Health & Fitness!

Washington DC The Scene

Saturday we joined thousands of DC area residents at the Convention Center for the annual NBC4 Health & Fitness Expo. Hundreds of exhibitors came to show us the best in health and fitness. Guests participated in zumba and yoga classes, rock climbing, a walking track, obstacle courses, and push-up, sit-up and squat challenges by Gold’s Gym. We snapped GEICO’s Gecko with Mary Washington Hospital’s Tecia Epps and GEICO’s Tamra Snellings.


This year the focus expanded to mental health with a Changing Minds pavilion with information. Free health check-ups were offered, including kidney, hearing, vision, breast and prostate. Here, Marine Corps' Rob Leer, CDC’s Kiara Leer, World Gym’s Robbie Vizcarra and Lizzy Lewandowski, and DOJ’s Curtis Lemay.


The crowd loved the Selfie Station and the cooking demonstrations with delicious samples. Here, Freddie Mac’s Hanna Abebe, real estate agent Adam Tafesse, Morris Ginsberg’s Glen England, and Haven and Nathan Tafesse.


Dr. Michael Blicher’s Cristina Sanchez and Dr. Keith Progebin’s Denise Torres volunteered at the DC Dental Society Foundation booth. They flank DOJ’s Tony Torres.
