Safe Fun-Fit at the Bayfront
May 22, 2020
Many people enjoy biking, running, jogging, and walking along the shoreline. However due to COVID-19, social distancing on the narrow pathway has been challenging. To increase physical activity and promote a healthier Corpus Christi, City Manager Peter Zanoni has created a new health and wellness initiative to take place along the Corpus Christi Bayfront on Ocean Drive, between Cole Park and where Shoreline Boulevard begins. On Saturdays, Shoreline Boulevard will be temporarily closed to north bound traffic from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. creating a fitness lane for residents to bike, run, jog ,and walk along the Bayfront from Ayers Street to Lawrence Street. This free program for all ages and abilities will expand exercise opportunities along this beautiful backdrop!
Classes will be offered though a partnership with VFit Productions, a local company devoted to promoting a healthy lifestyle, and the City's Parks and Recreation Department. Participants are encouraged to bring their own face coverings, sun block, yoga mat and water, as appropriate, for their workout. Exercise and wellness events will be held on Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., from June 6 – August 29, 2020, at The Water’s Edge (602 S. Shoreline Boulevard). Pre-registration is required. This free program for all skill levels, ages 18 and older.
