May is fitness month and in celebration Warrior Fitness Center will have its annual Spring Expo on Wednesday, May 9 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This year's theme is Gear Up For Fun. There will be something for everyone to enjoy and all speeds of motion with a variety of health, wellness, fitness, recreation and education vendors onsite.
Outdoor Recreation will have a large display of their available rental equipment, including tents, boats, bags and more. Local restaurants will distribute healthy food samples, the Health and Wellness Center kitchen will host healthy cooking demonstrations throughout the day and a large inflatable golf swing cage will be available for spring training.
If your idea of fun is fast, there will be go carts or if you'd like to slow things down a bit maybe a chair massage is more your speed. There will be fitness demonstrations, prize drawings and more.
The climbing wall will be in full action staffed by volunteers who will be available to spot climbers from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. These volunteers will teach knot tying and climbing techniques and supervise a speed climbing challenge at 1 p.m., awarding the winner with a prize. The Rock the Hill record time to beat is 17.5 seconds. A vertical climbing challenge will be held at 2 p.m. The Rock the Hill Vertical Challenge prize drawing will be held between 2 and 2:30 p.m.
