Santa Monica: Keep Group Fitness Outside

To be delivered to Santa Monica City Council

Petition Statement

I support group fitness camps and private fitness training in Palisades Park and other parks of Santa Monica. Thank you!
There are currently 1,181 signatures. NEW goal - We need 2,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The Santa Monica Parks and Recreation Committee has voted to ban all group exercise classes (i.e. Stroller Strides, etc.) in Palisades Park (The Bluff) and restrict such business throughout the city. They are bringing the issue to Santa Monica City Hall in January 2013 in order to enforce their recommendation. The majority of these group fitness camps DO carry liability insurance and they DO pay city taxes and business license fees, as well as create revenue for the small business surrounding the area (coffee shops, restaurants, apparel, farmer's market, etc.). More importantly, they are promoting a healthy lifestyle (some camps even offer free fitness days to give back to the community). If you DO NOT support the ban on group fitness in Palisades Park & other ares of Santa Monica, please let the City Council know by signing this petition. Thank You!
