Unless you live under a rock, you’re probably familiar with the concept of donation-based yoga in Austin. Donation-based fitness boot camps, however, are a relatively new idea.
Recently named the ‘Best Outdoor Workout’ and ‘Best Boot Camp’ of 2013 by Austin Fit Magazine, Stronghorn Fitness is on the forefront of this new movement with their increasingly popular ‘Saturday Sweat Sessions.’ The concept is pretty simple; just show up at the Austin High School track at 10am with a yoga mat (or thick towel) and some water. No prior signup is required.
The workouts change weekly, but here’s an idea of what the hour will look like:
- 10-15 minute dynamic warm-up (walking lunges, squats, jumping jacks)
- 18-20 minute circuit style workout and high intensity interval training
- 10-15 cool down with yoga, stretches and breathing
Last weekend, over 80 participants showed up for the first ‘Sweat Session’ of the year! Needless to say, this is a great way to help you achieve your fitness goals for 2014. And hey, maybe you’ll make some new friends in the process…
Follow Stronghorn Fitness on Facebook to stay in the loop.
Cost: Suggested donation of $10 but, “Everything is appreciated and nothing is expected.” According to Jess Martin (owner/trainer).
When: Tomorrow, January 11th at 10am (and every Saturday)
