Fitness and Wellness Conference at STAR Center

Saturday, April 28 (9:00am - 12:00pm)

Reserve your spot for the FREE Fitness & Wellness Conference at STAR Center.


This three hour community event features concurrent, half-hour fitness demonstrations, healthy-living workshops, cooking classes, and martial arts offerings for school-age kids. Workshops on honey bee conservation and raising chickens also will be presented.

One room will be dedicated to classes for kids from 6 to 12, including kung fu, karate and hybrid martial arts programs. In STAR Center’s demonstration kitchen, a series of five, half-hour cooking classes will be offered in succession.

If you’re interested in personal training, meet STAR Center trainer Andre Anthony. He will provide free blood pressure testing, postural assessments and body composition evaluations, plus personal training consultations.


Throughout the conference, several organizations will be on hand to present information on health and wellness services, composting and recycling, beekeeping and vegetable gardening.

Free Child Watch services and admission to STAR Center’s Treetops Playgrounds also will be available to kids whose parents and caregivers register in advance. Space is limited to 80 children, so pre-register to ensure a spot. Call (253) 404-3939 to reserve a spot in child watch.
