No contracts, no excuses! Among the park perks at Columbus Commons are free fitness classes. Sponsored by United Healthcare and instructed by Ohio Fit Club, you’ll find seven classes every week. They represent the entire A-to-Z spectrum of exercise; that runs from Aerobics (Cardio Classes) to Zumba! Two sessions will be offered, so mark your calendars to enjoy a unique open-air experience.
Session 1: Monday, May 2– Saturday, June 11 (No class on May 30)
Session 2: Monday, Aug. 1 – Saturday, Oct. 1 (No class on Aug. 27, Sept. 5 or Sept. 14)
All participants are required to fill out an online waiver and release in order take part in Columbus Commons Fitness classes. Once you fill out the online waiver form, you are free to attend all seven weekly classes for both sessions. If you submitted a waiver prior to April 4, 2016, please submit a new waiver here. If participants do not fill out an online waiver, they may be asked to leave the fitness classes.
When you attend your first Columbus Commons fitness class, please be sure to check-in at the table, located at the center of the brick, Town street walkway between the North and South lawn, to ensure that all who participate have completed a waiver (Monday evening Bootcamp check-in will take place in the South Lawn).
Once you check in, you will be given a wristband indicating that you have completed a waiver, so you won't need to check in each time as long as you are wearing the wristband at each class. Blank waivers will also be available to complete on site.
