Locals to exercise for good cause


NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (WKTV) - The Body by Design Group Fitness Studio will dedicate its fitness classes to National Lung Cancer Awareness Month, Sunday.

Three separate classes will be held throughout the day, with the proceeds going to the family of Eleanor Visalli, a local woman battling a rare form of lung cancer.

Not only are the classes meant to raise funds, but also awareness as well.

"What most people don't know is that lung cancer, there are very common symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, fatigue, and weight loss," said Brittany Venezio, fitness instructor at Body by Design. "So just remembering those symptoms, see a doctor if you are experiencing any of those."

The studio will be providing a Zumba kids' class, a Cardiodance class and Piloxing, a pilates and boxing mix.

Each class will last for an hour, and are requesting donations of $15 per person, per class.
