What is a sweat crawl, you ask?
You might be envisioning a bar crawl on a particularly hot day in the DMV, but it’s actually just the opposite. No stopping by local watering holes for the night. Instead, participants go to several locations for a variety of fitness classes, which range in genre and athleticism.
If you’re interested in getting up and moving, swap your pint glass for a bottle of water and check out these two sweat crawls coming to Arlington.
Sweat Crawl for a Cause
Saturday, Aug. 10, 1-4 p.m.
Three local fitness studios in Arlington are ready to sweat. Participants will begin with a class at Next Phase, completing a strength training routine, followed by a class at LavaBarre and finishing with a cycling class at Good Sweat Studio. Bonus: ticket proceeds are donated to Operation Paws for Homes, and if you make it through this summer sweat crawl, you get to pet (or fall in love with) some of the organization’s adoptable dogs. // Next Phase Arlington: 2009 14th St., Arlington; $30
Free Summer Fitness Crawl
Saturday, Aug. 17, 1-3 p.m.
There are dozens of ways to get up and moving in Arlington, but try your hand at three different Arlington fitness studios and you might just find your new favorite workout. Participants will start by being divided into groups and trying 30-minute classes at the following: Orangetheory Fitness (high-intensity interval training), Pure Barre (total-body, low-impact workout that implements dance and strengthening techniques) and CorePower Yoga (a combination of power yoga and flow yoga). // Epic Smokehouse (Meeting location): 1330 S. Fern St., Arlington; free
