The 2013 Fitness Fusion Marathon & Wellness Expo is an opportunity for people of all sizes—especially full-figured men and women—to challenge themselves to an all-day, circuit training-style workout. The event, which will be covered by NBC 5, takes place at Columbia College’s Stage Two facility on Saturday, June 8, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The circuits are intense but upbeat, consisting of Zumba, line-dancing fitness, house-music cardio, and Pilates. Guest instructors include Shea Vaughn, an international fitness expert who has appeared on Ellen.
While catching their breath, participants can visit wellness vendor booths and attend workshops and meet-and-greets with featured guests such as Naked Fitness author Andrea Metcalf and Chicago Bulls Team Ambassador Sidney Green. Attendees benefit not only their own health but that of local children—a portion of the proceeds go to Action for Healthy Kids. Doors open at 8:30 a.m.<p>
2014 Fitness Fusion Expo
The 2014 Fitness Fusion Expo is put on by the ThYck Troupe organization, a nonprofit performing-arts company that creates performance opportunities for women with curves. Today, ThYck Troupe has gained the support of Secretary of State Jesse White and Governor Pat Quinn in its mission to enrich the Chicago arts community.
In addition to mentoring young women and promoting size acceptance, the troupe produces an original web series, organizes fashion shows, and showcases performers in theatrical and musical productions. With the Thyck and Fit Initiative, they broadcast a message of health as well as confidence, giving full-figured women and men the tools they need to achieve good exercise and nutrition habits at any size.
