I always have news about various projects I'm working on and the different events I teach at at weekends and I often forget to say anything about them until it's too late to invite people, friends & fit-fam to come long to.  So I figure the Friday instalment of my new Officiall Fabulous Blog should be #FutureFriday so that you gorgeous lot can know what the future holds!!  With #FutureFriday, I can schedule in telling you where I'll be, where you can find me, what classes or workshops you can attend with me and all other useful details.

Kicking off #FutureFriday is the long awaited Unity Fitness & Dance at the prestigious Crowne Plaza Resort, 5 Lakes, Essex, 7th - 9th August.  It will be my 3rd year with the lovely UFD team and they always make me feel like a super star.  

Fellow presenter Adele McGrath and UFD Organiser Bob Betton... great friends 

UFD is a really cool, relaxed fitness convention where everyone is welcome and all are made to feel part of the group.  In case any of you reading do not know what a fitness convention is... (Where have you been? You need these in your life!)... it is a gathering of people with a common interest in/passion for fitness, be they enthusiasts, completely new to exercise or somewhere in between, with several classes in a row with different options spanning several different styles of class across each hour all taught by experts in their field, known as fitness presenters.  These events can be an afternoon, a day or even a whole weekend from Friday to Sunday (usually with a party on the Friday and Saturday night- often with a fancy dress theme!) They are often in beautiful hotels, such as the Crowne Plaza, 5 Lakes, as is UFD!  And I cannot wait to hit the pool and spa (top of this page).
