Looking for fun ways to stay active this fall? Boise Parks & Recreation’s new fall activity guide has plenty of opportunities for you to get fit and have fun, regardless of your age or ability. Whether you want to burn some belly fat, or just have a good time, you’ll find classes for youth, teens, adults and even adaptive recreation classes for those with disabilities.
Boise mayor David Bieter notes that activities like those in the guide fit well with the Let’s Move Boise campaign. It’s part of Let’s Move, an initiative to help reduce childhood obesity, headed by First Lady Michelle Obama. You can check out new fitness classes, try your hand at arts and crafts, or explore the great outdoors of the Treasure Valley.
For youth, some of the highlights of the fall activity guide include golf, karate, swimming and mountain biking. Teens can enroll in kettlebell fitness or karate, or come by the supervised weight room or join in Friday night activities. There are also dance classes and ice skating lessons for all ages.
But don’t let the kids have all the fun—there’s plenty for adults to do, too. Whether you want to try yoga, tai chi, core conditioning, Pilates, golf, karate, volleyball, basketball, or mountain biking, there’s an activity for you.
Adaptive recreation classes are also available for persons with disabilities. Explore fitness, dance, bowling, cooking, and art, or join the walking club.
