One of the biggest obstacles Americans face today in maintaining a healthy lifestyle is not knowing where to begin. If a family is new to our community, they may not be familiar with what businesses are here in Clarksville and what services or products they may offer for an individual or family to maintain healthy living for their entire family. Also, if an individual is looking to begin a diet or workout program, they might not be aware of avenues that  may or may not be available to them as well.

In this rapidly growing  city, many people may not know of the services that can offer recreation or nutrition assistance for their family. However, on February 19, the 2009 Austin Peay University Recreation Wellness Expo will not only showcase these local companies, but will make the Expo absolutely free for anyone in the Clarksville community who is interested in finding out more ways to maintain or, in some cases, change their personal wellness.

Several Clarksville companies, including health spas, chiropractor clinics, physical therapy clinics, community programs and services, health clubs, among others will be available for demos, gift certificates, product samples, and business information and offer ways in which they can help you or your family make choices that will promote wellness in every aspect of your everyday life.

A representative from Doctors Care discusses their medical services.

Austin Peay University Recreation Fitness Graduate Assistant Lauren Wilkinson said about the event:

“We hope that friends and family of the Austin Peay Community will encourage their friends or coworkers to come along with them to this event. We will be giving away door prizes, so everyone who attends will be leaving with something.”

The Expo will be held in the Foy Fitness and Recreation Center on the campus of Austin Peay from 11:00am to 3:00pm and is free to the general public.
