Traditional annual NIKE fitness-convention was held for the third time at Zaporizhzhya National University on October 23.

This the organizers decided to change form of the arrangement. Beforehand it was aimed at fitness popularization, but now the participants are professional sportsmen of regional scale. Fitness instructors, well known not only in Ukraine, but in the world, held high quality master classes for them.
