Community welcomed to get fit at Onondaga Lake Park

Onondaga County Parks and Wegmans have teamed together to bring back the popular Fit for the Next Fifty and Live Well wellness programs at Onondaga Lake Park. These outdoor programs are geared toward mature audiences, yet are open to all community members who are interested in getting fit, meeting new people and enjoying the outdoors.

Starting Monday May 3, the Wegmans Fit for the Next Fifty is held from 8:30 to 10 a.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and continuing through Friday Sept. 24.

This aerobic program is designed to improve strength and cardiovascular conditioning, as well as, proper stretching techniques. Classes will not be held on May 31, July 5 or Sept. 6.

Wegmans Live Well is held from 9 to 10 a.m. and 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday starting Tuesday June 1 and continuing through Thursday Aug. 26.

This program combines Tai-Chi, yoga and Pilates into a comprehensive workout, and is designed to increase flexibility, teach relaxation and meditation skills, and help develop long, lean muscles. The evening class will not be held on June 22.

Both of these free programs take place on the aerobic lawn located in the Wegmans Landing section of Onondaga Lake Park. Registration is not required for either program. In the event of inclement weather, classes will be canceled.
