Did you know that Lake Johnson has a Fitness Trail? This fitness trail is different than others. The QR Fit Trail is a series of signs along an approximate 1.5-mile trail. The signs have QR codes that link to different exercises videos at each sign. The video demonstrates the exercise you can do without any equipment. You can get outside enjoy the woods and get fit at the same time.  You can choose your type of work out and your experience level to provide a customized experience.  The videos change weekly so you can enjoy the QR fit trail year-round.
