Doors Open to a Record Breaking First Day at BodyPower Expo 2017


Traditionally, certainly in years gone by, Friday at BodyPower has been billed as an ‘Industry and Preview Day’ that focussed predominantly on trade visitors and the media.

Since 2013, however, Friday has opened up to the public and is without doubt one of the most sensational experiences that the show has to offer.

2017 was no different, with an adrenaline-fueled extravaganza that created an atmosphere of positivity that surely can’t be matched at any other show in the world.

The list of highlights is endless, but here’s a brief overview of what was on offer!

Workout Arena

The jewel in the crown, certainly when it comes to feature areas. The Workout Arena didn’t disappoint on a fantastic Friday, with star names joining MC Dino on stage for exclusive Q&A sessions in front of the fans.

Friday saw Dallas McCarver, Jen Jewell, Craig Capurso, Calum von Moger, Dana Linn Bailey, Steve Cook and William Bonac – a stellar line-up.


The giants of the show took to the floor as superhuman feats of strength were centre stage. Amateur competitors from all over Europe competed under the watchful eye of British Strongman legends Terry Hollands and Rob Frampton as the competition began.

The winner will automatically get a place in Giants Live so there was a lot of passion on show as well as incredible strength sport – what a spectacle!!

The Academy – Fitness Pros Day

Today was a dedicated Fitness Professionals Day which was accredited by REPS. Hundreds of PTs, coaches and trainers were on hand to fill The Academy theatre to see a host of the most reputable names in the industry take to the stage.

The likes of Phil Learney, Phil Graham, Martin MacDonald, Ben Coomber and Jamie Alderton all produced engaging and informative seminars that were packed with usable advice and information to help fitness pros with their professional development.

You can still buy a ticket either online or on the door for the last day of the show. We've got many more exciting events until 6pm with exclusive Q&A sessions, demonstrations and competitions. There is something for everyone, you won't be disappointed!
