Getting outside while the weather is nice is so important to us Minnesotans! A great way to do that while also taking care of your body is by checking out some free outdoor fitness classes happening in Rochester, MN this summer.

You may have heard of this program before. It's back again this year: Fresh Air Fitness. They teach all different kinds of classes throughout the summer that are free and they're outside.

I went a couple of years ago when they did a free barre class. It was really fun to try out for free and it was a big bonus to have an excuse to get outside on a nice summer day!

Fresh Air Fitness in Rochester, MN

Fresh Air Fitness is put together by the Rochester Downtown Alliance and the classes are taught by professionals. This year, they're offering free Zumba and free Yoga classes.

Zumba classes were in May and June and they'll be coming back again in September. But starting in July are the yoga classes.

They'll take place every Monday and Wednesday in July and August. The yoga session begins at 5:15 PM and goes until about 6:15 at Central Park in downtown Rochester. Classes will be taught by instructors from 125 Live in Rochester.

If you want to participate you'll want to get there a little early because if I remember correctly you'll have to sign a waiver. Also make sure to bring your own mat, water, all of that good stuff.
