A weekend expo of high energy activities, noise and buzz: the Brisbane Health & Fitness Expo certainly pulled in the crowds, reports Editor Maggie Coleman.

Several halls in the Convention of Exhibition Centre at South Brisbane rang with encouragement to try the staggering number of activities, pit your strength and endurance against everyone else, taste the many samples of drinks, bars and powders, eyeball the many celebrities and perhaps take a class...

The halls featured stages and arenas in the centre and corners, plus many brands such as Eye Fitness with group training, the EHP Labs, Live Out Loud Foundation, the Schween Machine stand, and the MixFit stand offered yet more opportunities to try.

Crowds flocked to see the body-builders demonstrating the results of their efforts on the muscle and model stage, weight -lifters competed in their events and the strongest men brought gasps from the fascinated crowds of all ages, although the young and very fit in the latest activewear dominated the turnout.

Anyone who left the centre without the determination to try a new sport, class, acitivity for themselves cannot have been paying attention, and judging by the huge numbers queueing up to do just that, there was massive enthusiasm to have-a-go.

The two-day Brisbane show was the last in the series of four health and fitness expos organised around the nation by Diversified Communications Australia, and co-located with the QFit fitness professional conference.

The annual programme includes the leading event, held in Melbourne in April, with the Perth, Sydney and Brisbane events, closely following each other in late September and October.
