(WBNG Binghamton) A day of fitness and fun for Delhi is going on this Saturday, May 11 at the Cardio Club and Delhi Dance Studio.

Cardio Club's new location at 17 Elm Street in Delhi, NY.

This free event will feature free fitness & dance classes for all ages, free giveaways, free healthy food samples, free consultations with Viafore Family Chiropractic and nutritionist Emily Ferencik, injury prevention tips from Sarah Pawlikowski, Physical Therapist at UHS Delaware Valley Hospital, open discussions about health and wellness, dog walking, golf tips, walking tours, obstacles, pony rides and more! There will also be a drop in spot for people who would like to bring down their kayak, tube or row boat, but don't forget to bring a life jacket. Light fare will be available at a modest price.

The Community Heart Program will also be providing free "heart risk screenings" at The Cardio Club on May 11 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Participants will be screened for total cholesterol and HDL cholesterol levels, total/HDL cholesterol ratio, glucose (test for diabetes), blood pressure, body mass index (BMI), and waist-hip ratio. Smokers may also be tested for carbon monoxide levels. In addition, participants will be given an estimate of their chances of developing heart disease during the next ten years. The screening takes about 15 minutes and does NOT require fasting. Appointments are required. Please call (607) 746 - 0357 to save your spot today!

Attendees that participate in the fun will be entered into a drawing for great prizes that include a Cardio Club gym membership, Cardio Club Class Pass, one personal training session and getting to know you session, and our grand prize winner will take home a Wii Game Console and Wii Fit.
