Free Summit Outdoor Group Fitness

While the weather is nice in August, why not get exercise outside? Take advantage of the Summit on the Park’s free outdoor group fitness classes! Join us at Heritage Park for classes ranging from Yoga to High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT). Remember to please bring water and a towel or mat.  All of these sessions will be weather permitting. For a complete schedule of classes, visit or watch our Facebook page for updates!

NEW! Fall Group Fitness Classes
Are you ready to change up your workout routine? Coming this Fall, the Summit will be offering new registered classes such as: TRX Fit, Barre, and Lifting Ladies! Take your workout to the next level and experience new and exciting ways to strengthen and tone your muscles.

Summit Swimming Lesson Information

As of September 10, 2017, the Summit on the Park Aquatic Center will no longer be offering Ongoing Swim Lessons.  All other classes will continue as normally scheduled. Please note that your last 
Ongoing Swim Lesson payment will be collected in August 2017. 

This programming change will allow Summit staff to more effectively meet the overwhelming demand for Session Based classes, which are offered every session and will certainly be able to continue to 
meet the needs of your swimmer.  Moving forward, this will require registration for each session, which can easily be accomplished online at or in person at the Summit on the Park front desk.

In an effort to easily transition your swimmer into these Session Based Programs, we would like to offer you an exclusive opportunity to register them for the swim sessions of your choice before anyone else, including Summit members! 

Beginning August 9 through August 15, 2 p.m., please contact Brad Chiasson, Aquatic Specialist, by calling 734/394-5467 to register for any or all of the session based Early Bird discounted prices.
