A Knockout Good Time
Break down Dallas' first-ever fitness and fun fest by the numbers
The first-ever FAME Fest Dallas (it stands for "fitness + arts + music + experience") has come and gone, and everyone who laced up and jogged down to the Omni Dallas Hotel is probably still a little sore (in a good way).
The inaugural event was a weekend of healthy fun as participants got to try several different exercise styles and fitness classes, all while enjoying music, art, food, drinks, and pop-up stations.
What exactly went on? Here's a look back by the numbers:
80: spin bikes set up on Pegasus Lawn for Friday's classes. Also the number of participants who attended the mobility and boxing classes, tying them for number one.
17: classes held between Friday and Saturday.
7: sponsored studios, including Zyn22, Vital Fitness, Pound (the instructor and drummer were flown in to ensure an authentic experience), Class Studios, TruFusion, The Sports Pod, and Beyond Pilates.
7: music acts that entertained the crowd, including a DJ during spin class, the drummer during Pound, a trumpeter during boxing, and a violinist during yoga. DJ Therapy also played a set on Saturday night, sandwiched between concerts from Dannie & Kris and Larry gEE.
5: local artists that participated in live art and sketching, as well as sold artwork and networked throughout event.
5: unique culinary experiences from Patron Mixology, Cafe Herrera, Black Ship Little Katana, Coal Vines Pizza, and Biergarten.
3: lounges, including the Recovery Lounge with cryo therapy, facials, compression boots, and massages; the Refresh Lounge with Lululemon, Lunchbox Wax, the PeachieKeen braid bar, and facial glow glitter; and the Recharge Lounge with Smoothie King samples.
1: VIP patio serving Patron cocktails and fajitas.
1: FAME cocktail offered at Texas Spice, The Owners Box, and Pegasus Bar inside the Omni Dallas Hotel.
All told, the event was a roaring, heart-pumping success.
