Halecrest Family Park Date April 27th

On the morning of April 27th, I woke up early to go for a hike at Peter’s Canyon. As I drove back home, I thought about the event I signed up to volunteer. A Family Event at Halecrest Park in Costa Mesa is where I would soon be. Never imagining, or even considering, this day would make a permanent change to my lifestyle.  At my arrival to Halecrest Park, Arden greeted me and handed me a Volunteer shirt. I was clued-in to the day’s events and I went on my way to help set up. There were different areas where participants would engage in activities. A play parachute, dancing chairs, yoga, the tennis courts (where we wrote our goals in chalk), a cooking class set, and the sponsors Fresh & Easy and KIND with surprise gifts for a raffle. The entire day was filled with laughter and music! We all worked out, not even realizing we were, because we were having so much FUN!

I had already started to make a few changes to my life. I had already made the decision to eat healthier and exercise, but with the help from Infused Fitness instructors I received tools to get there. I only had an idea of what to do, but I did not know how to do it. After Sunday, April 27th, my life took a special turn! I left with a wonderful experience, but most importantly, I left with more knowledge and skills! I am on my way to building the muscles I want, and I’m very thankful for the opportunity I was given that day to help out. I am looking forward to many more!
