Setting aside time for working out in the early days of spring when the weather has (finally) reached at least 50 degrees by noon can be challenging. But exercise is key to an individual's energy, health, and self-confidence. Starting a daily fitness routine now can be regimenting before the summer months begin. Check out these three local events to get you moving within the next week:
