Friday, 26 October 2018 - The Ticketpro Dome was abuzz with great excitement and activity as the FIBO Global Fitness Africa Festival presented by Dis-Chem Pharmacies surged into top gear. Thousands of fitness professionals, practitioners and fanatics alike descended upon the Festival and let their toned bodies do the talking at various events and branded exhibition stands.

Taking place in the Blue Wing Conference Venue at Ticketpro Dome was the FIBO Global Africa Summit in association with conference Partner Europe Active, which saw 4 international and 6 local speakers talking how to keep your business fit. The Summit  included talks on the wellness and fitness trends happening globally, how to adapt your business needs, how to keep on the right track and help business remain strong, healthy and striving. The high-quality content is built on the industry standards and was an opportunity for networking and great relationship building too.

Over at the Festival, guests at the FitTheatre had the opportunity to talk to Futurelife Dietician Elizda Hanekom who shared her knowledge of ensuring you maximise nutrition in your daily fitness routine and how easy it is to consistently ensure healthy eating on the go.

The FitKitchen was packed with participants who were treated to a Smoothie Masterclass by  Bontle Tshiole from BAAA Smoothie Bar, a Super Scoop Smoothie Session with Lisa Raleigh and how to master the art of Sexy Summer Entertaining by Christine Phillips from Health Yourself. Miss Earth 2014 and Nature’s Choice Ambassador, Ilze Saunders had the crowd salivating as she whipped up super salad Pizzas.

It was all about the Power of the Mind with Paige Coetsee who kicked off the FIBO FitStudio with an intense Yoga class and this was followed by a series of workouts from Warrior Movement, Kettle Bell Training to Move Sculpt Love and the newly developed Piloxing.

Over at the Dis-Chem Pharmacies Health & Fitness Village, business was brisk as visitors sampled and purchased health supplements from big brands  such as Biogen, Primal, USN, Muscle Tech, Garmin, Warrior and Fuel to name a few. Visitors tried on the latest range of Fitbit trackers and of course the various free sampling and spoils!

Hearts, lungs and muscles were pumping at the intense Technogym workouts and Bounce Inc showed just how important having fun during exercise is with their insane antics on the running wall.

The perfect setting to end the first day of the FIBO Global Fitness & Wellness Festival was The Fit Affair After Dark, powered by Biogen which left everyone smiling and in a good mood.
