Joliet, IL — The Joliet Slammers presented by ATI Physical Therapy is teaming up with the Greater Joliet Area YMCA this summer to host free fitness classes for the community at Joliet Route 66 Stadium.

Beginning on June 4 and running through August 12, Zumba classes will be held at the stadium every Monday morning from 9-10 a.m. Gates will open to the public at 8:30 a.m. Classes are free and open to the community.

“With the addition of turf, we are looking forward to being able to host more events like this that are open to the community,” Joliet Slammers General Manager Heather Mills said. “This is just the first new event of many, with the new opportunities the turf brings.”

As one of the nation’s leading nonprofit charities, the YMCA is committed to strengthening local communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Through its financial assistance and scholarship program, the Greater Joliet Area YMCA works to fulfill its mission of ensuring that its programs are available to everyone and no one is turned away due to the inability to pay.
