Westside Fitness Options

|||| |||| ||||

The West View asked readers on Facebook what their favorite low-cost way to exercise was, and the most popular answer by far was running, cycling or walking on the Jordan River Trail. Others mentioned swimming laps or working out at Northwest Recreation Center, boxing at the Sorenson Center, or bustin’ a move at the free Early Morning Zumba class in Glendale.

This attractive space provides opportunities for well-behaved dogs to romp and socialize with one another, while their humans supervise nearby. Located at the north end of the park at 1060 S 900 West.

One of the most popular forms of exercise with West View readers is walking, running and cycling the Jordan River Parkway trail. The trail accesses multiple city parks, two popular dog parks and provides a refreshing sliver of green space through the heart of Salt Lake City. People of all ages can be seen recreating and exercising on the trail – alone, with their dogs or their families.
