FitFest Oxford and lunch at Dirty Bones
One of my favourite things to do at the weekend is to try a new gym class or place to eat (the irony) so needless to say I was excited to try out Oxford’s new fitness and wellness festival this weekend. Over the course of two days, a variety of high-energy fitness and dance classes were held in the Westgate Centre. With leading experts and influential speakers in the field of fitness, nutrition and mindfulness, intimate cook-a-long demonstrations, glamorous beauty demos and treatments, it sounded just like my kind of thing!
My blogger friend Robyn and I headed down to one of the bootcamp classes where we were put through our paces for a series of circuits. It definitely warmed me up and I think it’s such a nice way of encouraging people to get fitter this year. It was snowing this morning so it was a struggle to leave the warmth of my bed but I definitely warmed up by the end of the workout. I’m currently recovering from a wisdom tooth op so I’ve spared you of the photos of me and my chipmunk face! My workout wear is generally from H&M, Gymshark and Primark, in case you’re wondering.
After the gym class we had a wander round the shops in Westgate Centre before grabbing some lunch at Dirty Bones. There are so many options now for places to eat in Oxford which is great. I’d heard a lot of good things about Dirty Bones and I wasn’t disappointed. We both had a cocktail from the weekend bottomless brunch menu – mine had coffee in obvs.
Robyn had the halloumi salad which I would have chosen myself if I could chew properly but instead I went for the poached eggs with smoked salmon on crumpets. It was my first experience of hollandaise sauce and delicious though it was, I couldn’t finish it all because it was so rich! I do need to go back and try the chicken and waffles though…they sound nice and light 😉
