This summer, we had a crazy idea. Take the thing that we loved so much - #Sweatworking - and make a week of it. After putting that into action and spending a week doing all the fitness, we saw that this was something that you could get behind.
From January 9-14, at the time of year when your New Year's resolutions could be pulling at your heart or hamstrings, we're doing it again. We're partnering with studios we consider to be some of the best in the city to offer a taste of their classes for just $15 a pop to incentivize you to get in the doors of your new favorite fitness studios. Think of this as your restaurant week for fitness.
January 13, we'll take on an hour of fitness that will be one you'll never forget - WERQ Dance Fitness with Haley, the founder of the dance fitness phenomenon.
6:00-7:00 am: we'll take on a WERQ class
7:00-7:30 am: we'll grab breakfast from Fit Foodie and coffee from High Brew!
Here's what you can expect:
WERQ is the wildly addictive cardio dance class based on the hottest pop and hip hop music. The workout is nonstop with repetitive athletic moves and fresh dance steps, so you get the best sweat. WERQ Instructors build a playlist based on trendsetting pop and hip hop music. Each week a couple new routines are introduced, so you get to WERQ the routines you know and challenge yourself with ones you’re learning
Music will be by DJ Sye Young of the DJ Firm and Haley will keep you moving.
