If you’ve been on the hunt for a workout experience that’s both fun and unique, then a fitness festival might be the perfect opportunity to shake things up!
Like a traditional music festival, you’ll often find big crowds and great entertainment at fitness festivals, except the focus of the event happens to be health instead of partying. Some fitness festivals only occur once a year in a certain location, while others have gained so much popularity that they tour to different cities around the globe. There are festivals for all fitness levels — even some that are kid-friendly — so don’t let the fact that you’re a beginner let you miss out on a great opportunity!
While there continue to be new fitness festivals added every year, here are a few that have recently seen a lot of success:
If you’re a yoga-lover, Wanderlust is the perfect festival for you! You can choose between single-day events or multi-day events at some of the most beautiful locations around the world, including Hawaii, California and New Zealand. Some of the top yoga instructors in the industry lead classes for all skill levels. Plus, there’s live music, guided meditation and guest speakers.
Telluride Weekend of Wellness
What better place to focus on your health than the peaceful mountains of Colorado? At the Telluride Weekend of Wellness, the number of guests is limited to help maintain a more intimate atmosphere and allow each person to receive one-on-one sessions. Activities range from motivational speeches and group fitness classes to hiking and paddle boarding. This fitness festival only happens a year!
Mountain Sports Festival
For those looking for an option that’s fun for the whole family, one option is the Mountain Sports Festival in Asheville, NC. Keep the little ones active with rock climbing, biking and even a family-friendly scavenger hunt. On top of that, there are numerous local food vendors and musical acts to add to the entertainment.
