Health Living | A New Twist on Your Workout Regimen

By Judy Piersall

Recently, I saw an ad in a magazine for a “new” fitness workout: 20 minutes of high intensity, low impact trampoline training. I had to laugh to myself because I’ve been jumping on a trampoline for years, so it wasn’t new to me at all.

Granted, I don’t do any fancy workouts on my […]

Be Our Guest | Realtors Supporting Local Business

Back to the Bayard House
