The new FIBO CAMPUS gets trainers in shape
FIBO Campus 2019
Earn points, acquire licenses and work out with top international presenters, all while expanding your business and nutrition horizons: the FIBO CAMPUS features a comprehensive programme for trainers. From Thursday, 4 April, to Saturday, 6 April 2019, the motto will be one place, one ticket, one entrance – but not just for one programme! With the FIBO CAMPUS, the Leading International Trade Show for Fitness, Wellness and Health, will revamp its entire educational programme. Simpler and more flexible than ever before, trainers will be able to put together their highly personalised class schedule at the concurrent congress. With a total of 13 thematic tracks, such as Fitness goes Health, Nutrition and Functional, the FIBO CAMPUS offers a multifaceted programme.
Functional Forum and workout
Trainers will be able to further their functional training education on all three CAMPUS days. Kicking off things on Thursday will be the Functional Forum by IFAA, Perform Better and Functional Training Magazin. Numerous practical sessions will take place on Friday and Saturday, including “FunTone” with Jana Spring, “7 strategies for happy fascia” with Miriam Wessels, “FUNCTIONALFIT®” with Johanna Fellner and “Physio gym” with Andy Goller.
Group training from yoga to dance
The highlights among the workouts for trainers and instructors will be found in the segments Aqua Fitness, Body & Mind and Step & Dance. Besides theory, there’ll also be a lot of practice. The focus of Body & Mind will be on fascia, yoga and Pilates. Fascia enthusiast Miriam Wessels, for example, will offer yoga according to the FASZIO method, while Julio Sans Tolivia will present “MYOFaszination LSH training for muscle length growth”. Jutta Schuhn, international presenter with over 30 years of experience in the fitness industry, will host “Stability and mobility flow” and “Dynamic Pilates”. On Saturday, the programme continues with “Biokinematics – pain-free joints” with Tina Zeller, “Pilates flow” with Barbara Klein and “NATURALFLOW®” with Johanna Fellner.
One highlight in the Step & Dance track on Friday is the “Aerodance Sensation 2019” with Spain’s fitness star and ZUMBA presenter Jessica Exposito. “Dance choreo” with Maria Gramüller and “Step by step” with Marc-Oliver Kluike will also be offered.
Personal trainers increasingly aspire to serve their customers with a holistic approach that includes nutritional advice. On Thursday and Saturday, the FIBO CAMPUS will dedicate an entire day to the right nutrition for athletic success. Trainer and lecturer Dagmar Dautel will share nutrition tips for performance enhancement, and nutritionist Dr. Christina Steinbach will explain how to eat right when suffering from muscle injuries. The question of how to tailor nutrition to one’s own lifestyle and body will be explored by Dr. Nicolai Worm, professor at the German University of Applied Sciences for Prevention and Health Management (DHPG), in his “Flexi-Carb” talk and by Dr. Hossein Askari in his lecture “Molecular genetics and individual nutrition planning: Reality or pie in the sky?” The ecotrophologist Sylvia Herberg will explain the psychology of eating in nutrition counselling. On Saturday, nutritionist and TV host Dr. Alexa Iwan will cover “Clean eating”. The chef and nutritional consultant Niko Rittenau will provide answers to critical questions of vegan nutrition, and fitness coach Markus Ramcke will demonstrate how a diet can be fun. Also on Saturday, coach, author and competitive athlete in the bikini fitness category Mirjam Rodrigues da Silva will pass on her dietary recommendations for weight training.
Therapy & Training
In addition, targeting physiotherapists are the “Therapy & Training” sessions by the German Academy for Applied Sports Medicine (DAASM). Here the relations between the health care sector, state actors and the fitness industry are in focus.
On the FIBO Thursday Dr. Dr. med. Homayun Gharavi will ask how much medicine the fitness industry can take. “A Tight Rope Walk between Competence and Authorization for Health Counselling”. How to bridge the “Gap between Therapy and Training” and how patients are turned into customers will be shown by Marius Brandt. Patricia Andrews will address the change in school sports: “The Quiet Demise of Physical Education at German Schools – A Declaration of War on the Health System or an Opportunity for the Fitness Industry?”
