What is LifeStyleEXPO?
LifeStyleEXPO is a newly packaged health expo from LifeStyleTV.
The concept is to offer people a free “health
check up” and to reach people’s felt needs
where they are.
A LifeStyleEXPO is arranged (3-5 days)
at a local shopping center, or similar venue, and offers
people free health screenings, tests, information and
counseling by professionals on everything from diabetes
to weight management.
A LifeStyleEXPO will feature screenings for blood pressure,
lung capacity, body-fat analysis, cholesterol, glucose,
Harvard step test, Alameda County computerized health-age
appraisals and free anti-stress massages.
LifeStyleEXPO is focusing on eight stated main
factors related to disease prevention and physical and
mental health. These are: nutrition, exercise, water,
sun, temperance, air, rest and trust in divine power.
Each factor is addressed in detail at the health expo
using a combination of colour posters with up-to-date
medical information, screening tests and health counseling.
Activities at each station:
Sunlight – Blood pressure test
Nutrition – Cholesterol and glucose test
Air – Lung capacity test
Exercise – Harvard step test
Water – Two glasses of water
Rest – Chair massage
Temperance – Body fat test
Health age – Health age test

“All the volunteers are so helpful, and
get paid a penny. I’m very impressed, and found the information
professional and useful.”
