Let’s take a walk around Prescott Valley and look at the opportunities you have to continue on your fitness and health goals for 2022.
We love the outdoors and have trails to get you out and moving. The Iron King Trail is a 14-mile, moderately trafficked, out-and-back trail for all skill levels. For the more advanced hiker, there is the 4.5-mile Glassford Summit Trail, best used April to September.
Easily accessed year-round is the Mountain Valley Park/Urban Forest Lakes Park trail. This is a 2.5-mile trail around both parks with exercise stations and lake views. Hiking or walking with dogs is more fun but remember to keep them leashed and please pick up after them.
We have a wonderful variety of indoor options, too.
The Movement Studio has been serving the Tri-City area with dance, fitness and kenpo karate for over nine years. It is a family-friendly studio offering something for everyone, including free child care for the fitness classes, family pricing and discounts. Owner Sasha Naasz offers challenge programs and fun group activities.
Just down the street is Anytime Fitness, independently owned and operated by Jonathan and Leanne Shearer. A healthy lifestyle starts with a plan and that is why they offer solutions that incorporate a lifestyle change. Anytime Fitness is a full-service, 24-hour gym with equipment that includes cardio, circuit machines, plate-loaded machines, free weights and a full utility room including heavy bags. Aerobics classes are included in the membership. Recently the indoor cycling program was relaunched; Cycle District, formerly known as SpNRG.
