On Friday evening I went for round two of ‘The Pack’ joining The Everyday Man John Robertson’s yellow ‘Tech Pack’, this time at Virgin Active Walbrook.
I know Charlie well after previosuly meeting at events, but it was the first time meeting John, Lucie and Josie offline and what a great way to meet for the first time!
As before Soulmate food were on hand to provide delicious post-workout protein shakes.
A few weeks back, I was invited by Virgin Active Health Clubs to join them for a very special blogger event to launch the brand new immersive team-based cycle class, ‘The Pack’.
Taking place at the very swish Virgin Active Health Club Mayfair, we were split into three teams (or packs in this instance); The Fashion Pack, The Beauty Pack and The Foodie Pack. Each pack had a designated pack leader and five team members from the same blogging category. I was on The Fashion Pack, which was led by leading male lifestyle blogger, Ali Gordon. It was my first time meeting Ali and we hit it off straight away.
My fellow pack members also included the lovely Lottie Murphy, who if you haven’t discovered yet is a fantastic ‘fitspiration’ fitness blogger.
The Pack is no ordinary cycle experience, the innovative 45-minute workout brings together cutting edge competitive challenges and technology into a high-intensity cycle challenge created to harness the motivating power of teamwork in a new, gamified format.
The three teams go head-to-head in a series of challenges, where the effort of each rider contributes to the progress of their team, which is projected on a cinema-style screen so riders can keep tabs on their progress. Think lots of lights, pumping music and a great workout!
Although The Fashion Pack put in plenty of legwork over the 45-minutes of head-to-head challenges, it was ‘The Beauty Pack’ led by Zoe London, who took home the title of pack winners.
After a quick refresh and complimentary hair styling, we were treated to post-event snacks curated by food vlogger, In the Kitchen with Kate and Soulmate Foods. The peanut crunch flapjacks were to die for! – the perfect post-pack refuel.
So if you’re looking to mix up your workout routine and make some new pack-pals in the process, this is the class for you!
