You've cheered for him from the seats at MetLife Stadium, the comfort of your couch or your favorite barstool as he's sacked countless quarterbacks; now it's time you finally got up close and personal with New York Giant Mark Herzlich.
The popular linebacker will be hanging out with fans on the field at MetLife Stadium for the NBC 4 and New York Giants Health & Fitness Expo, taking place on June 22 and 23, 2013. Hit the field, run through the end zone and checkout the locker room of your favorite team (just don't forget to get Herzlich's autograph, too).
In addition to hanging out with Herzlich and his teammates, you can catchup with NBC 4 sports anchor Bruce Beck or get a healthy cooking demonstration from a former Top Chef contestant. It's all part of the family-friendly fun at the Health & Fitness Expo, running both days from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Attendees will also be encouraged to learn more about healthy lifestyle choices through a series of interactive exhibits and events during the weekend. Health screenings and wellness classes will be available, while trainers and experts will cover topics ranging from men's and women's health issues and treatments, childhood obesity, and health care for the aging and elderly. Visitors will also be able to enjoy healthy cooking demos with celebrity chefs, celebrity meet and greets and autograph signings, as well as Zumba dance, yoga activities and rock climbing. You can even enter to win the hole-in-one contest by playing a world championship golf course using computer animation.
MetLife Stadium parking is free all weekend long, while the Port Authority bus service will provide transportation to and from the event. Visitors will also have the opportunity to have their hands stamped from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. for free entry to the State Fair at the Meadowlands until 6 p.m.
