Event | BSN and Flex Lewis at Predator Nutrition Leeds

Last month I was pretty excited to get to go to my first ever fitness event, at Predator Nutrition in Leeds, and even better, I got to go with one of my favourite bloggers, Corinne.

The reason for this particular event was two-fold.  First, it was the latest stop on the UK tour for the BSN sponsorted bodybuilder, Flex Lewis and second it introduced a new protein supplement from BSN to the UK.

When we arrived at the Predator Nutrition store, it seemed like it was full to the brim with BSN products and athletes, but not only that it was full of people waiting to meet Flex Lewis.  Before we met with the man himself we spoke a bit with staff at the store and also to one of the other BSN athletes in attendance, Carly Tierney.  She was genuinely lovely (and so pretty) and answered all of our questions about training and nutrition, no matter how daft I felt mine were.  The key thing I took away from meeting Carly was that it's all in the attitude, if you're focussed, you'll get to your goals.

Next up we checked out BSN's new product, Syntha-6 Edge.  I was aware of the original Syntha-6 protein as it's a brand that my own PT recommends so I was really interested to learn that Syntha-6 Edge not only has more protein at around 24g per serving, but is lower in calories, fat, sugar and carbs than the original version too.  Sounds perfect for someone like me who is trying to lose weight.

Last but not least, we got the chance to meet Flex Lewis.  He's a huge deal in bodybuilding circles (my personal trainer was so excited I was meeting him) and amongst many other titles is the three-time winner of the 212 Olympia Showdown, a bodybuiding contest for professional athletes weighing 212lbs or less.  I expected to be hugely intimidated by Flex (especially after researching him a bit the night before) but he came across as a really nice guy and was sharing stories about how he got his start in bodybuilding.  Such an inspiring bloke!

Before I left Predator Nutrition for the afternoon, I had to have a good nosy around too, they stock a great range of supplements of every type and some great food.  I stocked up on some Walden Farms sauces and my new favourite thing, the MusclePharm Combat Crunch Bars.  The chocolate chip cookie dough flavour is a serious life changer, I might have to buy myself a whole case from soon!

Finally I left the store, armed with my purchases and a BSN goodie bag including some sample supplements (the strawberry milkshade protein is delicious), a protein shaker, iPhone case, earphones and a t-shirt (mine had some big holes in it so I can't wear it, but it's the thought that counts).
