A FITNESS expo will be held at the Girmit Centre in Lautoka next month.

The day-long event sponsored by Bodyworks Publishing will include a walk for fitness, yoga, meditation and zumba classes.

The highlight of the program will be the bodybuilding competition which will feature New Zealand bodybuilder Sanjeev Narayan as a judge and guest poser.

Bodyworks Publishing managing director Albert Anthony Veeran said the expo would help lift the image of bodybuilding in the country.

Veeran said there was great potential for bodybuilders provided they are groomed properly.

"Bodybuilding is a sport that requires absolute discipline," he said.

"A competitive bodybuilder has to dedicate month after month of eating right and training hard and then go on a shredding and ripping diet. It requires at least a three-month training program to get ready to step on stage.

"I'm appreciative of Fiji Fitness and Body Building for supporting me to stage this, especially in the West.

"I believe this event will help the sport of bodybuilding tremendously. It is considered a minor sport but we are trying to get more corporate support to help the sport grow.

"We believe there is great potential out there even up to the international arena if the bodybuilders are groomed properly."

The program for June 7 will start at 6am with a walk for fitness from Shirley Park to Girmit Centre followed by meditation at 7am.

The closed doors bodybuilding pre-judging will take place at 9am and will be followed by Zumba classes at 11am.

The main bodybuilding event begins at 6pm featuring the men's open bodybuilding categories, men's masters over 50 years category with various martial arts displays in between each weight category judging.

Ticket price for the bodybuilding event is $5 and are available at Patels Video, Mega Pharmacy and Silver Age in Lautoka.
