The Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce, city of Grand Rapids, Experience Grand Rapids, Downtown Grand Rapids Inc. and SweatNET Grand Rapids, among others, are teaming up to launch Grand Rapids Fitness Fest from April 30-May 9.

The event will include dozens of local gyms and fitness entrepreneurs offering classes at parks throughout the city, including dance, boxing, yoga, Zumba and more. There will be no cost for providers to conduct their classes.

“Our community is at its best when it is active, vibrant and together,” Mayor Rosalynn Bliss said. “We are excited to be able to offer our residents this opportunity to get fit while enjoying our beautiful parks and public spaces.”

“We set out thinking about fun ways to show off the many great parts of our city,” said Rich App, retail, retention and attraction specialist for the chamber, city of Grand Rapids and DGRI. “In addition to participating in the exercise programming, we strongly encourage folks to get out and enjoy the numerous social zones that have been a bright spot through this recovery.”

Individuals can purchase a $20 pass that provides unlimited access to all events, as well as the kickoff event. The passes will be available starting April 12 at the GR Fitness Fest website. Drop-in options will be available in limited quantities. The city of Grand Rapids waived park reservation fees.

“This is a wonderful way to support physical fitness, small business and outdoor activation as we transition to summer,” Grand Rapids City Manager Mark Washington said. “In addition to us being known as a river city, furniture city, art city and beer city, we can create an additional identity as a fit city.”
