What if your daily workout could do more than raise your heart rate and keep you healthy, but impact those in need, too? There’s not only strength in numbers (and in sweat) but your motivation to exercise has the power to inspire others and give back. That’s why we’re excited to announce that we’ve joined Class for a Cause’s National Fitness Day celebration.
“Until this year, there was no special day dedicated to celebrating the wellness and fitness industry, which has boomed in recent years. When I started charitable organization Class for a Cause earlier this year to promote ways to work out and do good at the same time, I was simply looking for a date to get everyone to class at the same time,” Kim Bielak, founder of Class For a Cause and National Fitness Day shared. “But when I discovered there was not yet a single day dedicated to fitness, I saw an opportunity – a need even – to create the first one to unite fitness studios across the country and celebrate all the benefits that fitness brings to our communities.”
Here’s what you need to know to get involved:
All day on Wednesday, May 10.
For 24 hours, fitness enthusiasts across the country will join together to celebrate strength and empowerment. Encourage your workout buddies, your best friends and your co-workers to book a class. ClassPass will be co-hosting an event with National Fitness Day at Refinery Rooftop, where the class will be free for all users. If you’re in NYC, sign up for the barre class here and the kickboxing class here.
Everywhere. ClassPass will be co-hosting one event in New York and you can find dedicated events in several other states on the Class for a Cause site. Wherever you are, rally your friends to work out and tag your photos with #NationalFitnessDay! Find participating classes and follow the celebration on the National Fitness Day site.
One of the best ways to celebrate National Fitness Day is to give back! You can dedicate your National Fitness Day workout to a cause by buying a Class for a Cause shirt that raises money for the non-profit, Girls On the Run. Learn more here.
