DISCOVER ARLINGTON FITNESS + WELLNESS FESTIVAL

SPRING 2018

Our second annual Discover Arlington Fitness + Wellness Festival took place just less than a month ago and we are still beaming with joy for how it all went! The weather was hot hot hot and we did our best to provide participants with cool beverages as they sweated it out!

 

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 and Washington, D.C.! It was hosted on May 12, 2018 at Gateway Park in Rosslyn.

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 Scorpio 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, SUNNIVA Super Coffee, KIND Snacks + Vitamin Water.

On the other side of the park, it was health and wellness galore!  Attendees got to indulge in healthy food + drink samples from honeygrow, Bai Beverages, Honeyflower Foods, Amazi, P.S. Snacks, Meal Dealers, and RICHbars.

 

This year we partnered with sweetgreen for our first ever VIP Experience! VIP Attendees were treated to a special swag bag that were more enhanced than the rest including treats from Gouter, Michele’s Granola, Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter, + more. In addition, each VIP attendee received a gift card from the Potomac River Running store, a sweetgreen salad, plus a sweetgreen branded yoga mat + a sweetgreen VIP Swag Bag.  

Besides the healthy food + drink, the wellness side offered a plethora of wellness treats.  VEToga + Mind Your Body Oasis offered several sessions of relaxing yoga on the grass to attendees who wished to jump in which made for the perfect rejuvenating afternoon. 305 Fitness offered fun dance workouts for attendees to jump into which were a HUGE hit along with Sarge Fitness hosting personal training sessions.

Arlington Pain & Rehab offered participants chiropractic treatments and Spring Studio + Massage Envy gave out refreshing massages after those tough workouts! Along with those rejuvenating services, we also offered essential oils with Casi Carey from doTerra along with healthy + organic skincare products from Beauty Counter + Rodan and Fields. Attendees were also able to shop plus sample health + wellness products from Complete Nutrition and Arlington Nutrition Corner.

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 20 of the 51 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 $250 Whole Foods Market Gift Card and $300 solidcore Gift Card!

A huge thank you to Whole Foods Market for donating waters at registration for all attendees at registration and the Rosslyn BID for providing tables, tents + volunteers! We couldn’t go on without thanking our incredible VIP Sponsor – sweetgreen for all your efforts! 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 from places like The Little Beet + South Block Co., a $15 sweetgreen credit, Aloha Bars, Go Macro Bars, and so much more! The Swag Bags were sponsored by lululemon in Clarendon and we are so grateful for their support! (See Swag Bag contents in the pictures above!)

 

Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers who without your help, this event would not have been possible! In addition, thank you to Elysées Eye Productions for the photography and Scorpio Entertainment for providing the beats!

 

Look out for the next Fitness + Wellness Festival in September 2019!
