Be:Fit London 2016 – An honest opinion

This weekend I took myself to London, which is pretty much always a treat for me, I love the rush of being in the capital. My reason for visiting is the fact I was heading to ‘Be:Fit London‘ for the first time and I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was hoping for great things. Firstly, if you are a single male reader, head to ‘Be:Fit‘ next year! So many glossy, beautiful young women under one roof, if you like a selfie? This is the perfect venue – Where is my ‘Instagram Husband‘ when I need him?  Ahhh, he’s at home doing productive manly stuff like building a shed.

I’m going off topic, let me tell you about the day…

What did I love? 

* The venue was easy to find, this is an absolute must for a none Londoner like myself – I can almost never find venues first time.

*I had a wonderful back and shoulder massage from Katy (great name) at ‘Cloud 9‘ and I felt really refreshed after. Oh to hell with it, I’m going to be completely honest and say that was one of the best parts of the day.

*There was great deals from various companies – For example: Heck Sausages (4 packs for £10), super cheap Nakd bars and Metcalfe were giving away free popcorn.

*Thanks to Instagram and Gluten Free B, another highlight was winning a goodie bag from Perkier who produce absolutely scrumptious bars and oat’s.

*Listening to the Zanna Van Dijk talk, but I will cover that in more detail below, as she made some very interesting points.

What did I dislike? 

*Limited food options unless you wanted a £12 salad or lots of samples. However, credit where it’s due there were places nearby and you could return as long as you were ‘stamped‘ on the hand.

*I sampled a PHD ‘meal replacement bar‘ and frankly it was an insult to my taste-buds. Apart from the beautiful Pamela from Spamella B, the staff were silent and uninterested. But admittedly very young and in sensational shape, maybe it’s from resisting all those bar’s?

*There was nothing *new* that really jumped out at me from a consumer point of view. I enjoyed the fact there was a reasonable mix of brands and many of the products I tried were great but nothing to get too excited about. Maybe it’s just me, but I do like an exciting discovery from time to time…

Overall It was an enjoyable event and I’m glad I went, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to return in 2017. On the other hand (because I like to be positive) I think the only thing that would encourage me to return next year is a few talks of interest on the same day. Or even if I was doing something else in London and I could include it as part of the day trip.

On to the Zanna Van Dijk talk about ‘How to make it in blogging‘.

This was one of the main reasons I chose Saturday to attend Be:Fit. I follow Zanna via social media because I enjoy her relaxed, honest style and ‘can do‘ attitude to business/blogging and was interested to hear more.

Here are some of the key points I picked up which I hope will be interesting/helpful:
