Fit Fest at the Reid Park Zoo is taking place from 5 to 8 p.m. March 3. Last year's event drew around 1,200 people to sweat it out at the zoo.

If you've ever wondered what the heck Pound Fitness or PiYo are, check out Fit Fest at the Reid Park Zoo Saturday, March 3. 

You can try a wide range of fitness programs like those mentioned above as well as Turbo Kick, Boot Camp, Silver Sneakers, Zumba, Mashup, Mixed Fit, Tabata and Yoga all in one place.

But, that's not all. 

You'll also be able to browse a variety of vendors including Boxing Inc., Dance It Studio, TeenFit Studio, Cortiva Massage, Aveda, Top Golf and more.

While you're at it, you can get a wellness check from Pima Community College. They'll check your resting heart rate, blood pressure, hand grip strength and your waist-to-hip ratio. 

Bring the kids. They'll have fun (while you're sweating) at Tucson Medical Center's Kid's Zone where they can play on an inflatable obstacle course, participate in animal Olympics and do activities with The Shyann Kindness Project and My Gym.
