    Fun Ways To Get Fit Pleasanton

    August 25, 2017

    There's no time like the present to get in shape. While fans of the old-school methods might prefer the gym due to the abundance of high quality equipment and the sense of camaraderie gained from seeing fellow fitness enthusiasts, there's more than one way to get healthy and sculpt your body when you're a resident of the spectacular luxury apartments in Pleasanton, CA. Here, the gym is but the tip of the iceberg, and a closer examination of the offerings around town will reveal that there are plenty of fun pursuits that will simultaneously engage your thirst for excitement while getting in that weekly exercise quota.

    Can You Get Fit And Have A Good Time?

    The answer, of course, is yes. From playing a few rounds of your favorite sport, to taking an in-depth group class, to heading out into the wilds, Pleasanton has all you need to satisfy your combination exercise/fun times.

    Sport?

    Sports are a great way to get some cardio and socialize with friends at the same time. In Pleasanton, you've got your pick of various activities and an abundance of places to play them. If you're a fan of tennis, for example, you've got your pick of about 29 different courts around the area to choose from.

    These run the gamut from local schools, to community centers, to beautiful parks, and even include a nice country club location to boot. What's more, using the aforementioned court listing, you can find other players who you match up with in terms of skill and set up a match.

    You might even consider joining a league, or upping your tennis game by hiring a coach or attending some training sessions. Dust off your old racket, get the bucket of tennis balls, and head down to the court for an intense workout.

    If tennis isn't your sport, though, you could go with hoop instead. There's a long list of both indoor and outdoor basketball courts located throughout the city, and plenty of eager ballers wishing to test their skills against some worthy competition.

    Beyond the many pickup games you might stumble across, there's also an adult basketball league held in the Fall, Winter, and Spring. The league is split into different skill levels, so you'll be playing against other enthusiasts that match up well with your talents and likely won't run the risk of getting annihilated by competition that's out of your orbit.

    And it's not just basketball and tennis that you can avail yourself of in Pleasanton. There are official leagues for Volleyball, Bocce, and Softball as well, all looking for new participants. No matter your skill level, these are all great ways to get fit while having some fun.

    Classes?

    There are places all around Pleasanton for you to take a few fitness classes. Your favorite gym is an obvious choice, and many offer the full range of group sessions that cover Yoga, Pilates, strength training, core workouts, and the like.

    If you want to immerse yourself in something a bit more out of the ordinary, though, you might instead try enrolling in some classes at a studio like Pure Barre. The low-impact nature of Barre is great for building strength and flexibility while protecting your joints by cutting out all the tricky jumping around that other workouts usually incorporate. They've got plenty of classes, so be sure to check this one out.

    Alternatively, you could try something even more exciting, like a Zumba or Pole Fitness class. These provide a way to move your body and challenge your abilities all-in-one, and there are several spots in Pleasanton, like Twirly Girls and Fitness 19 that have exactly what you're looking for.

    Hiking?

    There's nothing like getting out into nature and daring yourself to a challenging hike. Around Pleasanton, you've got a wide range of local and regional parks that have some awesome trails. The Augustin Bernal Park, for instance, has several miles of winding pathways that will take you through the best of what the local ecosystem has to offer.

    On top of the great exercise, this park also has some great views. The high points along the trails will reveal glimpses of Sunol, Mission Peak, and the Ohlone Wilderness areas. You can gaze over to Kilkare Canyon and even peer to the Livermore-Amador Valley and Mount Diablo. Best of all, your four legged friend can come along for the adventure, and as long as you stick to the undeveloped parts of the wilds, you won't even need to keep them on the leash.

    It's a beauty of a place, but far from the only one with great trails. You can check out the Regional Park Finder to get the lowdown on the best spots to hike and engage in other park-centric activities that will get your blood pumping and provide their fair share of fun as well.

    Gym?

    Of course, some traditionalists might just want to have a good time throwing around some weights or hitting the stationary bike, and for them, there are more than enough great gyms in Pleasanton to go around. From ClubSport to Fit Style to The Hitt Factory, you'll be able to workout your way (and with a rather affordable membership to boot). Be sure to check out what they all have to offer and get down to whichever best matches your personal exercise style.
