January is always the busiest time of the year for gyms—you might even call it the fitness version of Black Friday. After a holiday season of eating, drinking, and being merry many gyms see their membership double each January. Regardless of all that enthusiasm, gym attendance is usually back to normal by mid-February. But in Fairfield Harbour, you’ve got a myriad of exercise choices that are all within the community and most are free. Classes are led by community volunteers. How is that for not having an excuse? So grab your BFF or neighbor and get to it! Exercising with a buddy encourages you to go and it is much more fun!
