On Saturday, March 5, Fit Fest Tucson will take over the Reid Park Zoo for a night of good ol' fashioned community involvement. The fest will not only raise money for important Zoo endeavors, but also general fitness awareness in the Old Pueblo. 
Licensed and certified fitness instructors from across Arizona will teach a laundry list of exercise classes, ranging from more popularized fitness regimens such as P90X, yoga and Zumba, to newer ones like PiYo and Turbo Kick. Fit Fest offers attendees a range of low and high impact workouts so everyone can participate—meaning, don't be discouraged to attend if you can't run in and out of Sabino Canyon in an hour.

All ticket-sale proceeds will fund the Zoo's construction of a new Animal Health Center that's been in the works since May 2014. The new center will be around 7,500 square feet and update the Zoo's current resources to reflect current veterinary technologies and standards. New technological additions include a surgical suite, intensive care unit and diagnostic laboratory, to name a few. 

Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children ages 2 to 14 pre-sale, and $25 at the door. Find more info and grab your tickets here
