Be Fit Frisco Launches Free Fitness in the Square


(November 2, 2011) Be Fit Frisco by participating in a series of free, weekly workout sessions. Beginning November 3, the City of Frisco will host "Fitness in the Square" on Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. Free workout sessions will be held at Simpson Plaza in front of City Hall, located in the heart of Frisco Square, 6101 Frisco Square Blvd.

The inaugural class will feature Ultimate Conditioning, which is an interval style class with minimal choreography and maximal results! Participants will alternate between cardiovascular, body weight and free weight exercises over the course of an hour. Considered a great workout for all fitness levels, Ultimate Conditioning is designed to improve muscular endurance, too.

This week's workout session welcomes ages 10 and up. Participants need to bring water and a towel or mat. Participants are also welcome to bring 5 – 8 lb. weights. Fitness instructor Allison Gutschlag will lead the workout session. Gutschlag is certified in group exercise, boot camp and circuit training and personal fitness.

Be Fit Frisco is Mayor Maher Maso's health initiative and designed to promote fitness opportunities throughout our community.

"I am committed to helping our residents have all the tools they need to make good lifestyle choices and make fitness part of their lives," said Mayor Maher Maso. "Fitness should be one of the fabrics of our community. We need to consider fitness when we design our streets, sidewalks and hike and bike trails – or as we educate or host special events and programs. We need to work together to help our residents get off a diet and on a lifestyle."

*Please check for class cancellations due to inclement weather.
