Think just because summer is over that you don’t have to worry about looking good? Fat chance. The truth of the matter is that staying healthy and fit is a year-round job and one that more and more people are starting to take seriously. Forget that plan of hiding in shame under bulky sweaters all winter and embrace a health-focused lifestyle instead. Need a bit of inspiration? That’s where we come in, as once again the Atlantic City Weekly Health, Wellness and Fitness Expo comes to Ocean City Music Pier from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15.
For those who have not attended before, the expo, which is sponsored by Shore Medical Center, offers attendees a chance to hobnob with the health-conscious, maybe take a free yoga or strength training class or enjoy an exciting live demo from Amerikick Martial Arts. A variety of vendors will be on hand offering info on everything from juicing to weight loss. In addition there will be jazz music performed live by the Budesa Brothers, but come early — they hit the stage at 9:30 a.m.
