Happy Monday everyone! This past week has been a very busy one, but that’s definitely the way I like it!
Last Thursday I attended the #FijiFit event in association with Fiji Water and Barry’s Bootcamp. The event was held in celebration of the launch of the new Fiji Water 700ml bottle. Fiji water bottles have to be without a doubt the best looking and most photogenic water bottles out there right now, haha!
This event was definitely right up my street, a nice and tough workout class, followed by some smoothies and snacks. Barry’s Bootcamp is one of the most well renowned and torturous classes in the city. That being said, it is without a doubt insanely rewarding, and one of the best workouts in the city in my opinion. When I first moved to New York last October, I tried lots of different classes around the city through Class Pass. I remember trying Barry’s Bootcamp because I had the Kardashians were fans. When I walked in I asked if the class was hard, it made sense after why people were basically laughing at me for asking! Spot the clueless immigrant! I had to step out of the class mid way through, and I thought my heart was literally going to stop! I wouldn’t consider myself particularly unfit, but good God I seriously felt like it after that workout. It’s so challenging. If you’re ever visiting the city, I know the last thing you want to do on holidays is work out, but this is a really great example of a classic American workout class. It’s exactly what you would imagine, the instructors literally dance around you, screaming and encouraging you, it’s hilarious. On a side note, I would be completely lying if I said I didn’t feel outrageously out of place at this event. Being there among bloggers that I truly look up to and admire was surreal. I’m also so glad that Erika was there too, and we didn’t even know each other were going until the day before! All in all, it was so flattering and nice to be invited on my own accord and based on my own little blog. Although its all still very new to me and I really am still trying to figure out how to juggle all of the different aspects blogging, I have to say I was chuffed with myself last week for how far I’ve come. AS IF this time last year I thought I would be going to the same events as Something Navy & We Wore What!
I hope everyone has a super week!
Thank you to Fiji Water for the invite to this event!
