Karla Adams Health Fair this Weekend! (10/12)
Karla Adams 3rd Annual Health Fair is this weekend (10/12) at Riverside Plaza. Come out for a day of health and fun. A message from Karla with more details about the event is below.
“The Karla Adams Health and Fitness Fair is a one day event where people of all ages can come and learn more about health and fitness and about local resources and services that assist in healthy living. This year the 3rd Annual Karla Adams Health & Fitness Fair is scheduled for Saturday, October 12, 2013. This event is also part of Riverside City & Riverside Community Health Foundations Fit, Fresh & Fun initiative to lower the body fat percentage in Riverside below 50% over the next five years. The purpose of the Health Fair is to showcase healthy lifestyles, transformation stories, and local companies that aid in this purpose. For the past 15 years it has been my passion to develop a company that improves people’s lives by educating and working with them on nutrition and fitness. My secondary goal is to influence the nutrition and fitness trends of the public. In 2011 the Karla Adams Fitness Corporation team and I launched our inaugural Karla Adams Health and Fitness Fair. The purpose of the Health Fair is to showcase healthy lifestyles, transformation stories, and local companies that aid in this purpose.
Highlights of our success in the past two years include our Speaking Panel comprised of fitness celebrities, health screening by Riverside Community Hospital, a blood drive, the UCR rock wall, fruit eating contests with both our former and current Riverside Mayor and Kid’s Fitness Week, where we spoke to 450 students at Bobby Bonds Park.
This year the Karla Adams Health and Fitness Fair will feature its first ever “It’s a Lifestyle! Challenge.” The contestants will be judged based on how their lifestyle change has prevented or reversed obesity and disease, how they have altered their character, and how they have influenced others to do the same The audience will cast their votes for who they feel should win. People who are currently in the process of lifestyle change or who have experienced change in the past can join the contest. Some of the prizes for this challenge include an EXOTIC VACATION, a THREE MONTH LIFESTYLE CHANGE PACKAGE, A PHOTO SHOOT at Karla Adams Fitness Corporation and other prizes to be announced. We believe the “It’s a Lifestyle! Challenge” will create a strong community of people who live healthy lifestyles and influence others to do the same. Our winners will be anounced by the Hornurbal Riverside Mayor Bailey
The Health and Fitness Fair will also feature the Miss Riverside Fitness Pageant that will be judged by fitness celebrities. The pageant is free to enter and open to the public. Local women that have been highly dedicated to their fitness and nutrition routines will compete and will share with the audience what has kept them motivated and how they would like to influence the health trends of society.
Another main feature of this year’s Health Fair is the Fruit Eating Contest sponsored by Edible Arrangements which will be a contest between our fitness celebrity guests and our Honorable Riverside Mayor Bailey.”
