Dallas is getting its first-ever experiential fitness festival. FAME Fest will bring together the hottest fitness trends, local artists, musicians and food to Omni Dallas Hotel on September 27 and 28.
The “fitness + arts + music + experience” festival comes from Fitness Ambassadors, a fitness-focused event marketing company, and will be co-hosted along with Omni Dallas. The weekend, which mainly consists of tons of classes, will see workouts on two stages — the Lawn Stage and the Street Stage.
The idea of the festival is to fuse art and music for the ultimate sensory fitness experience. Classes will include everything from yoga to Pilates, cycling and bootcamps. All will be set to music from DJs and local bands.
“Our goal is to create an experience that really brings the community together by spotlighting amazing studios, local businesses, artists, and more,” Fitness Ambassadors founder and CEO Mai Lyn Ngo says. “We are such a fit city with a really diverse fit culture and there are diehard fans that want this.
“Dallas is ready. They just don’t know it yet. We hope that FAME Fest will be the perfect balanced experience for attendees to break a sweat, experience the arts and music, and indulge in well-earned food and beverages.”
Friday night is a VIP night with three Pegasus Rides, which will be collaborations with Class Studios, VITAL Fitness and ZYN22. A live drummer will also be present for a couple of Poundfit sessions, which is that exercise you do with drum sticks.
On Saturday, the festival will really get going with classes from TruFusion, Beyond Studios and The Sports Pod. Vital Fitness will also be back with a boxing class, TruFusion will have Hip Hop Flow and a Silent Disco Tru Flow & Pilates class, and ZYN22 will host a HIIT workout.
Then to cool down at the end of the day, live music performances will be from 7 pm to 10 pm. Several recovery lounges will be open throughout the day as well, giving attendees a chance to recharge and relax.
A block party will also be going on all day and night at the Restaurants on Lamar, the strip of restaurants right next to the Omni. The participating restaurants include Biergarten, Bob’s Steak & Chop House, Coal Vines and Texas Spice. The block party will also feature health and wellness vendor booths and street art.
General admission to the block party is free, a Saturday ticket costs $55, and a VIP all access pass runs $125. Tickets are available online.
