Debut of the NFHOF’s Traveling Exhibit is a Huge Success!

May 2, 2016

For Immediate Release:

The National Fitness Hall of Fame took its “Show-on-the-Road” as the 2016 traveling expo kicked-off the season stopping in Minooka, Illinois.  On Sunday afternoon, May 1st, about a hundred people participated in the NFHOF’s “Be Active” Community Expo which focused on fitness education, active participation and healthy living.

Families and individuals got a chance to fellowship together by participating in crafts, games and contests.  Everyone learned about the importance of regular exercise through the NFHOF’s “Fitness For All” seminar and got a chance to see some of the fascinating museum items showcasing several “Fitness Eras” over the past 100 years. (1900-2000)

“Educating, Motivating & Inspiring is what this tour is all about, said the Hall’s founder, John Figarelli.  “We have made being active, getting fit and learn about fitness history Fun-For-All!”  

Of course, all of this would not be possible without the support of our terrific sponsors; the American Council on Exercise (ACE), the American College of Sports Medicine (ASCM), the National Federation of Professional Trainers (NFPT) & IDEA Health & Fitness.

Next stop?  The Prevea Health & Fitness Expo in Green Bay, Wisconsin with 14,000 participants!
