The Maryland Zoo


   CrossFit at the Zoo is a 60-minute, fully-guided class designed for all fitness levels. Participants will warm-up at Penguin Coast with views of flowing water and swimming penguins, followed bycardio and bodyweight-movement stations set up throughout African Journey. After a cool-down with the penguins, participants get to meet one of the Zoo’s Animal Ambassadors.

“This is a wild, fun way to work out!,” said Colleen Burch, director of events. “The Maryland Zoo is excited to offer a unique setting for exercise enthusiasts. We hope participants will enjoy seeing and hearing the animals while they get expert CrossFit instruction.”

            CrossFit at the Zoo instruction and equipment is offered by 410 CrossFit of Baltimore. Guests are encouraged to bring a reusable water bottle and towel.       The class is coed and intended for those 14 years of age and older.

      Do burpees by the flamingos, push-ups by the African crested porcupines and lunges by the Amur leopard. In between sets, find inspiration from the cheetahs and run! Four classes will be offered this year:

v  Saturday, August 18, 8 – 10 a.m.

v  Thursday, September 20, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
