New Year, New You

People doing Bodypump

Stay fit in the new year

Take advantage of the cooler weather with a morning walk or run. Studies have shown that exercising outside reduces stress and improves your mood.

Don’t get off track. Stay motivated to stick to your exercise routine by enlisting a workout buddy. If you did get off track of never got on, join a gym. Denton Parks and Rec offers a gym membership which includes access to fitness equipment.

We have group Exercises classes that run 6 days a weeklong and all year long, check out our website for an updated class schedule with all offerings. 

We have the GRIT challenge coming up in February that will be on our website and social media!
