Let’s Get Physical at the LA County Fair’s Fitness Fair

POMONA, CA (July 30, 2019) -- The LA County Fair is going where not many fairs have gone before...to the gym! The 2019 LA County Fair will feature the Fitness Fair, presented by Walmart, opening weekend of the Fair Aug. 30 - Sept. 2.

Through new partnerships with Spartan Race, 24 Hour Fitness, US Strongman and more, health and fitness will take over the infield near the Grandstand to give fairgoers an opportunity to work out, learn about healthy lifestyles and much more.

“At Fairplex, we are all about taking the Fair to the next level, and we wanted to bring something that was completely unexpected of the LA County Fair,” President and CEO Miguel Santana said. “Although the Fair may be filled with foods that are guilty pleasures for a lot of us who attend, we want to also promote healthy lifestyles for our guests so that they may be able to continue to come back to the fair for years to come.”

Programs at the Fitness Fair include:

● Spartan Race Obstacle Course
● Zumba, Body Pump, GX24 and POP Pilates classes by 24 Hour Fitness
● 100 Mile Club Fun Run
● Daily Boot Camps by Ontario Fury
● Michelob Ultra Semi-Truck Pull and competitions by US Strong man
● Health and wellness vendor fair

The Spartan Race Obstacle Course requires the purchase of a challenge ticket for the course prior to coming to the fair. Admission to the fair is included with the purchase of the Spartan Race Obstacle Course challenge ticket.

“This is the perfect event for anyone who wants to have their cake and eat it too – literally,” Santana said. “The Fair is about having a wonderful time, so we know that our guests will take advantage of this opening weekend event and still feel great when they are exploring the fairgrounds for their deep-fried favorites.”
