A free health and fitness fair in Rancho Bernardo next weekend will focus on seniors’ needs and activities.

The event will be 12:30-3 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25 at the Ed Brown Senior Center, 18402 W. Bernardo Drive in Rancho Bernardo Community Park. RSVPs are requested by Monday, Feb. 20. Call 858-487-9324.

It will begin with a free lunch from 12:30-1:15 p.m., followed by a presentation from 1:30-2:30 p.m. by Alex Signorello, a certified personal trainer who specializes in exercises for seniors. His talk will be followed by opportunities to learn more about the center’s classes and activities, said Pastor Jeff Keck from Petra Pentacostal Church.

The church, which for the past year has been holding services at the Brown center, is organizing the event as part of its community outreach, Keck said.

Among center classes and activities attendees can learn about are gentle yoga, ways to improve balance, arthritis help, ballroom dancing, Zumba, lawn bowling and croquet.

“We’re trying to let the senior community know about all that is available at the center,” Keck said.

As for Signorello’s talk, Keck said it will likely include health, fitness training, nutrition and a demonstration of low-impact exercises seniors can perform.

“He’s a great instructor,” Keck added.

Free information on health and fitness products, services and places like retirement facilities can be obtained from vendor booths throughout the fair. Each attendee will also receive a goodie bag and have an opportunity to win door prizes. Fun activities will include putting contests and people can receive a tour of the center.

Keck said the free lunch is due to contributions by four Rancho Bernardo businesses — Souplantation, Albertsons, and Starbucks in Westwood and RB Town Center.

As of press time, there were some vendor booth spaces still available. Businesses can rent a 4-foot space for $95 or an 8-foot space for $150. If they would like to have their company logo featured on the event’s banner, they can do so for $75. Camera-ready art must be provided. The deadline is Monday, Feb. 20. For details and availability, call Keck at 858-722-1123.
