Has anyone been to The Fit expo

May 13, 2022 - edited May 14, 2022 - permalink

The fit expo is based is SoCal, they have ones in Anaheim LA, and San Diego. I just took my family to Disneyland, fun but slightly rough with my 3 daughter, but still fun. We stayed at the Hilton Anaheim, which is connected to the Anaheim Convention Center. I kinda wanna use the Fit Expo as an excuse to go back to Disney next year. I’ll probably bring my brother or a friend this time. A fit expo from what I understand does not focus primarily on bodybuilding. General bodybuilding expos usually are with their respective shows, and can be hard to find depending on who runs them. Like if it’s NPC IFBB etc. The question I am trying to ask is how many muscle women would be at this show. I know there would be at-least a few, but I worry few too little to spend all this money.

Cassady Campbell crashed a few, but took down those videos from his YouTube channel. :(

If you want to go to Disney, go to Disney. If you want to see muscle women, go to the Olympia.

The Fit Expo isn’t a female muscle fan event. It’s more of an industry sales and customer relations/acquisition event.

I'm not sure if OP is married or not (there is no mention of a wife). Assuming there is a wife, it would probably be best that you're both on the same page as far as what you're planning to do. If she finds out second-hand, it's over.

She knows about my fetish, I went to BB shows while we were just dating. Took pictures and women flexing and everything. We are both scared to be without each other. I’m a weak individual (but this a whole other subject. I know the Olympia is in a few cities. I know there’s one in the ironically named Olympia WA. But which is the best one? I am also looking for an excuse to go to Disneyland next year, (something I can do, so I can put Disney on the side) (and take a friend, or sibling) but again that’s a whole other subject.

There’s aren’t really such as female muscle fan events, I’m just interested in shows we’re muscle women are in abundance.

i went to the LA one acouple of times. Saw Vanessa Serros, Shannon Courtney, DLB, Chelsea Karabin the first time around, and Brooke Walker and Katie Lee for round 2.

There are certainly buff women there but you better be ready to wait on line.

In the years since I've been I know Tessa Barresi and Natasha Aughey had been, and a few other social media names, but they'll likely be at booths shilling product, but still not a bad place to do it if they're not as popular as someone else that may be pulling all the fans.

EDIT: apparently paige sandgren will be there tomorrow

LA fit expo

May 14, 2022 - edited May 14, 2022 - permalink

I went to one about 10 years ago and I saw DLB, Lauren Powers, sherry Goggin (which I bought some supps from her) actor Lou Ferigino and a bunch of mbb and fbb.

Like others mentioned if you're going to go to Disneyland than go to Disneyland. I don't know what your budget is but Disneyland prices are $100 each which doesn't include food. I know the fitexpo would be cheaper (I don't know because the first and only time I went I got in for free since I know someone that worked with muscular development).

Seconded.

The Olympia expo is where you want to go. Great atmosphere there.

I was thinking about using to the LA fit expo as an excuse to go back to Disney, because my wife wants to cut back on such trips for awhile. I know tickets for Disney are 100$, I paid for 300+ park hopper tickets, for my wife and daughter. I was thinking doing just one day passes 100$ each. But I’m drifting one off the intention of this post now.

Yeah it sounds like The Olympia would be better event. Has anyone ever been to BB show we’re there are muscle girls around every corner? What’s the best city for Olympia.

The fit expo isn’t just in Anahiem, it’s also in LA, and San Diego, and I think San Francisco.

And for those just tuning in, reading the two red flags that are wife, daughter. As I said before my wife knows about my fetish, I stopped going to shows when we moved in together in 2015. It’s been so long, I’ve wanting go to another show. I can’t describe what it’s like seeing FFBs up close in personal. I don’t believe it’s cheating as long as you don’t have sex with them lol. But again I mostly wanted some two cents on the fit expo, as I’m once again creating a whole other subject lol.

Like you said going to the FitExpo isn't cheating it is for the fitness industry to sell you products, demonstration, and meets and greets and etc.

And no I never went to a bb comp but was going to to support another guy (his gf was Victoria Dominguez) but never did but mutual friends went and supported him.

Uh, that's textbook emotional cheating. The way you describe your relationship (afraid to be without each other) is textbook codependence. I don't know you so I'm not going to draw any conclusions or cast aspersions, but it might be healthy to re-evaluate some things in your life.

Oh boy, I have a few questions. The first is: why do you need the Fit Expo as an excuse to go to Disneyland? If you want to go to the Fit Expo, just go. I don’t get why you need the pretext of a family trip to Disneyland in order to go, unless you are trying to hide something

Uh, that's textbook emotional cheating. The way you describe your relationship (afraid to be without each other) is textbook codependence. I don't know you so I'm not going to draw any conclusions or cast aspersions, but it might be healthy to re-evaluate some things in your life.

Let me preface this by saying that I am sympathetic towards people who are on the Spectrum (you mentioned in a prior post having mild Asperger’s,) so I hope you don’t take this the wrong way, but like superiorgenetics said, this isn’t a good mentality to have. I know you said that your wife is well-aware of your fetish for muscular women, but just because you aren’t having sex with them doesn’t mean that you are not cheating. Cheating can have multiple interpretations depending on the other party (like, for example some partners might be ok with their SO seeing a session wrestlers, while others do not,) but emotional cheating is absolutely a thing. And with the whole being afraid to be apart from each other: that’s not good. Relationships are built on trust, and I might be assuming things here, but from what you wrote, it sounds like your wife doesn’t want you to be alone at these events with muscular women.

And also, from reading your post history, you need to really work on having proper boundaries with muscular women (or any women for that matter.) You have asked if touching a bicep without consent is ok (it never is and is social etiquette 101) and you have tagged women into pictures you take. First off, it’s pretty rude to not ask for permission before tagging someone that YOU KNOW in a post or pic on social media. It is a hundred times creepier when it’s someone you don’t know (and no, DMing a woman on social media or having a brief chat with them at an event does not mean you know them.) And i have been to events and Expos like the Olympia (I am involved in the strength training community,) and I have seen people act the way you describe towards the women there, and it is never wanted, looked upon very badly and you run the risk of offending and pissing off the wrong person and having someone really do something harmful to you.

I really am not trying to rag on you, but seeing this kind of behavior first-hand and seeing what it does to the women in this community spurred me to post this. I don’t think you are doing any of those behaviors with ill-intent or malice, but to the women who receive it, it doesn’t matter. I recommend putting aside everything about going to any kind of fitness or bodybuilding expo, maybe even taking a break from muscle woman content entirely, and do a little bit of re-evaluation. Do it for the sake of the women in the fitness community, do it for your family, and most importantly do it for you.

i have seen relationships dissolve over far less emotional cheating than "i have a fetish of msucle women" this is danger zone for me
