FitRock Health Expo

Are you ready? A brand new concept to the Island, the FitRock Health Expo is an exciting new health and fitness event, inspiring and motivating fitness enthusiasts and health conscious people.

Set in the Dome of Queens Hall at Fort Regent Leisure Centre, FitRock will provide a direct platform for health and fitness companies to connect with the Jersey Public. Welcoming over 24 exhibitors from all genres of the health industry, FitRock really provides something for everyone, covering the full spectrum of products, services and athletes.

Offering something for anyone looking to improve their lifestyle, the show provides a premier visitor experience with demonstrations, taster sessions, talks from industry experts, an extensive exhibition, interactive feature areas and live competitions.

FitRock has sponsored a number of local athletes including Liam McGeary (MMA World Champion), Tania Rodrigues (Miss Channel Islands 2014), Gemma Dawkins (Commonwealth and Island Games Runner) and Lucy O'Sullivan (International GB and Island Games Archer).  Some of the athletes will be at the event to speak to the public about their journeys and inspire budding athletes.

Gemma Dawkins will also be giving talks on the main stage at the event on nutrition and healthy living.  The main stage has a jam packed schedule with live fitness and dance demonstrations, educational talks, charity fund raising stunts and much more!  

The main stage will also host the FitRock Factor Competition.  This is a fitness model search designed to find the best local talent. The show is the first of its kind on the island, with an array of industry experts and audience reactions to judge the show live including Miss Channel Islands 2014, Tania Rodrigues, at the event and announce the female and male winner at the end of each day.  The girl's competition takes place at 1:30pm on Saturday and the guy's follow them at the same time on Sunday.

The show is judged 50% on physique and 50% on whether the competitor has the 'FitRock Factor, so personality, presentation and stage presence are all key to success.  The winners will be crowned and rewarded with a bundle of prizes as well as a contract with FitRock to be the exclusive models for the 2016 advertising campaign.

The event will be collecting for the Nepal Earthquake appeal with a special Live Spinning Demo by the Active Spin Team to open the event on Saturday at 11am.  Harry Zambon from Zambon Fitness will also be making a donation to the appeal when he takes the stage at 12:45pm on Sunday.  Harry is inviting all participants to make their way to the stage area and do as many Squats as they can.  For each squat performed Harry will be donating 10 pence to this deserving cause.
