According to the International Journal of Obesity, Australia has a growing obesity epidemic, with 1 in 5 kids considered obese. The study found that an increase in childhood obesity means that Australians are starting out adulthood with a higher BMI and higher levels of obesity than ever before.
This is where Arnold’s vision and fitness crusade to the world and in turn the Arnold Kids & Teen Zone, intends to help to turn those numbers around! Although we encourage all people regardless of age, gender, sexuality, ethnicity of physical abilities to take part in sport and activities at the event, the focus on the participation of kids and teens is fundamental the the vision and goals of the event.
We are passionate about getting our kids and teens fit and healthy by exposing them to as many different sports as possible !
ALL kids & teens under 15 accompanied by an adult are also admitted FREE OF CHARGE for all three days of the expo. Even more exciting, is that every year; one of Arnold’s favourite parts of the event is to visit ALL the activities in the Kids & Teens zone, meet and interact with the participants, and encourage and cheer on everyone to join his lifelong crusade of leading a fit and healthy lifestyle!
