A new national fitness lifestyle event FitLiving UK, the fitness show by the beach, will hit Bournemouth beach and Bournemouth International Centre this September. The inaugural fitness weekender on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September will showcase fitness at its absolute best, with over 50 classes to try, first class speakers and a fitness expo.

Whether you’re a hardcore crossfitter, a yogi or just looking to be a bit more active, there’s something for everyone including sunrise yoga, boxing, Les Mills classes such as body combat, body pump, body balance and GRIT, live Zumba, tough functional fitness, sunset pilates, SUP paddleboarding, beach runs, family fitness, mini football and gymnastics for children. In the fitness expo, visitors can get educated in the nutritional village, get the best apparel deals in the shopping village, discover the latest fitness tech, learn new recipes in the demo kitchen and speak to a wide variety of health and fitness professionals.

The beach on the west side of the pier will house FitLiving UK’s main stage with amazing fitness displays, a holistic & wellbeing tent offering free massages, a yoga tent and tough fitness directly on the beach, all while being served healthy street food. Inside Bournemouth International Centre, a speaker stage, family zone and blogger stage will allow visitors to meet their favourite fitness bloggers and hear from nutritional chefs, sporting celebrities and fitness professionals.

FitLiving UK has teamed up with BH Live to create a show that will be amazing for the south coast.

“We are thrilled to be part of FitLiving UK’s ambition to promote Bournemouth as a top wellness destination,” says Mike Lyons, BH Live’s Director of Sport and Leisure. “This unique event will shine the spotlight on the region’s outstanding and thriving health and wellbeing activities and facilities, promoting them to a UK-wide audience of beginners, families and pros. Looking forward to it”.

Local, regional and national health and fitness brands have also signed up for the event or have been invited to attend. With spaces filling up quickly, contact event@fitlivinguk.com if you would like to express interest in sponsorship or exhibiting.

Gemma Harris, Managing Director of Bournemouth-based agency Lineup Media & Events, who is running the event, said: “We wanted to create a show that would be completely interactive as well as demystifying the idea of a healthy lifestyle for people who might be scared to take the leap into fitness and nutrition. There was a gap in the market for this type of event, with Bournemouth flourishing in fitness right now, as reportedly one of the most active towns in the UK. Everyone seems genuinely excited about this one. See you by the beach on the 9th and 10th September!”.

Tickets are priced at £5.25 (expo entrance for the weekend) and £12.75 (both expo and classes for the whole weekend); available from bhlivetickets.co.uk.
