Video+Story: ‘Make Your Move El Paso’ Offers Free Health, Meditation Classes

Two of EPISD’s premiere middle-school programs are joining forces to create a one-of-a-kind mental and physical health expo aimed at helping students and adults exercise both the body and the mind.

Ross Middle School exercise program Rossfit, along with Henderson Middle School’s nationally-recognized chess team will put together the first Make Your Move El Paso Fitness Festival from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 29, at Chapin High School, located at 7000 Dyer Street.

Free classes in yoga, weightlifting, nutrition, dance and meditation will be offered throughout the day by area fitness experts and local gyms.  The event also will feature chess classes and a chess tournament featuring the nationally-ranked Henderson chess team.

“This is a great opportunity for the community to learn more about living healthier lives while getting a taste of the different exercise options available in our city,” said Bobby Macias, Make your Move El Paso coordinator. “We are encouraging parents and students to join us to experience this workout of the mind, body and soul.”

Among the gyms offering classes: RKU Athletics, Peak Fitness, Casa de Yoga, Get Lifted, CrossFit 915 and Push Fitness.

Participants are asked to sign up online and once there, searching for Make Your Move El Paso classes.
