RETURN OF ZUMBA: Zumba class will be held Tuesday & Thursday week of March 4, 2-13

We know it can be difficult to motivate yourself to come into the gym and workout. Research indicates that people are more motivated to workout when they have a friendly face to encourage them, social support to break them away from the office while maybe even providing some fun (Jocularity!)  The JFKFFC is initiating a new program that will allow you to bring/invite your friend or co-worker with you while introducing him/her to our/your facility. Ask staff for details, or visit our website for rules/regulations. http://jfkffc.com/index.php?option=com_docman&Itemid=12&limitstart=5
