FitNation Gurnee is providing free, outdoor fitness for the sixth year! The program was started to make fitness accessible for everyone at every level. Gurnee Park District looks to help the community get healthier, while having a good time. From boot camp to yoga and hydrofit, there is something for every age and every ability level to enjoy this summer. When choosing a location, we make sure there is ample parking, appropriate workout space, and overall FUN atmosphere. This summer outdoor fitness will take place at: 

Betty Russell Park (5300 Pinewood Road)  Summer Boot Camp
Ravinia Park (920 Ravinia Drive) 
Yoga in the Park
Hunt Club Park Aquatic Center (900 N. Hunt Club Road)
Hydrofit

Boot camp takes place every Wednesday, from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. The last day for summer boot camp is August 14.

Yogis can start off their weekends at yoga in the park every other Friday, from 10 – 11 am. The last Yoga in the park will take place on August 9.

Those that are looking for a low impact option can consider hydrofit, every other Thursday from 7:15 – 8:15 pm. The last night for hydrofit will be on July 25.

When coming to an outdoor fitness class, remember to bring your water bottle, shoes that you don't mind being outdoors, and towel. Proper swim attire is required for hydrofit. Both boot camp and yoga focus on exercises that do not need equipment, meaning participants can take their workouts home. Our FitNation instructors are nationally certified and will always provide modification options. If you need help during any class, never hesitate to ask.

If there is inclement weather, be sure to check the Rainout Line (rainoutline.com/gurneeparkdistrict) before heading out to the park.
