Amped in the Park

Written by Marybeth Stockdale

Woodstock Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a health and fitness fair Saturday, September 7, in conjunction with the September AMPED in the Park monthly fitness event at Northside Hospital Cherokee Amphitheater. The fair will take place following the regularly scheduled hour-long AMPED in the Park workout that begins at 8:00am.
The AMPED in the Park Fair goes until 1:00pm. There will be fitness demonstrations on the amphitheater stage and a variety of vendors, businesses, and organizations on-site to educate citizens about the wealth of fitness, health, and wellness options available in Woodstock. Health, fitness, and wellness businesses interested in participating should contact amphitheater manager Jamey Snyder. Healthful restaurants and makers of wellness products are also welcomed to participate.
 
“With the AMPED in the Park Fair, we will have as many fitness, health, and wellness options as possible to empower people with the knowledge they need,” Snyder said. “Making healthy choices in life isn’t the same for everyone. Instead of ‘one-size-fits-all,’ we will have a variety of ‘sizes.’”

Here’s what you can expect from this early Saturday event:
-60-minute fitness workout directed from the stage beginning at 8:00am
-Fitness demonstrations from the stage throughout the event
-All manner of fitness and health vendors spread throughout the venue
-Healthy food options for lunch
-Children’s activities, games, and inflatables
 
Participants should arrive 20 minutes early to register and prepare for the 60-minute workout. A bottle of water and a yoga/workout mat are encouraged.
 
Each month, City of Woodstock Parks and Recreation Department partners with a different Woodstock-based fitness organization to bring a variety of workout options to the Northside Hospital Cherokee Amphitheater for AMPED in the Park. Learn more at WoodstockParksAndRec.com.
