This month’s LifeForward Workshop sponsored by Zonta Club of SCV will focus on health and wellness. The free program will include speakers and an opportunity for attendees to physically move and learn exercises during the workshop. Topics will cover eating a balanced diet and a lifestyle of exercise. The workshop will help participants focus on eating healthy food, create diabetic and heart healthy diets, and stretch, firm and trim.
The workshop is scheduled for 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 22 at Savia Community Center, 23780 Newhall Ave. in Newhall.
Presenters will be McKenzie Hall Jones, registered dietician nutritionist; Rich Enriquez, fitness movement specialist; and Michelle Jones, certified Zumba instructor. Participants who come in workout clothing will be invited to participate in Zumba and movement activities.
Hall Jones operated Wild Hive, a firm specializing in agriculture, food and lifestyle marketing. Enrique owns a private studio and is active in the Fit N Run Personal Training Program. Jones is an instructor at 24 Hour Fitness.
The workshop will help participants learn how fitness promotes vitality, learn exercises they can do at home, keep the body fueled properly, and prepare delicious, heart healthy and diabetic food.

Previous workshops in the series have helped women select career options and pursue meaningful employment, work on goal-setting and time management, deal with anger management, set budgets and file taxes, deal with drug and cyber bullying issues, establish a career path and get a job, and go after financial support after a divorce. Workshops are designed to help participants believe in their unlimited power and potential, and build the skills necessary to succeed.
Zonta offers the free LifeForward workshops, usually on a monthly basis (although the series is dark during July and December), in collaboration with Single Mothers Outreach, Domestic Violence Center, Returning Women Veterans and Veterans’ Wives, and the Los Angeles County Department of Child & Family Services serving foster mothers. KHTS Radio is a co-sponsor of the series with Zonta.
Workshops are organized by topics in which women express interest. A schedule of upcoming workshops is posted on www.scvzonta.org for women who are interested in a particular topic.
