Halfstack Magazine Partnering with Crossfit 630 to Host Health Expo
By: Vlad Moldavskiy 04/24/2014
The synergy between Halfstack Magazine and Crossfit 630 may be the key to longevity. Chicago-based Halfstack Magazine is partnering up with box gym Crossfit 630 to host the Health Expo on May 3 from 10am to 2pm at Crossfit 630 in Naperville. The Health Expo will focus on spreading health and fitness information from its featured speakers and will include fitness and athletic merchandise vendors, goodie bags, demonstrations, and a raffle.
Halfstack is a lifestyle magazine that focuses on obtainable fashion while embracing the finer things, like art and the talented individuals that create it. It appears that Halfstack’s motto is that there is some great stuff out there (and they’ll gladly tell you what it is), and you can incorporate it into your life. This also seems to be the message behind the Health Expo: there are many different ways to get and stay fit, and you can incorporate them into your life.
It’s no wonder that Halfstack chose to partner with Crossfit 630. Crossfit 630 describes its program as one “that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive.” Crossfit 630 has more than 300 members, but this event is open to everyone - and who knows, you may be a Crossfit 630 member by the end of the day.
Crossfit 630 and Halfstack Magazine’s Health Expo will feature keynote speakers Marla Sarris, blogger of PaleoPorn.com, Lauren Rippy, a local endurance trainer who will be holding a running clinic, and Nick Wernimont, the owner and CEO of Factor75. Lauren Rippy is the head coach of the Aurora University Lacrosse Team and a veteran triathlete. She will discuss barefoot and natural running. Nick Wernimont is a chef and author in addition to being the founder of Factor75. He will be talking about eating right for optimal performance and results.
