Make fitness a priority for every member of your family this month (and the rest of the year) by participating in one of the events or activities below.

PRESCHOOL FITNESS PROGRAMS; AGES 3-6

Classes for this age group focus on coordination, motor skills and elementary skills; selections include swim lessons, soccer, tennis, taekwondo, basketball and dance. Many of the programs require parent participation.

YOUTH AND TEEN FITNESS PROGRAMS; AGES 5-18

Classes (selections include taekwondo, dance, soccer, tennis, football, wrestling, archery, basketball, fencing, baseball, futsal, volleyball and swimming) provide an introduction to the fundamental skills required for each sport and teach the principles of teamwork and sportsmanship.

ADULT FITNESS PROGRAMS

Try out a new activity or build on existing skills, relieve stress and meet new people; offerings include dance, yoga, tai chi, tennis, lap swim, aquacise and various sports leagues. Some of the programs are ongoing due to their popularity, and mature teens may sometimes enroll.

SENIOR FITNESS PROGRAMS

Programs for seniors exercise the mind and body and serve as a valuable social outlet. Many help participants avoid injury by building and maintaining strength, balance and flexibility. Selections include yoga, tai chi, Zumba, aquacise, a “Forever Fit” series, and the guided Walk and Talk program that takes participants on tours of Folsom’s beautiful recreational trails. Drop-in pickleball continues to be a very popular program, with beginner through advanced classes and tournaments offered. Seniors may also enroll in adult fitness programs and sports leagues.

OUTDOOR WORKOUTS

Folsom’s 38-mile network of beautiful paved recreational trails provides convenient access for walking, running or cycling workouts. Download a trails map from the city’s website.

FAMILY FITNESS EVENTS
