Silicon Valley fitness: new 24 Hour Fitness opens, West Valley Senior Walk April 15, Big Bunny Fun Run 2011 and more

I love all the things that go on in Silicon Valley that allow for people to get out and get active.  The fact that 24 Hour Fitness is opening a new 45,000 square foot facility in Sunnyvale is interesting.  The trend seems to be toward niche fitness but 24 Hour Fitness is all about big, so there is obviously still a lot of room in the "facility" category.

The 6th Annual West Valley Senior Walk (I suspect the West Valley name is a hold over from when the event was started - it's now Westfield Valley Fair) is a nice event, inside the mall, free breakfast, a couple of local councilmembers, and about 80 companies/non-profits all gathered from 8:30 to 10:30 in the morning.  I stopped by a couple of years back by accident and found it to be friendly and informative.

And of course, one of my top favorite events - the Big Bunny Fun Run is back in Cupertino.  I just love that a few blocks away from one of the world's most popular companies (Apple) 5 year olds can still have a good time walking a mile with a big bunny.

So, check out the stories - your visits are always appreciated.

Here's a look at some of the articles published this week on San Jose Fitness Examiner:
