In a city as beautiful as Santa Barbara, the idea of hosting various outdoor exercise programs is extremely appealing to fitness instructors. But many of these entrepreneurs are not aware of the fact that the city requires outdoor programs to purchase permits, fitness and training programs included.
Ignorance is bliss, but probably not in this situation. There are far more outdoor fitness classes that do not have permits, than have them, and this is something to be weary of. The safety of participants is being totally exploited when these businesses do not abide by city regulations.
