Fitness Magazine’s Fit Affair 4 Ticket Giveaway

Fitness Magazine’s Fit Affair series is gaining rapid momentum, as the fourth fitness event in the series is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 1 September 2018.

Fit Affair 3

Before I give you the low down on Fit Affair 4, let me recap Fit Affair 3. The event which took place in June at the Rietvlei Zoo Farm, was an energy filled event that catered for the entire family. There was definitely something for everyone with a wonderful line-up that saw everyone work up a sweat.
The line-up packed a punch with an energetic Boxercise workout by Mika Stefano, who was also the MC for the event. Participants got to muscle up with the functional fitness experience by @train_boutique_fitness. The days drew to a close with a cardio Zumba session with @gusmarimaritz.

The Main Reasons I Attend Fit Affair

  • The event caters for everyone including families. This means that my #FitFam gets to workout with me.
  • I get to meet and hang out with like-minded individuals. The regular Fitness Fanatics show up in all their glory to not only workout, but to encourage and motivate participants who are on their individual fitness journeys.
  • Rather honestly … Fit Affair is a vibe

So, when I was asked to write for the Entertainer Hub about this very topic, I jumped at the opportunity.

The hardest part of any fitness journey is knowing where to start.

FIBO Global Fitness named FitLikeMummy aka “ME”, as the Face & Body Ambassador of the Lifestyle and Fitness show

I recently blogged about the launch of FIBO Africa and the fact that I was over the moon to be one of the Fit Influencer for the event taking place later this year. I received tons of messages of congratulations and well wishes, but I don’t think any of us expected the next phase of my journey.

The Face & Body of FIBO Africa

Monday, 23 July 2018 FIBO Global Fitness named FitLikeMummy aka “ME”, as the Face & Body Ambassador of the Lifestyle and Fitness show. When I started my weight loss journey in January 2017, little did I know or even consider that 19 months later I’d be a Fitness Blogger, Fitness Influencer …. and definitely not the Ambassador of an international fitness show. I mean really, THE FACE & BODY OF FIBO AFRICA! Let me just pinch myself, because that’s actually me that they are referring to.

About FIBO Global Fitness

From Cologne to Shanghai and Johannesburg to the United States, FIBO is expanding its global activities and establishing a direct presence in the target markets. FIBO in Cologne, the Leading International Trade Show for Fitness, Wellness and Health, draws about 1,000 exhibitors and 150,000 visitors to Germany each year. This is where innovations are launched. This is where international trends are set. This is where the industry comes to invest. FIBO China has been the central meeting place of the Asian fitness industry since 2014. FIBO USA will also be launched in 2018, but first it’s time for FIBO Africa to bring the heat.

About FITLIKEMUMMY

I’m a 40-year-old working mom who blogs part-time, and has managed to improve my health and fitness despite being a social butterfly. I’ve spent the past 19 months smashing stereotypes and I have no plans to stop anytime soon. #SMASHEDBYTASH

  2. I will be doing a BIG REVEAL which will take place at the FIBO Festival on Saturday, 27 October. Yes, you heard right! I will be strutting this FACE & BODY on the Saturday, but I can’t do it without you. Please come show your support as I step out of my comfort zone to show your how I have found my FIT in FITness.
  3. Many of you have been wanting to learn to Meal Prep Like a Boss, so join me at the FitFood Zone on Sunday, 28 October 2018 as I will be demonstrating a 7 day meal prep you don’t want to miss.

Fitness is a Fit Affair

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.

A tad frosty

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.
