Fitness Fever Hits Foster, Battles Drinking for Pastime of Choice in the ‘Hood

There’s some serious fitness going on at the convergence of Center Street and Foster.  Sorry, Smokey’s, you’re outnumbered.  You, too, Slingshot.

KajukenboFoster Fitness.  Capoeira Angola Palmares of FoPo.  Unaffiliated MMA.  Zumba. Kajukenbo.  All within a stone’s throw.

Sheesh!

Ok, let me repeat:

– Foster Fitness Gym
– Capoeira at Foster Fitness
– Mixed Martial Arts at the New Day Theater
– Zumba at the New Day Theater
– and now, Kajukembo at the New Day Theater

Remember when Foster was just bars and tire shops?  That was before the pot dispensaries moved in and classed things up a bit.  Now we’re getting all fit and stuff.

    Um, late pass issued. David/Esquilo has been teaching at Foster Fitness for years and New Day has had classes for years as well. My daughter took Palmares classes when she was little.

    • Indeed. Some have been around for a long time. New MMA and Kajukembo, though. And Zumba’s fairly new, as well.

      More a statement of the growing cluster of fitness, rather than what’s new.

    what about the awesome place Apex Bodyworks above the Use It Again thrift store? I think they’ve been there about 6 months or so.
