Free Fitness Classes through September 29

Columbus Commons is excited to offer seven weekly fitness classes this season. All classes are provided free of charge thanks to UnitedHealthcare and are taught by Ohio Fit Club instructors. Two sessions will be offered, so mark your calendars to enjoy a unique open-air experience!

New this year, beginning March 18: Every Tuesday from Noon to 1pm, we are offering a Runners’ Prep class at Columbus Commons. The class will supplement your long-distance regimen. In other words, it’s not a running class; it’s a class to help you become a better runner. So pack your workout clothes and enjoy a lunchtime workout. More details are below. Please complete a waiver before participating; this is required. Please meet in the East Lawn for this class (the lawn at the corner of Rich and Third streets).

Registration

All participants are required to register by filling out an online waiver and release. Register online by filling out a waiver to take all six weekly classes for both sessions. Once you fill out the online registration and waiver form, you have access to all classes throughout the season. Only one registration is required per person. If you participated in Columbus Commons Fitness Classes last year, please submit a new online registration form. If participants do not fill out an online waiver/registration form, they may be asked to leave the fitness classes.
