1mpact Launch Party at the 1Rebel Gym in London

Hello lovelies,
This week I had the opportunity to be part of the 1mpact brand launch at the 1Rebel gym in London. It was the first blogger event I had had a chance to go to which made it even more exciting for me.

1mpact is a new brand that aims to connect people within the fitness & health industry from bloggers to models & brands. And these were exactly the people who were at the launch party this week. So honoured that I was able to be a part of it.

So the launch started at 7pm on Thursday evening and consisted of a workout at the 1rebel gym followed by deliciously healthy food from loads of brand such as neatnutrition, vita coco, pip & nut and many more & of course some bubbly to celebrate the creation of the new 1mpact brand. There were also other brands from the industry present such a sports clothing brand Gymluxe.  Oh and of course there were fabulous people braiding all our sweaty hair hahah. What would a party be without braids?!


First up was the workout. One could choose between two 1Rebel classes either Rumble or Reshape. I should have done more research before but I hadn’t which meant I had NO IDEA what I had gotten myself into when I sign up for Reshape. Reshape ended up being a running & weights class. Half the class started on the running machines while the other half started with the dumbbells. If you’ve been following me for long enough you should know which one I picked – that’s right the weights! The class was then split into four rounds; weights, running, weights, running... yes I died a little. The workout was absolute killer but it was amazing. The workout studio was blasting music, had coloured lights that changed depending on the intensity of the workout. I must say I was really impressed by the 1Rebel gym equipment.

After the workout we headed back into the very fancy changing rooms grabbed a few cold towels out of the fridges and tried to make our faces look a little less tomatoe-y. Once I had just about stopped sweating and looked semi-acceptable again it was time to hit the food.

From coconut water to protein shakes, quinoa salads, meatballs, brown rice & nut butters. There was everything that the fittie’s heart desired. Then as mentioned before one of the main attractions was getting our hair braided by some amazing hair artists.

As if having a killer workout in a fancy gym and loads of delicious healthy food wasn’t amazing enough I had the chance to meet loads of like-minded people. Some I already knew from online and others that I will from now on stalk online.

All in all, a fabulous event.
Congratulations to the 1mpact team I’m sure there are great things ahead! 

Stay happy & healthy sweeties

  1. Elated to know about this impact launch party. Couple of weeks ago, I arranged my office outdoor event at a graceful venue New York and decorated it with amazing flowers. All my colleagues attended this event and excellent time.
