This Saturday, Uniiverse teamed up with some awesome Toronto fitness instructors from a variety of genres, and hosted a Free Fitness Frenzy in beautiful Trinity Bellwoods Park.
From 10am-12pm, the local instructors hosted a number of classes around the park at the same time, including Zumba, two styles of Yoga, Muscle Conditioning, and Caribbean Dance.
Everyone loved jumping around from class-to-class and experimenting with the various fitness styles. It was an amazing way to spend a sunny Saturday morning outdoors, meeting friendly new faces, and getting sweaty! Being fit has never been so fun. Who else was sore on Sunday?
Uniiverse aims to reconnect people in the real-world to share passions and discover new ones. At the Free Fitness Frenzy, we accomplished exactly that!
The turnout and feedback for this event was so amazing that we’ve decided to do it all over again! We’re excited to announce that the next Free Fitness Frenzy will take place on:
Saturday, September 22, 2012
Trinity Bellwoods Park
10 AM - 12 PM
Uniiverse aims to bring the best instructors in the city together and help people discover new ways to stay active. Toronto fitness instructors who are interested in participating in this event can contact: email@example.com.
A huge thank you to the instructors who taught at our first Fitness Frenzy:
