The 6 Workouts That Come With Your #Sweatworking Summit Ticket

We’ve been hard at work, finalizing the details of all of the ways you’ll sweat during the #Sweatworking Summit. We’re passionate about creating a schedule that brings you a variety of humans coming from a variety of business sizes from a variety of locations. 

You’ll see that we put those classes (which will take place on Zoom) at the beginning of the day – if it doesn’t work for your time zone, fear not. Everything will be shared after as an OnDemand workout on our YouTube channel.

Here are all of the workouts that your #Sweatworking Summit ticket gets you (along with the Summit Box AND nightly panels and workshops). 

Monday, February 15, 7 am CST

A talk by Rachel Krakauer and Gideon Akande followed by a Get Fit With Giddy workout that shows how fitness impacts your entire life. 

At aSweatLife, we love to step onto our soapbox to talk about how we look at your workout: as an opportunity to kickstart everything else in your life. We think that the work you put into breaking a sweat, pushing your muscles to failure, mastering that new yoga post – WHATEVER – allows you to show yourself that you can get through something challenging and come out on the other side. 

We created this hybrid experience with two experts to showcase that belief.


First, you’ll hear a talk by Rachel Krakauer, a clinical Psychology Doctoral student whose research covers the impacts of exercise on your mental health. She’ll share her research and how it’s shown her that moving your body can change your mind.

Then, global fitness leader Gideon Akande (who you’ve seen on screens of all sizes with brands like iFit and NordicTrack) will share a BIG idea – that all of the tenants of inclusion are right there in every single workout.

To close out the morning, Gideon will bring it all to life with a workout.

After a week of workouts, your body will need some down time. That’s why we’re pairing up Candis Oakley and the in-house myofascial release expert from OOFOS, Linda Jaros.

Kickboxing / HIIT workout with Tonal Coach Gabby Sansosti 

Our final workout of the week will feature trainers from one of our favorite FitTech innovations (and a feature from the 2020 Gift Guide) Tonal

Tonal is the world’s smartest home gym and the first truly personalized approach to strength training. By using a proprietary digital weight system instead of metal weights, Tonal can generate 200 pounds of resistance and replicate every machine in the weight room with a fraction of the equipment. Smarter than dumbbells and better than bodyweight, Tonal leverages A.I. to dynamically adjust the weights for each exercise in real-time for your most effective workout.

And Coach Gabby – who is based in L.A. – will make this fast-paced class fly. She transitioned to fitness after a successful career as a professional dancer and is certified in everything from barre to boxing. She says that Tonal High Intensity is “an upbeat, high energy class that is over before you know it!”
