Getting and staying in shape from home is easier now because of the city of Phoenix’s FitPHX, which provides free exercise classes online.
The city’s healthy community measure is delivering its summer activities via Zoom due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The programs started last month and include the popular Fitness Bootcamp, as well as the Fall Into Fitness series. A new monthly Morning Yoga series also is available.
Fitness Bootcamp, delivered in partnership with the Valley of the Sun YMCA, takes place from 6 to 7 p.m. every Monday through Aug. 31. YMCA instructors lead the circuit-style class that blends cardio, strength and speed for a workout to boost heart rates. Fall Into Fitness, presented in collaboration with Energized by Exercise, is a family-oriented program for all experience levels and ages. It is held from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Sept. 1. Professional instructors head the calorie-burning classes including Turbo Kick LIVE, Zumba, P90X LIVE and HIGH Fitness. Classes are set to popular music and aim to prompt movement.
The city is teaming up with Sutra Studios to provide Morning Yoga from 9 to 10 a.m. every third Saturday of the month through Dec. 19. Kick off your day, stretch and get your energy flowing in these classes.
Registration is required for the classes. To learn more, visit Phoenix.gov/Parks.
