#SweatworkingWeek

#SweatworkingWeek:


#SweatworkingWeek is like restaurant week for fitness and is our favorite week of the year.
The next #SweatworkingWeek will run from January 8-13, with a fitness festival closing it out this year. The fitness festival will take place at the venue Morgan’s on Fulton and will have two concurrently running fitness studios – more to come on that. 


The schedule this time around!


Every time we host #SweatworkingWeek we tweak, we learn and we grow. Some of our favorite events over 2017 have been the #SweatworkingCrawl events that pair up gyms in different neighborhoods across the city. We’re bringing that into the schedule in a few key ways like Monday’s combo class with The Barre Code and Hardpressed Conditioning and Title Boxing Club and Yoga Six’s collaboration on Tuesday.

Wherever possible the next #SweatworkingWeek schedule, we’re pairing concepts or hosting several classes in one space back-to-back so that we can accommodate more people throughout the week.
