Fitness and Health Expos reveal the latest industry innovations

Fitness and Health Expos reveal the latest industry innovations
October 6, 2015

After successfully wrapping up the Fitness & Health Expo in Perth, the fitness industry’s major exhibition is moving on to Sydney and Brisbane in the coming weeks with a range of new local, national and international fitness trends and products set to be unveiled.

Attendees at each of the Fitness & Health Expos can see the latest gym equipment, accessories, exercise classes and gadgets and meet industry leaders and the organisations behind them, including:

Submerged spin. Aquaspin is a revolutionary fitness technique, which combines the efficient principles of classical stationary indoor cycling (spinning) with the healthy and soothing powers of water. Aquaspin uses the benefits of water buoyancy and resistance to make the exercise motions and sequences gentle yet vigorous.
Tread on sand. SandTrek brings the beach to the gym by providing a natural walk-on-sand experience to the treadmill surface. User’s feet touch the sand and sink into it giving you the exact experience of running on a beach.
Jumpstarting fitness routines. For facilities looking to offer a new challenge for their clients, Kangoo Power requires a pair of specially designed bouncing shoes, and offers an  exercise class is designed to challenge the whole body by building muscular strength and cardio-respiratory endurance simultaneously. Each movement is designed to focus on core stability, ensuring a balanced workout that will challenge even the fittest. The shoes also help to maximise effort while preventing damaging impact to the joints.
Friendly fitness tracker. Reign is a new fitness and recovery tracker that intuitively gets to know a user’s body better the longer they wear it. The 'Go-Zone' feature lets users know how ready they are to be active each day and gives a corresponding activity goal. Recovery is just as important, and with this fitness tracker users will know exactly when to smash out a personal best, or tone it down a little with a more realistic goal. 

Protein to go. A protein shake served at the touch of a button is now possible with the new Fuel Your Body vending machines from Quality Vend which will let people choose from a pre or post workout protein drink in their flavour of choice. 
Packaged-up paleo. Home-delivered paleo meals from Fit and Fresh, you can now get your paleo dinner delivered right to your door, fresh not frozen.
Get uber fit. It’s just like Uber, except instead of connecting customers with a nearby car, this app connects clients to a nearby personal trainer. PT4YOU allows people to book in to their nearest PT, whether they’re in their home town or travelling interstate.
Workout like a warrior. Persian Yoga was developed millennia ago as a complete, yet simple, physical conditioning system to forge warriors out of ordinary people. It is focused on developing great strength, endurance, flexibility and agility (the usual suspects) as well as other physical skills required by martial artists and warriors, like coordination, rhythm, balance and synchronicity. 
The practice of Persian Yoga involves dynamic flexibility postures done in combination with calisthenics in a series of uninterrupted fluid movements on a Shena (Push-up board) and Circular Strength Training with Meels (Persian Clubs) as well as Resistance training with the Sang (Heavy Shields).

Fitness & Health Expo Director Shaun Krenz is pleased with the performance of the four events, stating “at each and every show, we’re discovering more of the latest developments to hit the industry. It’s great to see many locally born innovations this year as well.

“New technology and novel new ideas will make for two very interesting Expos in Sydney and Brisbane.”
