Manatee FITFest will be held on March 5th, 2022 at the NEST at Robinson Preserve in Bradenton, FL. The inaugural event is an outdoor showcase of local businesses and provides an introduction to the area’s popular fitness and healthy lifestyle opportunities. This day is all about community: bringing together a bootcamp by Anna Neal of Livefit Training, a 5K run/walk presented by Run With Purpose Nutrition, a yoga experience with Phil of American Yogi and a guided meditation by Ria Ray. Following the mainstage events, you can choose your own adventure by partaking in other scheduled workshops/specialty classes like HIIT, acro yoga, paddleboard and more! From Mr. Bongos DJing on the main stage to lawn activities, grabbing a healthy lunch or shopping local vendors in the marketplace, there’s plenty to do when you’re not on your mat. All activity levels are welcome to this day of fitness, music and food!

Event entry and all classes are free.
