Oh boy, this seems to have come around so fast! Just two more sleeps until we open the doors on Sydney’s first ever Vitality Show and I can’t wait! It really is shaping up to be the definitive ladies’ day out, with pampering, nutrition, fun, retail therapy, champagne and – of course – FITNESS!
There are three stages for you to check out over the course of the weekend:
The Canon Main Stage – think specialist workshops, unique demonstrations, dance performances and celeb appearances.
Empowerment Stage – nourish your mind, learn to clear life obstacles and come away with a wealth of wisdom on health, wellness and empowering yourself.
