Ways to Unwind: Exercise

As non-profit professionals, it’s important we go into work everyday with a clear head to work towards our organizations missions. Whether your go-to is exercise, a creative outlet or something in between - there’s plenty of ways to incorporate some self-care in the city. This blog series will highlight some of the best ways to enjoy some self care in Cleveland.

Jump into some fun after work and burn some calories while you’re at it! There are a variety of trampoline workout classes in and around Cleveland, including SkyZone’s SkyFit classes, Zumba at GetAir, and the bungee and Kangaroo jump classes at Innovative Fit Cle.

Tough day in the office? Channel those frustrations into a punching bag and leave it all on the mats. Cleveland has plenty of boxing and kickboxing options, including the 30-minute kickboxing fitness at 9Round, boxing and MMA classes at TITLE Boxing Club, and the self-defense fitness classes at Fight Fit.


Slow down and center yourself with some yoga. While yoga has ancient roots, plenty of Cleveland studios have put a modern twist on the practice. Balance & Brews hosts yoga events around the city that includes a full pour with each class. Align your chakras at Yoga Strong Studios, which offers a variety of workshops (some even include massage!) The Balancing Flamingo Yoga Studio is nestled inside a wine shop, break a sweat then sip on some wines.

Climb up to 6,000 feet at Rise Nation in Cleveland's Warehouse District. Hop on your VersaClimber and enjoy a high intensity workout. Would you rather feel like you're sailing than climbing? Visit The Foundry's fitness rowing classes. 

Not sure what you're in the mood for, but know that you need to move? The Movement Factory has you covered - with everything from yoga to ballet and barre classes.

    I thought I knew where the cool workouts in Cleveland were but I was wrong! The bungee and Kangaroo jump classes are definitely new to me, can’t wait to try it out. Thanks for all the good recommendations.
