After Restaurant Week, Time To Get Fit

Restaurant Week — the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce’s promotion of all things culinary — ends Sunday.

If you think the Chamber will celebrate the successful event with a cocktail or two, think again.

The next day — Monday, October 19 — they’ll sponsor Fitness Week.

It’s “an opportunity to learn about and set new health and wellness goals, and for participating businesses to help you achieve them.”

Aka, “work those pounds off, gluttons.”

Companies will offer free and discounted classes and memberships. There are seminars and a fair too.

Plus — why not go whole hog? — public exercise sessions.

JoyRide is one of the participants in the upcoming Fitness Week.

  1. This is a new event I am trying for the Chamber of Commerce. Come on out Monday Oct 19, 7pm, at the Westport Library and meet the still growing list of participants. They will be there with information, to answer questions and to offer free or discounted classes or memberships. The right place might be there for you. Give it a shot.

    See you Monday night.
