And just like that, Be Well Philly Boot Camp 2014 is officially behind us. On Saturday, over 600 women gathered for our fourth annual fitness and wellness fest at the Drexel Recreation Center. We packed that place out, y’all, with fitness classes, expert chats, cooking demos, and, of course, our buzzing Marketplace.

By the looks of all your Tweets, Facebook comments, and Instagram pictures, you all had as much fun as I did. It was so amazing to meet some of you, and to bring Philly’s top wellness experts together, in one place, for you to get to know them.

Below, check out a sampling of the Instagram photos and chatter from Be Well Philly Boot Camp 2014. If you have photos you haven’t uploaded yet, be sure to tag them #bewellbootcamp so we can see how you experienced this year’s event.

Til next year …

You probably think I’m a broken record at this point, but I just can’t help myself: Our now sold-out Be Well Philly Boot Camp just about here, and we’re all buzzing with excitement.

To give you a taste of what’s to come, I asked all the fitness instructors to send along a few of the songs they’ll be including in their class’s playlist. The result? One giant Be Well Philly Boot Camp playlist for the ages. I just love the diversity of the songs—yup, even the Eastern-influenced sitar songs from the Yoga Garden’s yoga class made the cut—and the happy energy they convey.

Get excited, ladies!

What to Expect at Be Well Philly Boot Camp: Red Hot Dance Fitness

I’ve been talking your ear off for weeks about Be Well Philly Boot Camp on June 7th, so by now I’m sure you’re aware that we’ve got a pretty killer lineup for this year’s fit fest, including free massages, indoor and outdoor fitness classes, rock climbing, empowering speakers, cooking demos … I could go on. Clearly.

But today, I want you to meet Christine Gallagher DeFilippis (She just got married—congrats, Christine!), who will be heading up the big dance-fitness class in the Subaru Outdoor Fitness Tent at 10 a.m. She’s bringing the high-energy moves from her born-in-Philly workout, Red Hot Dance Fitness, but she’s looking for some help picking the music. Check out her video below, then leave a comment below with a song you’d like to hear during her Be Well Philly Boot Camp workout. She’s even promised to give one lucky commenter a copy of the playlist to take home. Pretty sweet, right?

I vote for some Beyoncé. How about you?
