Last Thursday the boys and I attended the launch event for FIBO Global Fitness Africa, presented by Dis-Chem Pharmacies at BOUNCE South Africa in Fourways. The world’s biggest trade show for fitness, wellness and health made its appearance in Africa for the first time last October. After a successful 2018 show, it’s no wonder that FIBO returns to the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg from 25 to 27 October 2019.
The launch event was really great and presented the opportunity to catch up with my FIBO Fit Family. Healthy snacks and drinks set the tone of what to expect now that FIBO preparations are in full force. FIBO Global Fitness Africa is about real people and real stories. It’s also about fit families and that’s why I took the boys along to the launch event.
After a brief introduction and presentation by Megan Oberholtzer and Martin Hiller, it was time to take thing to the trampolines. As BOUNCE South Africa Brand Ambassadors the boys and I were over the moon to take on what’s now become our daily playground. While Sky tackled the obstacle courses, Ash and I took on the BOUNCE Fit Class with Slim.
Last year’s festival featured 100 fitness and health exhibitors at the Ticketpro Dome which set the stage for fitness enthusiasts and professionals. Over the three days 61 free fitness classes were hosted, 22 speakers shared first-hand experience in health, wellness and fitness, 20 delicious food demonstrations and 17 athleisure fashions brands were showcased.
Expect Bigger and Better for 2019
MiFitness Games which was extremely popular will be making its return in 2019. Expect Fit Zones including FitMOVE, FitFOOD and FitWEAR. There will also be new and exciting Zones to cater for the interests of individuals passionate about leading a healthy and active lifestyle. The Dis-Chem Village offering the best in healthy living supplements and nutrition will be back.
The Dream Team
This year FIBO is delighted to announce the introduction of The Dream Team where FIBO Africa will be following the fitness journeys of ordinary South Africans seeking a healthier lifestyle. These will include The Bros, The Ladies, The New Mom, The Traveller and The Couple. Each will be given a FIBO Power Pack of trainers, nutritionists and life coaches to assist them to reach their fitness goals
I Need Your Input
Last year I was in the very shoes of the Dream Team, as the Face & Body of FIBO Global Fitness Africa as I took on a body transformation. It was a huge honor and despite my injury I went on to drop a 11kg leading up to the show, but I didn’t reach my ultimate goal.
So this is where I need your input.
- Would like me to participate in FIBO again in 2019?
- Should I perform a Meal Prep demo
- Should I perform a healthy snack demo
- Or should I take on that Body Transformation and smash it
Your feedback will be greatly appreciated. Also let us know what you would else you would love to see at FIBO this year.
