Feel Fab Fest 2018 at Suntec City

 

Sure, you told friends you’d hit the gym last week. But you couldn’t miss out on drinks with ex-colleagues, had to bring your dog out for a walk, or just conveniently forgot to bring your workout clothes.

But throw your readily prepared excuses out of the window. On 21 and 22 July, the Feel Fab Fest - a.k.a. F3 - is happening at Suntec Convention Centre Halls 405 & 406 with free classes to get you on the narrow path to healthy living, stat.

Here’s what you can do at this extensive festival:

 

1. Dance at a silent disco and win prizes

When it comes to exercise, you’d think gym garb and endless running on a treadmill. But picture this: a sea of people dancing to tunes that only they can hear, while burning countless calories almost effortlessly.

Saturday night just got a lot more happening with The Fab 80s & 90s Silent Boogie, a silent disco helmed by ONE FM’s Radio DJ Shaun Tupaz. As he spins up those retro beats, bust out your best moves - the most creative dancers stand to win up to $1,000 worth of prizes from Beyerdynamic who are known for their sleek earphones.

Well, that’s a definite upgrade from the silent disco ones.
