Free outdoor fitness classes return to Cobb this spring

Remember that New Year’s resolution? You know, the one to “do better this time” and “lose a few pounds” this year.

We’re sure you’re doing great, but just in case you needed some help, the city of Kennesaw has your back.

The city announced Monday that it is offering nine free outdoor workouts ranging from tai chi to a “boot camp” session.

Which had more visits in 2016? Kennesaw Mountain or the White House?

Join the workouts at Swift-Cantrell Park, 3140 Old 41 Highway NW, which is the city’s largest park. Soon it’ll have a splash pad, too.
