    Class leader Elizabeth Kovar, complete with leg warmers, does an exercise with her pumpkin Tuesday night at the Lynnwood Recreation Center.

Elizabeth Kovar on Tuesday led one in a series of fitness classes at the Lynnwood Recreation Center that use pumpkins' weight to provide resistance.
Kovar, a fitness instructor, was considering holding a special class for Halloween and drinking a cup of coffee at a supermarket when inspiration struck.
"I turned around and saw this big bin of pumpkins and said, 'Oh my God, that's just like a medicine ball!'" She grabbed a pumpkin and started coming up with the movements right there.
