It's the Day 1 of the two day LA Fitness Expo. It's around 11am and the crowd is already packed at the LA Convention Center. The South Hall of the convention center is where the Expo is taking place but multiple events are taking place this weekend at the same time. The Black College convention of America is taking place as well as tryouts for America's Got Talent so there's well over 10,000 people at the convention center even before noon. The LA Fit Expo expects 15,000 over the next two days so this is going to be a really busy weekend.
The schedule of events lists that there will be a number of interesting activities going on throughout the day. The US Gracie Nationals and Kid's World Champion Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments are scheduled for the entire day as well as the LA Open Martial Arts Competition. There will be a number of lifting competitions going on throughout the day that include the USPF American Cup Powerlifting Championship, Gaspari Nutrition's All-American Strongman Challenge as well as the Champion Nutrition's Bench Press & Bicep Curl Competition. There will also be a number of demonstrations for Olympic Lifting, Kettlebell swings, Martial Arts and even how to cook 10 minute meals.
