NBC4 Health & Fitness Expo --FREE--Jump Start Your Health New Year's Resolution!

Hi, guys!

WOW, the Health and Fitness Expo was SO EXCITING last year!!! CAN'T WAIT TO GO AGAIN!!! There was FREE FOOD at the cooking demos (you could just eat and eat!!!)...You could ALSO DANCE, get your OWN CD of doing an ACTUAL weather forecast, MEET a famous weather forecaster, dance, and be a part of so many exercise classes for FREE...There are also TONS of free health screenings, and free giveaways!!! You can meet famous people who were on the TV show, the Biggest Loser, as well! :)  There is just SO MUCH TO DO THERE!! AND, the best part is it's FREE!!! "The NBC Health and Fitness Expo is the largest free consumer health event in the country with close to 200 exhibitors and 87,000+ attendees! Come experience hundreds of exhibits, demonstrations, giveaways!!!!!!!!!!!!!!."

Let's meet at 11:30 am, on 3/16, at the entrance of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, the ENTRANCE that is ACROSS from the Mount Vernon Sq Convention metro exit!!! FROM HAVING GONE THERE LAST YEAR, I NOW know that the BEST place to meet is at THIS ENTRANCE, ACROSS FROM THE METRO!!! If you arrive on the other side (by car), then just walk around to the other entrance (which is on the back side of that one), and make sure you see the metro RIGHT ACROSS FROM YOU!!

It is a BUSY place there! So, if people want to go to different areas at different times while we are there, it's OK if we split up sometimes, as there are so many things to see there and it's all health stuff!!

Hope to see you there, and Happy New Year!

    Thanx Scott. Glad you had fun...:) And, I'm glad you got to meet, Eun Yang! When you got so excited about meeting the celebrity, you got me excited (and I hadn't even known who she was. :))...The pic came out good. :)

    Had fun and got some great medical and cooking advice. Wish I had had a chance to try the zip line!

    WOW, it was AMAZING!!! THANKS for organizing Noonie!! Please don't worry about your phone not working as you really did a GREAT job to make sure that people knew EXACTLY where to meet!!!!! I hope you made it to the cooking show as I got SO MUCH free food there!!!! I did the zip lining too, and it was SO HARD to believe that it was free, too!!! There was so much to see and do there, and all for FREE!!! I EVEN met some famous people!! WOW!!! OH, and I can SEE why you were thinking not to make it a meetup, as I really enjoyed walking off and doing things on my own, without the confinement of the group..:) THANKS again for telling us about this terrific event!!! :)

    Ytzi, YES it WAS a great expo! I will go back tomorrow for the free ziplining!!! you couldn't find anyone? We were exactly at the place where I emailed we'd be....We waited for more than a 1/2 an hour there, it's ok...As long as you had fun!! My PHONE STILL doesn't work, but we emailed out BOTH Peter's phone and Rudy's...Hope to see you another time! Noonie

    My phone is still not working! Rudy, I don't have your phone number! As it's in my phone that isn't working!!!!!! Guys, here's Peter's number again:[masked] 9092. Rudy, if you want to post your phone just do that here. By now I am getting ready to go. I will do what I can to make sure Peter's on time. I hope he will be and probably will...I will be there, but my phone isn't working. Here's what I wrote about we're meeting again: "There is ONLY ONE exit at the Mount Vernon Square metro. You go up the escalators upon exiting, and THEN immediately you see the doors to enter the Convention Center! We will meet RIGHT THERE, right inside the entrance to the convention center, RIGHT across from the escalators to the metro. I will guide people to go inside, so that you don't have to wait outside. It is not far from 7th and M. The BEST way to go is by metro, to see this exactly. I was told that it's the North entrance of the Convention Center, so NOT the front entrance on Mount Vernon Pl.."

