Take in the beauty of our newest exhibit space, Snow Leopard Pass. You may catch a glimpse of one of the most elusive and graceful members of the animal kingdom.
Boot camp is a high intensity interval training style that will use body weight, free weights, and other equipment to raise your heart rate, burn fat, and tone up.
This wildly unique circuit through the different exhibits of our Zoo will take you on a literal fitness journey around the world!
Join the party and dance yourself fit! Designed with interval training in mind, our unique Zumba classes combine simple dance moves set to a combination of fast and slow beats to give you a complete cardio and aerobic workout. These fun workouts focus on moving to the beat and are perfect for beginners and all fitness levels. No dance experience (or rhythm!) is required!
Join us in the arctic inspired town of Glacier Run where you may see seals or sea lions splashing about and could even see a grizzly or polar bear wandering about the town.
Using a combination of poses inspired by ballet, yoga, and Pilates we focus on isometric strength training (holding your body still while focusing on working a select group of muscles) and combine them with sets of high rep range-of-motion movements to give you a workout that will help tone your body.
Enjoy the beautiful African vista as you gaze across our giraffe yard where you may even see a lion in the distance or even a rhino nearby.
