Well, now so do you!
The four-time Super Bowl champion New York Giants and broadcast partner NBC 4 New York are teaming up to host the very first family-friendly NBC 4 and New York Giants Health & Fitness Expo. One of the largest free and open-to-the-public health events will be held at MetLife Stadium on Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23 from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Visitors to the Expo will have the opportunity walk on the actual field where their favorite players score touchdowns and even have access to exclusive locker room tours.
But the fun isn't limited to the locker room. New York Giants players will be on hand throughout the weekend, hanging out with fans and signing autographs, as well as NBC 4 lead sportscaster Bruce Beck and other NBC 4 anchors.
Attendees will 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.-2 p.m. for free entry to the State Fair at the Meadowlands until 6 p.m.
