MARYSVILLE — In attempt to create a healthier community, the Marysville Parks and Recreation devised Free Fit Saturday, where members get to see a different form of exercise each week.
It had its first go July 11, where Journey Fitness hosted an hour-long workout circuit at 9 a.m.
Aaron Smith decided to take time out of his Saturday to not only exercise but to get acquainted with his new town.
“My family actually moved here from Alaska last week and we were just trying to meet new people and keep exercising,” Smith said. “I feel like we get stuck in the same routine and we mixed it up with that exercise routine.”
In an attempt into creating a healthier community, parks and recreation coordinator, Doug Buell, said that this is a way of showing Marysville’s strong support of Initiative 5210, which promotes healthy lifestyle choices of community members.
“We decided to do this in partnership with our business community,” Buell said. “It’s a good way for them to get exposure.”
“The best part is its free,” Buell said. “A lot of people can’t afford gym memberships.”
Free Fit Saturday will continue through Aug 15.
