BUSINESSES from all over the county took stands at the Kerry Health, Fitness and Beauty Expo in the Fels Point Hotel on Saturday.

Billed as the first expo of its kind in Kerry, there were over 60 exhibitors on the day with numerous demonstrations and workshops.

Linda Flanagan of Zumba Salsa Kerry who held her own workshops while there was also Yoga with Linda O’Shea from Shanti Therapi, a demonstration of Shotokan Karate, Pole Fitness, Pilates With Marie Townsend, Chakradance with Elaine Clancy, nutrition advice, health screening and much more at the free event.

Between the expo, the Tralee marathon and the ‘active’ theme to the St Patrick’s Day parade, it’s certainly been a health-conscious few days for the town.
