MissFits X Be:FIT event with Chessie King
What they say:
When: Sunday 13th November 10am-1pm
Where: Blok London (The Tram Depot, 38-40 Upper Clapton Rd, Lower Clapton, London E5 8BQ)
*Please remember to bring a fitness mat or something to work out on as these won't be provided*
Let make this an event we won't forget. It's all about working out together as girls, getting our sweat on and sharing our fitness experiences!!
What I say:
There are few things I would venture out my zone 1 comfort bubble for, but this was most definitely one of them and, as my made my way to Lower Clapton on the overground last Sunday morning, the groups of girls in printed leggings confirmed it - this is an event I belong at!
What we did:
Arriving at 10am, we were shuffled into a super cool warehouse style studio belonging to Blok London (another one of those boutique fitness studios I've wanted to try for a while!).
10.15 sharp, we went straight into our workout, a HIIT (that's high intensity interval training, FYI) session led by @londonpaleogirl and @alt_healthy_becki - the insta famous personal trainers otherwise known as Tessa and Becki.
|Empty studio soon to fill up!|
And I'm not surprised these girls have so many followers - the class was gruelling - in a good way, so much fun! As founders of the 'Two Peas in a Bod' community, Tessa and Becki are all about team work, and had us partner up to perform exercises with a buddy - mirroring the girls #TrainTogetherGainTogether Philosophy! My friend Lisa and I naturally buddied up, whilst anyone who had initially come alone was teamed up in a pair. With dual circuits of planks, jump squats, mountain climbers, triceps dips, chest presses and more, by the end of workout there were no strangers! This is what I love about events like these, bringing like minded females together to support, encourage and empower one another is such a special thing, and it was so lovely to see many new friendships being formed. !
To finish, Tessa and Becki created a little bit of friendly competition with a fitness challenge - which partner set could jump squat and clap the longest! Extremely relieved when my partner declared her legs couldn't take any more, we sat down whilst the remaining couples battled it out. After what became a bit of an awkwardly long time, Tessa eventually annouced that the 4 remaining couples were all winners, and would be treated to an exclusive PT session. Nice!
|Post workout goodies|
After a minutes silence at 11am to mark remembrance Sunday, we went into a short post workout session, then got stuck into the post workout fuel!
|MissFits - my new go-to protein brand|
With a Sambazon Acai Smoothie bowl in one hand, and of course a delicious Miss Fits protein shake in the other (my favourite is the chocolate, but with under 80 calories and 16g of pea protein isolate you really can't go wrong with any of the delicious flavours), we sat down for a Q&A session with Tessa, Becki and MissFit's new brand ambassador - the beautiful Chessie King.
|Smoothie bowls and Pip and Nut - what more could a girl ask for?!|
Despite their Insta fame, seemingly perfect figures and apparently glamourous lifestyles, these girls were so down to earth it was unreal. Discussing everything from balanced nutrition, to over-exercising, to the pressure on girls today to "be it all" - they were truly inspiring, and I took so much away from their talk.
|Q & A time|
And, as if all this wasn't enough, we all left with AWESOME goody bags featuring goodies from the girls favourite brands. Pip and Nut, Primal Pantry, The Protein Ball Co, Two Chicks, MissFits Nutrition, among st many others, it truly was the healthy icing on the sugar-free cake :P
|One heck of a goodie bag!|
All in all, I had a fantastic time, and I cannot thank the amazing Tara from MissFits enough for providing so many girls such a worthwhile and inspirational morning.
