euphoria is all about indulgence, but in reality, balance is everything. Guests of euphoria Power Picnic will enjoy a little of both, with healthy eats and a workout to balance out the amazing bites throughout the weekend.
The event will be held at the lawn at Hampton Station, with a 50-minute workout led by Burn Boot Camp Greenville and a picnic brunch afterward courtesy of Farm Fresh Fast, with help from White Duck Taco Shop and Due South Coffee.
Power Picnic is hosted by euphoria and presented by The Ness Fest, Greenville’s first health and lifestyle festival, to be held Oct. 20-21. The Ness Fest will focus on four pillars: wellness, wholeness, goodness, and fitness.
“At the Power Picnic, euphoria attendees will get to experience a little tease of each of these very things,” The Ness Fest event director Allie Maietta says. “Our ultimate goal is to grow a community of like-minded individuals who are ready to join us on a journey of self-betterment — and we hope to bring together some people at the Power Picnic who want to come along for the ride.”
The event is not just for those who are already active, but also for those who are trying to make wellness a greater part of their lives. euphoria is meant for trying new things, and Power Picnic is no different.
The workout will focus on high-intensity interval training and feature a warmup and a “finisher,” a term coined by Burn Boot Camp for an all-out effort to end the session, says Sara Tompkins, co-owner of Burn Boot Camp Greenville.
Healthy bites and drinks will be provided for some relaxation on the lawn after the workout so that attendees can head to their next euphoria events guilt-free.
“Life is all about balance,” Maietta says. “We are not here to preach to people that they have to eat perfectly all of the time, work out at 5 a.m. every day, and not enjoy themselves at events or parties. We want to help people make realistic changes and find how they can integrate healthier habits into their daily life. Go ahead and try a new dish at Euphoria, enjoy that cocktail, and then find the time to join us at the Power Picnic to work up a sweat before you continue on with the party!”
