If you have been following my journey, you are probably asking yourself why I attended Fitness Magazine’s Fit Affair 2.0 that was held in Pretoria this weekend.
Well, it’s pretty simple. Firsly, I love fitness events. Secondly, fitness is a lifestyle and even though I may be battling an injury it is important that my mental game is strong. That’s why attending Fit Affair 2.0 was a no brainer. Thirdly, you can’t beat the energy and vibe at a fitness event. Events like these allow me the opportunity to keep the momentum going. Besides, it means I get to hang and workout with my #fitfam and that’s the best part of it.
It’s the beginning of winter and the temperature at 8am was a chilly 8 degrees celsius. The cold start didn’t last very long and the sun soon began to bake down on us, it wasn’t long before we started to feel the heat.
The lineup started off with a stretch and activation session, which was followed by a Brazilian Booty workout which had us moving to the beat. This was pretty much the only workout I could get involved in so I did my own thing and made the most of it. It’s about listening to my body (and my doctor) but keeping my energy and spirits high. It’s super easy to become demotivated and frustrated when faced with an injury, which in turn can see you fall off the bus. I’ve come too far to let a set-back mess me up, so I’d rather be the girl who finds the silver lining.
The last session was a HIIT workout, which I couldn’t do at all. I must admit I had a serious case of FOMO watching from the sidelines. I was however able to play photographer and it was amazing to watch my friends embrace this fitness event. They were in it to win it and gave it their all. I was so glad they decided to join me for this event because they left feeling amped and motivated. Now this is what fitness events do for me and I was glad that I got to share it with my friends.
All in all another fabulous morning of getting up and getting moving. Really hoping to see you at the next fitness event. Check my Instagram account for more deets.
