Sneaking in your workouts is more important than ever now that we're in the midst of the indulgence-filled holiday season, so that's why we're teaming up with Athleta for a free workout at its brand new fitness studio underneath its Flatiron store! Join us on Tuesday, December 15th (that's tomorrow!) at 7pm in the basement of 126 Fifth Avenue for HIIT IT! by Daphnie Yang, where we'll be getting our hearts pumping with bursts of all-out effort to burn up to 800 calories in 60 minutes.
Students should arrive 15 minutes early for check-in and set-up — just walk through the store to find the staircase down to the lower level in the back — dressed in comfortable workout gear and sneakers (or you can change there). Bring along a water bottle and a lock to store your stuff in the studio's lockers; they'll provide hand towels to mop off your sweat.
Want in on the action? We've got 23 spots to fill.
Send an email here with the subject line "Racked Fit Club" and your name in the body of the email. [Update: The class is now full — thanks to everyone who signed up!] We're accepting participants on a first-come, first-serve basis — and sorry, we can't accept reservations for friends; each person who wants to attend must send a separate email. Anyone who sends an email after the class is filled will be put on the wait list, and we'll notify you if space frees up.
