It's not that we didn't appreciate them in sub-zero Minnesotan temperatures, but spring has sprung and it's time to say goodbye to those winter-warming lbs. To jumpstart the journey toward buns of steel, a couple dozen yelpers had the opportunity to workout at the first-ever Yelp Fit Club!
Tucked away above Hagen's, The Shed Fitness Studio hosted this exclusive event at their client-centered studio. The Shed offers a variety of fun, challenging classes, including spinning, strength, boot camp and yoga (with kettlebell soon to come).
Owners Katie and Spencer Lewin put together a complimentary program that allowed yelpers to try abbreviated versions of their cycling and group strength programs. And with sweat dripping from every pore, thank goodness vitaminwater zero was also on-site to keep everyone happily hydrated with their naturally sweetened, electrolyte-rich concoctions.
In her review of Fit Club, yelper Allison K remarked, "All of the instructors were fun, energetic, and kept us motivated through the whole class. And the music in our spinning class made it so much easier to keep going when we were pedaling to the beat. As Katie said, 'This isn't the YMCA. We don't censor our music.' Love it." Our strength instructor Kent—a contagious ball of energy himself—got everybody dancing in his class. In all her life, Erica C had "never seen so many people smile while working out!"
After class, not only did everyone walk away with an exclusive 50% off Yelp discount at The Shed through the month of April, but Megan W. also won a five-class package—clearly, she's gonna have rock hard abs in no time.
Thanks so much to The Shed, vitaminwater and the participating yelpers for kicking off the first installment of Yelp Fit Club!
I'll spare us all the photos (nobody needs to see that), but feel free to check out the other Yelp reviews from the event or write one if you were there. And if you have ideas or would like to organize the next Fit Club event, let's talk about it!
Sorely yours (in a good way),
