This weekend in Gothenburg: The Swedish Fitness Festival!

The Swedish Fitness Festival!Scandinavia’s No 1 meeting point for the Scandinavian market!

  • Location: Gothenburg, Sweden
  • Date: December 8-9

The Fitness Festival was first held in its original form in 1986. The festival has grown to become Scandinavia’s natural meeting point for the fitness and wellbeing trends of today and tomorrow. In 2007 the festival is set to be the best ever. Hopefully both where marketing and the number of visitors are concerned. visitor statistics show an ever rising number of visitors and we reckon on welcoming at least 10.000 high quality visitors this year.

The Fitness Festival represents an opportunity for club owners, personal trainers and active people from all over Scandinavia to meet under one roof. And over the course of the festival there will be activities going on all the time to attract visitors from the growing Scandinavian fitness market.

Seminar with Sergio Olivia, 3 x Mr. Olympia, New Jersey, July 29

Tone Barbaccio writes on Fortified Iron forum about an upcoming seminar for a good cause:

“Proceeds will help support Skiba’s non-profit gym! Skiba’s Gym helps bring inner-city youth into Powerlifting/Bodybuilding and keep them off the street and off drugs.

When: July 29, 2006
Where: Carteret High School New Jersey (Exit 12 off the NJ Turnpike)
What: Nutrition/Bodybuilding Seminar
Who: Sergio Oliva

Tone Barbaccio, who is on the Top 100 All-Time Bench Press List with a 675lb bench, will also be doing a guest bench at the seminar. CourierPostOnline recently profiled him:

“At 6-foot-6, Tone Barbaccio weighed 185 pounds at Maple Shade High School, where he graduated in 1990. Now he is almost 200 pounds heavier.

Unlike those who skip high school reunions because of weight gains, he is proud of now weighing 368 pounds. That’s because Barbaccio works at gaining weight. He is a rising star in the world powerlifting ranks.”
