Sloan’s Lake in Denver
This is by far my favorite free outdoor workout spot in Denver! The view of the mountains from the east side of the lake is amazing and the view of downtown Denver at sunrise really can’t be beat.
At just over 2.5 miles around, Sloan’s Lake is a great spot to train for a 5K. In fact, several are held at the lake every year! When I jog around the lake, I like to break up my cardio with strength training by stopping to do pushups at the benches near the path.
I love that Sloan’s Lake is an inviting workout spot for those who might not be comfortable in a traditional gym setting. The whole park is dog friendly and stroller friendly. Tennis courts and playgrounds on both the north and south sides of the lake mean you can get a workout in and entertain the kiddos all at once.
Speaking of tennis courts, I hold cardio and core classes at the courts on the south side of the lake several mornings a week! I’m offering my class at a discount for a limited time, so if Sloan’s Lake sounds like your kind of place, sign up now by clicking here!
Washington Park in Denver
Designated as one of the “Great Public Spaces in America,” Wash Park as we Coloradans call it is another one of my favorite free outdoor workout spots in Denver.
With a lake, beautiful gardens, a rec center, and lots of hiking trails; you’ll never run out of physical activities to do in Wash Park. Be on the lookout for lots of fun and casual group sports like volleyball that start up in the spring!
Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison
Red Rocks isn’t just a place to watch a killer concert—it’s also a place to get a killer workout!
Just a little bit off the beaten path near the rustic towns of Golden and Morrison, Red Rocks is easily one of the best free outdoor workout spots near Denver.
Getting a cardio workout doesn’t get much simpler, or harder, than running up the long flights of stairs at Red Rocks. To complete your full-body workout, try doing some lunges and pushups up on the benches in the seating area.
Your heart and your booty will certainly thank you after a workout at scenic Red Rocks. Don’t forget to stop and take a sweaty selfie!
