The Following Information comes to us from Holy Cross Hospital's Monika Driver:

The Healthier You-Fit Kids Health & Fitness Expo and Challenge produced by The Fit Solution and Holy Cross Hospital will take over downtown Silver Spring on Saturday, October 1, 2011 from 11am-9pm for an 8th consecutive year!. The Expo portion will take place in City Place Mall with a Fitness Makeover Reveal, fitness performances, and over (70) health and fitness exhibitors featuring Downtown Silver Spring merchants and leading wellness experts/physicians, natural food companies, kids activities, fitness gurus and much more.  

The Expo will kick-off a complimentary Challenge that will continue for 10-months (in three 12-week increments) and include 150+ fitness testing stations (throughout MD, DC and VA) that challengers can use to register and monitor their progress.  Each challenger will be encouraged to register and create a profile on the web portal, complete fitness testing at an on-site location (BMI, Waist-to-Hip Ratio, Height, Weight, and Body Fat Composition), and recruit at least (2) teammates as accountability partners. Weekly fitness newsletters including evidence-based fitness tips, weekly challenge quiz prizes, sample exercise routines and fitness/nutrition questions answered by a registered clinical exercise physiologist and a registered dietitian will assist challengers. 

Fitness interviews of celebrities such as Academy Award nominated Taraji P. Henson, NFL Hall of Famer Washington Redskin Art Monk, R & B Artist “Tank”, NBA All Star Grant Hill, Medical Director for “The Biggest Loser” Dr. Robert Huizenga and many more will also be used to motivate participants.  Prizes will be given to the individual and team that reduce excess body fat composition the most.
