8 ways to celebrate a healthy life with Freshfest  in West Palm


Fresh Festival 2018 couldn’t come at a better time! We’re past holiday binge-eating, and hopefully have started consuming cleaner food and taking care of our bodies. If not, then this event will be your motivation. It’s time to get our minds and bodies ready for the summer.

The 5th Annual Freshfest is happening on Saturday, February 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in downtown West Palm Beach. You can expect a ton of physical activities, athletes, your average Joes and Janes, food and more.

But first, let’s get some things cleared-up:

  1. FreshFest is FREE to attend, but not all classes are free.
  2. You have to purchase tickets online for each class you want to attend, or...
  3. You can buy an “Ultimate Class Pass” ticket, which gives you access to everything. 

Now, here are 8 ways Freshfest celebrates a healthy life:

1. Unbeatable all-access ticket

The festival is free to attend, but all classes have a price if you want to participate in them. There’s a great deal: a $15 all-access ticket that can be purchased online or on the day of the event. This is definitely your best deal as it will give you a chance to explore fitness options without committing. Curious about yoga, cross fit or bootcamp? Sign up for a class to see if it’s the right fit.


2. Fitness Classes

A post shared by Freshfest (@freshfest_) on

There are more than 25 different physical activities starting at 7:30 a.m.. To name more than a few, you’ve got

  • Sunrise Flow Meditation on the water
  • Yoga
  • Cycling
  • Kangoo
  • Row fitness
  • Boxing

You name it, they have it. And you don’t have to be a pro to join anything. It’s all about you and your health. The hope, of course, is for you find a fitness class that you love and want to commit to for the “new year, new you.” See schedule here.


3. “Cheat Day” food options

Every year, Freshfest gives us plenty of healthy food options. But this year, they’ve also added “cheat day” food trucks. Because what if Saturdays happen to be your break-the-diet day? Come on, live a little. 

FreshFest hasn’t announed who the food vendors are, but we’re hoping it’s some of these popular food trucks of Palm Beach County.


4. On-Water exercises

New this year is “Freshfest Flow” featuring standup paddleboard meditation and yoga. You can bring your own board or reserve one with Freshfest, but you must book your reservation online.

*Important message from Freshfest: All paddleboard class participants check in 10 minutes prior to the class start time at the paddle flow tent located on Flager.

5. Health and fitness-conscious vendors

Besides food, expect a wide list of vendors displaying and selling their best products a la green market. Expect to see businesses like True Vine Chiropractic and Total Movements offering fitness programs as well as food vendors like Zico Coconut Water and Guac & Go, plus fashion items from  MANTA swim and Charming Designs. 


6. Healthy food Market

A festival isn’t a festival without food. Even healthy festivals like Freshfest must be loaded with a lot of options, and they are. You can find guacamole, acai bowls, smoothies, juices and other healthy options to feed your athletic belly. Expect vendors such as Chunkie Dunkies, Meraki Juice Kitchen and PAC pastries. 


7. Kid-friendly event

Don’t worry about buying tickets for your kids 12 and under. There are two kid classes for them and they’re free. Choose between Kid’s Yoga with Saleema Taylor or Kid’s Bootcamp with Title Boxing Club. 


8. Live Music
