What is there not to like about a free event – especially one that provides a myriad selection of holistic health programmes for everyone?
Come 21 and 22 July, Singapore Press Holdings’ (SPH) Feel Fab Fest, or F3 for short, will bring exactly this to the public.
Collaborating with health and fitness authority ActiveSG, as well as other partners, its organisers have designed an exciting programme catered to people from all walks of life.
Sharing more about the event, SPH’s Head of Marketing Communications Koh Weng Wai said: “Health and fitness doesn’t necessarily mean going to the gym every day.
There are a lot of things that you can do, [and] a lot of food that you can eat. It’s a combination of various lifestyle factors that will impact your well-being. That’s what F3 hopes to stress.”
F3 will feature seminars and talks, sport and fitness sessions, music performances, an urban farming demo, a junior chef competition, and music performances.
Among these are programmes supported by ActiveSG, including MEGADANZ, FIGHT-DO, and OXIGENO Workouts in partnership with Radical Fitness, the ActiveSG Football Academy’s unique Singapore Football Festival Fab 4 Football Challenge, and the Red-X Functional Fitness Workout by Superfit Singapore.
According to Koh, working with ActiveSG was a natural decision, given their experience and expertise in fitness and wellness.
He remarked: “It makes our event something very reputable. ActiveSG recognises the value of sport and healthy living, as well as developing people regardless of age. Most importantly, they also emphasise building communities and bonding through sport.”
ActiveSG Team Lead Sharifa Norliza added: “We take pride in being at the forefront of fitness programming. It’s a publicity opportunity for us too. The event is free, so people can try these activities out. If they’re interested, they can find these programmes with ActiveSG too!”
A contributor to F3’s programming, Sharifa had brought Radical Fitness on board to offer three novel programmes with different fitness objectives.
Explaining the reasons behind the three specific workouts chosen, Radical Fitness Singapore’s Director Linda Lim noted: “[Combat-style cardio workout] FIGHT-DO has been around for some time, and we know that people enjoy it.”
She continued: “MEGADANZ and OXIGENIO are newer workouts that we recently brought to Singapore. Sharifa and I agreed that dance fitness would be quite an attractive prospect, so we picked MEGADANZ as the highlight, with master trainer Ruby Wang flying in from our Asian headquarters in Taiwan to conduct the class.”
“OXIGENIO is a stretch class, which people can take part in after finishing their cardio workouts. It’s a good form of relaxation for us city people too,” she pointed out.
Besides boosting their fitness routines with these fun new workouts, Sharifa and Lim also hope that F3 will show participants how much more there is to leading a healthy lifestyle, and that there will always be something out there for them to try out.
Apart from presenting radical new programmes, organisers and partners alike seek to emphasise the importance of all-round wellness, hence the inclusion of health seminars, live band performances, sessions on nutrition, and the like.
In fact, Lim enthused: “It’s like a carnival for everyone, with fitness factors involved! Apart from the Radical Fitness sessions, there’s a whole selection of other things that they’re keen to take part in. It’s great that the different activities all complement each other, so that the public can get healthy together.”
“Through F3, SPH and its partners – including ActiveSG – want to create a platform that allows people to have an experience, whether it’s eating healthily or participating in a fitness activity, whether it’s sport or music. If you’re not doing this regularly, let this be a start for you. If you are, then let this be fuel to keep you going,” Koh surmised.
The Feel Fab Fest will be held from 21 to 22 July, at the Suntec Convention Centre Halls 405 and 406. Learn more about the programmes here!
