ACTIVE

Physical activity is a key ingredient to a healthy and happy life. A neighborhood that provides easy and consistent access to opportunities to get active will naturally be a healthier, happier, and more popular place! Go for a swim at the Crystal Park Sport & Health, take tennis lessons at the Crystal Gateway Sport & Health, grab a bicycle from the Revolution Cycles City Hub or from Capital Bikeshare, enhance your strength with CrossFit South Arlington, hit the trails for a jog, or participate in any number of regularly scheduled ACTIVE events including Monday Morning Yoga with Mind Your Body Oasis (the area's only wellness center that includes Yoga, Pilates, acupuncture, massage, and more), Wednesday Zumba with Sport & Health, Crystal Run and Crystal Ride race challenges!
