CRANFORD, NJ – Cranford residents milled in and out of “Get Fit Cranford!” all day on Sunday.
The event, held in the municipal fire lot, was organized by Ashley Legg, a volunteer for Cranford Community Connection and owner of Legg Day Fitness.
“It’s such a beautiful day,” Legg said. “It’s been a lot of fun because it’s all about promoting healthy lifestyles and we have a lot of wellness businesses in Cranford that care about activity and eating right, so it’s a great way to bring everyone together under the sunshine.”
The day kicked off with Zumba at 11 a.m. Later, guests participated in yoga, dance, sports and more. Local vendors set up tables and booths to pass out healthy food and materials. Mayor Thomas Hannen, Jr. led seniors in a game of Simon Says before practicing tai chi with Deputy Mayor Ann Dooley.
“The seniors were out here shaking their hips and doing dancercise,” Legg said. “It was just a lot of fun, all of them out here having the time of their lives.”
Legg hopes to make “Get Fit Cranford” an annual event, she said.
“We’re really excited Cranford Community Connections hosted this event,” she said. “We make time to create events like this to get the community out and about and supporting our local businesses. We’re always looking for volunteers”
