Fat Chance 

The YMCA resolves to keep you slim in '07.

The YMCA of Greater Cleveland’s annual fat-bustin’ blowout at Tower City features activities, programs, and displays designed to keep participants in shape throughout next year. “This is our own grassroots effort to help make the community healthier and fit in spirit, mind, and body,” says spokeswoman Audra Kessler. “This is our way of saying, 'Let’s get serious about our health in 2007.'”

The challenge starts at 10:30 this morning with a half-hour fitness walk through Tower City. Afterward, experts offer tips and perform health screenings. Whether you go for the group cycling, kids activities, or performance by hip-hop and ballet dance troupes, you can’t lose because it’s free. “So many people start a fitness routine or diet and yo-yo back and forth,” says Kessler. “We’re here to help you change that behavior and build a healthy habit.”
Fri., Dec. 29, 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m.
