DISCOVER ARLINGTON FITNESS + WELLNESS

FESTIVAL FALL 2017

Did you have the chance to take part in the first EVER Discover Arlington Fitness + Wellness Fest!? We couldn’t be happier with the turnout and excitement around our first festival and are so thankful for everyone’s support!

 

For those of you who couldn’t join us, let’s give you a quick recap!

 

The Discover Arlington Fitness + Wellness Festival was an opportunity for attendees to experience first-hand some of the best fitness studios and wellness companies in Arlington, VA! It was held on September 16, 2017 at Gateway Park in Rosslyn. The goal was to show participants everything that Arlington has to offer in terms of fitness + wellness all in one place!  We had over 300 attendees register for this event, which exceeded our goal for our first festival! 

One half of Gateway Park consisted of 13 fitness studios showcasing a variety of mini-workouts. This allowed attendees to sample workouts while moving + dancing to the beats of Zandi Entertainment! The level of calories burned was off the charts!  When attendees weren't sweating it out, they had the chance to re-hydrate at the CORE hydration station.

On the other side of the park, it was health and wellness galore!  Attendees got to indulge in healthy food + drink samples from Rise Bakery, South Block Juice Co., Nosh Bar, Senzu Juicery, and Territory Foods.

Besides the healthy food + drink, the wellness side offered a plethora of wellness treats.  VEToga offered several sessions of relaxing yoga on the grass to attendees who wished to jump in which made for the perfect rejuvenating afternoon.  Saffron Dance offered fun dance workouts for attendees to jump into which were a HUGE hit along with solidcore hosting a plank challenge. The longest time was awarded a solidcore gift card and someone was actually able to hold it for more than 11 minutes (which is i-n-s-a-n-e).

Arlington Pain & Rehab offered participants chiropractic treatments and the Teal Center offered massages + acupuncture. Along with those rejuvenating services, we also offered essential oils workshop with Janette Coffee from doTerra along with Fit Facials from Mary Kay with Mari Cabrera! Attendees were also able to shop plus purchase fun workout apparel from Energie Goods and Zoomlaces!

To encourage participants to visit as many stations as possible, each attendee was given a passport card at the time of registration. Once an attendee visited at least 16 stations, they were able to enter their passport cards into a drawing to win a prize from our amazing prize sponsors listed below! We had roughly 30 prizes donated like the very popular $100 Whole Foods Gift Card!

A huge thank you to Whole Foods Market for donating bananas, granola bars, and waters for all attendees at registration and the Rosslyn BID for sponsoring and providing tables, tents + volunteers! Upon checking in, attendees were each given a Swag Bag full of goodies from our amazing Swag Bag Sponsors listed below. So not only did participants get to experience killer workouts and rejuvenating wellness services, they walked away with amazing swag bags stuffed with free classes, discounts, a $15 sweetgreen credit, and so much more! The Swag Bags were sponsored by lululemon in Clarendon and we are so grateful for their support!

Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers who without your help, this event would not have been possible! A huge thank you to Norfit Communications, who helped with the planning + marketing! In addition, thank you to Elysées Eye Productions for the incredible photos and Zandi Entertainment for providing the beats!

 

Finally, $1 of every ticket sold was donated to VEToga, a non-profit in Arlington that focuses on providing yoga, meditation, and healing arts to military, veterans, their families, and communities.  So we are proud to say roughly $300 was donated to this amazing cause!

 

Look out for the next Fitness + Wellness Festival in April 2018!
