Great instructors, fun times getting fit
Exercise is supposed to not only be healthy, but fun as well. Returning instructor Karissa Spears of Kurvy Fitness, says she wants people to know working out doesn’t have to be a chore.
“It can be exciting, fun and exhilarating all at the same time. That’s why I love Fitness in the Park! It’s a great opportunity to try new workouts and figure out what format is best for you. Movement, regardless of the intensity, is great for the body and soul!”Karissa Spears of Kurvy Fitness
“Great instructors, a beautiful outdoor setting, and the energy and companionship of others combine to make Fitness in the Park a fun, invigorating, and first-rate investment in your physical and mental health, all for only one hour of your time,” said Kevin Ready, Healthy Huntsville Coordinator.
