EAST RUTHERFORD — Sporting their New York Giants blue and yoga pants, visitors at the annual NBC 4 New York and Telemundo 47 Health & Fitness Expo came out to MetLife Stadium to run a running back route, climb rock walls, swing on zip lines and most importantly, get active.

Presented by Quest Diagnostics, the two-day expo is aimed at promoting healthier lifestyles and featured activity stations, classes and vendors. In addition, nearly 50 local non-profits were on-site, including American Diabetes Association, American Red Cross and St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center.

The expo will also be held on Sunday, June 24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“The Health & Fitness Expo is free and filled with a number of family-friendly activities designed to promote a healthier lifestyle. Working with our partners at the New York Giants, it is also the only place where viewers can tour the Giants locker room, meet our WNBC anchors and reporters, and ride two Ziplines from one end zone to the other,” said Eric Lerner, President and General Manager of NBC 4 New York.

Kids could run the same drills as football players, including tackling dummies or running routes as a receiver, at the Play Football Summer Season station, aided by coaches and team members from Wagner College.
