5 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Miss Fitness Expo FIBO
If you live in Joburg, you’ve probably heard about FIBO (Fitness Boom, if you were wondering) or seen a poster. But if you still aren’t sure exactly what it is, basically you need to know that FIBO is a global fitness expo that launched in SA for the first time last year. It’s a showcase of all things fitness related, from workouts to gym equipment to nutrition. And it’s returning to the TicketPro Dome in Joburg from 25-27 October. Here are some of the highlights that we’re looking forward to…
FIBO: All the latest trends
One of the things we love most about fitness is how much cool innovation is going on all the time. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, there’s a hot new workout or scientific breakthrough that changes the game. FIBO is your chance to check out all the latest developments in the world of fitness before anyone else. And you’re not just there to look, either – you can try things out at interactive stands. So dress comfortably and swap those sneaks for trainers!
Compete and win!
So much more than an expo, FIBO is also a celebration of fitness. Spend loads of time in the gym and want to show off your hard work? There are various competitions going on alongside the expo itself that celebrate fitness in all its various forms.
If you’re functionally fit, you can enter a mixed team (two men; two women) into the MiFitness Games and test your functional fitness, CrossFit style. Really big into strength training? Enter the Strongman Competition. Super sculpted? The Body Beautiful Competition is for you! Plus there are fun fitness challenges for kids and corporates, too! And if you don’t want to take part, you can cheer for your favourite competitors from the audience. Go on, enter here.
Learn to make delicious healthy food
Trying to eat healthily and don’t even know where to start? Live cooking demos in the FIBO FitFOOD Kitchen are your chance to learn how to make smoothies, vegan dishes, healthy cocktails and calorie-conscious meals that don’t taste like diet food. Our kind of eating.
The amazing line-up of speakers at FIBO will give you all the inspiration you need to get back on track with your health and fitness. Whether you’re a businessman trying to find time to work out or trying to launch your personal training side hustle, there’s something for you. And everyone in between!
Bring the kids
No need to try and find a baby sitter if you and your partner want to go together. The kids’ zone at FIBO has fun, fit activities and competitions for little ones ranging from babies to teenagers. All activities are age specific and designed to encourage a love of movement from a young age. The hardest part will be getting them to leave.
