I know you’ve wanted to lose those extra pounds and get in shape for the summer, right? So have I! Here’s your chance for us to make it happen! Join “Biggest Loser Memphis!”
“Biggest Loser Memphis” is a great way to get in shape, be healthy and build relationships. Activities include aerobics, line dancing, Zumba and much more. This is a timely opportunity to not only get in shape, but to also make great friends and share in a support system that is out of this world. You will lose weight and get healthy!
So far, I have taken part in the aerobics class. It’s very challenging; however, it’s a lot of fun. Instructor Craig Wright can be a bit of a drill sergeant at times, but he will make sure you reach your goals and stay motivated, and that I am!
After the weigh in, there will be a mass work out session with everyone! This large-scale event takes place on Saturday (March 24) at the National Guard Armory located at 2610 East Holmes Rd. from noon until 2pm. In the meantime, just visit their website at www.blmevents.info.
Come on out and discover determination you never knew you had. See ya there!
The What’s Happening Book Club
I have decided to revamp and re-launch Myron’s Book Club. Instead of it being a featured book segment, it will now be a full-fledged book club…with meetings and everything! The first meeting will be on April 7 at the McAllister’s at Highland and Poplar. It kicks off at 3 p.m. We will be choosing our very first book, so come on by and drop your favorite book title in the suggestion box. This is gonna be a lot of fun. Email me for more information.
At the Bartlett Comedy Spot
You’ve seen him on “Def Comedy Jam” and P Diddy’s “Bad Boys of Comedy” and now you can check out comedian Malik S. at the Bartlett Comedy Spot this weekend for 4 BIG shows at 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. both Friday and Saturday. Admission is $10. Plus, it is hosted by my good friend, Funnyman Prescott! The Bartlett Comedy Spot is located at 5709 Raleigh Lagrange at Sycamore View. Call 901-590-3620 for more details.
Bill Pickett Rodeo
The Bill Pickett Invitational Rodeo takes place on March 31 at 6:30 p.m. at the Agricenter Showplace Arena. The excitement, skills, talent and nerves from the participating cowboys and cowgirls will represent the spirit of the west and the rich heritage of African Americans.
Advance tickets are $12 for children and $21 for adults and are available through all Ticketmaster outlets and ticketmaster.com or by calling (901) 690-0917. For more information, visit www.billpickettrodeo.com.
There you have it. Next week, I’ll share info from the Biggest Loser event as I weigh in for the very first time. I’ll even share what the scale says. Until then, that’s what’s happening!
