Newport Beach; a dreamlike destination that offers a taste of the perfect life for both visitors and residents (like us)!
One of the (many) things we love about Newport Beach is having a balanced lifestyle is a priority within the community. Locals are encouraged to pursue all that life has to offer - being active is part of our DNA! For the first time ever, our beloved Newport Beach will be hosting “Wellness Week” – a week dedicated to embracing the wholesome lifestyles that have been adopted by our sporty and health conscious community. Wellness Week is set for August 24 – 30. As part of the premier for Wellness Week, Visit Newport Beach will be hosting a series of kick off events - that we can't wait to attend!
DAY 1 AUG 24 - Let’s Get Social
To kick off Wellness Week, a social media contest will go live on the first day of the week. On August 24, you can enter to win a one-night stay at The Resort at Pelican Hill (our FAVORITE!!) by posting photos on social media from your personal experience at Wellness Week. The contest will run August 24 – 30, giving participants the whole week to post. The winner of the contest will be announced the last day on Visit Newport Beach social media channels. Let the games begin!
DAY 2 AUG 25 - Work It Out
Join us at Fashion Island for a complimentary workout event open to the first 100 guests! Katie Dunlop of @lovesweatfitness (she's the cutest, and SO inspiring!) will be leading a class to work your entire body and burn some serious calories to get you feeling strong and confident! The workout will be in the Bloomingdale’s courtyard on Saturday, August 25 from 8 – 10 am. You won't want to miss it!
DAY 3 AUG 26 - Water Fun
(Our favorite event!) On Sunday from 8 – 10 am meet celebrities and fitness influencers (us included!!) at the Newport Dunes Water Obstacle Competition. Included at the competition will be a healthy breakfast buffet and a Wellness Week giftbag. Tickets are $35 for an all-day water park pass and parking, the breakfast buffet and a chance to meet the celebrity competitors. Such a killer deal, right?

(But you know it'll be epic)
DAY 5 AUG 28 - Yoga in the Gardens
On August 28, join instructor Stacey Fetterman at Sherman Library; Gardens for a tranquil yoga class. This class is specifically curated for younger yogi’s as the class is a blend of mind and body practices to increase concentration, relaxation and calmness. We can already feel the zen.
DAY 6 AUG 29 - Farm to Table (Details - TBD)
The Farmer’s Market at Lido Marina Village is a fun and easy way to shop for local and seasonal produce, bread, cheeses and much more. There isn't a more picturesque location to shop, and why not grab a glass of champagne at Zinque when you're done? ;)
DAY 7 AUG 30 - Closing Night at Lido Marina Village
The very last day of Wellness Week will be held at Lido Marina Village, Newport Beach’s newest shopping plaza on the harbor. Join Curl Fitness for an instructor-led yoga class located on the main deck. Waterfront yoga? We're in!!
