Mindful that building a healthy business in the fitness industry is made easier with knowledge, options and a competitive edge, the 2016 Australian Fitness & Health Expo is aiming to provide attendees with the latest new gym equipment, exercises classes and training accessories along with plenty of positive ‘fitsporation’ and networking opportunities for those who live, breathe and work in fitness.

To be held from 29th April to 1st May at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, the largest fitness and health event of its kind in the southern hemisphere will present opportunities to try out gym equipment, touch and test products, trial different classes, chat to the designers behind some of the best brands in fitness plus meet fitness idols and listen to the latest industry developments from respected experts.

Key business features of the 2016 Australian Fitness & Health Expo will include:
