The inspiration you want.
Nothing’s more inspiring than watching some of Australia’s fittest sportspeople in action. A number of live sporting events will take place across three days including:
• The West Coast Super Show – a Natural Bodybuilding and Sports Modelling competition, hosted by the International Natural Bodybuilding Association (INBA). This is part of the largest event in Australian natural competition history with the creation of the INBA/PNBA Australian Elite Pro Qualifier League. Competitors at this event can qualify to compete for a chance to receive return flights and accommodation to the US for the INBA/PNBA Natural Olympia.
• The Australian Raw Powerlifting Championships and International Pacific Powerlifting Invitational, reserved for the strongest men and women in the world, including current Superheavyweight World Champions who will attempt to set new records.
• The Arena will be an action-packed area featuring a Super Squad Competition – a fun new concept for functional fitness lovers where strengths are celebrated and teams can share the load of skills, weight and conditioning. Group Training Sessions and Celebrity Open Workouts will also be a key feature in The Arena.
• The Best of 5 Armwrestling Supermatch Series – Armwrestling matches between rivals or like matched opponents. This best-of-five battle of raw strength, technique and stamina will be held on the Main Stage and facilitated by the Australian Armwrestling Federation.
For those considering a career in fitness or wanting to further develop a fitness business, there is plenty of support on offer from leading fitness industry training organisations and business service suppliers. The Expo is also co-located with Western Australian Fitness Industry Conference (WAFIC), the fitness industry convention offering educational sessions delivered by the industry’s thought leaders.
