With 300 days of sunshine and more than 5,000 acres of urban parks, there’s no better place for an outdoor workout than in Denver, where you’ll find something for every skill level and athletic ability. Here are some of the best outdoor workout classes in the city.

Scott’s Denver Boot Camp

Gym, Park

Scott’s Denver Boot Camp is a series of classes run by Scott Harwood, a certified trainer and fitness instructor with more than a decade of experience. Although Harwood owns and operates his full-service gym, you can also sign up for the Wash Park Boot Camp in beautiful Washington Park. These year-round outdoor boot camps include cardio, core and ab work, and weight training. Best of all, you’ll spend an hour in one of the prettiest parks in Denver.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
