Oh, those Wildwood days filled with beaches and boardwalk—and probably a fair amount of pizza and beer. But your annual shore vacation doesn’t have to spell disaster. The Wildwood Crest Recreation Department offers plenty of opportunities to stay fit, including daily morning-fitness classes—from pilates to cardio kickboxing—at Beach Pier at Heather Road. The $5 classes run through August 21st.

If you prefer to sleep in, check out the free outdoor yoga sessions held at 7:30 p.m. every Tuesday and Thursday through August 18th at Sunset Lake. Or if you’re looking for more of a challenge, enter the Wildwood Crest 5K Beach Run on August 6th to stay in race shape and keep your competitive edge.
