There are several opportunities to engage in physical fitness, whether that’s out our front door, at home or at a gym, it’s all good! Below are some different opportunities to move:  

  • FITNESS THURSDAYS (Crunch and Lunch)  - Back virtually! All levels are welcome. Although we can't be in-person, we can be virtually in-person and you are invited to join me on Thursdays at noon, for a roughly 1hour class using bodyweight, light weights and resistance bands.  You are welcome to have your camera on, though it is not required. All you need is enough space to move, and if you don't have weights, there are plenty of household items that can work!

    STARTING JANUARY 7 - If you've been participating in Crunch and Lunch/Fitness Class this last month, you've been with us on Tuesdays. We are shifting over to Thursdays at noon and the link for ALL of the classes (thru May just in case) is here:

There are a few gyms in the area that have offered City employees a way to join without their join fee or a reduced rate.  The following are discounts that apply to you as a City employee (regardless of your bargaining unit): 

  1. The Duluth YMCA will waive their join fee for any City employee during quarterly trial periods. Otherwise, employees will pay $15 enrollment fee.  Employees must show their employee id or paystub as verification when registering for a membership.
  2. Anytime Fitness will waive their enrollment and key fob fee for any City employee, but employee must sign up for 12-months.
  3. 9Round Fitness is offering 50% OFF a one-time registration (normally $199 will only be $99 for any City employee). This is a special opportunity that will be available for all those new to 9Round.
