The 2018 LA Fit Expo has come and gone, but PricePlow was there in force to cover the latest happenings, newest product releases, and even get interviewed for the first real documentary about this wonderful industry that is sports supplements.
There were a lot of highs (key interviews, shotgunning BANGs, sneak peeks at new products) and a few lows (the sketchy AirBnB, bad dinner at Hooters) that made for a trip we’ll never forget.
In case you weren’t there, here’s a recap of the weekend’s happenings to catch you up on all that we experienced first hand!
Day 1: SUPPS – The Movie
Day one of the 2018 LA Fit Expo Extravaganza follows Robert & CJ from Austin, TX to the bright lights of Los Angeles where they met up with SUPPS: The Movie director Alex Ardenti for an interview and chat about the history and current state of the supplement industry. Following that, the guys head to what could be described as the sketchiest AirBNB ever!
Interview with Dan Lourenco, CEO & Co-Founder of GHOST
Our 2018 LA Fit Expo kicked off on Saturday with a sit down meeting with none other than Dan Lourenco, CEO and co-founder of Ghost.
