You may have seen already via Instagram and Twitter, that we ran a Healthy Selfie takeover day @ Lomax PT, Chelsea this weekend, which has to be by far one of the coolest gyms we’ve ever been to. The classes there are awesome and the ‘Podular’ Training set up is inspired… No more sharing the squat rack.
Come 1pm on Saturday, the Grill Market cafe was buzzing with fitness blogger babes stripping down to their brightly coloured neon sports apparel (we’ve never seen quite such an array of colours!), and getting sweaty with friend of Healthy Selfie HQ and Lomax PT Trainer, Celia (aka: @londonfitnessguide) during an intense Cycle Blast class.
Although all of the ladies emerged from the class still looking fresh with more of an energised ‘glow’ as opposed to sheer exhaustion, you can see how tough the class was by playing spot the difference between the two photos below.
Post session, thirsts were quenched with ice cold nuts from CocoFaceUK – hand served by the founder Charlie nonetheless.
CocoFace is an incredible company that import their sweet young coconuts straight from a farm in Thailand and have recently sold their MILLIONTH nut. Having lived in Hong Kong before launching Healthy Selfie and being spoilt with fresh coconuts in the fridge on a permanent basis, it was amazing to have some that were equally (if not more) sweet than what I’ve had before. Not just that, but they do home delivery – so if anyone loves them as much as I do… And is prepared to sacrifice a little space in the fridge, check out their website. Gone are the days of the milkman, bring on the Nuts Guy….”From tree to you with love”.
The fun didn’t end there – salads and grilled meats were served by the Grill Market Cafe that sits beneath Lomax after the class. If you are around the area, it’s a must visit. Unlike a lot of the other healthy food hotspots I’ve tried before, this isn’t vegan or raw! Toppings included chicken, halloumi and a sweet potato burger on beds of well seasoned quinoa, kale and beet salad. I also tried a healthy homemade snickers bar which was…. Insane.
Perhaps the best part of Saturday’s event were the goodie bags that we handed out to all of our special guests. Some absolutely incredible brands came together to create a collection of treats that I wanted to keep for myself.
