// CanfitPro World Fitness Expo

Alicia Vell - CanfitPro World Fitness Expo

I recently spoke at the 2016 CanfitPro World Fitness Expo. My talk was Saturday August 13th in the main expo hall. I spoke about Hydration! Overall I think my talk was well received and I got a lot of good questions and feedback. This was my second time speaking at the expo and I hope that I can speak again next year! I love speaking engagements.

A little bit more not he event and Canfitpro:

Canfitpro brought together global experts on fitness, nutrition and healthy living in downtown Toronto earlier this month as part of the 2016 canfitpro world fitness expo.

  • Opening keynote address by Hollywood celebrity trainer, Harley Pasternak
    • Industry awards for Canadian, Specialty, International and New presenter
    • Lifetime Achievment award to Beto Perez, creator of Zumba
    • Workouts lead by Jillian Michaels (BODYSHRED creator), Tony Horton (P90X creator), Shaun T (INSANITY creator),
    • Over 400 professional sessions on nutrition, personal training, group fitness, mind-body, active aging and more

    canfitpro also achieved their goal of raising $100,000 to build a playground for the Pacific Autism Family Centre, due in large part to the generous donations from world fitness expo delegates, business owners, presenters, volunteers and consumers, matched by canfitpro.
