August 8-12 in Toronto

TORONTO, ON — This month, fitness enthusiasts, industry professionals and newcomers alike are getting a sneak peek at the latest trends in health and wellness at canfitpro World Fitness Expo. Attendees will get the opportunity to customize their experiences with a selection of over 300 innovative fitness, wellness and nutrition sessions, presented by over 200 industry experts. Now in its milestone 25th year, the canfitpro World Fitness Expo returns to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre August 8-12 to entertain thousands and inspire the next generation of fitness lovers.

Both experts in the field and those looking to strengthen their knowledge and routine will enjoy a wide range of workout sessions and training seminars led by exclusive celebrity talent including Jillian Michaels, Derek Hough, Tae Bo’s Billy Blanks and dancing bodybuilders, The Brutez. With hundreds of sessions from Zumba, cycling and interval training to kickboxing and ballet, there’s something for every fitness level and interest.

A popular workout gaining recognition for its intense results and minimal equipment, calisthenics are predominantly bodyweight exercises intended to increase strength and flexibility through movements that use the body for resistance. Moving freely without any restrictions, calisthenics offers muscular and aerobic conditioning that improves psychomotor skills such as balance, agility and coordination. This year’s canfitpro World Fitness Expo features a calisthenics competition led by Quebec-based, Calistation.

Hot Booty Ballet
This booty-toning fitness trend is based on traditional ballet conditioning exercises that will shape, sculpt and stretch the glute muscles. Meant to increase your metabolism and burn fat to achieve optimal results, Hot Booty Ballet stands out thanks to the use of Hot Booty Bands for added resistance training. Returning to canfitpro World Fitness Expo this year, attendees can enjoy routines choreographed to match the lyrics and musicality of each song, taking this class to the next level.

Founded in 1994, YogaFit is the largest yoga school in North America.
