What to Expect / How to Plan: 

1. Fitness Idol will take place in the event. We recommend that you check-in at least 20 minutes early at the SCW Registration desk.  They will supply you with the room location.

2. Bring your own music (if needed) with you either on an iPod/iPhone/MP3 Player/CD.  You must test your music BEFORE the competition and turn your phone on airplane mode when you complete.

3. Dress in comfortable, appropriate and professional attire. There are no specific requirements.

4. Be ready to use a microphone like you would in a regular MANIA® presentation.  Please arrive early to test the microphone. SCW will supply a black microphone belt, but please feel free to bring your own.

5. Be ready to present from a stage in front of not only our judges, but an audience of your peers, as well.

They can simply watch from the audience (seating is provided) or workout out with you on the stage or from the ground below.
