Lifestyle: Fitness First Blogger Event

Fitness First Blogger Event

With two city breaks and an exciting blogger event to organise in between, Q2 of 2017 started promising. This time I worked for Fitness First and organised an evening of spinning and athletics at their newly refurbished gym in Fenchurch Street.

Located very conveniently in the Aldgate area, the Fitness First gym in Fenchurch Street is easily accessible from Sky Garden or Tower Hill. The gym had recently had a total revamp and now has a classroom for body combat, a spinning box and an athletics track added to the usual workout facilities. To spread the word about the brand new additions, I invited eight fitness blogger along for an evening of spinning and athletics with a competitive twist.

The evening started with a 20-minute spinning class and our Fitness First instructor Rachel made sure our bloggers got their heart rates up. After a short warm-up period, there was pumping club music, multi-coloured lighting, lots of sweat and motivation filling the room in no time. Rachel prepared a full on action-packed choreography and soon the room bursted with an high energy atmosphere.

This time I hired my friend Ben Kapur as my photographer for the night. He kindly shot the event and made sure no one had to worry about missing out on taking photos whilst working out. To be honest the lighting in the spinning room was challenging and Ben did a fantastic job in capturing everyone in great shots. I've shared my favourite pictures from the night including Clare preparing for the running session and Rachel motivating the bloggers during the spinning class. He even cheekily caught me in an unattentive moment!

After the spinning, Rachel ran a 30-minute athletics class with the bloggers including a variety of exercises including running on the track and small functional training sessions. This time though, we spiced things up a bit with a competitive element. As a special treat our top three performing bloggers would go home with a FitBit Charge Two to further support them in their fitness regime and workout. 

Around 8pm we finished the event with a post-workout salad and a chat which was great as I met some of the bloggers during my John Lewis MyWellbeing event back in February and it was a lovely occasion to catch up with everyone - especially as I don't have much time these days for blogging, I love that my job provides me with the opportunity to still engage with the community and contribute actively to it.

And of course, we did an obligatory group picture :) It was a lovely evening and I had a lot of fun being a part of the event and making it special for our bloggers. Thank you so much for checking out today's Fitness First Blogging Event at Fenchurch Street.

Till next time,
