We’re getting closer and closer to those Summer months, and what better way to get ready than to hit all of those fitness goals in one hit!
Yep, one hit. We’re talking about a 45-minute workout, picking up your top supplements and even treating yourself to Newcastle’s best healthy treats at Buzz.
The Junction Fair is known for its incredibly diverse and unique range of stores, but one thing the place is good at is health & fitness. We headed down to the fair to check out what all the fuss was about and even got to enjoy what we might think is the best Acai bowl in town!
12 RND Fitness
Unlike any other fitness regime, you’ve tried before, the concept behind 12RND Fitness is built around functional strength, conditioning and sports-based cardio activities; offering the ultimate total body workout.
So, what can we expect from these workouts?
“Our workouts are designed around a 12 round boxing contest and combine functional strength and cardio exercises with boxing skills and drills – with a dynamic, new program every day its fast and never boring.”
With a new round starting every 3 minutes, you can get in, have a great work out and be finished within 45 minutes.

Best Body Supplements
These guys really know their supplements. By taking a holistic approach and incorporating their comprehensive knowledge, training, experience, and affiliations with Industry leaders; the team at Best Body Supplements want to be your go-to, to help you get to your Best Body.
Don’t know anything about supplements? Think they’re just for the gym-goers? Ah, well; think again! We chatted with Owner Tim about how supplements can help anyone, with any body type.
“The one thing about Best Body is that we’re promoting to the entire public that supplements are utilised for everyone, not just the gym-goers. Everyone can benefit, whether that might be an elderly person that has joint pain…people playing sport that want to recover quicker”.
With an incredibly extensive range, you’ll be able to find everything you’re looking for from protein to ready-made meals!
“Everything from your natural products; whether it’s protein to your vitamins, your minerals all the way through to your amino acids. We’ve even got snack foods; like protein bars and protein cookies. We stock ready-made meals, calorie-free dressings, and sauces…the range is quite broad".

You’ve done your workout, picked up your supplements now you’ve just GOT to get to Buzz to indulge in some healthy treats.
Now, word around town is that these guys serve up the best Acai bowl across town, so naturally, we volunteered to try it out!
Chatting to owner of Buzz, Diana tells us why their Acai Bowl is just so damn delicious.
“It’s very rewarding to apply creativity to a product so that it not only tastes amazing but is so visually appealing! Our staff all take great pride in their individual topping styles and we get such a ‘buzz’ from seeing the absolute delight on our customer's faces when they collect the finished product”.
The small hole-in-the-wall styled juice and protein bar also provides a range of gluten free, sugar free, dairy free and even vegan treats! With something to appeal to all taste buds, Buzz is also a great spot to pick up some lunch with their range of delicious sandwiches, gluten-free pizzas, and Turkish breads.
It really is a place “where healthy has never looked so good”
