Independent Health and YMCA Buffalo Niagara have teamed up for the seventh year to offer Fitness in the Parks – a series of FREE outdoor fitness classes designed to encourage physical activity and healthy lifestyles. Now, you never have to trade good weather for a workout again!

Even though Fitness in the Parks has ended, here’s a few highlights from our 2018 season:

  • Classes held from May 31 – August 25, one week earlier than previous years!
  • 8,245 total participants from Buffalo-Niagara and Jamestown.
  • FREE 60-minute classes led by YMCA certified instructors.
  • 23 parks across WNY, including five new locations!
  • Nearly 500 classes offered – including PiYo, HIIT and Zumba® Kids.
  • FREE parking at all locations.
  • No registration required; just show up!
  • Overall satisfaction remains high*, with 98% of survey respondents who would attend a future class and 99% of respondents who would recommend the program to a friend.
