FITT for Life Expo promises fun for the entire family

The Anthem at Merrill Ranch FITT for Life Expo is back for its fourth year to provide the Florence/San Tan Valley area with a one-stop, health and fitness experience.

According to Jake Hoffman, the Fitness and Wellness Director for Anthem at Merrill Ranch and organizer of the event, this year's expo promises to offer something for everybody with an increased focus on entertainment as well as fitness. "The average health and wellness expo just isn't that exciting," he said. "We've flipped that model on its head and made it more entertaining."

The FITT for Life Expo will offer all of the standard expo fare. Vendors for a wide range of health related products will be hawking their wares and professionals will be presenting fitness and cooking demonstrations and lectures. However, the event has stretched the content boundaries, and those less interested in health and wellness will still have plenty to do. The event includes and art expo as well as a Classic Car and motorcycle show featuring members of Club Route 66.

For the youth there is the FITT Kids Playground featuring an extreme obstacle course, a youth fitness contest and numerous games. For children who like to take it easy there will be an arts and crafts area and a petting zoo.

New this year, there will be a number of roving entertainers including a unicycling juggler a magician and a caricature artist providing free mementoes to families of their day together. Adults looking for a little fun can check out the beer garden and the adult game demos and open play.

The Florence Police Department will be on site to provide demonstrations and operate a prescription drug turn in and the Florence Hospital at Anthem has donated a limited number of flu shots to be administered free of charge.

The event will also offer free and low cost health screenings and Mobile Onsite Mammography will preform mammograms at the expo. Women who wish to be screened are asked to make an appointment and bring an insurance card and medical info to the screening. For more information, call 480-967-3767

United Blood Services will also be on hand collecting donations for their blood drive. Current donors are encouraged to go to and enter the sponsor code SCAMerrillRanch. Those who wish to donate but are not current donors can use the site to schedule a donation time.

Event organizer Jake Hoffman explained that the expo is as helpful to vendors as it is to those who are looking to lead healthier lives. "The further out [from Phoenix] you get, the harder it is to network," he said. "The event gives Pinal County residents a free opportunity to come out and see what local businesses have to offer."

The AMR FITT for Life Expo will take place Nov. 13, 2010, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at 3925 N. Sun City Blvd. in Florence, AZ. Limited vendor and sponsorship space is still available. A sponsorship includes booth space and a logo presence online and at the expo. For more information check out
