Community members committed to be active and fit in 2020 will have a chance to kick off the New Year in the right direction, when MWR hosts the annual Health and Fitness Expo, Jan. 16, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Specker Field House.

The event, which draws hundreds of participants each year, gives everyone who works, lives and plays on post a chance to learn about the benefits of cardiovascular fitness, discover the wide range of exercise programs available to the community and participate in a variety of aerobic and strength-training demonstrations.

The goal is to educate the community about sleep, nutrition and physical activity, said Charice Smith, Kawamura Human Performance Center fitness program specialist.

Throughout the Fitness Expo, trainers and exhibitors will offer specialized exercise activities and information about the Civilian Health and Fitness Program, which is designed to empower employees to get fit during the work day by allowing three hours a week of command-approved fitness time for six months.

Eligible participants include all active-duty Soldiers, family members, retirees, DoD civilians and affiliated ID cardholders. For more information about the Expo, call Sports and Fitness at 703-805-4655 or visit
