    Although spring is arriving to Norwalk, that doesn’t always mean the weather is going to behave as such. Rain, sleet, snow, and general chilliness sometimes put a damper on our motivation to indulge in some fitness. The good news is that you don’t need Mother Nature to cooperate to lead a healthy and active lifestyle at The Waypointe! That is because in addition to our very own state-of-the-art fitness center, we are surrounded by some of the best indoor fitness activities in the entire state, including yoga, mixed martial arts, Zumba®, and taekwon-do. Here are four of the best places to get fit indoors that are just minutes from your luxury home at The Waypointe.
