Zion Fitness 

Line Dancing on Tuesday nights at 6 pm

Exercise can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes and can also improve mood, cognitive function, and overall quality of life.  You can burn approximately 300 calories in one-half hour, and it doesn’t even feel like exercise!

We seek folk who want to play pickleball. If you are interested, reach out to us at (980)404-1185.
