COLUMBUS – Area residents will have a free opportunity to get a check up and test out fitnesses classes at the Wellness Center on Saturday.
The 14th Annual Tune-Up for Life event will be held on Saturday, as organizers move the event to the fall, instead of in January, for the first time. The event will allow for residents to receive several different types of check-ups or screenings, in a more convenient manor.
CCH Occupational Health’s Danielle Frewing says, “We think of health and wellness as what you eat, and how active you are, but really there’s many other components of that so we have various vendors. Such as Bob Erby, who will be there talking about financial wellness, to Bryan Health, who will be providing free and reduced cardiac screenings, and CHI will be providing free and reduced cardiac screenings, as well as our wellness profiles that we will be offering at a rate of $60 per participant.”
Frewing says the YMCA will also be hosting a free class during the morning hours, so those who want to come try out the facility for themselves can do so. The event is open to the public, and anyone can attend at no cost.
“This is a great event to create greater awareness about your personal health. We want you to take the information that you receive from the event, the screenings you’ve participated in. Take that back to your family physician and talk about what’s going well, what you could improve on,” says Frewing.
The event runs from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Friday at the Columbus Wellness Center in north Columbus.
