Staying Fit While Having Fun This Summer

Jun 13, 2018

Warmer weather is here and that means fresh fruit, day trips to the beach and evening cookouts. Even though summer is seen as a relaxing period where you can take some time off, you should still try and maintain healthy habits. Don’t let the thought of paying for a gym membership and crowded cardio machines keeping you from staying healthy and fit this summer.  Finding different opportunities within your community is a great way to make working out both more fun and, in some cases, easier on your wallet. 

Community Events

Whether you live in Greenville or in the surrounding areas there are multiple opportunities for you to get out and get active. Grab some friends or family members and try something new.

Yoga

Greenville Museum of Art

On the second Sunday of every month, you can take a yoga class inside the Gallery of the Greenville Museum of Art. The class is an hour long and starts at 2:00 pm. All you need to bring is your own yoga mat and $10.

Pitt Street Brewing Company

If you are looking for a yoga experience with a little treat at the end, keep up to date with Pitt Street Brewing Company. Every so often you can catch Sunday Yoga and Beermosas.

Moxie Yoga

If you are interested in yoga, paddle boarding and the soft sounds of the Tar River, this may be the opportunity for you. Every Friday morning, Knee Deep Adventures partners with Moxie Yoga for an experience you won’t forget. Visit their contact form on their website to reserve your spot, anytime from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. Fill out the form, with the comment “SUP YOGA”, along with the date you wish to attend. You are required to bring a towel and water during your session. Water shoes are optional.

Biking

LimeBikes

Whether you want to go for a ride down the streets in Uptown or take in the sites on the Greenway, LimeBikes is a great way to get moving. LimeBike is the new dockless bike-sharing program that recently made its way to Greenville. All you need to do is download LimeBike’s app and you can find a bike nearby and ride anywhere for only $1. Once you’re done with your ride, just park the bike and lock it up.

Zumba

Zumba in the Park

Everything Thursday during the month of June you can head out to Town Common and enjoy Zumba in the Park. This is a free event hosted by Greenville Parks and Recreation. So grab some girlfriends and enjoy Zumba every Thursday at 6:00 pm.

 

Studio Events

If you are looking for a more concentrated workout environment, a studio may be the place for you. These types of businesses offer closer one on one attention during a workout and smaller class sizes due to limited space being available per class.

Pilates

The Absolute Studio

Pilates is a great way to build your strength without the use of weights. You use your own body weight as resistance during the exercises. The Absolute Studio offers 1 free trial session. If you decide this is the place for you, they offer Mat Pilates and both private and semi-private Pilates sessions. A single class is only $15 but there are packages available for you to purchase up to 30 classes at once.

Pure Barre

Pure Barre is a total body workout that uses the ballet barre to perform small, isometric movements. You can attend class almost any day, with classes starting as early as 5:45 am and the last classes of the day start at 5:45 pm. There is a wide variety of class packages available from one month unlimited to a single session.

Don’t let your health go on vacation this summer. These are just a few options for you to stay active and healthy. You can even just plan a family walk or bike ride after dinner a few nights a week. Enjoy your summer and stay fit while you’re at it.
