What a wickedly warm and wildly wonderful WellFest weekend we all had! More than 11,000 people from the health and wellness community showed up to celebrate all that is WellFest and that elusive Irish sunshine made its presence known too!
This was our third year at WellFest and our third year as the official clothing partners for the festival. This was a realHoodies in the Wild experience and we loved playing a game of ‘Spot the Pink Fleck Hoodie’ from our G+C Clubhouse. We always get such a buzz seeing you rep our community with classic G+C gear plus lots of pieces from our new collection.
We had a new location this year plus a few new additions to our area. The Budda Bags were a huge hit for those of you who needed to catch your breath between classes, we had a lovely mix of sun and shade, there was a changing room (yay!), coffee (obvs) and we were introducing our first line of Outerwear!
We were delighted to see so many familiar, smiling faces coming to visit us at our G+C Clubhouse and returning with awesome stories of all the things they’ve done in their Gym+Coffee gear and with their Make Life Richer attitude. We met some great new people as well and we loved finding out what these new community members have been getting up to and what makes them tick!
Our first ever, real face-to-face connection with our community came way back in 2017, at our inaugural WellFest experience. It is an ongoing joy to see how our community has grown and flourished over the last few years and we feel like we’ve been growing right alongside you.

To be perfectly honest, the whole weekend is one big, beautiful highlight for us. We had three epic classes going on at The Clubhouse and our G+C beanies are well and truly off to Billy O’Regan, Nathalie Lennon and Elisa Looby who were out in the (mostly) blazing heat getting WellFest-ers to jump, stretch and sweat their way to wellness.
Coffee was also a highlight (as always) and it was brilliant to have the lads from TwoFifty Square coffee with us to make sure everyone was topped up with energy and ready to go! We were also really excited to be able to offer our latest Spring Summer line - OUTERWEAR! The jackets were flying off the racks all weekend and nothing makes us happier than to be seeing that kind of positive feedback in real time.
Every year, WellFest delivers an action-packed schedule in a dynamic environment to a crowd of committed doers. It’s one of the annual events we most look forward and we want to say a massive THANK YOU: to the AMAZING event organisers; to the INCREDIBLE instructors, presenters + vendors; to our TIRELESS G+C Crew; to 250 Square for the caffeine pick-me-ups; to Billy, Elisa and Nathalie for their high octane classes and most especially to you guys! Our radiant and raring-to-go Gym+Coffee community and all the folks who attended WellFest this year.
Thank you for popping in to see us at the G+C Clubhouse. Everyone turned up and turned out for the whole weekend and we are already planning all sorts of good things for next year’s event!
