Did you know that working out is a natural way to fight depression? That includes seasonal-darkness-induced depression — I'm talking to you, Rochester. In related news, alcohol is a depressant. If your happy hour could use a little more glee, why not give it a healthy jump start? On Friday, February 8, join professional fitness trainer Anne Osovski as she leads a group through her popular iPhone workout app "Workout in a Bag," a fun calorie-burning exercise routine. The event, which takes place 6-8 p.m. at F.I.T. (465 W. Commercial St., East Rochester), will include heart-pumping music and lots of healthy surprises.
The group workout begins at 6:15 p.m. The workout will be followed by a fitness after-party with nutritious refreshments, chair massages, healthy-cooking demos, raffle prizes, and giveaways. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door, with 100 percent of proceeds benefitting the Ad Council of Rochester and Bivona Child Advocacy's Campaign to End Child Sexual Abuse.
