Blue Cross’ free exercise classes return to Railroad Park starting today

March will bring a new way to get healthy outdoors at Birmingham’s Railroad Park.

Blue Cross and Blue Shield is bringing back its Get Healthy on the Railroad initiative, a week-long line up of free exercise classes that starts on Monday, March 2 and ends in October.

Classes start on Monday, March 2 and end in October.

Classes start at 6 p.m. and those participating are asked to arrive 15 minutes early to sign in.

“The Get Healthy program illustrates how Railroad Park serves individuals in our city,” said Camille Spratling, Railroad Park Foundation’s Executive Director. “Railroad Park is a conduit for physical and mental health and for enjoying our urban environment. Working out outside with friends while the sun sets over the Birmingham skyline is a picture of urban living that simply didn’t exist here ten years ago. Because of community partners like Blue Cross and Blue Shield, this is a reality, and it’s a free one. Blue Cross funds the program so that anyone can come here and take free classes from top-level instructors.”

On Mondays, the park will host The New Jazzercise that combines Strike, Core, Fusion, Strength and Dance Mixx class styles into one session. Mats and weights aren’t required but are suggested. The New Jazzercise can burn up to 800 calories.

A Bootcamp class will be held on Tuesdays, followed by Zumba on Wednesdays and Yoga for all fitness levels on Thursdays.

Happy Feet Fridays will combine running and walking by teaching proper techniques for both.
