Big name athletes attend Health and Fitness Expo

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - The Health and Fitness Expo attracted thousands to the Hynes Convention Center on Saturday, including big name celebrities and athletes.

On game day, Vince Wilfork is the heart and soul of the Patriots defense. Off the field, he gets the word out about a subject near and dear to his heart.

"My whole life I'm affected with diabetes and it was kind of a no-brainer with me is to help people to be healthy and active," Wilfork said.
   
Sudbury's Simon Shnapir dazzled at the Sochi Olympics and came home with a bronze medal. He's back on the ice, training hard hoping to represent Team USA in 2018.

"Between the competition and being with the other athletes...once you've done that once you want to do it as many times as possible," Shnapir said.

Soccer star Lauren Sesselman won Olympic bronze for Team Canada. She's also helping people meet their fitness goals with her program "Fit as a Pro."

"They're only 10 minutes long and make them longer if you want. They're high intense cardio. Make them easy or hard as you want," she said.

Diamond Dallas Page slammed his way to stardom as a professional wrestler. Now he's traded the ring for a mat and DDP yoga.

"Take either one of my feet, pull it over my head and have a conversation with you. This is core strength and flexibility at a different level. This is 58 years young!" he said.

Health, fitness and sports go hand in hand and these athletes will be back to the expo on Sunday.
