Last year I attended Sweat Life – you can view my blog post here: www.keziafitco.co.uk/sweatlife-festival-2017/ so this year I thought I would go for something different and see what SB Live is all about.
It is advertised as the wellness event of the year, with the best of fashion, fitness and food all under one roof. Not to mention his was the 20th birthday so expectations were high.
They were offering:
- Healthy food
- Beauty area
- 25% off Sweaty Betty clothing
- 20% off everything else
- Goody bag worth £70
There were 3 ticket options:
- £35 – one class, talks and £70 goody bag
- £40 – two classes, talks and £70 goody bag
- £60 – unlimited classes, queue jump, talks and £200 goody bag
And three time slots:
- Morning (8:30 – 12:30)
- Afternoon (12:30 – 16:30)
- Evening (16:30 – 20:30)
We went for the 2nd option – 2 classes included, and we opted to get there at the crazy time of 8:30am on a Saturday. Please believe this meant to getting up at 6am on Saturday morning – dedication.
Pre purchase you are unable to view the class availability so we were initially very disappointed. After spending £40 we logged into the class booking site to find most of the classes were full and there were few with ‘limited spaces’ remaining. I can’t really say we had much of a choice but we were able to pick one yoga session and one sweat session.
The event took place in the city in a very large warehouse type building. The Old Truman Brewery, Ely’s Yard, 15 Hanbury Street, London, E1 6QR
The first class we opted in for was:
Another Space Yoga
This class worked on strength and flexibility in equal measures. It combined traditional yoga movement with a dynamin flow to raise your heart rate. Not as relaxing as the yoga that I’m used to but was a new experience.
And the final class was:
Third Space Metaburn
This high-intensity metabolic conditioning workout using a mix of weighted upper body and lower body exercises combined with cardio intervals for a super-toned body. Building up to 7 exercises or eliminating back down to build a lean and strong physique.
Unfortunately there wasn’t the time to attend any talks.
We took advantage of the photo opportunities around the venue, had a browse in the shops and bought some healthy food to refuel.
Due to a mix up on the door I was actually given a VIP wrist band so was able to access the exclusive VIP area. In all honesty it was nothing special – there was a nice relaxed chill out area to sit down and eat your food away from all the crowds. They handed out free drinks and Duck and Rye were available to do your hair I believe free of charge.
Hair dressing doesn’t interest me as no one there would be able to do my hair. I don’t think I would have the energy to do more than 2 classes so for me it wouldn’t be worth the extra £20.
As my friend had the standard pass and I had the VIP I was a able to compare the goody bags. In the picture below you can see the contents of mine – pretty good freebies. I think the contents to come up to over £200 as well. The Murad cream is £51 and the top is worth £40 so that’s £91 already.
- Tea Pigs
- Eyeko Yoga Mascara
- Murad nutrient charged gel water
- Urban Veda soothing day cream sample
- Sweaty Betty top
- Natural Deodorant
- Tangle Teezer
- Dry Shampoo
- Rebel Kitchen Chocolate Milk
- Primroses Kitchen Museli
- Brave roasted peas
- Bounce protein bite
- Pulsin bar
- Oskia eye cream
- Emily veg crisps
- Ape coconut puffs
- Fresh Vitamin Nectar
- Sukin foaming facial cleanser
- Pretty Athletic workout glow
- 20% off Sweaty Betty voucher
- Psycle free class
My friend had the same goody bag but smaller. Had the same contents minus the dry shampoo, Murad cream, tangle teezer and tea pigs. So I would say about £80 worth of content less.
It was a really fun and active day out. Great change for a weekend activity as it keeps you healthy and active and differs from the normal drinks on a night out.
