There are few factors more motivating to get you to a workout than knowing that someone is counting on you to show up. Sweating it out with a friend, whether you're working toward the same goal or competing to best each other, has been proven to provide a more effective burn than if you go it alone.
And at Swerve Fitness, New York City's only team cycling studio, you can have it either way. With every class divided into three teams—bathing bikes in red, blue, or green lights to distinguish them—you and your best friend in fitness can grab neighboring bikes to lead one team to victory, or head to opposite sides of the bass-heavy basement studio to duke it out on the leaderboard. Whichever way you choose, it's always a win for maintaining an active lifestyle.
That's why we've teamed up with Swerve Fitness to offer this huge, huge giveaway: Two prize packages of a whole year's worth of unlimited classes for the winner and a friend of his or her choosing.
All you have to do is head here and give your name and email address, and you're entered to win.
The two winners will be contacted by Swerve Fitness after the contest entry period ends on Friday, which means you've got the rest of the work week to think about who you'll share your workouts with for the rest of 2015 (and a little bit beyond). See contest details below.
Update: We've got our winners—thanks to everyone who entered!
