My Day at the London Health Show 2016

20:29

On Wednesday I attended the London Health Show at Kensington Olympia, a trade exhibition for people working in all sectors of the health and fitness industry. It's a great opportunity to meet like-minded people, network, learn new things and discover new companies and products to try.

I was so excited that I managed to get my hands on a press pass and as soon as I walked into the room I was like "I'm among my people!" Everyone was there for the same reason, because they're passionate about health.

It was actually a two-day event, spanning both Wednesday and Thursday, and you could attend either day or both. The show was opened with a speech by TV's Dr Christian Jessen (which I missed due to train delays, although I did spot him walking around the show afterwards).

Then there were some fitness demonstrations:

Belly dancing

Zumba

Plenty of speeches to listen to:

 




And some amazing food and drink to try!

Praana Tea

Tempeh chips

Paleo treats (which didn't last long)

and Kale-Os? More like Kale-OMGs.
 
I just want to take a moment here to talk about these kale crisps because they were my favourite find of the day. They taste so good (the sweet chilli & mint flavour is ridiculous) and they're completely guilt free - it's literally just dehydrated kale with natural flavourings. Everyone was all over them and I loved them so much I bought a whole box.
 
So was there anything I didn't like about the London Health Show 2016? Just two things: a 500ml bottle of water inside the venue cost me £2.20 (that's expensive even for London) and someone tried to sell me life insurance! Apart from that, I really enjoyed the day and am already looking forward to next year.

  2. Sounds like a great event! I think it's so awful how these places charge an arm and a leg for water. What do they expect you to do? Dehydrate?! It really annoys me! x www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

    1. Hi Aimee! It was a fun day :) They charge that because they can get away with it; you have to drink so you'll pay whatever!
