Staying Fit This Spring: Events and Ideas for a Healthy Body

Written by Sharon Lindell  |  24. March 2014

Many Long Islanders are enjoying the warmer weather that we have been having these past few days. Some of us are probably discovering some extra weight we might have put on over the summer. There is nothing to be ashamed of, we had to keep ourselves warm for the winter!

So, now that is it getting nicer outside, we are more likely to be willing to get into shape. Some people get their motivation by going to a gym, but sometimes gyms are not for everyone. Whether it is the cost or the stigma, not everyone is a gym person. Luckily, there are local events and outdoor activities.

Here are just a few local events in our events calendar. These events are for the young and old, so give one of them a try!
