ABILENE, Texas -

The 9th annual Sports and Fitness Expo kicked off on February 1st at the Abilene Civic Center.

Companies such as Abilene Martial Arts, Herbalife and Beamer’s Gymnastics entertained viewers with 30-minute demonstrations.

Vendors also handed out free gym passes and information.

Despite the name, Sadie Zamora, sports information coordinator, said you don’t have to be considered “healthy” to attend the event next year.

"It's not really just about being healthy in a physical sense, like we said we have insurance and things of that nature so we're really trying to market anyone in Abilene that's interested in overall becoming a better person and living a healthier lifestyle," Zamora said.
