I am fortunate to be invited to many prestigious events, launches and premieres, and¬†I was particularly¬†excited to have been invited to the launch of the newest additions to the Fitbit line-up, the Flex 2 and Charge 2. Guests at the event included Comedian and my good friend, Siv Ngesi as well as¬†Olympic Medalist Swimmer¬†Cameron van der Burgh who shared his journey with Fitbit and how it has benifited¬†his training regime. Whether you simply enjoy the occasional run or swim or you’re a pro-athlete, Fitbit has a device that suits and is geared to help improve your lifestyle. As a fitness fanatic myself, these are certainly must-have devices to monitor and help you reach your fitness goals and I was thrilled¬†to get my hands on these new and improved devices.
