Promising to be bigger and better, FitCon MNL, the premiere fitness and health convention in the Philippines, ushers in its second year with a plethora of activities on May 18-20.

To take place at Green Sun in Makati City, 15 industry experts from around the globe will be gracing the convention to share their trade secrets through a series of interactive workshops and classes. Delegates will have the opportunity to learn about the latest in various topics including nutrition, sport science, the business of personal training, physique transformation, and workout programs for special populations.

Each day of FitCon MNL|5 is jampacked with different activities designed to teach delegates how to get the most out of exercises, prevent and address injuries and develop their careers for success – just to name a few.

Also, for the first time, an expo hall will be opened to the public — perfect not only for fitness and health enthusiasts, but also for anyone interested in the latest trends in the industry. Visitors can look forward to finding the best health and fitness gear and equipment, food and nutrition, services, and venues. Also at the expo hall will be the Activity Center, with hourly master classes showcasing the newest exercises and programs, such as bodyART, Bosu, Kamagon, Piloxing, Stott Pilates, Surge, TriggerPoint foam rolling, yoga, and Zumba. Experts in various fields will also be giving talks on best sports practices, more efficient workouts, cooking healthy, and looking good.

“We’ve been to fitness conventions around the world and they’ve always taught us so much for us to use in our careers,” says Rica Rodriguez, one of the founders of FitCon MNL|5 and half of Dynamic Duo Inc., “We wanted to bring the same to the Philippines and see the local fitness industry become globally competitive.”

Three keynote speakers will be at FitCon MNL|5: Philippine fitness icon Vivian Zapanta; author and diet coach to the stars Nadine Tengco; and Glenn Ang, founder/director of RAW Active Singapore and 2017 AFC Personal Trainer of the Year.  Zapanta, Tengco, and Ang will also conduct workshops throughout the three days of FitCon MNL|5.
