March madness is almost behind us and there are lots of great things happening at the new Grand Park Community Recreation Center as we approach spring and the shoulder season.  The hours are changing again (they were extended hours in March) . Monday-Friday the rec center is open from 6am to 9pm, Saturday is 7:30 to 9pm and Sunday is 10am to 6pm.

The new fitness class schedule is out for April and there are a ton of fun new adult and kids classes.  I look forward to trying some new classes and sticking with my old faves.  I’ve really enjoyed Mia’s Wheel Jam spin classes this winter.  She offers such a fun and challenging workout.  I’ll hopefully avoid the lung burning and saddle sores that spring mountain biking in Winter Park always brings.  I’ll be sure to try my friend Mara’s new spin class on Tuesdays and Real Estate of Winter Park’s own Sue Seemann is teaching a “Shift and Lift” class on Sundays which sounds like fun! There are also water fitness classes, pilates, martial arts and aerobics type classes on the schedule as well.

If you need daycare while you enjoy a class or want to sit and soak in the hot tub alone, they offer that with limited hours at the rec center as well.  Check out the April class schedule, Playful Penguin child care hours and save me a bike now that I’ve let you in on my favorites but if that’s not your thing I’ll see you at the pool!!
