“Exercise? I thought you said extra fries!”

I recently saw this phrase posted at a fast-food restaurant and it made me chuckle. Hope it makes you smile too. And, if you did get those extra fries and are looking for an opportunity to work off those calories, consider joining our fun exercise class on Monday and Thursday mornings. We have a great group of participants with varied abilities who make exercise a fun thing! All are welcome! See the details below.
