We want you to share your experience at FIBO with everyone. Please feel free to take as many pictures and videos of all the classes and innovations at FIBO. Don’t forget to use the hashtags #FIBOAfrica19 #FindYourFITness and #LoveOfFIT
4: Bring cash
ATMs can be found at Entrance 1 (Absa) and Entrance 3 (Standard Bank). While most exhibitors will have card machines, bring cash just in case!
5: Safety and security
FIBO organisers want you to have as much fun and get as involved as possible, without worrying about safety and security. They’ve provided security, and your health and safety are in good hands with paramedics on-site and on-call, just in case you push yourself too hard in one of the classes, or get overwhelmed with excitement!
6: Make use of the Nickerbockerdooblebug FitPLAYGROUND
It’s geared towards the whole family from working dads and moms trying to hustle some training time, to beginners looking to develop a more holistic and healthy lifestyle. FIBO caters for the little ones too with the Nickerbockerdooblebug FitPLAYGROUND, which is a dedicated, safe and fun childcare area to care for the kids while you workout!
7: Be a hero with FIBO Africa
Are all your race medals collecting dust? Want to put them to good use? FIBO has the solution. Please bring your old race medals to FIBO Africa. These medals are handed out to many children who are patients at the Oliver Tambo Hospital in Johannesburg and the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital in Cape Town. They are symbols of bravery and are handed to the children either post-op or when they are about to go home. Make a difference in these children’s lives. Simply bring your medal with you to FIBO Africa and hang it on the medal tree at the entrance. Come on, be a hero!
8: Get your tickets!
The most important and obvious point of all is to purchase your tickets to FIBO now! Children under the age of 12 get in for free! You can purchase them at www.computicket.com. Your FIBO ticket will give you access to all the classes and talks that FIBO has to offer.
Parking is not included in your ticket price, so be sure to keep R25 handy to keep your car parked safely and securely.
