FitPHX, the city’s healthy community initiative, is now offering its summer 2020 activities virtually to help residents stay healthy and active during the COVID-19 pandemic. Eight weeks of programming began last month and includes the popular Fitness Bootcamp and Fall Into Fitness series that locals can join in anytime. The schedule also features a new monthly Morning Yoga series. All three programs are presented thanks to the sponsorship of AARP Phoenix and other supporting partners.
These programs are free, but registration is required. Registered participants will receive a unique code to virtually join the live stream via Zoom. Participants will also need to download the free Zoom app through the iTunes or Android store, or search for and download it through their Internet service provider.
Fitness Bootcamp, presented in partnership with Valley of the Sun YMCA, will be held each Monday until August 31 from 6 to 7 p.m. YMCA instructors lead this circuit-style class that combines cardio, strength and speed for a heart-pumping workout that will bring participants’ fitness to the next level. This is designed as a fun and supportive 60-minute session.
Fall Into Fitness
Fall Into Fitness, presented in partnership with Energized by Exercise, is a family-oriented fitness program for all ages and experience levels. It will be held each Tuesday until September 1 from 6 to 7 p.m. Professional instructors will lead calorie-burning classes such as Turbo Kick LIVE, Zumba, P90X LIVE, PiYo, HIGH Fitness and Core de Force. The workouts are fun, interactive and designed to get people moving, and are set to popular music.
Morning Yoga, presented in partnership with Sutra Studios, is designed for all ages and experience levels. It will be held every third Saturday of the month until December 19 from 9 to 10 a.m. Jump start your day, wake up your body and get your energy flowing.
