Cosplay Fitness Panel Idea
« on: February 14, 2015, 05:02:53 pm »
I was wondering if anyone's interested in a Cosplay Fitness panel. It's basically just a panel that shows exercises on how to tone up your body, form muscles, and fitness stuff in general. How many of you guys would show up?

myself and about three others put in a fitness panel for kumo. We did one at newcon and it went pretty well. It was more about myths and safety stuff but I think we will try to add in more examples of workouts and what not. it's pretty hard to do too much because one there is so much to talk about and two I am afraid of someone getting hurt after doing what I said type thing. I'm not a pro training, just letting you know what works for me.

The main thing I am really sure we will cover is breaking all the horrible myths about workouts. like you do low weight high reps to tone type thing, spot reduction, how to actually get abs, how women actually get the "toned" look and so on. Magazines and the media has really caused Huge issues with all of those. It really sucks.

There is nothing wrong with you both having similar panels.  ;) If an attendee wants to go to both, or misses on they can still make the other, lots of reasons.

Yeah sorry, I wasn't trying to say you shouldn't submit yours. I'm actually really glad there is a spike in people wanting to do them this year :)

I'd say the only caution is time.  I ran a cosplay fitness panel two years ago at Kcon but we were 8am on Sunday and no one showed up.  Eventually we had two guys pop in but that was it.  As far as I knew there weren't any other 'big' panels going on but I think the early morning turned people off.
