Now through Jan. 28, start getting healthier for free at two local places of fitness during Active Santa Monica week. Venues include the Fitness Room at Memorial Park and the Santa Monica Swim Center, city officials said.
At Memorial Park, LIfeFitness strength training machines, hand weights and cardio machines will be available for use. The Fitness Room is located at 1401 Olympic Blvd. and is open Monday through Friday, noon to 9 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, it is open from noon to 7 p.m. No membership is required. For age requirements and additional information, call (310) 458-2201.
Three classes will be offered at the Santa Monica Swim Center. The classes are Shallow Wet Water Workout, occurring Sundays at 8:15 a.m. and Mondays and Wednesdays at 7 p.m., Deep Wet Water Workout, which takes place on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7 p.m. and Adult Fitness Swim, which happens on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:30 p.m.
The Wet Workouts are low-impact and integrate aerobic exercise with strength-training. All skill levels are welcome in either class. However, Deep Water Workout participants must be able to swim one pool length. The Adult Fitness Swim is for those who would like to improve their technique and form, as well as develop endurance and physical fitness with the help of an expert coach.
