The June mixer sponsor is Snap Fitness

Snap Fitness was founded in Verde Valley 16 years ago by Steele Sacks and Craig Eagle. Their mutual love of athletics and understanding of the need for wellness inspire their continued growth and success. They believe gyms are a “social wellness space” where individuals can interact in a like-minded, healthy community. With four locations, they soon became the fitness hub for most of the Verde Valley. The West Sedona location has acted as the flagship for their eight clubs.

Please bring your business cards, build relationships, and connect in Snap Fitness West Sedona’s social wellness space.
