Cheekwood is opening its gates early in May and September this year for Fitness Fridays. Visitors can try a garden circuit blast or Tai Chi with instructors from the Green Hills YMCA. For moms (and dads) looking to include the little ones in their workouts, a stroller stride up and down the paved driveways or in the garden is a perfect way to get arms and legs in shape. For those more interested in working out their mind along with their body, grab your mat and join a yoga class in the Gardens, also led by certified instructors from the Green Hills YMCA
“Fitness Fridays is another wonderful way to enjoy Cheekwood,” says Anna Chappell, Cheekwood’s Public Programs Coordinator. “We’re opening our gates early so members and guests can exercise their body AND their spirit in and around our beautiful Gardens.”
