Healthy Living London was invited to the Gillette Venus morning workout party at Fabric in London; a brightly coloured and energetic dance class to get everyone motivated for the day ahead. Inspired by research that claims bright colours give you more confidence and get you motivated, the people at Gillette have created a handy little pink and orange razor that brightens up your gym bag. What better way to introduce the Venus Snap than pair it with an energy packed dance session!
I am the first to confess that I am not, definitely not, a morning person! For those that know me well, know that this is not so much a confession as it is a statement of fact! So, when I was invited to a morning rave, I was a little hesitant at first, but with a little persuasion, I agreed to go along and I am so glad I did. Having never been to Fabric before, I was expecting sticky floors and the smell of alcohol stained furniture, however, we were led onto a dance floor that was clean and absent of any nightclub residue.
“75% of women say brights make them feel more motivated , energised and confident!”
The disco lights came on (at 8.30 in the morning!) as DJ Caz mixed up the music with party pumping tunes to get us moving. Gede led us through some awesome dance moves that raised our heart rates and kept us bouncing for the next hour! Motivational music and funky moves made the hour fly by with plenty of smiles and a little singing along! An energy packed class filled with familiar routines and some sultry poses. I will be heading to FRAME to take another class with Gede soon. Her enthusiasm and constant energy is inspiring and a great way to begin your day.
We loved feeling motivated and ready for the day ahead. Gede was a fabulous instructor full of enthusiasm and endless energy. The dance workout aptly ended with Bananarama’s Venus, paired with a few sultry stretches. It was a lovely surprise to be given a generous gift bag with our very own Venus Snap razor, hair bands and even a bunch of flowers! What a way to start the day!
So What Did We Think Of The Razor?
Hannah – I love the case that it comes in; bright and easy to find in a gym bag. The pink casing is also a wonderful finger protector when travelling… no more cutting your fingers on those blades when delving into your wash kit! The razor has a small and soft, yet easy to grip, handle and the blades can be replaced with Venus’ Embrace refills. They have the signature ‘MoistureGlide’ ribbon that protects your skin whilst you shave. I’m a fan and would add it to my top five post workout kit essentials.
Rosie – Going into a nightclub at 8am completely sober > stumbling out of one and having to head home to face plant the bed. Whilst the class worked up a sweat, it gave us so much energy and it was great having such an enthusiastic instructor whose moves were far too good for your average nightclub dance floor.
Top takeaways: if you can fit in a morning workout then it’s definitely worth it. Who doesn’t want to start their day off in a good and energetic mood?
Wear bright colours! A study showed that bright colours such as pink and orange help with your mood as well as your energy levels!
Dance! Dancing has to be one of the most enjoyable ways to get moving. A workout that doesn’t feel like a workout is so much more enjoyable than counting reps at the gym.
