OK, it’s time to move, sweat, get in shape and, most of all, have fun! Join us in Franklin Park at 13th Street between I and K streets for Workout Wednesdays, free outdoor exercise classes. The first workout will begin July 10, from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Come shake off workday stress and join our effort to enliven park space with dynamic programming. We’ve partnered with Crunch Fitness (555 12th Street), Freshii (1005 E Street) and City Sports (715 7th Street) to add to the merriment and promote a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. The Crunch Fitness team will teach a different exercise class each Wednesday through September 25. Freshii will provide complimentary fresh fruit and water, while City Sports will educate participants about athletic attire and equipment. The first 50 people joining us at the kickoff will receive a free T-shirt, a filtered water bottle and surprise goodies. Also, register on Facebook, to enter to win the weekly prize giveaway and follow us on Twitter @downtowndcbid and use the #workoutwednesdays hashtag.

Workout Wednesdays is part of the DowntownDC BID’s year-long 15th Anniversary celebration that began last November. To celebrate the organization’s founding and, more important, the evolution of Downtown DC from “dull, dirty and dangerous” to a remarkable urban experience, we have included events and cross marketing opportunities with Downtown stakeholders, cultural institutions, restaurants and hotels. We hope you turn out for this latest event and look forward to seeing you on July 10!
