Want a beautiful body? I’m not talking going under the knife — no, you’re going to have to work for it. The West Maui Health and Fitness Expo is your ticket to figuring out the newest fitness fads to whip you into shape. The Lahaina Cannery Mall hosts this Expo on Oct. 8 starting at 10:30am, where you can see booths of fitness offerings, on stage demonstrations, products, athletic wear and more.
“Health is on everyone’s mind,” said expo organizer Amanda Furgiuele. “It’s a multi-billion dollar business. I think people are interested in health and fitness now more than ever. We have so many technological advances in the industry, tons of gadgets and equipment to make getting fit more fun, and it really is easy to get started. It’s all about making small changes — walking a few extra blocks, ordering one less cocktail at dinner, putting down the bag of Doritos one-handful sooner. That’s where you’re going to see steady, life-altering results, and that’s where the expo can help. Maybe you’ll discover a new class or endeavor you never knew existed, or never knew was offered on Maui. Maybe you’ll try a new protein shake you actually want to drink every day. Or maybe you’ll buy a new pair of running shorts that will help you turn your daily walk into a jog. You never know until you see what’s out there!”
The expo will feature a full day of fitness classes and healthy-living showcases open to everyone. Exhibitors will showcase products and services, give away classes and coupons, and be on site to answer any of your questions. Prizes up for grabs include pilates, pole dancing, zumba, yoga, kickboxing classes, CrossFit memberships, Lululemon Athletica accessories, clothing, massages and more.
So put down your shave ice and head over to the Lahaina Cannery Mall and enjoy a variety of fitness classes. All classes are open to the public. Furgiuele says she hopes to have 30 exhibitors this year, with a lot of returning and brand new vendors. They will have nutritionists and health gurus talking about supplements, and anti aging products lines that are new to the market.
