Six European Fitness Festivals To Escape To This Summer

We’ve all been there, the dreaded morning after a festival weekend. You open your eyes and realise that it's all finally caught up with you. The long days, the late nights, the uncomfortable sleeps in dodgy tents, the body punishment and general over-indulgence. 

If only you could have a fun-filled weekend of socializing without the physical and mental toll.

Well, thanks to the wellness revolution, you can.

Recently, we listed some of the biggest fitness festivals and wellness events coming up in Ireland this Summer. Now here's a look at some of the biggest fitness festivals around Europe. Below are six we are excited about:

1. Move Copenhagen: July 12th-15th, Copenhagen, Denmark

In Ireland, the movement based training regime adopted by Conor McGregor piqued people’s interest in the movement culture. In reality, the culture has been growing for years as people have gravitated towards more functional ways of training and keeping fit.

This Scandinavian event goes back to roots in a very fun atmosphere. Attendees can take part in flow classes, acroyoga, slacklining, parkour, calisthenics and so much more. The perfect event to release your inner child.

In three days your views on training could be changed for life.

2.  Lovefit Festival: July 20th-22nd, London, UK.

Lovefit festival really exemplifies balance.

Held at a lakeside forest in Kent, this event makes great use of its surroundings. There's a farm gym with old school workout stations, wild workout classes in the forest, stand up paddle-boarding in the lake and ‘wild runs’ through the wilderness.

By day you get to immerse yourself in fitness and outdoor adventure. By night, it’s back to a more traditional festival atmosphere with live music and after-parties. A unique festival with an incredible mix.

3. Flovibe Music & Wellness Festival: Aug 10th - 12th, Stansted Park, UK

Flovibe Music & Wellness Festival is billed as the place where retreat meets festival.

Flovibe has some incredible DJs and music from all genres. But, there is also yoga, pilates, mindfulness seminars and other classes. An enriching escape for music fans.   

4. Soul Circus, Yoga & Wellness at the Cotswolds, Aug 17th-19th UK   

In the tranquil setting of the Cotswolds countryside you will find Soul Circus. This yoga and wellness festival has everything from spa treatments and meditation to yoga raves. There's also exclusive performances from Cirque Du Soleil gymnasts. That's an attraction like no other.

This year the live music comes courtesy of ‘Fat Hat Collective’ and headliners ‘The Explicables’. There is a lot to be excited about at Soul Circus.

5. Wanderlust, 1 Day Fitness Festival, Sept 1st - Frankfurt, Germany

When you are naming the biggest wellness events in the world, Wanderlust would have to be in the mix. Wanderlust has been holding inspiring wellness events across the world for years. 

There are many events to choose from throughout Europe. However, we think that heading to beautiful Frankfurt adds to, what should be, an amazing occasion.

The one day event has a packed schedule which includes a 5k run, a group yoga session, guided meditation and more. All fitness enthusiasts should try and get to a Wanderlust event. If you manage to take in a European city break while you’re at it, even better.

6. Balance Festival, Fitness & Wellness Festival, Sep 7-9 2018 - Amsterdam, Netherlands 

Balance is another travelling health and wellness festival.

The festival was held in London in May and was a massive success. What better way to close out the Summer than a round two trip to Amsterdam. Balance is all about achieving a better self. The festival brings together world class fitness trainers, leading nutritionists, renowned yogis and top brands in the fitness industry. Another European wellness trip that we would love to add to our calendar.

If you are heading to a fitness festival over the Summer we'd love to hear. Comment down below what you've planned.
