GREENVILLE – YOLO Urban Park in downtown Greenville may have opened just a month ago, but it has already been welcomed with open arms by the community. Every day, children can be seen playing in the park’s water feature, adults can be seen chatting with friends, and – with great consistency – the community can be found participating in fitness classes.

To celebrate YOLO Urban Park’s opening weekend, Fit by Loy offered a free cardio drumming class at the park, where over 15 people of all ages worked up a sweat while having fun. The following weekend, BMF and Nature’s Heart Yoga provided “on the go” workouts, and on September 8 and 9, the three fitness studios were at it again. This time, Fit by Loy hosted REFIT, led by instructor Sarah Beard, while BMF and Nature’s Heart Yoga offered a continuation of their previous class.

“Leading fitness classes at YOLO Park has been fantastic,” said Nicole Loy, owner of Fit by Loy. “It’s always fun to be outdoors, and this beautiful location has made the classes even better. We couldn’t have asked for better weather, and the turnout has been wonderful.”

All three studios hope to continue to offer classes at YOLO Park until the weather dictates otherwise. “We care about ensuring people have fun while working out,” said Loy, “and we are grateful YOLO Park offers us the opportunity to increase the excitement by exercising outdoors.”
