So I wanted to talk a little bit about my experience this past weekend at the Chicago Fit Expo. I wasn’t sure how I would end up liking it, but it turned into a day that makes me want to travel to these expos all over the world. That’s doable, right?
Basically, the expo was a fitness playland. A meathead’s heaven.
I mean, only a certain kind of person gets excited when he/she receives a free bodybuilding.com shaker at the door. Woo!
I think what made me love the expo the most was just being in an environment with everyone that has the same interest. What was so amazing was that there were those that are just starting their fitness journey all the way up to established bodybuilders/black belts/instructors, you name it, and everyone in between.
There were tons of events, including seminars that bodybuilders put together, Jiu Jitsu, powerlifting and crossfit competitions, and companies selling their products and giving away samples. Then obviously there were the meet and greets, aka waiting on line for an hour for a minute spent with that person. Totally worth it though 😀
Btw, all those competitions were open to the public. As long as you registered, you were able to compete. How awesome!
Most exciting part? I got to meet some of the biggest names in the industry, along with the fitness coach that I look up to the most, Massy Arias. Unreal.
Second most exciting part? I think I’ve got my motivation back! I’m ready to get back in the gym later today and try out some of the exercises I learned this weekend. There’s nothing like a good ol’ slap in the face from being surrounded by some of the most in shape people in the world to make you amped for your next workout.
Next stop, the Olympia! Maybe, possibly? 😀
