FIBO Global Fitness Africa is Back and I Need Your Input

Last Thursday we attended the launch event for FIBO Global Fitness Africa at BOUNCE South Africa in Fourways. The world’s biggest fitness trade show made its appearance in Africa for the first time last October. After a successful 2018 show, 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 presentation by Megan Oberholtzer and Martin Hiller, it was time to take things to the trampolines. As BOUNCE South Africa’s Brand Ambassadors the boys and I were excited to take to 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 exhibitors at the Dome. Which set the stage for fitness enthusiasts and professionals. Fitsters were treated to

  • 20 delicious food demonstrations

I Need Your Input

In 2018 I was the Face & Body of FIBO Global Fitness Africa. I took on a body transformation and smashed it despite my injury. I went on to drop a 11kg leading up to the show, but I didn’t reach my ultimate goal.

      Thanks for believing in me. appreciate your input and you taking the time to read my post

  2. take on that Body Transformation and smash it

      And #transformations are such an intense thing. DId attend FIBO last year

  3. I think you should do everything because if there’s anyone who can do it, it’s YOU! You need to bottle your energy and sell it because we could all do with a daily shot of that magic.

    If I had to choose an activity, I would say go for the transformation. If you’re anything like me (and I think we are in this respect) I need a very specific, challenging goal to push out of the comfort zone to make it a reality. You did it before and you’ll do it again x10 to make a bigger impact. And if you have 5 minutes, you could smash out a cooking demo 😉
