Looking to maintain your healthy lifestyle or be inspired to begin your fitness journey? Going to be in the Nashville, TN area Saturday and Sunday September 28th and 29th? Head to the New Music City Center and browse the latest innovations in the nutrition, fitness, and health industry, or check out a variety of fitness events going on right there at The Healthy Living Expo.
It doesn’t matter if you’re 25 or 65 – there’s a little something for everyone! We all know the illnesses and problems linked with obesity and an unhealthy lifestyle. This expo can help you jumpstart your new, healthy lifestyle, or introduce those already on the right track to fitness to new ideas and techniques to try. Whether a small change in what you eat or a big change in your activity level, the trade show displays will offer everyone something of value.
There will be over 100 trade show booths set up in the exhibition space to browse, offering a little bit of everything. You’ll find the latest fitness innovations and nutritional supplements, to companies specializing in children’s health and those catering to the elderly.
Some exhibitors will feature health screenings as part of their trade show displays, while others will be giving shots for a very low fee, or free. CareSpot Urgent Care Clinics, for example, will offer visitors to their booth BMI, blood pressure, glucose, and cholesterol tests, while the American Family Care trade show display will provide flu shots for attendees. Get information on different ailments, snag samples of new products to make your life better, and enter yourself into some drawings for prizes from numerous vendors.
