An Early Bird Group Fitness Event will be held at both the Mattoon Area Family and Neal Center YMCA locations from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Nov. 24. The hosts encourage the public to attend the free event to burn calories off before celebrating Thanksgiving later in the day. Activities include group fitness classes and youth and adult pick-up sports at both locations. The Wellness Centers and the Mattoon pool also will be open to members. Reservations are encouraged and can be made through the Mattoon Area Family YMCA app.

In addition, the Neal Center YMCA is hosting a Dry Tri event at 1 p.m. on Nov. 26. The event is marketed as the perfect competition for both first-time and experienced triathletes who are training for professional competitions. The Dry Tri gets its name from allowing participants to complete a triathlon without jumping in a pool. The price of admission is $30.
