What’s your favorite way to get exercise? Asked at Smith’s in Edgewood.





Trudy Purpura, Edgewood

A cardio workout. I guess you could say the stair climber.









Karisa Mullen, Edgewood

My favorite way is to exercise with my friends at church. Each one of them is an expert in something so we get to change it up.








Bill Owen, Edgewood

Walking, hiking and all that. Not much for push-ups and sit-ups.










Stephanie Sifford, Edgewood

That would be kickboxing, probably.








Mike Sifford, Edgewood

My favorite is going with my kids and playing sports.
