If there is one PR agency that I adore, it’s Square One. Not only is Director, Sarah O’Brien the nicest person in the world to deal with but she also knows what makes the author of a fitness blog squeal with delight at the mention of a fitness expo.
I was excited to attend the Australian Fitness Expo in Melbourne last weekend with a good mate of mine and upcoming PT, Rhian Eyre from The Only Way is Melbourne.
I attended the event last year and was once again blown away by the enormity of the fitness industry. From protein powders (and there were a few), to bright colored sports gear, to state of the art technology. If it was fitness related, it was there.
We got there shortly after the doors opened and spent the next six hours doing what we do best,
schmoozing, perving, networking.
This year brought with it a couple of unforgettable highlights. I interviewed Australian leading Dietitian and Nutritionist – Susie Burrell. She was fabulously down to earth, extremely passionate and undeniably honest. Having recently handed in my nutrition assessment, the timing could not have been more perfect. She had some insightful responses. (Blog to follow).
Now if anyone knows me well, they will know that I am a huge fan of Michelle Bridges. Always have been, always will be. I did her first ever 12WBT and loved it. I then attempted to do it again after baby no two, but with very little sleep, it was never going to happen.
With Winter approaching, I decided to sign up to her 12WBT in May just to keep me on track and to stop me from being led astray by those winter comfort foods. So you can imaging my excitement when I received this text message from Sarah at the expo on Sunday.
It’s not hard to see why Michelle Bridges is an absolute superstar and leader in her field. Did you know that she has helped weight enthusiasts shift over 2 million kilograms across the globe? Pretty impressive if you ask me. She worked eight of us so damn hard that we are still feeling the effects of it three days later!
This event would have to be one of my favourite events in the calendar year. It’s the weekend I look forward to where I can enjoy some me time without the kids and lose myself in the world of fitness.
For those wanting to go to the Australian Fitness Expo in other states, they are happening later in the year. If you are passionate about health and fitness, this expo is a must. Check out the website for details.
