Here’s my recap of Filex, AKA: The Australian Health & Fitness Expo, and the Les Mills Super Saturday & Sunday #lmapsuper
I had an absolutely amazing weekend and loved every second of it. Check out what I got up to-
A quick breakfast post 5:55am flight- yum yum. Ps. Butter on wholemeal toast- rocks. I didnt need every slice of toast but couldn’t help taking a few extra bites
We arrived at our hotel- which was so amaze. The Radisson on Flagstaff Gardens blew our expectations out of the water- everyone was super sweet and helpful, and the room was flashy The huge king size bed felt lush.
The Incredible Mark Nu’u (Program Director for BS- aka: The big boss)
The amazing Lisa Osbourne (creative director for BS & head program director for BA)
As soon as we got to Melbourne and checked in, I scooted off to the BodyStep class at the convention centre (where I saw my mentor), with all the amazing International & LMAP Presenters. I’m such a Les Mills groupie that I just had to get photos. Oh and Les Mills 96 is SO good.
Then it was CXWORX time and the CX instructors are so inspirational- it’s a tough release!
Then it was time to check out the Australian Fitness & Health Expo- I was pretty much in heaven
What a find! Thanks Well, Naturally. There Chocolate Orange is also to die for and reminds me so much of Jaffas (and I’m not typically an orange + choc fan!)
Totally the most indulgent tasting protein bars- Titan bars. Whilst I probably wouldn’t treat them as an everyday snack- they’d be a perfect dessert substitute My favourite is the Vanilla Creme- and the chocolate is a close second. Vanilla creme= snickers, chocolate= mars bar. Surprisingly there was a pb one also but it was okay.
I spotted my friends from Slim Secrets. Totally taste tested more than a couple of times.
Then the bf had a hover challenge hahah!
The actual best vending machine
After lots of inspiration and tastings we headed back to the room, where someone needed a 2 hr nap…
After his nap it was dinner time…
things got hot
and I got stuffed to the brim with this amazing and HUGE calzone filled with ham, tomatoes, mushrooms and cheese…oh and cheese. Did I say cheese?
After dinner we needed to walk it off so we went for a little exploration through the Melbourne Crowne Casino and can I just say this place is amazing. There was like water fountains and all these great things.
After a huge sleep we went to the Victoria St Markets where I got a tasty Egg, Mushroom and Spinach tart, which went unphotographed. This fueled me up for a BodyAttack class which was the bees knees. I swear this is the reason I flied to Melbourne- just for these classes.
It was such an amazing weekend and I can’t wait to go back again next year.
- Best eat(s) at Filex: Well, Naturally choccies & protein bars, & Titan Protein Bars
- Fave moment: Doing the BodyStep & BodyAttack classes
- Biggest Inspiration: Lisa Osbourne & this amazing lean male doing Crossfit that would do pull ups and all these amazing things on the bars that made it look crazy easy.
- Greatest challenge: Getting up at 4:45am…wah ha.
- Best meal: The Calzone from an Italian Restaurant.
- Biggest annoyance: a bf who can’t keep up haha and needs naps OR not being able to find a good froyo place- so someone had to go without
