Fitbit, the wellness company that makes wearable devices that track your steps, is launching Fitbit Local, a series of free monthly workouts throughout the country. And they are launching here in Minneapolis on Saturday, October 1, at Target Field.
More than 4,000 participants have attended the launch events at other cities, and about 500 people of all fitness levels are expected to come out for the event at Target Field.
“There are so many fitness opportunities available in the Twin Cities, but some of them can be intimidating to people,” says JC. “Fitbit Local is about creating free, unique fitness experiences that give people the opportunity to connect with each other while trying something new.”
In fact, each month JC and Joy will bring a different workout opportunity to the masses absolutely free.
Both ambassadors have experience motivating others to workout, JC at Corepower Yoga and Solidcore, and Joy at Lifetime Fitness.
On October 1, the two will will lead an energizing, all-levels workout that combines a bodyweight bootcamp and yoga flow. Plus, they’ll have a live DJ to keep you pumped and lots of excitement afterwards.
Here is the breakdown of the morning:
9:00 am – 9:30 am Welcome & Settle In
9:30 am – 9:45 am Raffle & Meet your Ambassadors
9:45 am – 10:15 am Bootcamp with Joy Himley
10:15 am – 11:00 am Yoga Flow with JC Lippold
11:00 am – 11:30 am Refreshments, raffle and giveaways
Again, it’s free, although they do ask that you register by clicking here. And, the first 150 people to arrive will receive a free Fitbit yoga mat, so plan accordingly.
You can also follow them along on Instagram at @minnysteps and #fitbitlocal. And, be sure to mark your calendar for Friday, November 25 (the morning after Thanksgiving) for the November Fitbit Local event that will be happening at Lake Calhoun.
