WellFest and KBC Bank Ireland launch WellGood 2020
Roz Purcell, Kathryn Thomas and Philly McMahon are just an example of a host of contributors involved in a new health and wellbeing podcast and video series. WellGood is a ten-week programme of podcasts and video demos, focusing on nutrition, healthy recipes, wellbeing, fitness, yoga, Pilates and mindset. An initiative of WellFest and KBC Bank Ireland, the programme is offering free health and wellness tips in an effort to inspire people to start or continue their own wellbeing journeys.
Commenting at the launch of WellGood today, Aidan Power, Director of Marketing Communications and Corporate Affairs at KBC Bank Ireland: “We’re delighted to be launching our 2020 WellGood programme in partnership with WellFest. Our partnership with Wellfest and our sponsorship of the KBC Dublin Marathon are a key part of our Sustainability programme. We believe everyone should have access to top quality health and wellbeing advice, but we understand that busy schedules and budget constraints can often get in the way of prioritising our own wellbeing. WellGood is an opportunity for people to get quality advice and resources for free, from some of Ireland and the UK’s leading experts.
“This year, we’re excited to announce that we have expanded the WellGood programme to include a podcast series of interviews with health, wellbeing and fitness experts as well as guided video tutorials, all taking place over 10 weeks – meaning that people can fit the WellGood programme around their hectic schedules.”
Hosted by DJ Marty Guilfoyle, the weekly WellFest podcast in partnership with KBC will feature interviews with Roz Purcell, performance psychologist Gerry Hussy, Dublin GAA footballer Philly McMahon, Tally Rye, London-based personal trainer and author of ‘Train Happy’; elite marathon runner Stephen Scullion, and broadcaster and fitness entrepreneur Kathryn Thomas, amongst others.
Each week, guided training videos will be published, featuring Milena Jaksic, co-founder of Platinum Pilates, yoga instructor Lee Tracey, and personal trainer Steffan Fusco. Roz Purcell will also be delivering recipe videos.
Also commenting on the launch of WellGood was Katie Ryan, Co-Founder of WellFest, who said: “We’re delighted to launch the new and improved WellGood ahead of this year’s WellFest. We’re delighted to bring together some of Ireland and the UK’s leading health and wellbeing experts to share their knowledge and expertise. Whether you’re a fitness fanatic or are just starting out on your own wellness journey, the WellGood programme will have something for you.
“Fans of the WellGood programme will also be in for a treat at this year’s WellFest, where we’ll have a whole programme of talks, classes and discussions taking place in KBC Bank Ireland’s WellGood area at the festival.”
