Whoa! More than 70 people participated in the DowntownDC BID Workout Wednesdays drill in Franklin Park on Aug. 21. Talk about another tough class! Those bear crawls had folks in the Killer X Training session working it!

September schedule:

  • September 4 - Total Conditioning
  • September 11 - Chisel
  • September 18 - Yoga
  • September 25 Workout Wednesday Finale - All-Star Boot-Camp

All are welcome to join the BID and our partners--Freshii (1005 E Street), City Sports (715 7th Street) and Crunch Fitness (555 12th Street)--at the free, weekly sessions. Crunch teaches a different class each Wednesday. The meet ups take place from 5:30 p.m. to roughly 6:30 p.m. through Sept. 25, on 13th Street between I and K streets. The classes run up to 45 minutes.

There are freebies galore—from gift cards, coupons and water to T-shirts, water bottles and fruit.

Remember: A grand prize will be distributed at the last class on Sept. 25 and will include a one-year Crunch membership; tennis shoes and a $100 gift card from City Sports; an ipod, courtesy the BID; and a Freshii gift certificate. To quality for this prize, you must attend at least three Workout Wednesdays classes.

Also, follow us on Twitter @downtowndcbid to keep up with the latest information, including inclement weather plans. Use the #workoutwednesdays hashtag to participate in the conversation.

See you there!
