Come one, come all — okay, that was a bit lame — but seriously, this is going to be loads of fun. For those of you familiar with the grueling Tabata workout, then 3 hours of it ought to sound like an intriguing challenge. For those of you who don’t know what it is? Come anyway (insert evil trainer laugh here). It’s for a good cause and your body will thank you later. Maybe a while later, but still.303 bw sweat woman

Bonus: I’ve gathered some pretty incredible door prizes for those in attendance.  Massages, personal training sessions, Pilates classes, a Go SPF Yourself t-shirt, and more. Don’t worry, you don’t have to participate in the workout to be eligible. Just show up and cheer everyone on. They’ll need the reinforcement, trust me.

I won’t get into my full-fledged diatribe against neglecting our largest organ (that would be our skin, folks). If you’d like to know more, I’ve done the research for you here.

Mark your calendars. You don’t want to miss this.
