Adults are enjoying recess again

By Kristin Beerman | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Recess is making a comeback among adults. A gym in Dallas is using recess fun to make workouts more interesting. They're getting grown people to work up a sweat with elementary school activities like follow the leader, dodge ball, Simon says and jump rope.

"Oh my gosh, it's a little bit of everything. Last week we did hopscotch and ran Indian sprints.  It's a nice break from the stair master or the elliptical," said Stefanie Samarripa, a recess workout participant.

Another old favorite is red light, green light, but unlike the recess you remember that was too short, maybe just 20 minutes, but this one lasts an hour and you have to pay for it.
