Columbus Parks to help with fitness solutions


It is time to start thinking about those New Year resolutions. On Jan. 9, the public is invited to join the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department (CRPD), along with Buckeye Health Plan, at the Schiller Park Community Center, 1069 Jaeger St., for the annual Fitness Resolution Solution from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This free event allows families and individuals to learn about the many ways that Columbus Recreation and Parks can help them stay healthy in the new year.

Fitness Resolution Solution will feature sample classes offered throughout the city’s 29 community centers including Zumba, cycling, yoga, boxing, boot camp, floor hockey and more. The ‘Healthy You” area will include health screenings along with nutritional treats, tips and cooking demonstrations. Participants will have the opportunity to experience the Schiller Community Center fitness room.  This space, and others like it, in 15 the CRPD facilities throughout Columbus, includes free weights, cardio equipment and weight machines.

All attendees that participate in three exercise classes and visit the “Healthy You” area will become eligible to win prizes. Prize drawings are held at noon and 2 p.m. Prizes include a Fitbit, an Amazon Fire tablet, gift cards and more.

“Health and wellness is a primary pillar of focus for our department. We want the community to come out to this event, have fun and experience the great affordable fitness programs we offer,” said Tony Collins, director of Columbus Recreation and Parks Department.
