Ah good old April Fool’s Day. You’ve gotta love it. A day when at least half of your female Facebook friends will announce a pregnancy. I myself shared an April Fool’s prank last year which I’m sure a few of you fell for! Some of the biggest brands in health and fitness have also stepped it up this year with some fantastic April Fool’s jokes. Here are some of my favourites…
MyProtein’s Gym Dates
But this year they decided to tug at some heart strings with their new Gym Dates promotion, helping you to “Find Your Perfect Training Parner”.
Ashmei’s Darts Clothing Line
Luxury fitness clothing brand Ashmei revealed their new Darts range with this stunning black darts shirt design:
Marmite’s Latest Doughy Offering
Marmite announced “Doughmites”, doughnuts oozing with Marmite:
Though I wanna throw it out there that this idea could inspire a Pizza Express doughball/Marmite dunking frenzy… mmm.
Nakd’s Beans On Toast Bar
Nakd Wholefoods introduced their “Beans on Toast” flavour bar following extensive focus group sessions:
For Goodness Shakes’ ProteinAir
For Goodness Shakes revealed “PROTEINAIR” a canister and diffuser that deliver protein bound to oxygen as an inhalable gas… certainly gets into the bloodstream quickly!
Vivobarefoot showed designs for their latest “Vivo4Fingers” based on tight shoes causing the evolution of our feet to result in no pinky toe… eww!
Perhaps this one was also a little dig at Vibrams…?
Virgin Active’s Bum Clencher
Virgin Active announced “Smarty Pants”, a new design of underwear that counts butt clenches in an effort to help you achieve a “bum like Beckham”… the perfect bum selfie, or “belfie”, posterior.
Tribesports’ Muscle Legs
Tribesports shared their latest leggings which you can adjust to give you the perfect muscular legs…
oomf’s Bacon and Egg Porridge
And oomf Skinny Oats introduced their latest flavour instant porridge… bacon & egg. They’ve gone all Heston Blumenthal on us!
