Calling all hot bodies, wannabe hot bodies and want-to-just-perve-at hot bodies – we’ve got the perfect event for all of you! The New Zealand Fitness Expo is headed this way and it’s going to be a hot and sweaty couple of days.

“Fitness is a booming industry in New Zealand,” says NZ Fitness Expo ambassador Lee-Ann Wann, of Downsize Me fame. “It’s also constantly changing and this expo will give Kiwi fitness professionals and enthusiasts a chance to get up to speed with the latest trends and knowledge – and have a blast.”
In keeping with the theme, this is not your usual expo – it’s also a workout. Free fitness classes throughout the weekend will give expo visitors the chance to try out the newest exercise trends and equipment and the latest moves in tried and tested favourites, including Zumba, Les Mills and City Fitness.
Seminars on health, nutrition, fitness and careers from some of the leading minds in the country will send visitors home with plenty of inspiration. Topics include: “The top five biggest cow-poo myths about fitness and food and how to never fall for them again” and “How to drink beer, eat chocolate and still lose weight.”
The NZ Fitness Expo is on at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 July from 10am – 6pm.
