Steps & Reps Mercer Island
Join the Mercer Island community for the 4th Annual Steps & Reps Family Sweat Session, an outdoor workout held in Mercerdale Park on Sunday, July 29, starting at 8:45 am.

This high energy, one-hour workout (designed for all ages and fitness levels) will be lead by professional trainers from MI Athletic Club and Renew Fitness to the live beats of DJ Marc Rousso. It will consist of a brisk walk/run up and down the Mercerdale Park stairs and heart-pumping, bootcamp-style exercises on the Mercerdale Park field.

Participants are invited immediately after the workout to a Push Ups, Planks & Pull Ups! Competition on the Mercerdale Park fitness equipment for a chance to win fabulous prizes.

The workout is also a remembrance and celebration of the life of Joey Abramson, a Mercer Island community member and father of four, who was passionate about fitness. The event was created in his honor in 2015.

In fact, you may have noticed a plaque near the stairs that lead from Mercerdale Park up to the First Hill neighborhood. It reads:

“There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs. Honoring the life of Joey Abramson, who lived to run these stairs.”

Your registration also helps support local parks. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Mercer Island Parks & Recreation Department in support of the purchase of a new piece of outdoor fitness equipment for one of our Mercer Island parks. The registration fee is $20/adult and $5/child. Additional donations are greatly appreciated.

This event is co-hosted by Renew Fitness, Mercer Island Athletic Club, and the Mercer Island Parks & Recreation Department.
