It seems there is a lot going on back home this past week and plenty more to come in the following week! While I am foody-ing it up in Japan, I have my trusty Health and Brisbane Food Junkies (aka. contributors) covering all the action on AUS soil!
With the vast amount of openings and launches taking place, I thought it would be easiest to cover it all in the one post…
So prepare your tastebuds and get ready to get your #health on, here’s what should be on your to-do list this week:
Barre Brisbane is here!
Have you heard the news? Barre workouts are officially starting @ West End come the 25th of February, 2016. Founder, Ash Daniec, stumbled across the celebrity workout in NYC and thankfully bought it home to AUS for all of us not-so-A-listers folk. The once top secret workouts use a ballet barre and tiny, isometric movements to burn fat and sculpt long, lean muscles. Combining yoga, pilates and ballet conditioning exercises, Barre is a complete body workout worth your attention.
WHEN: first classes start 25th February with 23 classes offered 6 days a week | WHERE: 347 Montague Road, West End | MORE DETAILS: www.barrebrisbane.com.au
Kiss the Berry Sweat Sessions Return – FOR FREE
The berry gals are back and ready to get your 2016 back in shape, this time for free. What usually cost $20 has now been upgraded to free-of-charge, which is just what we all love to hear. Follow your Saturday morning workout with an Acai bowl back at Acai Headquarters a.k.a. Kiss The Berry Southbank (note: acai bowl is not free of charge, but so worth the $15).

Di Bella Coffee’s NEW Crop to Cup Exclusives
Calling all coffee connoisseurs (dare I say snobs?) and wannabe connoisseurs (most of us). Di Bella Coffees has just launched their new range of ‘Crop to Cup Exclusives’ which features once in a lifetime Panama Geisha Coffee. The Geisha varietal is world recognised for being one of the finest coffees available, with stone fruit sweetness and the tart acidity of peach, it’s something you would be silly to miss. The Panama Geisha beans are hand-selected and exclusive to Di Bella Coffees and after test tasting it ourselves, it’s worth the visit.
WHEN: 2015/2016 crop now available | WHERE: Di Bella Coffee Brisbane, 82 Abbotsford Rd, Bowen Hills | MORE DETAILS: http://dibellacoffee.com
