Thrifty Thursday - Great exercise deals to get your body moving
PADUCAH - It's time to get that body moving just in time for summer, and we've got some great ways to do it cheap!
This Thrifty Thursday we focused on community exercise programs where you get a great work-out, but you don't have to pay out a lot of cash.
Marissa and Johnette participated in the community Zumba class which meets every Tuesday and Thursday at 4 p.m. and 5:15 p.m. at the old Cooper-Whiteside gym on South 6th St. in Paducah.
The class is led by certified zumba instructors Ayrie Crump and Clarissa White and only costs $1 or a canned good. The money and the food goes to the local food bank.
Also, the new Paducah Rec Center on MLK Drive has a brand new basketball court, yoga classes, belly dancing, league sports, etc. Your family can go to all the classes for just $5 for an entire year.
And if your joints can't stand it, you can Zumba in the water. Brooks Pool at Broadway United Methodist Church in Paducah has aquatic Zumba on Thursdays at 6 p.m. and Sundays at 5:15 p.m., and it only costs $2 or a canned good.
Also, read our question of the day post on Facebook for more ideas; lots of folks talking about the great programs in their area.
