Another day closer to summer, another fitness challenge to take on. Xtend Barre Brooklyn Heights wants to get you ready for the season with at least four classes per week between March 29th and April 18th, and they'll reward you for your hard work—everyone who completes the minimum amount of classes in the 21-day period will receive a pair of grippy socks and the option to purchase a one-month unlimited pass for $199, while the person who attends the most classes will receive three pairs of socks and that unlimited month pass for free. Sign up at the studio or via email by this Friday. [Xtend Barre]
