SATURDAY, 27 October 2018 – As day two of FIBO Global Fitness Africa presented by Dis-Chem Pharmacies drew to a close, visitors were treated to a jam-packed day of all things health, wellness and fitness with world class events taking place at the Festival. The day started with The FitAffair Sunrise Edition presented by Fitness Magazine which set the tone for all fitness enthusiasts to feel motivated and inspired.

The FitKitchen was abuzz with well-known foodies demonstrating how easy it is to pack in the nutrients and whip up deliciously healthy dishes: from custom made super smoothies to a Biltong Peppadew and Quinoa Bowl and to feed that sweet tooth (without the calories) – a cacao pancake.

The FitTheatre was alive with discussion and topics ranging from Rookie Mom, My Post Pregnancy Weight Loss Journal by Wardah Harley, to an open and honest heartfelt talk by Zinhle Masango about her journey From Domestic Abuse to Fitness Queen. The thought-provoking talks were all about living positively and conquering your fears, coupled with the benefits of a healthy body and mind.

The MyFitness Games were intensely competitive as mixed male and female teams battled it out to become the standout functional fitness team of the year.

What would a Wellness & Health Fitness Festival be without some serious workouts – visitors had a choice of over 20 classes they could attend for free. At the FIBO FitStudio, workouts included Metafit Pro, Barre, HIIT Explosion, Strong by Zumba and Booty Camp. Over at the Origin Fitness Studio an explosion of workouts were on offer from Gunning, to Speed Kinetix and Lisa Raleigh’s AB workout and Rebounding..

The crowds were in awe at the NPL stand as some of South Africa`s top power lifters and strongmen demonstrated their amazing feats of strength including pulling the NPL Arctic Conversion Truck Fleet!

Our very own fitfluencer, Natasha Kisten-Skuce AKA Fit Like Mummy, showcased her holistic and inspiring journey from fat to fit in her big Reveal which took place on the FitWear Catwalk.

Day 2 at FIBO Global Fitness Africa presented by Dis-Chem Pharmacies has been actioned packed with a variety of multi-disciplined events designed to enhance your fitness and health experience.
