Performance Health & Fitness is excited to announce a new wellness workshop series, featuring monthly classes taught by members of the Performance Health & Fitness staff, and/or members of our community. All workshops will have an educational agenda, as well as a hands-on approach to learning, and are open to current members, as well as the general public. Each workshop will have a small fee to reserve your space – which will be donated to various non-profits around our community (typically related to the workshop topic).

Pumpkin Palooza Family-Friendly Event

What to Expect

This 1-hour family-friendly event is all about the fall-favorite staple, the pumpkin! Kids [and parents] will be able to paint mini pumpkins while learning all about the health benefits of this amazing FRUIT!?

That’s right, pumpkins are a fruit (who knew!). Learn more pumpkin fun facts, hear about their nutritional health benefits, and see all the useful ways to repurpose jack-o-lantern leftovers.

Pumpkin snacks will be provided, and all participants will receive pumpkin recipes to take home and try on your own.
