Fresh Fitness Ideas in Reno Tahoe
Now that spring has definitely sprung in Reno Tahoe, I’m ready for some fresh fitness ideas! I mean who doesn’t love the treadmill (Anyone? No? Moving on…) but sometimes we need some exercise that doesn’t feel like exercise. Now we already know Reno Tahoe has endless hiking, biking, and activities we already know and love (and treadmills!), but here are a few gems that are worth checking out if you haven’t already.
Marina PaddleFit is a family-owned fitness studio at the Sparks Marina where they teach small group fitness classes inside and on the water. All of their classes focus on core strength, balance and functional fun fitness for all ages. Best part: they also have paddleboards, kayaks & a canoe for rent!

Rancho Red Rock has been putting people and horses together since 1975! All horseback riding lessons are private and can be anything from a walk around the ranch, introducing you to all the horses, to grooming, tacking up, a gentle beginner lesson or a ride out in the valley or hours in the hills. If you don’t think horseback riding counts as fitness, you’ve probably never tried getting in the saddle. Riding can be a great way to strengthen your back and core as well as give you some balance and flexibility. Yee-haw!

No one is suggesting you run away with the circus, but you can certainly check out the Le Cirque Vagabond circus training program. Their instructors boast professional backgrounds, competitive experience, and six competitive titles. Their on-going classes train you in aerial silks, aerial ballet, straps, Chinese pole, pole dance and balancing, trained by producer and director Ben Pierson. Aerial silks and pole class consists of break falls, dance steps, conditioning and technique. Come in and become a class act or burn those calories. They even have private lessons available for pole, balancing and silks.

Maybe you’re wanting a Game of Thrones inspired workout? Check out the Reno Silver Blade Fencing Club! As you might have guessed, fencing with skill and confidence requires time, training, and personal application. Fencing is exceptional, however, in that young and old can learn, train, and enjoy fencing together. So grab the whole family and “Stick them with the pointy end.”

You’ve probably seen it while driving past the Reno Arch. The massive climbing wall that goes up forever… but have you actually tried it? Yes your arms will be spaghetti the next day, but it’s totally worth it. They’ve built everything to accommodate everyone in the family, from first-timers to the most experienced climbers. And if climbing is not your passion, check out their slackline or their yoga and bootcamp classes!
Bucket list check! Back-bend over #RenoTahoe via the highest rock climbing wall in the world! @BasecampReno which aligns along the new @WhitneyPeakHotel is just over the Reno sign! I am having so much fun at the Whitney Hotel that I am staying another night in Reno! Sure, the earthy chic boutique hotel design is gorgeous — the first I have seen that frames and hangs @instagram art on the walls; the concert venue, organic, locally farmed food, craft beers, etc are on point; but what I love most is that everything to the bed linens is made from sustainable, recyclable products. Base Camp Reno is a part of the Whitney Hotel to promote casual elegance and the city’s active lifestyle. I probably should have anticipated this, Reno being the closest major city to Burning Man — but I had no idea. Love it here!
