FITNESS | East End Fitness Festival 

On Saturday, September 13, Fitness Edge Radio will host the first East End Fitness Festival, a daylong expo of health featuring more than 40 local fitness related businesses, live music, and an assortment of food options. The event will take place in the parking lot on East Avenue between Mathews and Scio Streets, from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Fitness Edge founder John Hutchings says the event will "capture the energy and heritage of the East End Festival," with a fitness related twist.

Highlights include free group exercise events in Yoga, Bowka, and others, as well as fitness challenges ranging from weight lifting to a Ninja Warrior inspired obstacle course. A "Fitness Village" will house local businesses and gyms, where patrons can shop and attend special demonstrations. Admission is $3, with portions of the proceeds going to the Roland Williams' Champions' Academy. Hutchings says he intends the festival to be a "celebration of the fitness lifestyle and culture," and hopes to raise awareness of the importance of healthy living, with plans to expand upon the festival in years to come.
