On October 13, New York's gyms and fitness studios are coming together for the first-ever Sweaty Saturday, a day dedicated to physical health around the city. The group includes over 26 different organizations including Flywheel, Barry's Bootcamp, SoulCycle, Pure Yoga, SLT, and Tracy Anderson, all of which will be offering special perks. Expect everything from new classes to in-house DJs to celebrity appearances, plus the chance to see some of these guys in action.
The event's goal is to raise money for HealthCorps, a non-profit that helps fight childhood obesity with in-school programs. It's a lot like Fashion's Night Out, except that at the end, you're exhausted and dripping with sweat. So basically it's like Fashion's Night Out in Soho.
