     This close knit family truly enjoys the four seasons of New Hampshire. Boating, biking, hiking, and snow skiing are how the Downs’ spend their family time.

     Michelle and Adam usually arrive at the gym around 5a.m. to participate in the 5:30 cycling class three times a week and twice a week take Boot camp and Total Body Strength with Liz Littell. The family philosophy is to be active and enjoy maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
