The Fit Expo celebrated ten years in Los Angeles by once again putting together two days of memorable events and a packed house of fitness enthusiasts who left wishing this event was longer than two days. The Fit Expo is always the perfect way to kick off the New Year and you can be sure that January 19 and 20 at the Los Angeles Convention Center caused a number of people to raise the New Year Resolutions to a whole new level.
Trying to pack everything in to the two day event could leave needing a break, the question was beginning Saturday morning where do you start? There is always a mad rush to get to the BodyBuilding.com booth to get some of the latest fitness product samples while also getting to meet plenty of fitness celebrities. Fitness royalty was everywhere and it would hard to find bigger names than Jay Cutler, Ronnie Coleman and Lou Ferrigno all under one roof. Mix in some of the strongest people in the world showing off just how strong they truly are along with the craze that is CrossFit at every age level and then almost any type of fitness class you could imagine to try out first hand. Let’s not forget about learning the power of Chia and how you can make a simple and amazing dessert that is great for your body. There truly was more to do and see than two days allowed.
The Fit Expo is like Halloween for the fit, trick-or-treating from booth to booth, finding samples of old favorites as well as the latest releases. CytoSport was giving out samples of their performance Energy Drops as well as well as their new protein shake Evolve that is only 110 calories. VPX unleashed their new drink Bang 357, a combination of creatine, caffeine and BCAA. It wasn't just the name brands that were at the Fit Expo, but a number of great new lines were introduced.
