Free Fitness Week Starts at Parks

A Chicago Park District Free Fitness Week starts on Monday,
December 30--an occasional event designed to spark interest in the district's 69 fitness centers across the city.

On the Southwest Side, Park District fitness centers are located at Scottsdale Park, 4637 W. 83rd Street; Valley Forge Park, 7001 W. 59th Street; West Lawn Park, 4233 W. 65th Street; Davis Square Park, 4430 S. Marshfield; Gage Park, 2411 W. 55th Street; and Hayes Park, 2936 W. 85th Street; 

New fees for all of the centers’ memberships are designed to make access to fitness facilities more affordable and achieving wellness goals reachable.

Free Fitness Week participants may visit any Park District fitness centers, try out the equipment and pay $5 for a single-day pass.

Upgrading to a Chicago Park District fitness center membership will also be more affordable, officials said in a statement. Fitness centers offer several membership options that cater to diverse needs and exercise and training preferences.

Reduced fees for single site, monthly, three month, and annual passes are also be available at all fitness centers. Patrons may set up an account before registering either online or in person. There are gold card membership options that allow people to explore and workout at any of the Chicago Park District’s fitness centers citywide.

The cost of monthly passes has been reduced in many parks and range from $10 to $22. Three-month passes vary by park from $30 to $60 and annual passes from $100 to $225. Accessibility is key to making fitness accessible to as many patrons as possible. There are more than 40 fitness centers that have accessible equipment for people with disabilities. Hours of operation can vary by location.

Park District fitness centers often have new and improved equipment that includes computerized treadmills, cross trainers, upright bikes, recumbent bikes, free weights and benches, cable cross-overs, multi-station weight machines and core focused equipment.

From yoga to bootcamp, there are more than 750 fitness classes in the district's spring session, which kicks off in early January. Online and in-person registration is open. Click the image below for details!
