Bringing Free Fitness & Nutrition Programs to Easily Accessible Sites In Austin

About Stronger Austin’s Programs

Stronger Austin brings free fitness and nutrition programming to easily accessible sites within Austin communities. When possible, adult and youth programming will coincide to allow for easier access for the entire family.

The Stronger Austin team is currently working closely with community members and organizations to develop the desired mix of programming in the initiative’s initial target neighborhoods: 78724, 78752, 78753, 78741, 78744, and 78745. Limited programming will be available in fall 2017, with expanded programming beginning in early 2018.

Stronger Austin partners with community organizations to bring nutrition workshops and cooking classes to neighboring places and spaces.

Fitness in the Park & Group Fitness Classes

Stronger Austin’s physical activity programming includes a variety of beginner-friendly classes including Zumba, yoga, Jazzercise, as well as intermediate level classes like boot camps and circuit training.
