Group Exercise

Ackerman SFC will reopen for outdoor group fitness classes and personal training only beginning on Monday, June 8, as allowed under Phase 3: Recovery guidelines within the Restore Illinois Plan.

How Outdoor Group Fitness Classes Will Work During Phase 3 of Restore Illinois:

  1. Purchase a $20 Group Fitness Class Pass at gepark.org/membership. The pass will be valid June 8 to July 8, 2020, and enables you to preregister for any of the outdoor group fitness classes. Insurance-based memberships including SilverSneakers, Renew Active, or Well on Target do not need to purchase a class pass in order to preregister for classes. The pass is available to both residents and nonresidents.
  2. Browse the Outdoor Group Fitness Schedule to pick the classes for which you want to preregister.
  3. Preregister for classes online at gepark.org/register. Registration will open at 9am on June 5th for the June 8th-June 21st classes and at 9am on June 19th for June 22nd-July 8th classes. You can search for classes using the title of the class or the 6-digit code found on pages 3-5 of the Outdoor Group Fitness Schedule.

Please select only the classes you know you will be able to attend. If you are unable to attend a class you registered for or need assistance registering, please contact Stacey Lim at slim@gepark.org or call (630) 317-0130.

All classes will be socially distanced and limited to 9 participants. Additional participants will be put on a waiting list and contacted when a spot becomes available. Walk-ups will only be allowed if you have purchased a Group Fitness Class Pass and there are spots available. Due to guidelines and safety, there will be no exceptions to the class maximum.
