You can still keep active - at BFR. The action is only one week old and lots of it is free. A printer-friendly attachment at the bottom of this story shows all the program options.
BFR announced its 2012 winter "Keeping Active" programs, which run now to Feb. 25, according to Carole Enneking, director.
"Be inspired or inspire someone you care about to become more active this winter," she said. "Try out free exercise classes, add walking for exercise, and more more about healthy eating and fitness."
Most programs are free. During the "Keeping Active" special offer BFR offers demonstrations on special topics, free walking days, senior events, events for toddlers and families, youth events, fitness classes and adult recreation.
In addition, several special events are planned. Contact BFR for details.
