Hello fellow readers,
Today’s post will be on the above mentioned, the fitness show. For those who haven’t heard of it, it’s an expo that runs during the entire weekend showcasing the latest fitness classes, products and shows. The show was on the last week of April. I only attended one day due to a prior committment on Saturday. Anyways, here’s what happened:
I arrived at ICC Sydney 9.30am and had to walk over to the area on the other side of the building whic took 10 minutes. Doors didn’t open till 9.50am and then it was straight to the commando fit workout which I paid when I purchased the ticket at the same time. It was straight to the workout in the prana arena after filling in waiver forms. The workout itself started with emphasis on form, technique and warm up with mobililty exercises and the straight into the workout. The workout was circuit based using a tube equivalent barbell with weights. Power clean and press, front squat and then it was burpees hopover. Can’t exactly remember the precise details as it happened so fast and I was in the moment. Sweaty and pumped after and ready to explore the fitness show!
We had to rush out of the arena due to another fitness session F45 starting straight after we finished. Bumped into two gym friends who were about to commence the session. I managed to get the photo with him :). He was taller in person though. Next it was a mission to head into the bathroom to change clothes and then I proceeded to see a fitness model / bodybuilding show running the whole day: ICN bodybuilding. All these competitiors on stage with heaps of fake tan and ripped muscles. I just wanted to see what is was all about and then I walked around for 2.5 hours to the booths and testing samples. I went shopping and came out with this (some of the below items were free):
I also took a photo with a fitness model by the name of Lauren Simpson. There were others there like Jeff Said and Calum Van Mogen but their lines were insane for their photos. Next time.
More food samples below:
Mind you I purchased a 6pack fitness backpack which carries 3 meals on the go and having to lug this pink bag was fun the whole day:
I stayed for the afternoon ICN show and managed to meet Olivia, one of the competitors there and follower on Instagram.
There was powerlifting and decided to watch for a bit and bumped into another gym buddy.
After that I was super hungry and purchsed a Muscle Direct meal. It was standard to be honest. I then purchased a tuna roll and a cider, which I prefered eating :).
Anyways, it was a blast but I needed to go both days as one wasn’t enough to see everything. In fact there were a few workouts on Saturday only that I wanted to go to but as I mentioned. I had something on.
After splurging some major $$$, it was time to head home.
That is all I have to say about the fitness show. Will I ever go again? A definite must but I will make sure to have the weekend booked out :).
