Hiking in Catalina State Park, Oro Valley, Arizona

For Oro Valley residents who are passionate about health and fitness, our sunny Southern Arizona weather makes it easy to stay fit all year long. Outdoor exercise is fun with world-class golf, amazing hiking trails, mountain biking, and swimming, and we are fortunate to have a great selection of local gyms and indoor exercise opportunities as well.

Enjoy a true desert golf experience when you play a round at Conquistador Golf Course or The Views Golf Club at Oro Valley. Both offer stunning views of the mountains, and even during the summer, an early tee time can help you beat the heat.

If hiking is more your style, check out the eight trails at Catalina State Park. Trails vary in length and difficulty, so there is something for everyone to enjoy and the views of the Catalinas are truly breathtaking. Mountain biking is also allowed on some trails, and you can even ride horseback at Catalina to explore the area in a few different ways. The Linda Vista Trail is popular with hikers, and Canyon Del Oro River Trail is a local favorite for runners.

Swimming is the best way to stay cool and exercise when you live in the desert. The Oro Valley Aquatic Center offers affordable monthly and annual memberships. With an Olympic pool for lap swimmers and family-friendly amenities like the recreation pool, waterslide, diving boards, and splash pad, it’s easy to stay active even on the hottest summer days.

The Oro Valley Community and Recreation Center offers indoor fitness classes, cardio and strength equipment, and affordable membership options. With pickleball, racquetball, and tennis courts available, you can have fun, enjoy some friendly competition and stay fit.

Gyms in Oro Valley include LA Fitness, Planet Fitness, and Anytime Fitness, and for a functional full-body workout, you can try F45. If a neighborhood gym is more your style, Block Fitness offers a curated workout experience and group exercise classes. With so many options, you can explore and find your ideal gym in town.

Check out our local yoga and pilates studios for the perfect blend of mind and whole-body wellness. Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned pro, Swan Pilates and Club Pilates offer a range of classes, and for yoga classes and strength training, try Iron Crane Yoga.

Health is wealth, and our Oro Valley community has many resources and opportunities. You can find your perfect fit, prioritize your health and have fun doing it.
