With winter in full force in Durango, many of us locals are trying to stay in shape and keep active to uphold our New Year’s Resolutions. Yet how does a person do that with snow outside? Of course, there are a ton of outdoor exercise options available, but we are also fortunate to have some state-of-the-art facilities that cater to indoor recreation. Summer and winter alike, these places stay busy and have options for everyone.
The Durango Community Recreation Center offers a variety of ways to exercise. The cardio workout equipment and indoor track provide the ability to utilize cardio equipment indoors, and the weight options—free weights and pin-loaded weight equipment—allow weight lifting exercises. Various instructor-led classes and a large gymnasium capable of basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer, and more allow the benefits of exercise coupled with group experiences. A climbing wall allows climbers to stay in shape no matter the season! Personal trainers are also available. In addition, the Rec Center is home to aquatics: leisure swimming and lap swimming are available. The Community Rec Center also offers a fair amount of “fun” activities as well: a water play area for kids, water slide, birthday parties, and racquetball are among the options available. Here’s the website for information: http://www.durangogov.org/index.aspx?NID=515
The Durango Sports Club is a private sports club in Durango, and offers weights, cardio equipment, and fitness classes, as well as a variety of fitness classes, personal training, and massage therapy. They also have a nutritionist available. Many locals utilize the Durango Sports Club due to their smaller size and the availability of equipment.

Fitness Solutions 24/7 is yet another Durango indoor fitness option. As their name insinuates, they are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. They offer a variety of equipment, including free weights, upper and lower body machines, and cardio equipment. There is also a large functional room with a variety of tools to utilize for exercise. In addition, Fitness Solutions also offers personal training, group classes, and nutrition guidance and help.
Each of these indoor options provide the opportunity for a variety of exercise platforms; generally, residents find that one of them is a better “fit” than another, so it is nice to have options and choices when deciding where to exercise. Prices and features vary, so check them out to see which you like best. Without a doubt, for a small town, Durango is full of opportunities to stay in shape!
