Fitness on offer at expo

IT HAD everything from bellydancers to pole dancers to a push up competition.

The Move It Expo held at the Bundaberg Recreational Precinct yesterday had hundreds of people go along to inspect the options for getting just that bit fitter.

The expo was held in the Civic Centre last year, but moving it to the recreational precinct gave it more space.

Organiser Cristel Simmonds from Impact Make Your Mark said all the feedback at the event showed it had been a great success.

"We had sponsors, stallholders and the public telling us how much fun it was," she said.

"We had at least 600 people through the door, and there were 57 stallholders."

Mrs Simmonds said the expo featured various demonstrations.

"It's hard to compare it to last year because it was a different time of year and a different venue," she said.

Bundaberg Regional Council social and recreational spokeswoman Lynne Forgan said she thought this year's event surpassed last year's.

"This time of year the weather is warming up and people are looking to get fit," she said.

"There is an amazing array of activities available in Bundaberg."
