Joplin kids get active

JOPLIN, Mo. – Saturday’s dreary weather didn’t stop Joplin kids from getting active, and they were able to do it indoors over at Every BODY Fitness.

It was all part of the gym’s Fall into Fitness Kids Day event, and besides games, there was also face painting, arts and crafts, and more!

Organizers say that keeping kids active is especially important around this time of year.

“Our goal here is just to get kids active. Statistics prove that kids who are active are 50% less likely to get the flu,” said Whitney Jones with Every BODY Fitness.

Gym staff says that all gym space and equipment are disinfected on a regular basis.
