Guide: What to Expect at the 2019 NBC4 Telemundo 44 Health & Fitness Expo

The 2019 NBC4 Telemundo 44 Health & Fitness Expo is here!

For the 26th year, we're bringing you a chance to learn more about health, wellness and fitness — while having fun. Join us in Hall B and C at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on Saturday until 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Please use caution if you plan to come to the Expo on Sunday as a winter storm has dumped inches of snow over the region. Metro is the safest option to get to the event.

From workout classes to celebrity guests, there's a ton to see and do at the Expo.

Each day, you can participate in fitness classes or be tested for health concerns you may have, including high blood pressure and glaucoma.
