Fitness & Health Expo 2016 + GIVEAWAY

Are you ready for the Fitness & Health Expo to come back around to Melbourne for 2016?
I am. I love heading out for the day to get re-inspired, re-motivated, pick up some great bargains and meet some of the industry fitness icons in person. 

For quite some years now I have attended the Fitness & Health Expo year after year and it's something I always strongly recommended going along too. Last year I was able to attend both in my hometown state Melbourne and then again in Sydney.

Training with Sam Philisaire at the Fitness & Health Expo Sydney 2016.

2016 is going to bring together some fantastic features for you to take advantage of at the expo:
  • Celebrity & Expert Training Arena – featuring free group training sessions, open workouts and Q&As with some of the biggest names in fitness and sport today including Amanda Bisk, Laura Henshaw, Shannan Ponton, Simeon Panda and the HIIT Mum Colette McShane.

Love a good Gusiness World Record attempt? Last year in Sydney, Michelle Bridges did the largest fit ball class, this year The HIIT Mum will be attempting to do the record for the most number of people simultaneously doing burpees - yes, the beloved burpees. Surprisingly I can say I am not too fussed when it comes to burpees but they are tiring.

  2. My bootcamp has recently shut down and I'm devo!! I need to visit the Fitness & Health expo to find a new solution before my fitness disappears and weight finds me again!!

  3. i need some extra motivation :)

  4. I am going to put attending a health and fitness expo on my list of things to do. I have never been to one exclusively for that purpose. However, as a general rule I enjoy attending expos because of the amount of information that you can get. It is like a period of total immersion and you leave much more informed.
