Did you make a New Year’s resolution to be more active this year? One of the best ways to reach your fitness goals is to sign up for fitness events. Winter brings cold weather to Boise and the Treasure Valley, which means fewer outdoor fitness events. But there are still a few ways you can get moving this month, and a few of them are inside. Here’s a list of events to help you plan.
