Neat x Be:Fit London
Be:Fit London is a Health and fitness festival for women and also happens to be where Neat Nutrition launched on 1st May 2015. We sold our first ever product that day and a year later we came back to celebrate an amazing year.
The three day event was packed with amazing classes and talks from people across the health and fitness industry. We were chuffed to see a lot of our friends and partners taking part, with free classes offered by Frame, 1Rebel, Third Space and Core Collective among others.
Our stall was part of the shopping village and we had great company in the form of Fitty London who we love working with on their monthly fitness boxes. Our stand was very conveniently located opposite the Heck stall, from where the smell of sausages wafted all day. We may or may not have joined the queue for samples more than once! We met Pic’s peanut butter who’s exclusively Kiwi staff were more than happy to let us try their cashew, almond and peanut butters. We do enjoy a nut butter!
Friday was busy from the offset and we didn’t stop all weekend. We had a visit from two thirds of the Girl Gains crew when Tally and Zanna stopped by to take a photo. We heard their class was awesome! AJ Odudu was roaming the venue with her jazzy purple bumbag which she insisted Lee could pull off… we weren't so sure!
Speaking of Lee. We took the opportunity to launch the Neat Snapchat over the Be:Fit weekend and of course used it as an excuse to make Lee look super handsome.
You can follow us on Snapchat for more fun and excitement, including what it’s like working in a start-up and who is better at squats, Lee or Charlie? Look for us at neat_nutrition.
Last year we had a tribe of lovely young men representing Neat Nutrition, but this year we evened things out a little with the addition of the girls in the Neat team; Catty, Ilona and Chess. The girls loved the atmosphere of the event and getting a chance to talk to ladies just like them about protein, exercise and nutrition. They also loved a good photo op.
The braid bar in the VIP lounge was rather popular and each hour we saw more fabulous ladies appearing with snazzy braids. We met our competition winners, the lovely women who won tickets for the show through our social media. Here’s Bethany and Laura who both had a fab day sampling the delights of the shopping village and making the most of those classes.
We got some great birthday cards from you all and displayed the proudly on our stand. It really is such a cool feeling that you were as excited about our birthday as we were. The birthday hats were a pretty popular prop choice for our photo board too.
Finally, all weekend we held a lucky dip for everyone who bought a product over the three days. We had some lovely Elemis minis, Rude Health bars and Kobox, Frame and Ride Republic classes on offer. The main prize though, was a Lululemon outfit of your choice, Elemis and Neom Organics goodies and a Neat bundle of your choosing. The lucky winner was Faye who was chuffed to bits about winning such an awesome haul.
It was a crazy, fun and tiring three days (thank goodness for Bank Holidays!) but we loved every minute of it. Did you come along to Be:Fit and chat with us? We’d love to hear what you thought of the weekend in the comments.
