Get Fit! Tullahoma and Urgent Team will host the second community health fair and fitness expo from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 5, at Northgate Mall.

The free event will offer fitness and nutrition tips, health screenings and more, according to event organizers.

“The results of the screenings will help you establish a baseline to see how healthy you are and what areas you need to improve in,” said Mayor Lane Curlee. “This event will also provide exposure and education about different dimensions of wellness and fitness opportunities in our community.”
