Gearing up for Newport Beach Wellness Week: August 24-30, 2018
Newport Beach; a dreamlike destination that offers a taste of the perfect life for both visitors and residents (like us)!
One of the (many) things we love about Newport Beach is having a balanced lifestyle as a priority within the community. Locals are encouraged to pursue all that life has to offer – being active is part of our DNA! For the first time ever, our beloved Newport Beach will be hosting “Wellness Week” – a week dedicated to embracing the wholesome lifestyles that have been adopted by our sporty and health conscious community. The inaugural Wellness Week is set for August 24 – 30. As part of the premier for Wellness Week, Visit Newport Beach will be hosting a series of events – that we can’t wait to attend.
DAY 1 AUG 24 – Let’s Get Social
To kick off Wellness Week, a social media contest will go live on the first day of the week. Starting August 24, enter to win a one-night stay at The Resort at Pelican Hill (one of our FAVORITES!) by posting photos on social media from your personal experience at Wellness Week. The contest will run August 24 – 30, giving participants the whole week to post. The winner of the contest will be announced the last day on Visit Newport Beach social media channels. Let the games begin.
DAY 2 AUG 25 – Work It Out
Join us at Fashion Island for a complimentary workout event. It’s open to 100 guests, so RSVP now! Katie Dunlop of @lovesweatfitness (she’s the cutest, and SO inspiring!) will be leading the class to work your entire body and burn some serious calories to get you feeling strong and confident. The workout will be in the Bloomingdale’s courtyard on Saturday, August 25 from 8 – 10 am. You won’t want to miss it!
DAY 3 AUG 26 – Water Fun
On Sunday, from 8 – 10 a.m., meet celebrities and fitness influencers (us included!) at the Newport Dunes and participate in the inflatable water obstacle course competition. Included at the competition will be a healthy breakfast buffet and a Wellness Week giftbag. Tickets are $35 for an access to the water park and parking, the breakfast buffet, and a chance to meet the celebrity competitors. Such a killer deal, right? Purchase tickets here.
The celebrities appearances are as follows; Misty May-Treanor (three-time Olympic gold medalist), Teddi Mellencamp (The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills), Andre “Hitman” Huseman (BOXHAUS founder and head coach), Katie Dunlop (Love Sweat Fitness), Matt Bourne (Owner & master instructor at GritCycle), and of course, us (we’re pretty honored to be among such amazing company). If you don’t show up, we’re not friends. Kidding. Kind of.
After the event stay inspired and head to Newport Pier Farmer’s Market to gather fresh ingredients for a healthy dinner! You will need something hearty and healthy after all the fun you will have at the water park! Sunday’s from 9:00am to 1:00pm.
DAY 4 AUG 27 – TBD
(But you know it’ll be epic) As we wait for more details, we do know that the day will include a series of tours in the Civic Center Park Exhibition hosted by the Newport Beach Arts Foundation. The tour will take guests through the Sculpture Gardens for a relaxing and enlightening experience. The Sculpture Garden Tours will be on Saturday August 25 at 10 am for families, Monday August 27 at 9 am for retired or on vacation and Wednesday August 29 at 6 pm for the general public. If you wish to participate in a Sculpture Garden Tour, please call (949) 813 – 0377 to make reservations.
DAY 5 AUG 28 – Yoga in the Gardens
On August 28, join instructor Stacey Fetterman at Sherman Library & Gardens for a tranquil yoga class. This class is specifically curated for younger yogi’s as the class is a blend of mind and body practices to increase concentration, relaxation and calmness. We can already feel the zen.
DAY 6 AUG 29 – Farm to Table (Details – TBD)
The Farmer’s Market at Lido Marina Village is a fun and easy way to shop for local and seasonal produce, bread, cheeses, and much more. There isn’t a more picturesque location to shop, and why not grab a glass of champagne at zinqué when you’re done? ;)
DAY 7 AUG 30 – The Final Stretch at Lido Marina Village
The very last day of Wellness Week will be held at Lido Marina Village, Newport Beach’s newest shopping plaza on the harbor. Join Curl Fitness for an instructor-led yoga class located on the main deck. Waterfront yoga? We’re in! After yoga, various retailers will have pop-ups on the deck for guests to peruse and shop. And if you participated in the social media contest, make sure you stay for the winner to be announced!
Newport Beach is proud to host Wellness Week as health and fitness is a major priority in our beloved coastal community. We hope that Wellness Week is an opportunity for people to develop healthy and helpful habits. We believe that true happiness can be found in a balanced life. A healthy lifestyle is much more than eating clean and exercise. To achieve a well-balanced life, mindfulness and mental health should also be considered. Wellness Week urges residents and visitors in Newport Beach to live their life with gratitude and in peace with all that life has to offer. It’s easy to be thankful and live life to the fullest when you’re in the beautiful city of Newport Beach.
