Winter Fun & Activities

Starting The New Year with New Activities

It might not come as much of a surprise, but studies have shown that the most common New Year’s Resolutions are losing weight and exercising more. These studies have also shown that enjoyment is a key factor in achieving any fitness goal and creating a happier and healthier you. Our clubhouses from Chicago to Vancouver took the time to incorporate new activities into their January calendars so members could start off their 2019 happier and healthier. Here’s a roundup of some of the new activities our club members enjoyed:

Burning Calories and Having Fun

On January 15th, Chicago kicked it into high-gear at a CycleBar class in Kildeer, Illinois. Members cycled their way through a class fueled by an enthusiastic instructor, fun club-like lighting, and energetic music. They were definitely feeling the burn once the class was done, but nothing brings friends closer together than a great workout! Chicago wasn’t alone when it came to featuring high-intensity workouts in January. Our Seattle club had an empowering and fat-blasting afternoon on January 20th at JabX Kickboxing and Fitness. They kicked and jabbed their way through more than 800 calories per member in the workout!

Cold Weather Activities

Three of our clubs embraced the cold weather to help burn away the extra slices of pie eaten this holiday season. Our Vancouver club swept calories away at the Royal City Curling Club in New Westminster on January 13th and enjoyed the benefits of the quirky game of curling. Minneapolis members frolicked through the snow on January 19th as they snowshoed along two miles of trails in Pine City, Minnesota. Members got to learn about winter travel during the fur trade and got to participate in additional activities like throwing a curling stone and playing a round of Ojibwe snow snake. The Denver club enjoyed a winter-inspired activity the same day when they went ice skating at Evergreen Lake!

Dallas gave football a wintery twist during their Flag Freezeball game on January 12th. During their pick up game of flag football, members forgot their winter blues and had a great time! Also embracing another classic activity, Houston gave Throwback Thursday a whole new meaning while roller skating. Houston members managed to get a leg workout in at the Adults Only night, January 17th, at the Dairy Ashford Roller Rink. Reliving roller rink memories with new friends was just a bonus!

Outdoor Adventures

Archery Tag was Phoenix’s activity of choice. They combined a game of tag with the combative skills used in other fun activities like paintball and dodgeball. Add the timeless activity of archery into the mix and this event made January 19th a unique, fun, and unforgettable day for Phoenix members. Speaking of paintball, Santa Clara had a great time enjoying this adrenaline-filled classic on January 12th. This was a great and colorful way to run around with fellow E&A members. Their friends just down the road at the San Francisco club spent January 13th participating in a Scavenger Hunt throughout the boats found at the Sausalito Wooden Boat Tour. This low-impact activity managed to incorporate a leisurely walk into a fun afternoon with friends.

No matter what city you’re in, Events and Adventures will be sure to help you live a happier and healthier 2019 while you make new friends and stronger connections. With over 30 scheduled events every month you can experience so many new activities and exciting things. After all, it’s our mission to help you live a life you love.

Events & Adventures Minneapolis Can Make Your Next Hump Day Worthwhile

One thing Events & Adventures members love to do is get out and be active.  So if you’ve been thinking about getting more active—NOW is the time to take action and uncover the best version of you by joining Events & Adventures.

Events & Adventures teamed up with Sweat with Jess for an amazing hump day boot camp!  What better way to celebrate hump day than to sweat together and have a drink afterwards?  Fourteen brave Events & Adventures club members showed up for the boot camp session and we were all excited to get out there and get our summer bodies off to a great start!

We asked Jess why she was so passionate about helping her clients and this is what she had to say:

“Why do I do what I do? Because I love helping people see what they are capable of. I LOVE pushing people to their maximum. I love providing a great workout to help my clients achieve success and a sense of pride!”

Jess’s help alongside the great atmosphere created by our club members turned what might usually be an exhausting hump day into a chance to meet new people and better our lifestyles.

Our hump day boot camp consisted of box jumps, plank salutes, wall balls, sit-ups, overhead rev lunges, burpees and goblet squats! It was no easy task, but when you have a trainer as spunky as Jess and company as great as our members it makes the time fly and burn worth it! The great thing about working with Sweat with Jess is that she adapted the workout for all skill and ability levels. So whether they were an avid gym goer or this was their first time at a boot camp class, everyone was able to succeed!  Afterwards, once everyone was drained so we headed next door to one of our favorite breweries, Urban Growler for a drink and a mouthwatering burger!
