Ten-hut! Family Boot Camp on tap for Saturdays at Big Spring Park East

HUNTSVILLE — For the fitness conscious or those who want to be: Attention!

A series of workouts presented by Burn Boot Camp steps off Saturday at Big Spring Park East. The free program is family oriented.

This summer’s edition of Fitness in the Park features Family Boot Camp every Saturday in May and June as part of Mayor Tommy Battle’s Healthy Huntsville initiative. The sessions are 9-10 a.m. and will highlight a different workout and instructor each week.

Attendees this Saturday are encouraged to stay afterward for the 15th annual Mayor’s Bike Ride & Block Party, also in Big Spring Park and also free, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. This event includes a four-mile bike ride and for non-cyclists the block party features yard games, inflatable obstacle course, scavenger hunts, music, prizes and more.

Food trucks will have concessions available for purchase.

Battle said it’s a great way to renew fitness goals while making friends.

“Fitness in the Park’s popularity keeps growing because of the quality workouts and the camaraderie of participants,” he said. “It’s a great reason to get out of the house and get moving and it only requires an hour of your time.”

Healthy Huntsville Coordinator Kevin Ready said Fitness in the Park offers a diverse range of styles and can be tailored to suit individual comfort levels. He said the workouts are designed to be engaging and fun and not a mundane task.

“We’re trying to emphasize that exercise can be enjoyable, which is what makes it so special,” Ready said. “It’s great for someone who wants to get into an exercise routine and explore what works best for them. Plus, we have some of the area’s best instructors and it’s hard to beat the backdrop of beautiful Big Spring Park.”

All sessions are intended for participants ages 16 and older. Minors must be accompanied by an adult. In the case of inclement weather, classes will move to the portico behind Huntsville Utilities.
