The event was coined as 'the world’s largest and longest-running fitness education experience' and featured over 300 sessions in personal training, group fitness, cycling, mind-body and specialty areas such as nutrition and career development.
There was a fee to attend the seminars but the expo was free to the public.
I wasn't sure what to expect but I really liked how almost all the booths were interactive.
I tried balancing on an Indo Board Balance Trainer.
There was an entire section dedicated to Zumba. I discovered there is Zumba-specific clothing.
I really liked how my core was engaged in almost every exercise.
At the end of the workout, we were challenged with a push-up contest. I somehow managed to squeeze out 30 push-ups while suspended.
I spent some time spinning and leaning from side to side on RealRyder indoor cycling machine.
The RealRyder was designed to mimic a outdoor bike with an articulating frame that allows it to steer, lean, and feel like an actual road bike.
I'd have to say my favorite workout device was the Core Fitness Roller.
The Core Fitness Roller combines rolling, balance, and resistance. You can stand, sit, or lie down on the roller and use the resistance bands.
Since balance and strength training are definitely my weak areas, the Core Fitness Roller really appealed to me. I also liked how it can double as a regular foam roller.
When they demonstrated how the unit was completely self-contained, I got even more excited. They simply removed the the end cap, removed the transport strap, pulled the extension arm and the Variable Resistance Module (one unit) from the roller, and then slid the extension arm with VRM into the hollow core of the roller.
Once everything is packed inside the unit, there's a convenient strap that allows you to carry it on your shoulder.
I'm seriously considering investing in a Core Fitness Roller.
