EVENT: Fitness and Wellbeing at Bowhouse

Getting along to a brand new Fitness and Wellbeing event at Fife’s Bowhouse is a great way to start the New Year as you mean to go on

Taking place on Saturday, 19 January and bridging the gap between fitness and healthy eating, this is Bowhouse’s first Fitness and Wellbeing event.

Packed with activities and inspiration and more than 10 different classes to take part in, as well as healthy food demonstrations and a selection of healthy street food stalls, the event promises to be the ultimate start to 2019.

Based on Balcaskie Estate near St Monans, Bowhouse is Fife’s innovative makers hub, bringing people closer to a healthier understanding of the food they eat.

Alongside the food and drink producers based at Bowhouse is Fit to the Core, a fitness studio offering a range of classes with tailored training, nutritional coaching and more.

At the new Fitness and Wellbeing event, the Fit to the Core team will be running a taster of its regular programme, including spinning classes, Pilates and aerial Pilates, a fun take on the balance workout which suspends parts of your body from the ceiling in mounted hammocks in a fun mash-up of Pilates and aerial skills.

More down to earth but no less challenging, the line-up of other fitness activities includes CrossFit classes and demonstrations from Functional Fitness St Andrews, Boxercise, Metafit and Zumba.

And, if you’re feeling the chill this January, St Andrews Hot House Yoga’s classes might be the remedy. With a focus on breathing, each class is a total body workout, as well as a great way to reduce stress and improve sleep.

Hot House Yoga specialises in practising in the heat, which includes benefits such as detoxifying the body through sweating and allowing the muscles to stretch further.

Once you’ve got your breath back , you can enjoy a taste of some delicious and nutritious food. Healthy street food stalls include Milly’s Kitchen from Cupar, which will be serving a hearty menu of deli-style dishes. and Good Food Good Feelings with on-the-go vegan treats.

If you’re looking to boost your own healthy food repertoire, there will be a full programme of demonstrations from Scottish chefs and food and drink insiders. This will include a chance to learn how to make your own protein balls and find out more about healthy fat loss.
