At the second annual Health and Wellness Fair that will be held at the Shoppes at Osprey, located on FishHawk Blvd. next to CenterState Bank on Saturday, February 23 from 1-4 p.m., you will be able meet with local businesses participating in the Fair to learn about their services that can help you meet your fitness and nutrition goals.

It is important to take a pro-active approach to health and wellness. A lot of illness and the pain caused by illness and other medical issues can be traced back to very basic root causes.

The symptoms that manifest are the body’s final attempt to get a message to the brain that the body and the mind’s needs aren’t being met. Many people think that nutrition is limited to the food we eat, but there are many non-food components that nourish us as well.

Tara Gravino, Owner of TNT Smoothies & Supplements said, “Taking responsibility for your health begins with small pro-active decisions that contribute to a healthy lifestyle on a daily basis, as opposed to reactive steps only after we feel sick.”

TNT offers everything from daily multi-vitamins and supplements to entire programs for serious fitness and weight loss goals. “Sharing information about health is something they have found to help people live more abundant, well-rounded and fulfilling lives,” said Gravino.  They are a main sponsor of the Health & Wellness Fair.

The Fair is intended to be educational, interactive and fun for all ages, and the goal is to highlight the healthy, natural options each participating business brings to the community.

There will be demonstrations and samples from TNT vitamin and supplement representatives, their resident therapeutic grade essential oil consultant from Now Age Wellness and their wheat grass supplier from Universal Living Sprouts.

Snap Fitness trainers will be present to answer questions about healthy lifestyle changes, weight loss, and the different fitness packages available at Snap. There will be Interactive group fitness demos and Snap Fitness will also provide body fat testing and measurements.

Other participating businesses will include Strong Life Chiropractic, FishHawk Martial Arts Academy, Keller Williams Realty, FishHawk Animal Clinic, The Coffee House and FishHawk Pizza.

They will also have volunteers from the local Relay for Life (RFL) of FishHawk to provide information regarding the services the American Cancer Society is able to offer through funds raised through Relay. They plan on donating a portion of the proceeds from TNT’s smoothie sales to The Ibis Park Partners, LLC RFL Team.
