Convention & more at FIBO: Plenty of action and information for coaches
Balázs Füzessy is only one of the many international Trainer at the DFAV Convention of FIBO 2011.
As the world's largest fitness trade show, FIBO offers a unique overview over industry developments and products. It therefore already had a lot to offer to coaches in the past. With a large number of innovations in 2011, the trade show will now cater even better to the needs of personal coaches, presenters and instructors travelling to FIBO from the world over.
Innovations from all parts of the world
Innovations - you could find no better motto for FIBO 2011 than this. Innovations are a salient characteristic of the Leading International trade Show for Fitness, Wellness and Health which will take place in Essen from 14 to 17 April. FIBO Project Director Olaf Tomscheit is pleased: "Companies from all parts of the world now take advantage of FIBO to stage the world premiere for their new products, and that makes the trade show the undisputed largest presentation of innovations in the industry." More than 560 companies from over 35 countries will present themselves to more than 53,000 visitors - 34,000 of these trade visitors - from more than 100 countries. FIBO therefore clearly continues on a growth course. Whether it is Power Plate with a new vibrating bike, Multipower presenting a completely new series of products or Technogym with a medical fitness device - there is a long list of exhibitors with product innovations.

Learning the latest moves from the world's best presenters? FIBO makes it possible and once again offers space for top events for coaches and fitness enthusiasts on all days of the trade show: at the International DFAV Convention in Hall 5, visitors can learn from international top presenters like Jessica Exposito, Balázs Füzessy, Per Markussen or Jutta Schuhn about the latest choreographies. At the same time the DFAV Convention is getting more and more international: The FIBO Team has received registrations from coaches from all parts of the world. For registration and more information go to www.fibo.de. Besides the DFAV Convention, Hall 5 also houses the national Register of Coaches. Together with its partners DFAV, DFLV and the new partner IFFA, the organisation is always available for questions and looking forward to welcoming visitors.
FOR FUN Cycling Festival with up to 1000 participants at new location
Up to 1000 indoor cyclists pedalling in sync: that's possible only at FIBO! For the seventh time already, the big FIT FOR FUN Cycling Festival will take place here. The popular event will have a new home: participants can now exercise right next to Hall 1 near the South Entrance. Here the "Deutschland" room offers perfect lighting and sound conditions and a pleasant atmosphere for the athletes. Also new: all bicycles will be supplied by the Tomahawk company this year. On Saturday, Tomahawk offers several sessions for all performance levels. Whether hobby athlete or coach, individuals or whole teams: there will be something for everyone. One highlight will of course be the big Cycling Marathon taking place on Sunday 17 April. And on the FIBO Friday, people can work up a sweat here for a good cause during the cycling event in aid of the Tour of Hope. The participants make an important contribution to helping children with cancer: in 2010, the respectable sum of 8000 euro was raised!
Celebrity coach live on the ZUMBA stage
In addition to FIBOevent the trade show offers other highlights for coaches. Hall 6 and with it FIBOactive keeps on growing. Spectacular show acts and a huge variety of shopping possibilities: this is not just a place for looking on but also for becoming actively involved and testing the new fitness trends right on site. Once again, many familiar as well as new stars will present themselves on the ZUMBA stage. It will be exciting to see the brand-new design of the stage which will present itself with a different look this year. A special highlight will be Hollywood celebrity coach Harley Pasternak. He coaches stars like Oscar-nominated Natalie Portman, model and actress Eva Mendez, rapper LL Cool J or actress and Bond girl Halle Berry. Harley Pasternak will demonstrate to FIBO visitors how they, too, can get as fit as the Hollywood stars - from Thursday to Saturday on stage, in interviews and autograph sessions.

Things will get really hot again when Tanya Beardsley enters the stage with her inspiring Zumba troupe. This dance trend from the US, which started its triumphal course through Europe at FIBO and is going as strong as ever, combines Latin rhythms and dance steps with aerobics moves. The right outfit is available right next to the stage: here ZUMBA presents the latest Zumba wear.
More shopping is offered in Hall 6 by, among others, Intersport and Sportlädchen (the Little Sports Shop). Opposite Sportlädchen, MBT presents shoes which provide a body workout even when the wearer is walking normally. In the enlarged martial arts area, visitors can find out about the latest trends. KWON will again bring martial arts teams to appear on the KWON show stage. New: the finalists of the big KWON Show Stars contest will also perform here - next to superstars like Michael Möller and Chloe Bruce.
Back again after the 2010 success: Realpulse. The team will not only demonstrate the spectacular acrobatic trend sport Parkour but also, with its "Jump and Run" project, worlds of movement which are increasingly incorporated in physical education in schools. The OM Sports Model Casting will take place at FIBO for the third time already. Anybody interested in becoming a sports model can apply directly with the OM Sports Model Agency in Hall 6.
