Health advice was in abundance from multiple vendors at the Health and Fitness Fair at Andersen AFB May 1.

The Health and Fitness Fair, held at the Coral Reef Fitness Center, was organized as a way for servicemembers and dependents to gain advice from local experts on health and wellness.

"The goal was to provide customers with health, fitness, education and other activities to improve their health and wellness," said Tech. Sgt. Lilliana Harris, 36th Force Support squadron Aerobics Coordinator.

The Health and Fitness Fair hosted vendors from local fitness centers, colleges, family advocacy programs as well as several wellness professionals.

"The fair had a great response," said Sergeant Harris. "Thanks to the turnout of the vendors, the customers left the facility satisfied with new-found information."

"Having information at the customer's fingertips made the whole experience so convenient for them," said Staff Sergeant Kirsten Roberts, 36 FSS fitness specialist.

Each booth provided brochures, videos, books, water bottles and free samples, giving customers some knowledge and souvenirs. "We had nothing but good feedback from customers," continued Sergeant Harris. "The on and off base agencies that volunteered their time and efforts were great."

The Health and Fitness Fair is held annually to help educate servicemembers on nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.
