WITH THE SUMMER hiatus past, the calendar is filling up quickly with family activities, back-to-school events, meetings, courses, fairs, festivals, and football and soccer practices and games.

If your calendar hasn't reached overload yet, check out the county Department of Recreation and Parks' fall program guide, which lists classes and courses offered locally and countywide.

Need to burn the fat? Try an aerobics class. The department offers a high-low-impact class at Northeast High School from 6: 30 p.m. to 7: 30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays, or at Lake Shore Elementary School from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays.

Low-impact aerobics classes are offered at Riviera Beach Elementary School from 3: 45 p.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays; at Lake Shore Elementary from 7 p.m. to 8: 15 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays; and at Northeast High School from 6 p.m. to 7: 15 p.m. and 7: 15 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Not into jumping around? Think about the tone-and-firm exercise class offered at Northeast High School from 7: 45 p.m. to 8: 45 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays.
