NL Wellness Expo to showcase healthy living, battle obesity


A Newfoundland and Labrador Wellness Expo this weekend in St. John’s will showcase the latest in health, wellness and active living as a means of battling obesity rates.

A news release from Rideout Enterprises says obesity rates in this province are set to climb to 71 per cent in five years. “But, while having one of the highest obesity rates in Canada, the wellness community is alive and “well” in Newfoundland and Labrador.”

Rideout Enterprises’ second annual NL Wellness Expo is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at the St. John’s Remax Centre.

It will feature exhibitors, presentations and live demos  from health and wellness leaders, including four live cooking demos from fat loss expert and cookbook author Courtney Rowsell and two sessions with author and motivational speaker Jeremy Bennett.

 “I was very impressed with the 2014 NL Wellness Expo. I have attended many, many events throughout my career and it’s always such a great feeling to know that there is a solid group of people behind the scenes making sure everything is running smoothly. The turnout, quality of work that went into this and reactions from the crowds were incredible. I look forward every year to this and highly recommend this to anyone interested in their health and wellbeing,”  said Bennett.

Rideout Enterprises is an event consulting company, focused on event hosting, planning and management.
