Finding the motivation to get off the couch and get moving is only half the battle when it comes to fitness and working out. The other half is figuring out what to do and how to do it. Going for a run or hitting the gym isn’t for everyone, which is part of why boutique fitness is becoming so popular, especially in Colorado Springs. Yet with so many studios boasting unique and specialized workouts, it can be a challenge to figure out the class that’s right for you. At least it was before Colorado Springs Fitness Week.
Now in its third year, Colorado Springs Fitness Week showcases some of the premier fitness studios in the city. You can sample from 14 studios during the week-long fitness crawl July 9-15. The free punch card gives you the opportunity to take classes for just $5 at participating fitness studios and enjoy discounts at participating community business partners. And new this year is a closing Fitness Festival in Acacia Park.
“There is a fitness experience for everyone, it’s just about finding your home studio and a workout you love,” says Griffin Hill, owner of Pure Barre Colorado Springs and founder of Colorado Springs Fitness Week.
Participating studios offer a range of classes, from low impact workouts like pilates, barre and yoga, to high intensity classes like spin, CrossFit and cross-training. An important thing to remember is that each studio has different etiquette, rules and types of classes, so it’s worth doing your online research or calling prior so you can plan to take classes that you’ll enjoy.
Here’s How Fitness Week Works
• Pick up a punch card at Lululemon Athletica or any participating studio beginning July 3.
• From there, take a look at the studios and class times and plan which classes you want to take. Since there are more studios participating than there are days in the week, it’s important to check out which classes you want to try the most so you’re able to fit them in!
• Attend the July 8 Launch Party to meet some of the studio owners and community partners.
• Beginning July 9, workout at the studios for just $5. Talk to the instructors and owners, and figure out which community, or communities, are right for you.
• Celebrate the close of the exercised-filled week by attending the Fitness Festival at Acacia Park. There will be free fitness classes, vendors and food trucks.
