1.5 hours. This will allow for warm up/cool down, run/walk and have time to do body weight exercises in the grass of the park. Participants can bring a towel or Yoga mat for the body weight exercise portion.
Time Frame: 10 weeks with the goal of running in The Bryn Mawr Running Club MidSummer Night Series 5k on August 11th
