Almost 6,000 enjoy the 2017 Fitness Festival

Fitness Festival 2017. Thousands of people gathered in Av. Maria Cristina to take part in the biggest fitness class in the world.

This year’s edition of the Fitness Festival took place on Sunday 24 September. The event, which was part of the La Mercè Festival, is one of the city’s most popular events. Nearly 6,000 people gathered in Av. Reina Maria Cristina to enjoy a public fitness class together with their friends, families and neighbours. Participants kept on the move in a class lasting an hour.

Over 40 fitness instructors from participating centres took charge of the choreography, at three different stages, in what was once again the biggest fitness class in the world!

As in last year’s edition, a number of Barcelona sports centres, gyms and clubs enrolled for the event and encouraged their members to join in.

A festival that is accessible for everyone

The Fitness Festival also aims to be an event that is open to citizens with disabilities. For this reason, the event was carefully organised to meet the needs and requests of people who use wheelchairs, facilitating access so they could take part in the action.
