How Much Do Grand Rapids Fitness Classes Cost?

While Grand Rapids does offer free fitness classes in the summer, the recently announced fall 2022 classes are not free - but still a pretty great deal!

Each class costs $40 and meets once a week for approximately 8 weeks - so you're paying about $5 per class.

The City of Grand Rapids is also offering youth and adult swim lessons this fall for $42.
