A BBQ here, a terrace there. Summer is full of temptations. With the festival at number one. The festival season is in full swing and with the often unhealthy food trucks and beer culture, provides the necessary calories. Not to mention a multi-day festival like Pinkpop, Rock Werchter or Tomorrowland.
How do you stay in shape this summer? FlexMonkey went to investigate for you. As it turns out? There are already a lot of healthy alternatives on the market! The Flexmonkey girls Kim, Cai and Jessica visited the Healthy fest (Centerparcs de Eemhof) and report.
It starts with a warm sun and a nice lawn. There are several stages, a field with food trucks, clothing stands and dixies. On the eye a normal festival site where the party can erupt at any moment. But this party does not consist of performances by rock bands or well-known DJs, but performances by Dutch best trainers!
Breaking down with Train de Trainers, kickboxing with Vongelgym, playing outside with The Calesthenics project, getting inspiration from MichealPilarczyk.Gladiator workouts, soured arms with a Xcore workout, relax with Mindfulness, Meditation or Yoga, squat with Fajah Lourens (my killerbody motivation) and so on.
