BodyPower is back and is taking the fitness industry by storm once again. The UK’s largest fitness exhibition returns for its 2015 instalment and it’s bigger and better than ever before.
Now into its seventh year running, BodyPower attracts over 70,000 fitness enthusiasts from over 100 countries Worldwide.
Once again Birmingham’s NEC arena will play host to the leading UK fitness event and the venues accessibility will surely prove key in attracting the international fitness market.
Epic Fitness Summit
New for 2015 is the ‘EPIC Summit’, a full 3 day programme from World class, evidence based speakers. EPIC, which stands for Evidence and Practical Insight Centred, focuses on the science behind the statements, helping to broaden your knowledge base and even offer solutions to everyday fitness problems.
Students especially can profit from the summit, a large portion of the content covered directly correlates with a plethora of degrees and college courses. The evidence based nature allows students to learn how experts translate and apply the evidence and literature on certain subjects to their professional surroundings.
Par for the course is the portfolio of athletes BodyPower will house for its three day course this year, your favourites from every aspect of fitness you could dream of!

Josh Bridgeman takes the next step!
our MASS Student Physique Championship overall men’s champion Josh Bridgeman is taking the next step aftering winning the MASS SPC by entering the USN BodyPower classic Men’s Physique competition in the junior category. We caught up with the champ to see how his preparation is going…
How are you feeling going into your next competition off the back of your win at the MASS SPC?
“I’m feeling ok thanks! I had 3-4 days off the diet which I suffered for, but I’ve managed to bring it all back in again! So I’m just excited to get on stage again now.”
The USN BodyPower classic, is this going to be on a whole new level?
“The USN Classic should be a good event, it’s not restricted to students so the competition can be huge. Although I am doing the juniors (under 23). But it’s a different competition with different attire and different posing. So adapting will be a fun test.”
Where and when can we watch you?
“Saturday 16th of May – USN Auditorium for the USN Classic junior men’s physique at 2pm. Hopefully see you guys there.”

MASS Group Photo @ 10am Outside Hall 19
2015 looks to be the biggest year for BodyPower since its beginnings in 2009 and it has been agreed it will take over 5/6 halls in the NEC. MASS won’t be exhibiting this year as we’re already over-endowed with club applications and stash has almost sold out. But, club group trips are still in full swing nonetheless so be sure to wear your MASS stash and meet us outside hall 19 at 10am where we’ll be taking a MASSive group photo before invading the expo. See you there!
