Star Health Expo 2019 is here to give Penangites a carnival-like atmosphere where fitness, wellness and good health come first at SPICE Convention Centre in Relau, Penang, until tomorrow.
At Great Eastern Life’s pavilion are eight fun challenges for people to test their fitness, agility and creativity, and win mystery gifts.
Looming 6m overhead is the Live Great Sky Track for visitors to test their nerves on four high rope courses.
Try that and any two more challenges - Laser Maze, Kinect Workout, Kinetic Bike Race, Button Badge Workshop, Photo Booth, health screening by Great Eastern Life partners, or talk to one of the Live Great advisers - and win mystery gifts.
Health professionals are giving free health checks for visitors.
From visual ear canal and eardrum checks to the alignment of your spine and microscopic inspection of your blood, the public can get a quick look at their health on the spot.
There are also body mass index checks, cataract screening, blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol readings, flat foot gauges, fitness, balance and strength assessments and inspections of pain in the back, knees, shoulders and other joints.
Many of the screenings are done by Penang’s private hospitals, which are also among the 42 exhibitors present.
Early bird visitors at the expo’s opening yesterday were seen bearing bags of door gifts and product samples from exhibitors, who readied promotional prices for health foods and supplements including diabetic-friendly noodles, pure fish-bone derived collagen, the latest fitness wear and gear.
Seventeen talk and activities are lined up for today and tomorrow.
Experts will speak on topics including steps to staying young, DNA wellness screening, physiotherapy, foot problems and health management on top of demonstrations of yoga, body combat and tabata training, zumba and Dance Fit sessions.
Star Health Expo 2019, with the theme ‘Get Fit. Live Great!’, aims to inspire Malaysians to lead a healthy lifestyle and adopt a holistic approach that includes physical and mental health, emotional wellbeing and financial wellness.
Star Health Expo 2019 is organised by I.Star Events Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Star Media Group Berhad with Great Eastern Life as exclusive event partner.
