Menlo Park: Downtown fitness fest

Another event is joining Menlo Park's roster of downtown festivities: The city is partnering with SBM Fitness to showcase ways to have fun exercising.

On Aug. 13, the sounds of Zumba dancers and runners panting, among others, will echo along Santa Cruz Avenue from 6 to 9 p.m. when Menlo Park hosts its first "family fitness extravaganza."

Fitness is getting one knockdown, when the Peninsula YMCA closes the Page Mill Y on October 1. They claim it needs a lot of upgrading, while I think it is in part because they are loosing members and have done a poor job of marketing and publicizing the facility. The current membership is upset and many will cease exercising. The other nearby Y facilities all lack adequate parking and are already fairly crowded.
