‘Health within the Park’ returns to Marquette this summer time


MARQUETTE, Michigan (WLUC) – Two Marquette women are taking the gym outside this summer.

Charise Baker and Lynne Mestnik are running Fitness in The Park at the Kaufman Sports Complex all summer long.

Classes include a mix of yoga, pilates, and core workouts. They are behind the soccer fields every Tuesday and Friday at 9:15 a.m.

Participation is free, but donations are welcome.

Baker and Mestnik started out of class last summer because of the pandemic and found it very popular.

“Lots of people we know worked out outside instead of going to the gym inside in the summer,” says Baker. “They know we have such a short season that it’s good to take advantage of that.”

Anyone can take part in the workouts, but children must be accompanied by an adult.

Baker says for anyone who wants more updates all summer to befriend her on Facebook and she will add you to a separate ‘Fitness in the Park’ group.
