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.
Expanded Out of School Time
Stronger Austin’s Teach Healthier After School program is designed for elementary and middle school-aged youth and provides fun games, group activities, and nutrition.
Nutrition/Cooking Education Classes
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.
Stronger Austin will initially focus on walking groups led by volunteers across the community. Other activity groups, such as gardening, running, and cycling groups, will be added based on direction by community members and the Community Advisory Board.
