It's Cold Out There!
With the cold weather breathing down our necks, sometimes it’s difficult to motivate ourselves to get out there in the cold and exercise. Thankfully for those of us who are true desert rats and do not favor cold weather, the City has a variety of options to exercise indoors.

The Swimming Pool and Racquetball Complex located at 861 Avenue B offers year ‘round swimming with a variety of water exercise classes. Water has a unique combination of buoyancy, resistance and hydrostatic pressure, making swimming the perfect medium to reduce the strain of exercise. Additionally, being in the water has an overall soothing quality. For those folks looking for a highly invigorating activity, this complex also offers racquetball courts. These courts host racquetball and wallyball. Bring your own equipment or ask at the front desk for the types of equipment that can be rented.

If you are a walker but find the cold weather a deterrent, you have a couple of options. First, take advantage of the Fitness Center located at 801 Adams Boulevard. This is a great facility as it is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. In the afternoons, the Recreation Department, located at 900 Arizona Street, has Open Gym hours from 2:30 – 9 p.m. Monday - Thursday, 2:30 – 6 p.m. Friday and 1 – 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. The gym is large enough that even with other activities taking place, there is room to walk the indoor perimeter of the facility. Please note that when league games are taking place, walking the facility may not be possible. Current league schedules are available at the Recreation Department office located in the same building.

Monday night at 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday at noon, a lively group of people are playing ping-pong at the ABC Park Gym. This is an informal yet highly enthusiastic group of ping-pong players and they welcome players at all levels. You can find out more by visiting their web site at
