Thrive Fit Fest Saturday at FNB Field

Share Article

For many people, weekends are cheat days. You may not make it to the gym, you may abandon your typical salad for a cheeseburger and you may replace your lemon water with a beer or two. (Ok, well at least that’s how weekends usually look for me.)

However, this Saturday is Thrive Fit Fest, an all-day fitness festival showcasing today’s most popular workouts from the area’s biggest studios.

Thrive Fit Co., a group of health and wellness pros that offer frequent pop-up fitness classes throughout the greater Harrisburg area, is taking over FNB Stadium for this day-long event.

Four stages simultaneously will host a variety of “classes” including HIIT workouts, boxing, yoga, barre, POUND and Zumba, all to the soundtrack of a live DJ. It’s basically a mix-and-match gym pass, and like a beer or wine fest (or any type of fest), you can sample several different workouts throughout the day.

Here’s how I would tackle the day:

8-8:30 a.m. Beauty, Braids & Buzzes (By Joseph’s Vintage Barbershop & Salon), Stage 3
Get your hair out of the way and ready to work out!

9-9:30 a.m. OmniStrong (Led by April Tabor), Stage 1
Boot camp style workout of cardio intervals and strength training exercises.

11:15-11:45  Barre (Led by Marissa Signor, PureBarre Mechanicsburg), Stage 1
Ballet-based and inspired workout focused on toning and strength training. It’s super trendy and I’ve been dying to try it!

12:15-12:45 Kickboxing “Lights Out” (Led by Kelly Potteiger and Jenna Utsick Walsh, Central Penn Health), Stage 1
Kickboxing workout combining high-intensity cardio intervals and kickboxing moves.

1:30-2:30 (If you’re still alive) Warrior Workout and Stretching (Led by Inspired Physical Therapy and Thrive Fit Co.), Stage 4
Last session of the day to wrap up!

The festival also features stress management workshops, cooking demonstrations, health and wellness screenings and a “market” with more than 50 vendors. Plus, there will be super cool extras all day, including a braid bar and a #selfielove photo booth.

All fitness levels are welcome, as the workouts offer modified and advanced moves to accommodate everyone. This a great opportunity to amp up your favorite workout routine or find a new studio to visit.

Don’t forget your sneakers and a yoga mat! You’ll get a free swag bag full of fitness goodies with your ticket purchase, but bring an extra water bottle or cash to grab a snack at the market.
