The AFC Fitness Idol contest is open to all current or aspiring fitness trainers.
The Asia Fitness Convention (AFC) is being held for the fourth consecutive year in Thailand and will, for the first time, provide a platform for aspiring fitness trainers to fast-track their careers by participating in a contest.
In line with this year's theme, "Inspiration + Passion = Transformation", the AFC Fitness Idol 2012 competition will offer a chance to personal fitness trainers, amateur or professional, to be presenters at next year's convention.
The competition is only open to AFC 2012 participants who can apply online (to www.asia-fitness.com) until Sept 15. Simply forward a five to 10-minute YouTube video which shows you teaching any type of fitness class (cardio, strength, flexibility, performance or fusion) in English.
Co-organised by Kenes Asia (Thailand) and Fitness Innovations (Thailand), AFC 2012 will be held from Oct 19 to 21 at the Dusit Thani Hotel, Pattaya.
The names of those who have made it through to the semi-finals will be announced on Oct 1. Each semi-finalist will be required to prepare a four-minute audition piece to be delivered on Oct 19 (6pm to 7pm) in front of the other AFC delegates and a panel of distinguished, world-class fitness professionals.
Five finalists will be selected, and will be invited to give an instruction presentation on stage, again before AFC delegates, on Oct 20.
The fee for attending AFC 2012 for one, two or three days is 8,290, 11,190 or 12,990 baht (respectively). The deadline for registration is Sept 30.
