KBC kicked off their 2019 WellFest Summer Tour by bringing Europe’s largest outdoor health & wellness festival to Salthill Park, Galway on Saturday, 8th June 2019.

The incredible lineup featured some of Ireland’s biggest names in health and fitness including bestselling cookery author, personal trainer and host of podcast BITE BACK, Roz Purcell; Ireland’s leading personal trainer, broadcaster, bestselling author and host of The Real Health podcast, Karl Henry; pharmacist and integrated wellness and nutritional coach Miriam Hussey; Tom Dalton founder of TD Fitness; Milena Jaksic Byrne founder of Platinum Pilates; The Coaching Circle; mobility expert Brian O’Loughlin of Movement 101 and yoga and meditation instructor Lee Tracey.
Highlights from the day included a wellness panel discussion with Roz Purcell, Karl Henry, and Miriam Hussey, Pilates with one of Ireland’s leading teachers Milena Jaksic Byrne, bodyweight HIIT with Tom Dalton and a slow yoga flow and meditation with Lee Tracey to wind everybody down after a busy day.
The next stop on KBC’s WellFest Summer Tour 2019 is Cork, where on July 6th many of the same leading presenters as well as Olympian, world champion, bestselling author and coach on Ireland’s Fittest Family Derval O’Rourke will entertain, educate and inspire at the Cork Show Grounds from 10am-3.30pm.
