Ready to get
fit Fhit? Our next Racked Fit Club partner is The Fhitting Room, and we're headed to the fitness studio's Flatiron location at 31 West 19th Street this Saturday, February 20th at 2pm. (Update: Please note the change of address.)
Racked's Hottest Trainer alum Amanda Butler and Dennys Lozada are tag-teaming to lead us in their 50-minute Signature FHIX class, featuring high intensity training that utilizes equipment like kettlebells to torch calories. This class is suitable for all levels, including beginners, and you can get a taste of what moves to expect here.
The studio recommends arriving 10-15 minutes early so we can check in, set up, and start on time. Come dressed in comfortable workout gear (like leggings and a tank top) and sturdy sneakers, and bring along a water bottle to fill up — the studio is eco-conscious! Towels will be provided, and we'll have full access to the studio's amenities, including lockers with electronic keypads, showers, and vanity areas with blowdryers.
Want in on the action? We've got 22 spots to fill. Send an email here with the subject line "Racked Fit Club" and your name in the body of the email. 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 from their own address. The Fhitting Room requests that each participant create an account prior to Saturday to ensure a smooth check-in, so please head to the link above as soon as you're confirmed.
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. The wait list will close after it exceeds class capacity, and RSVPs made after that point will not be honored.
Update: This class and its wait list are now full. Thanks to everyone who signed up — see you Saturday!
