Sacramento is located just east of San Francisco. Sacramento's residents are active and healthy, so there are unlimited fitness opportunities throughout the city. There was once a rush on gold in Sacramento, but now most rushing happens along the American River's 32 miles of paved parkway where runners, walkers, and cyclist keep a lively physical pace. The American River now hosts a half marathon and a 5k. In total Sacramento maintains over 200 parks and public spaces. A city favorite is the jogging center at Southside Park. Joggers have access to a fitness course, swimming pool and clubhouse. If you like competitive fitness, stop by Tahoe Park or McKinley Park and join a league at one of their soccer fields, baseball fields, basketball courts, tennis courts or swimming pools. If you've got money to spend, treat yourself to a stay at the Arden Hills Resort Club and Spa; a wellness resort with many different fitness amenities including a pool, weight room and exercise studios. For more mainstream and less expensive fitness options, look for gym and health club chains like Anytime Fitness - Folsom and 24 Hour Fitness - Sacramento.
