Attending a health and/or fitness conference has been on my bucket list for as long as I’ve been a blogger and next month, I’m finally getting the chance to scratch it off the list. I first heard about canfitpro world fitness expo last year, but I couldn’t attend since the registration date had already passed. So, this year I made a point to schedule some time to head to Toronto for the expo.
The biggest reason that I’m so excited about attending canfitpro world fitness expo is that it manages to cater to both fitness professionals and fitness/nutrition enthusiasts. The fact that, with online registration, you can get free admission to the Expo Hall where most of the fun stuff happens, is a pretty close second.
At the Expo Hall, there’ll be three different stages – lecture, activity, demo and nutrition – with different speakers at each stage and you’ll be able to sample products, demo equipment, shop some of the best deals in the fitness industry, and, my personal fav, attend free education sessions in personal training, group fitness, mind-body, nutrition, and more.
You can find out more about the Expo Hall Stage Sessions here, but I also wanted to share a few that I’m most interested in attending and why.
1. Top 10 Gluten Free Pantry Essentials
I’m not gluten free and hopefully I’m never forced to go gluten free, but at least one of my friends actively avoids gluten. So, as a person who loves to cook for others, I’m really interested in attending this session and learning more about gluten free eating.
2. Paleo, Low Carb, Vegan, If It Fits Your Macros – Which Diet is Best?
This one is of purely academic interest. After going meat free for a week last month, I’ve been really interested in different diets and have been thinking of trying out different ones. I’m hoping that I can get some insight during this session.
3. Get Pep from the Prep! Paleo Meal Prepping
Basically the same as above. I’m not paleo, but I am interested in learning about the diet and my meal prep game could probably use some work.
4. Protein Supplements – The good, the bad, the ugly
I’ve been on the hunt for a new protein shake for a couple months now, but all the research and articles on protein supplements on the interwebs can get a little confusing. Hopefully this session can clear some of that up for me.
5. Socacize® Fitness
Because I’m Trinidadian and they’ve combined soca and fitness. There’s no way I’m missing this one.
6. Body Positive
Body image is something we all obsesses about and I’m interested to hear about this from someone who’s overcome the struggle.
7. Tosca’s Top 10 Clean Eating Foods
I’m not sure if I ever mentioned this on the blog before, but Tosca Reno was a huge part of my initial foray into healthier eating. One of my roommates at the time was obsessed with all things Clean Eating and, after living with her for 8 months, the Tosca/Clean Eating obsession rubbed off on me. So to say that I’m excited about this session is a gross understatement.
8. Nutrition 101
Because we all need to go back to basics sometimes
9. Health by Chocolate
Do I even need words?
10. POUND – Rockout. Workout.™
Attending a POUND workout is something that I recently added to my fitness bucket list, so I was hella excited to see this on the list.
canfitpro was awesome enough to offer one lucky ready a free one-day registration (value of $388 per registration and includes access to the Expo Hall). Details on how to enter are below, and spoiler alert: I’ll be hosting TWO more of these giveaways before August 10th!
