Montgomery County’s “Be Active Montgomery!” initiative, launched earlier this year, introduces creative ways for residents to meet their fitness goals.

Montgomery County Recreation offers hundreds of activities that fit different lifestyles and interests. With programs that include a calming, holistic approach to fitness through yoga or Tai Chi, to a more dynamic fitness workout such as Zumba or Piloxing, there are programs and classes for everyone.

Free class demonstrations are currently being offered at certain Recreation facilities. Residents can choose to participate in one or all of the demonstrations. Also available this month is a 10 percent discount coupon that can be used for any Recreation class or program, including therapeutic recreation classes. Visit for a complete schedule of demonstrations.
