Milwaukee, how we love and hate your unpredictable weather. On the days that are warm however, we love to share your paths with rollerblades, bikes, and feet.
In the Milwaukee area, both residents and employers have become increasingly focused on wellness and promoting healthy lifestyles. The Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce (MMAC), has helped Milwaukee to become the largest city in the nation to earn the coveted Well City USA silver-level designation. This means that 30% of the workforce of Milwaukee can access formal wellness programs.
Recently the downtown area installed a bike sharing program called “Bublr Bikes”. This organization has launched bike stations throughout Milwaukee and the surrounding suburbs. This allows you to rent out a bike at your own leisure and peddle around the city of Milwaukee!
Another way to get fit is joining a fitness center. The Wisconsin Athletic Club (WAC) has seven locations in the Milwaukee area and their eighth site will be opening this summer. The YMCA is another large contributor in promoting an active lifestyle. The nine centers in the Metropolitan Milwaukee support wellness programs, personal training, swimming lessons, and countless activities for individuals and families.
Milwaukee is full of opportunities to get active like the Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash, Storm the Bastille, Brewers Mini Marathon and much more. Check out this link to find upcoming fitness events in Milwaukee to participate in!
