Fitness booths at cons

I am a Beachbody coach (the company that does P90X, Insanity, Body Beast, 21 Day Fix, and a lot more.) Being a nerd and a cosplayer myself, my goal is to help others have success and get into better shape like I have done myself. I am wanting to set up a booth at some of the smaller cons in my area in hopes of helping other's like me.

My question for everyone is this; how would you like to see a booth like this set up in a con around you? Would you stop by and talk to the person running it and see how they can help you?

I would!

I'm in need for more motivation. Unfortunately, my only exercise consists of attending 2-hour martial arts classes 2x a week, and walking 2 - 3 times in 10 - 15 minute intervals at work.

Personally, I think that would be super cool, but I wonder if others might find it off-putting.

I wonder this, too. While I bet you'd get a lot of positive interest, some people could take it the wrong way as whatever con you're attending endorsing the "perfect cosplay body" idea. Which some people go for, but others find stressful or hurtful. It'd be tricky to gauge what reaction will be until you actually try doing a booth at a con. Have you heard of any other fitness groups having con booths before? I'm trying to remember all the cons I've been to and can't recall any, though there is a "Jesus loves gamers" booth at PAX sometimes so it wouldn't be the weirdest thing...

You might have better luck running a Q&A style panel?
