Honor your commitment to fitness while you honor the service of our troops this Memorial Day weekend. Go for a jog, grill up some healthy sliders, or take advantage of one of these four fab fitness options this weekend.
Yoga Day at Turner Field
There’s nothing more American than a baseball game. On Saturday, head to the field early to catch an hour-long morning yoga class before watching the Braves crush the Milwaukee Brewers. For 40 bucks, you’ll get a snazzy Atlanta Braves yoga mat with your game ticket. Yoga starts at 9:30 a.m. Get your tickets before they sell out!
Atlanta Bachata Festival
Practice your sultry Latin dance moves by the pool, attend salsa and bachata workshops, attend themed parties, and check out spectacular dance showcases at this four-day dance festival held at the Grand Hyatt. Get the full schedule and details at their website. It looks a little something like this:
Stone Mountain’s Salute to the Troops
It’s a gorgeous weekend for a bit of hiking or biking at Stone Mountain. Log some miles then stick around for a special patriotic fireworks display after the new and improved Lasershow Spectacular with added fire effects — because nothing says ‘merica like flame cannons that shoot fire nearly 100 feet into the air. Entry into the park is $15 and all active and retired military personnel get a free Adventure Pass (for all of the sundry Stone Mountain activities) plus $10 off per person for immediate family members.
Go for a Swim
It’s officially pool season, y’all! Put on those goggles and hit the water at one of Atlanta’s many public pools (or better yet, find a friend with a pool). Atlanta Magazine has a great guide to the best outdoor public swimming options in the city. Do a few laps and don’t forget the sunscreen!
