The Virginia Zoo wants you to get fit with them this summer

NORFOLK, Va. – A partnership with the Virginia Zoo and the YMCA of South Hampton Roads is allowing community members the opportunity to take a monthly fitness class at the zoo this summer.

According to a release from the Virginia Zoo, the once a month classes will start on May 26 and will run until August 25, and are also for all ages.

“The Y on Granby and the Blocker YMCA are excited to get people moving at the Virginia Zoo,” said Gina Adrover, Health and Wellness Director for the YMCA of South Hampton Roads. “Any type of movement is important to stay healthy in life, so we’re offering a variety of group fitness classes, lead by certified instructors, for everyone to enjoy! We look forward to seeing familiar faces and some new ones, as we workout together surrounded by the unique environment of the Virginia Zoo,” Adrover added.

The cost to attend the programs are free to all that are members of either the Virginia Zoo or the YMCA of South Hampton Roads. General admission is the cost for those who are not members of either organization.

Program officials say that spots are limited for the classes, and that you can RSVP on the Virginia Zoo’s website.
