Getting sweaty at #CTFSweatworking


Sweatworking makes everyone at a little giddy in a lot of ways. Not only do we get to take you inside the gyms we love for a workout, we get to meet some of you in real life for the first time. We know that busy people need ways to connect and to stay fit and we want sweatworking to be just that for you – a chance to try something new and connect with some new people in the process.

We worked with CrossTown Fitness to throw a sweatworking event that made everyone work hard for their networking. The event sold out so quickly and we didn’t want anyone to miss out on the action. #CTFSweatworking: an event so nice, we did it twice.

We wanted the first and the second night of #CTFSweatworking to be equally challenging, so the trainers dished out similar workouts for both events. On the first night Betina was at the helm, putting the class through CTF’s circuit training workout.


On day two, Kailee put the group through a similar challenge.


CrossTown Fitness is known for its high intensity workouts, and this was no exception. Betina and Kailee pulled out all the stops to keep the group sweating and make sure they remembered the workout.

We combined some body weight resistance with weighted movements for an incredible sweat-fest. As soon as everyone knew what was coming at them, we got to work.

A trainer needs to have a little bit of fun while everyone around her is sweating.


When the work came to a close, there was a fairly universal response.


Betina’s group wanted to show off their favorite weights post-workout.

Kailee’s group managed to sneak in some men. Hi, Fiance!


We’re firm believers that those who work out together have a tighter bond, but a picture is worth 1,000 words.

We rewarded the hard work with a mini spa at #CTFSweatworking. nutrilux sponsored polish changes and gave one lucky winner at each event a month’s supply of Drive bursting vitamins.

Factor 75 supplied post-workout snacks and RawNature5 shared raw juices and raw protein. Full disclosure: we were completely tempted to fix the drawing to take home the Grand Prize ourselves. A Beauty Bash from Benefit valued at over $500!
