We miss seeing racers’ sweaty faces so we’ve come up with a fun way to do that, while giving you a way to work on your fitness from home in May (since we have no races during the month). Join us for GO Home Workouts!
We’re hosting three online workouts, led by our friend Dana Katz of UltraU. You may recognize her from the Strength Training for Runners classes she leads at Evolution Healthcare & Fitness. You’ll sweat, laugh, get to see others’ smiling faces, and have a chance to earn prize packages from our sponsors.
These are, and aren’t, your typical strength training workouts. You’ll move your body; squatting, lunging, planking, jumping, working on strengthening your muscles, etc… but there are also fun little activities sprinkled throughout that earn you points. Each point is worth a ticket into the drawing for the prize package from our sponsors. The points are not based on how well you perform a strength activity, but instead are more light-hearted and fun and may or may not be related to Go Beyond Racing ‘things’.
There are three workouts, on Thursday evenings at 6:00 p.m., in May:
May 14th (FULL)
May 21st (FULL)
Cost: FREE! But you do need to sign up through our online shop. Registration closes two days before the workout, or until we reach capacity of 100 signups, whichever comes first.
Don’t worry if you don’t have a home gym or any fitness equipment. Everything you need is already in your house. You’ll receive an email with what you’ll need to have on hand (like a chair, towel, etc.) and instructions for logging in. And really don’t worry if you’ve never done an online workout or even if this will be your first strength-training activity. We’ll use Zoom, so you will be able to see the instructor as she leads everyone through each activity and you can decide whether or not you want people to see you. The only thing you have to worry about is that you will probably be sore the next day!
