The summer installment of the King County Library System’s Start to Fitness programs has begun. 

This is a series of FREE talks and classes, encouraging folks to take steps toward a stronger, healthier community. Classes include cycling, walking, dance, yoga, meditation, backpacking, rowing, etc. See the list below for other cycling-related courses, or CLICK HERE to view the full range of courses. Many of them are being offered in Burien or neighboring locations.

There are three programs locally that WABI enthusiasts might like to know about, especially.

Please see the descriptions below for the following:

Seattle-StairsSeattle Stairway Walks

Meet Cathy and Jake Jaramillo, authors of Seattle Stairway Walks, the only guidebook to stairway walks in Seattle. Learn how to explore Seattle neighborhoods in a new way. Stairway walks are great for people of all ages who want to get outside, exercise and explore! (This will not be a stairway walk, but rather a time to chat with Cathy and Jake about the stairways in the region.)

Burien’s Eagle Landing Park’s staircase is included in their book, and has been featured as one of the early springtime Stairway Walks in the region for the last two years.
