Up-and-coming Fitness Federation UKUP to host UKUP BodyPower Classic on Friday 12th May at world’s largest indoor consumer fitness event

HONILEY, Thursday, December 1, 2016 – Organisers of the largest indoor consumer fitness event in the world, BodyPower Expo, have announced a brand-new partnership with UKUP (United Kingdom Ultimate Physiques) to host the UKUP BodyPower Classic bodybuilding event at the 2017 show.

Bodybuilding has long been a core element of the mammoth expo, attracting over 100,000 fitness enthusiasts to the NEC, Birmingham from the 12th to 14th May 2017. Fans of the sport will be treated to an embarrassment of riches, with UKUP joining the already confirmed PCA, BNBF, WBFF and BodyPower Model Search contests on the show floor.

BodyPower Director, Ollie Upton, commented: “We’re delighted to, in many ways, be going back to our roots with so many treats for bodybuilding fans. UKUP will be another integral part of us reaching out to those fans who have supported us from the outset to say ‘we’re still true to our core’ even as the show gets more diverse. The UKUP BodyPower Classic will be a fantastic event and I’m sure we’ll see some future industry stars on stage.”
