Fitcon
Have you ever been up close and next to a Sumo Wrestler? Now is your chance. Part of this year’s fifth annual FitCon Expo includes for the first time top heavyweight wrestlers wearing traditional Japanese-styled mawashi sumo belts, in all their glory.
What: FitCon
Where: The Salt Palace Convention Center
APRIL 12-13, 2019
Tickets and information: FitCon Expo
FitCon is an annual event which showcases sports and fitness interests, including the ones that aren’t as mainstream—like aerial pole dancing and arm wrestling—all in one venue. Along with entertainment, workouts and guest speakers, FitCon will be hosting numerous athletic and fitness-centered competitions over the course of two days.
Also: Throwing things seems to be a theme at this year’s FitCon: axes, stones, and yes, humans.
As a side note, there is an emphasis on the women this year with the FitCon for Her, providing another option for attendees. And it’s not just for the women or the living, the free facials, massages and manicures are for the “Day of the Dead” participants too.
And our favorite add-on (other than the sumo bit) is that Top Fitness influencers and Make-A-Wish kids will be combining efforts to raise $50K for Make-A-Wish Utah. We love this program and know what a huge difference this organization has made for children diagnosed with critical illnesses and improving their chances of recovering.
