Running in Palm Beach
BallenIsles residents are committed to living healthy lifestyles
One of the most popular New Year’s resolutions is to get healthy, but at times, it can be difficult to find a way to carry it out. When one has life obligations such as work, family and a busy lifestyle, along with the hectic pace of the holidays just starting to slow down, it can be easy to fall back into old habits. This is why you should take advantage of the multiple exercise options around Palm Beach County. The variety means that you can easily work them into your busy schedule, find something that goes at the strenuous level that works for you, and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to find the class or race that fits your lifestyle. Read on to see some of what Palm Beach County has to offer you.
Come support Jupiter High School’s boys and girls lacrosse teams and the Wounded Veteran’s Relief Fund on March 3rd, 2018. Racers will meet up at the track at Jupiter High School and loop around it down Toney Penna Drive and past Pennock Lake. There will be winners awarded for the overall male and female participants, and the top three positions in every category for both males and females. The first 275 people to register will receive a shirt and a goody bag.
In its seventh year, the Riverbend Park 5k Green Run/Walk helps raise money for the Jupiter Environmental Research and Field Studies Academy (JERFSA) at Jupiter High School, which allows students to study the wildlife and ecosystem that surrounds the Jupiter area, along with learn about careers in wildlife preservation. Participants will meet at Riverbend Park on February 24, 2018 to run or walk through the park on the crushed shell rock trail that runs throughout it. The first 350 participants to sign up will receive a T-shirt.
Benefitting local children’s charities and the Allamanda’s Health and Wellness Program, this annual 5k takes place at the Gardens Mall! On March 11, 2018, participants will meet up at the Brio at the Gardens Mall, loop around the perimeter of the mall, and up the hill towards Saks Fifth Avenue. Participants will be treated to breakfast at Brio’s after the 5k is completed, and awards will be given out after that. All participants will receive a dry-fit shirt and a participant medal.
Some may feel that a race doesn’t fit into their lifestyle. Fortunately, BallenIsles hosts a multitude of fitness options to work with a variety of people. The cycling club organizes rides around Palm Beach County. The Fitness Center has their own calendar that features various events at different times-we highly recommend the cardio classes. Those who may be looking to exercise at their own pace may consider the Fitness Trail that runs around BallenIsles which allows for participants to choose the intensity and speed at which they want to work. The Sports Complex itself offers machines for residents to work on the fitness regimens that they have scheduled for themselves. One of BallenIsles more popular sports- golf- is also highlighted, with everything from golf clinics at the practice facility to expert tools provided at the golf pro shop provided to everyone, no matter the skill level. After the use of the golf course, residents will be able to cool off at the newly renovated Clubhouse, which will be finished in the fall of 2018. Overlooking the golf course, residents will be able to enjoy the restaurants and bars located within the Clubhouse, all just minutes after finishing a hard workout on the green.
