Group Fitness Virtual Classes

With a new wave of COVID-19 surging across the state of Illinois and the nation, the state announced that all 11 regions will move into Tier 3 effective November 20, 2020, at 12:01A.

The new mitigation requirements significantly impact the Parks Plus Fitness Center Group Fitness operation as INDOOR GROUP FITNESS CLASSES ARE SUSPENDED as part of the updated guidelines.

Group fitness classes will take place remotely via Zoom. A dedicated meeting code and password will be sent to all Group Fitness Members via email confirmation with exercise class reservations. You will use this to access Zoom and meet with your instructor live from your home.

Please review the schedule below as modifications were required in order to facilitate these classes virtually.

Reservations for these classes are required. You will need to make sure your Zoom profile is set to your first and last name so you can be confirmed as a member. The instructors will not let anyone in that is not displaying a member name on their profile.

If you have not used Zoom before, we have provided a link to a tutorial sponsored by Zoom. This will help you download or access Zoom on your home device (computer, tablet, or phone) and give you a brief overview of the application features. Learn More

Please be sure to log-in five minutes before your class is set to begin. Make sure to have your equipment, towel, and water bottle ready with enough workout space for you to focus on YOU and getting the results you want from your workout.

If you have questions or have an issue accessing a class, please email fitness@wheatonparks.org or call the front desk at 630-871-6713 so that we can confirm you have the up to date Meeting ID and Access Code.

As always, if you have any questions please contact me directly, you will find my contact information below.
