This post is in Collaboration with Fit Londoners
Yesterday I headed to The London Health Show with Fit Londoners. Fit Londoners are a growing fitness hub based in London and will very soon be the place to go to hear all the buzz around all things Health and Fitness in London. So come an follow us and ‘Work out the London way’ We were quite the team yesterday, Myself and Sammy presenting and interviewing people, five photographers/videographers, the event manager of Fit Londoners for this occasion and Roshane from Fit Londoners HQ.
The event was held at London Olympia and was actually a launch event so the first London Health Show to be held. There were lots of exhibitors from different realms of health and fitness from supplements, to new fitness apps, to gyms and new classes to massage therapy. As well as all of these stalls and stands there was also a live Demo area where there were interactive sessions and we obviously joined in! As soon as we arrived and set ourselves up in an area it was time to go and join in with a demo from ‘Jumping Fitness’. This was something I had seen on the internet before and there are some crazy classes about! You each have a trampette that has a handle on the front for your stability. It was hard! WAY harder than he made it look, especially when it came to trying to get your knees up! Here’s a picture of me and Sammy joining in the fun:
We then spent some time making our way around the exhibition centre speaking with Brands finding out who they are and what they were representing. One of my favourites was meeting Tessa Seward who is known on Instagram as @londonpaleogirl. She is the Founder of CoFro, frozen coconut yoghurt. I have been following her for some time and her product is Vegan and a healthy alternative to ice cream and frozen yoghurt. I topped my sample with Pip and Nut Coconut Almond Butter- a match made in heaven! Go and give her a follow on Instagram and you can keep up to date and hopefully catch her at one of her next pop-ups in London.
Anyone who knows me know that if I am presented with a challenge, I’m going to take it. So when I popped by the British Military Fitness stand and saw two challenges and leaderboards, I was not about to pass them up! There was a weighted russian twist challenge with a variety of medicine balls and a squat thrusters challenge with a core bag. Each challenge was how many reps you could get in one minute. I topped both leaderboards when I left the Show with 83 Russian Twists with an 8kg ball and 45 Squat Thrusters with 10kg. The winner of each challenge across both days of the health show would win one month of classes- great right!
We also joined in a Zumba class and tried out some Hula Fit, both good, fun ways to keep fit or get into fitness if the idea of going to a regular gym isn’t your kind of thing.
Fit Londoners made some great contacts and connections yesterday and we managed to capture most of or day on camera so be sure to keep an eye out on Fit Londoners social media profiles for the launch of their youtube channel so you can see exactly what we got up to, interviews with The London Health Show organisers (Oliver Kinross), various brands and classes we took part in! These are just some of my highlights of the day so stay tuned for the full video tour of our experience!
Given the HUGE success of this years launch event, The London Health have confirmed they’ll be back for 2017 already making it an annual event.
Sammy and I had a really great day and had a great team around us ensuring it all went smoothly and we could have as much fun as possible with it!
