Trend Report: Straight from Sundance

A highlight reel of the healthier moments from this year's festival in Park City, Utah.

In seven years attending the Sundance Film Festival, I’ve never once found a viable local fitness option. I’ve snuck into a depressing windowless gym with two machines in the parking garage of the Marriott to “steal” my exercise, and that didn’t feel entirely pure. Some of my lodging options sported equipment that was state of the art in the jazzercise era. That wasn’t quite right either. Because you can’t pack an Equinox in your luggage to Salt Lake, finding fitness at the fest in Park City has been tough.

And yet lurking amongst the hot chocolate, football watching parties, swag suites, cocktail chalets, and beer gardens, there are glimmers of the latest and greatest in health and wellness. Here are seven refreshing trends I spotted on the opening days of the festival this year.
