Posted by Nancy W for Activos! on November 19, 2013, 8:58 pm

There have been a number of questions about Activos gym so I thought it would be helpful to post a summary.

Activos gym is a non profit organization working for the community of La Manzanilla.

Monday-Saturday 7:30-11:00am and 4:30-8:30pm

The yellow star on the map.

I often get asked if it's really hot in the gym and the answer is no! It has a lot of fans and the building is well shaded with a palapa upstairs.

Class schedule:
All classes (except Artes Marciales) are in the airy upstairs palapa with fans.

Z-Fitness is very similar to Zumba which is a dance workout.

Cardio 100 is a fitness class based on the 'Insanity' workout series - it is a lot of fun!

Spinning is a great full body workout using the stationary bike. It is way more than just riding a bike for 45 mins and is an excellent low-impact alternative for people with knee problems.

Artes Marciales is a mixed martial arts class with Jimmy Garcia. He focuses on strength training and resistance.

'Zumba Kids' and 'Baile para Ninos' are kid's classes for the 6-11 year olds.

With Mexico hitting number one for obesity Activos hopes to have a positive impact on the health and wellness of the La Manzanilla community. Drop by and check it out, and tell your friends and neighbors!
