New Year's resolutions beware: the annual Spokane Health and Fitness Expo is back, just days after January 1, to offer plenty of activities that'll entice anyone out there to actually stick to a new fitness regimen. It's also an event for which the athleisure wear trend is totally acceptable and encouraged, since there are plenty of reasons to get sweaty during fitness classes and other demos to test out new-to-you forms of exercise, including a climbing wall, barre, yoga and even martial arts. Entry to the two-day event includes access to all of these demos and a packed schedule of classes (check for the complete schedule online) offered throughout the weekend, along with seminars and an exhibitor fair.
Among many other reasons to brave the cold and head to the Expo are a pickleball tourney, roller-derby triple-header (featuring Spokane-area teams vs. regional rivals), a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament and an all-female CrossFit competition. If attending this annual new year event doesn't inspire you to get your butt off the couch and move around a little, we're not sure what would.
