Tullahoma Welcome SignGet Fit! Tullahoma is pleased to announce that they are planning for the fourth Community Health Fair and Fitness Expo Saturday, March 14, from 9 am to noon at Northgate Mall.  Admission is free and visitors will find fitness and nutrition tips, health screenings and much more. Please join in and learn how you can move more, eat well and get fit. The purpose of Get Fit! Tullahoma is to encourage more healthy and active lifestyles among Tullahoma and Coffee County citizens. Unfortunately, Coffee County citizens rank 38 out of 95 counties in our level of fitness ( More than a third of Tennesseans and Coffee County residents are obese, and the trend needs to be reversed. “Tullahoma’s overall fitness is a reflection of each individual’s fitness,” said Community Development Director, Winston Brooks. “We are inviting anyone interested in displaying their products or services that relate to health and fitness to take part. There is opportunity to have a booth and we are looking for people interested in doing short demonstrations on stage.” Visitors will have the opportunity to speak with local doctors, take advantage of free health screenings, and obtain other preventative health care information.
“Learning how to manage diabetes effectively is one of the keys to maintaining optimal health,” said HRMC’s Marketing Director, Ava Lynch. “We, along with the City of Tullahoma, other healthcare professionals and vendors, want to provide the community with the knowledge, tools and resources needed to manage diabetes.  By implementing lifestyle changes, others will have information and resources which could help them prevent or reduce their risk for type 2 diabetes.”
“One of the goals with this Expo is to highlight all the different types of fitness activities available in our community,” said Mayor Lane Curlee. “I want to encourage citizens to make everyday changes to eat healthier, be more physically active and quit tobacco use.”
If you have a fitness related product or service, please consider hosting an exhibitor table. There is no charge. Please contact Winston Brooks if you are interested in being a vendor. Booths can be reserved up until February 18. He can be reached at 455-2648 or
