City of Reno, Local Gyms Offer Free Fitness Classes

The City of Reno is offering free fitness classes to help people get in shape this summer. “Shape up Reno” is a partnership with local gyms and instructors which started three years ago. Tuesday the program held a fitness boot camp at Wingfield Park, which is a perfect place for people who work downtown. “They’re sitting at their desk all day, they’re wanting to get active but maybe they can’t find the time, or they have to run their kids somewhere, so this is a great way to eliminate that excuse,” explained Channell Holmgren, who teaches a free one-hour exercise class on Tuesdays. “I thought it was a great way to give back to the community, so this is my third year doing that,” she added.Andy Bass, the Recreation Manager for the City of Reno, says it’s a community effort. “It’s not just the City of Reno it’s really these local businesses that are donating their instructors and their space to make it happen,” he said.The classes are meant for all ages, and all fitness levels. Rossy Cardenas was invited by a friend last week and showed up again for the boot camp class. “It’s hard but it’s also easy. It depends on how hard you want to go,” she said. “Anybody, even first-timers, they’re going to feel right at home,” she said.
Classes vary from Pilates to boot camp to yoga, at different locations during the summer. “The whole focus is to try to remove the barriers to fitness. So the first barrier is money, the second is trying to find a place that they feel comfortable,” said Bass.
Those who show up say they also meet new friends. “It’s really easy to get locked in a building during the day and so this is a nice way to have a relationship and have some fun,” said Holmgren.
