The Australian Fitness & Health Expo, the largest fitness event of its kind in the southern hemisphere, is coming to Melbourne for the first time this weekend. We celebrated the arrival with Melbourne's first healthy breakfast tram.
In conjunction with Melbourne's iconic Colonial Tramcar Restaurant, the Australian Fitness & Health Expo placed a new spin on this much-loved dining option by providing a breakfast menu custom-designed by The Healthy Chef Teresa Cutter.
Operating from a converted vintage tram, The Colonial Tramcar Restaurant has an ambience like no other. The dining “room” has a glowing brass finish and distinctive burgundy livery, reflecting the colonial period. We loved the cosy atmosphere and friendly service. 
As we cruised the scenic streets of Melbourne we enjoyed the healthy custom-designed menu.

The Australian Fitness & Health Expo 
The Australian Fitness & Health Expo will bring to town over 240 exhibitors and more than 30,000 toned bodies who are expected to visit the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre over three days from April 4-6.

From athletes, fitness gurus and weightlifters to exercise equipment, healthy food and clothing, the who's who and the what's what of fitness will be represented across 19,800 square metres offering something for everyone no matter what you like to do to keep fit.

And what do Aussies like to do to keep fit? A recent national survey by the Expo shows that the Gym Workout and Weights are still the most popular choices, followed in rank order by Running, Personal Training, Crossfit and Boxing.

And when it comes to healthy eating:
  • 31% increase exercise around Christmas and Easter so they can consume more treat foods
  • 34% are currently on a diet
  • 42% say diets don't work
The 2014 Australian Fitness & Health Expo will be held from April 4-6 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. The expo is open from 9.30am - 5.30pm daily with Friday only those who work within the fitness and health industry.
