Finding Fitness in Central Park Denver

Happy 2021! It’s that time of year where many of us step back, evaluate the past year (that might be a doozy this time!), and set our intentions for the next 12 months. You may want to focus on overall health, wellness, and self care, in which case, you should check out this post from Kailee Ackerman on our team. Or maybe you plan to focus on fitness and nutrition goals – get in shape, eat healthier foods, get stronger, run a 5k, feel better, etc.. If that’s the case, keep reading.

A few years back we put together a list of options to help you navigate the Central Park fitness scene. Here’s last year’s edition. There have since been some changes, which you’ll find below. This year we’ve organized it into categories based on the type of activity (Barre, Crossfit, Bootcamp, Cycling, etc.). You’ll also find some January promotions and a few DEALS just for SCOOP readers!

Thanks to all these local businesses for providing us with information! If you check out our list and notice we missed something, just let us know and we’ll gladly add it. Lastly, if you find value in this and want to keep in touch please take 5 seconds to sign up for Central Park Scoop.

Here’s to a happy and healthy 2021!
