I’m sure that Park City is not alone in the recent trend of gym classes moving outside. And yes, some outdoor classes had already existed. Yet, how many outdoor classes offer a view this inspiring?
While hiking and biking were already a part of my own routine, during COVID, these outings have increased significantly. In part because all gym classes were cancelled.
But over the last two weeks, as I hiked past parks, I started spotting more than a few workout classes. These groups are spread out (remember, COVID) over large areas. People six plus feet apart, with matts laid out on the grass. General gym classes with bands and hand weights, as well as yoga and sport specific activities. I found myself making sure no one was “too close.”
And just beyond the classes? The Canyons and Park City Ski Resorts and the Wasatch back mountain range. Inspiring. It’s hard to not want to run over and join in.
While there are obvious concerns about how far we need to stay from others and what precaution have to be taken when we do get together, these classes are intriguing. And optimistic. Maybe it’s the optimism that’s most striking aspect of it all. The opportunity to get fit in front of a beautiful mountain range is moving.
So, I hope everyone continues to stay safe and make good choices in their personal bid to stay fit. And if you can make it happen in a gorgeous setting like ours, so much the better.
Cheers to your next visit,
Your Resort Resident
