According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), 500 million people will suffer from the consequences of physical inactivity by 2030. The WHO recommendation: Adults should be physically active for at least 150 minutes per week. The experts assign the fitness industry a key role in this. FIBO accepts this mission and is substantially advancing the trend of health-oriented fitness training with new initiatives and formats. With its new "Health Ambassador", the renowned sports scientist Ingo Froböse, Professor of Rehabilitation and Prevention at Cologne Sports University, FIBO is also making the value of fitness for health visible and tangible for the masses. 
"Fitness and exercise build the basis for physical health. It is important to us to clearly present the key and pioneering role of the fitness industry for people's health and to bring together the industry players at the show," says Silke Frank, Event Director of FIBO. "Our mission is to sensitise and inspire the general public for a healthy, active lifestyle and to show how it can be done."
The biggest fitness trends live to try out
FIBO will inspire its visitors with the biggest fitness trends at one place and the opportunity to network with stars and athletes.

With functional training, HIIT and running, the worldwide challenge combines three training methods in one and offers a competition for everyone for the first time at FIBO.
