‘Sports in the Park’: City of Bonn offers free outdoor fitness classes for everyone

No more excuses for couch potatoes: sports classes are still on offer at several different locations in the city. They run from Monday thru Friday from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm. and feature all kinds of sports and fitness programs for all age groups.


Regular physical activity is a fundamental component of a healthy lifestyle as it is broadly known. Yet, many people still struggle to find time or motivation to participate in recurring exercise. For the second year, the City of Bonn has teamed up with the Sports Council, the municipal services SWB Energie & Wasser and the health carrier Barmer GEK and with local and regional sports associations and clubs in order to create an enjoyable and flexible offer for local citizens of every age and fitness level. The model currently spreading in Germany enjoys quite the popularity. Last year, more than 20,000 participants participated in various offers ranging from Crossfit to Aqua Jogging in Bonn. The model stands out against other offers as it is free of charge and very flexible as far as the number of participants and locations are concerned. Anyone who wants to take part may simply come and join any of the outdoor classes without prior registration. The instructors make sure that their programs work for 20 people of any experience and exercise level as well as for 200. Financial support for this offer is rendered by the City of Bonn to keep it free of charge for all participants.
