Albany - - People in an East Albany neighborhood now have a new place to get into shape.

Thursday was the grand opening of the Jackson Heights Fitness and Wellness Center on North Jordan Street. It's run by the recreation and parks department and offers workout equipment and staff to help you come up with a personal weight management plan.

City leaders say the community played a big part in making it happen. 

"There have just been a key group of people in the community that have come out and have been instrumental in everything from the selection of the equipment to being interested and excited about this building," says Recreation and Parks Director Suzanne Davis.

The center will offer special classes for seniors, aerobics classes, and a walking club. It's all free.

All you have to do is fill out an application and show your free membership card when you come by.
