RECenters, Fairfax County Park Authority


Zumba Class

Fitness today for the best tomorrow! With pools, exercise and dance classes, weight rooms, personal trainers, sports, courts and trails, parks have active-life options for everyone. Visit your favorite RECenter to dance and lift your way to stronger bones, more muscles and fewer pounds.

Take advantage of the opportunities in your parks for getting into great shape. The Park Authority's RECenters offer a host of fitness options -- weight rooms, pools, drop-in exercise classes and racquetball, tennis and basketball courts. Take a vacation from unhealthy habits and add a couple of exercise and fitness days to your weekly routine. Multi-visit passes make regular RECenter membership affordable, and expert instructors and personal trainers can provide the guidance needed to reach your goals safely and effectively. RECenters offer FitLinxx -- a high-tech computer system that helps you to monitor your progress and achieve your fitness goals. With a RECenter membership pass, your FitLinxx individualized workout program is free.

Walking is another route to good health and fitness. Plus it's free, it takes no special equipment or skill and the benefits are huge. They include weight management, blood pressure control, decreased risk of heart attack, stroke, breast cancer and type-2 diabetes, protection against hip fracture, stronger muscles, bones and joints and improved sleep. Walking also can boost "good" cholesterol, avoid the need for gallstone surgery, lower stress levels, prevent depression, colon cancer and osteoporosis, lengthen lifespan and more. If a daily fitness walk could be contained in a pill, it would likely be the world's most popular prescription.

Take a walk in the park. There's no better place to step out and get moving. Challenge yourself and take the Cross County Trail as your summer project. This 40-mile ribbon through the heart of Fairfax County extends from Lorton in the south to Great Falls in the north, passing through some of the county's most beautiful natural areas. Or try the trails in your favorite park. From Burke Lake's 4.7 mile lakeside loop to Riverbend's Potomac Gorge Trail to the interpretative trail with boardwalk and observation platforms at Huntley Meadows, parks have paths made for walking.

Stop by or call your local RECenter for more information on purchasing a membership for yourself, friends or family. Or visit Passes Online to sign up and purchase a pass via the web.

There is an admission charge to all RECenters. Proof of Fairfax County residency entitles visitors to a discounted admission rate. All racquetball court use requires advanced reservations and can be made by calling the individual recreation center. An additional hourly court charge is required for racquetball depending upon the day and time of play.

High School Swim and Dive Teams
Fairfax County’s high school swim and dive teams will be using RECenter pools from mid-November to mid-February. In general, the pools are used Monday-Thursday, 3pm-5:30pm for practice. Starting December 3, pools also will be closed Fridays, 4:30pm-10pm, for meets. Saturday, December 18, is reserved for a meet, and make-up dates and district meets will be held Saturday evenings in January as well. Pools are closed to the public during practices and meets. Specific dates and times will be posted at each RECenter.