    Hi GUYS! I went there and just got back!! There is ONLY ONE exit at the Mount Vernon Square metro. You go up the escalators upon exiting, and THEN immediately you see the doors to enter the Convention Center! We will meet RIGHT THERE, right inside the entrance to the convention center, RIGHT across from the escalators to the metro. I will guide people to go inside, so that you don't have to wait outside. It is not far from 7th and M. The BEST way to go is by metro, to see this exactly. I was told that it's the North entrance of the Convention Center, so NOT the front entrance on Mount Vernon Pl...My PHONE fell in a cup of WATER and it's NOT WORKING...ANY volunteers to give out their number for the group this time??? Please let me know! Thanks!

    I have another activity on Saturday during that time, so I will probably go on Sunday. Have fun all.

    March 15, 2013

  • Noonie

    It'll still be super fun there, even if we split up sometimes. :) There is so much there to see...:) See you guys soon, and I'll keep you posted about metro stuff, etc. :)

  • Noonie

    Hi Scott, I can go visit the place today after working to make sure. AGAIN, I have NOT wanted to have this event "as a meetup," because it is a place to see so many things, and it's good to have the freedom to do so. So many people signed up and I was going to just have it posted on the calendar, but members said it is FINE for us to split up...I WILL visit after work and then I PROMISE to post the EXACT exit location from the metro where to meet. I know that RIGHT After exiting the metro you SEE the convention center, but it's not the front of the convention center...I'll let you guys know TONIGHT, so I hope that people check their emails tonight...THANKS, scott for everythign..

    March 15, 2013

  • Scott D.

    Hi Noonie, Are you referring to the metro entrance on the corner of 7th St that's across the street from the Cap Bikeshare rack? If so, not sure which entrance to the convention center you are referring to--do you mean the entrance that's on the street that runs under the CC?

    March 15, 2013

  • Noonie

    Actually, Julia, someone just changed her RSVP and so I added you on...Again guys, this is an event where we can all split up whenever we want, to view all the awesome activities there...In EVERY meetup for YEARS, I have kept us all together, no matter what the event...for THIS one, since it's not an event for such a huge mass, people seem to understand that it really won't be a typical meetup of mine...It's more of a place to learn about health stuff, then a social gathering....:) Feel free to split up and go to whatever you want to see there, and I only have it appearing as a "meetup," since I think you guys want it up like that...However, we are more going to free to wander in whichever way we want. :)...Thanks

    Too bad the group is closed. I would like to attend, too.

    March 1, 2013

  • Noonie

    Guys, the reason why I closed RSVP's is because this is an event with so many health screenings and other activities going on simultaneously. Typically, people like to go to this sort of thing on their own, and we actually will likely split up at times, so that you are free to go to whatever part you'd like...

    When is gonna take place the next event?

    February 17, 2013

  • Noonie

    Actually, this will be different than other meetups we've had, because we will be split up at times, goin to different events there of our own choosing...I am used to going to the health expo myself, and I didn't expect it to get this many people signed up...So please be ok with us splitting up and experiencing all it has to offer...If we aren't always together as a big group, it's fine! :)

    Could we have dinner after

    February 4, 2013

    • Noonie

      FQ, there will be food at the event...If people go to the cooking shows, they can even get TONS of free food...In addition, they have a restaurant there...We will split up at times...

      February 4, 2013

  • Noonie

    For this type of event, there is so much to see and do, so it is perfectly FINE if we split up sometimes, and then have a meeting place later on....In fact, I like going to these expos by myself...I posted it so that you could know about this fantastic event, but when we are there, it is understandable if we want to split up at times (so that we can see all the amazing things, without the confines of being forced to go to any part OVER another part that you might really want to go to)...We might want to all dance together if they will have this amazing Carribean dance part that they've had before...

    Is this an annual event??

    January 8, 2013

  • Noonie

    It will be the 20th anniversary of this health expo!! That's why they are having it later than usual this year! They say it gives them more time to set up all the wonderful things they have planned! And there will be A LOT of cool things there!!! For FREE!
