Europa Expo Dallas Entrance
written by runnergirl training
This last weekend (June 17-18, 2016) was the Europa Games Expo. It included NPC & IFBB Pro body building, martial arts, wrestling, power lifting and arm wrestling competitions. There was also a large trade show & fitness expo. Check out more pics below!
I was surprised how crowded the fitness expo was with attendees! It was elbow to elbow while navigating the expo. Several bodybuilding celebrities drew long lines at booths for autographs. The product booths had clothing companies, prepackaged food/supplements, protein shakers, and accessories like sweat-wicking headbands. There seemed to be more booths for food and supplements than other merchandise.
Youth Martial Arts
Adult Martial Arts
The youth martial arts events were really fun to watch. Everyone displayed good sportsmanship and effort! The competitions included karate sparring and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The adults martial arts events included no-gi and gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Lots of skill, effort, blood, sweat & tears left on those mats!
I watched some of the power lifting and arm wrestling competitions. Everyone gave their best effort & it was fun to watch them compete. I also watched a bit of the bodybuilding competitions and awards. All of the competitors put in so much time and dedication to their sport.
The athletes' drive and dedication is impressive and shows that their goals certainly are achievable. Much respect to each of those who competed. The Europa Games & Expo was really a fun event for anyone interested in fitness and the included specific sports.
I was not asked to write this review or compensated in any way. I attended because of personal interest.
