The Fit Expo Los Angeles returned for its 11th year running this past weekend at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Taking place over the course of two days in the South Hall, this massive expo showcases all forms of fitness and athletics with live competitions, demos, workshops, seminars, and more. Visitors could view various forms of fitness and non-arena sports, such as CrossFit, weightlifting, Zumba, Parkour, wrestling, (mixed) martial arts, and more. The massive expo hall contained enough vendors to fill multiple swap meets, but once visitors got past all the vendors, they found the various demo areas strewn about the expo hall. For example, on the far east side of the hall (left from entrance), an actual CrossFit competition took place:

Elsewhere near the entrance, a Zumba fitness demo went underway, allowing visitors to actually take part in this demo.

Near the back, visitors could spectate a Brazilian jiu-jitsu competition.

The MMA Pavilion featured a variety of demos, such as the “adult jungle gym” shown at the top of this post, as well as some bars pictured below.

On the west end of the hall (right from the entrance), a power-lifting competition took place.

The multitude of vendors varied in their goods or services offered. Some offered some sort of service, such as training or consulting. Most others offered merchandise, which included apparel, accessories, equipment, supplements, and more.

Unbeknownst to me, this expo also exhibited a handful of food & beverage vendors. None of these vendors offered stereotypical health foods – they focus on what matters, such as all-natural, non-GMO, gluten-free, low-carb, and full of nutrients, especially protein. In today’s culture, people slowly learn more and more about their food, and an expo like this would smoothly educate visitors about the right food to eat to stay fit.

The Fit Expo opens their doors to all demographics of all ages, not just those in the industry or those who work out frequently. Fit people love this expo because they can keep up with latest trends and news in the fitness industry. Casual visitors like this expo because they can learn the right ways to get fit, as well as feel motivated after seeing all the fit people around. The Fit Expo occurs semiannually in California – Los Angeles in January, and San José in July. When an expo like this comes your way, consider attending to see what it truly takes to stay fit, and gain first-hand experience from people who know how to stay fit.

    I went and had a lot of fun. I didn’t see the Halo Top booth, but I love their lemon ice cream – haven’t had the others though! Lots of samples and great time seeing such a range of people who are trying to get fit or become stronger.
