Community Workout Series Returns For 2018

Monday, May 7, 2018

Chattanooga’s free community workout series returns on Thursday, May 10. City Sweat, organized by River City Company in partnership with lululemon athletica, challenges people of all fitness levels in a variety of workout platforms the second Thursday of each month May through October at 6 p.m.

Normally held in Miller Plaza, 850 Market St., May’s kick off City Sweat will be held in the Tennessee Aquarium Plaza, 1 Broad St., and led by lululemon ambassador and local fitness and running guru Dreama Campbell. An all-levels endurance and run based workout, Dreama will lead participants through a variety of exercises to get the heart pumping and to add to a fitness routine, runner or not. 

“You can experience a city in many ways, but using a city as the setting of your exercise routine can provide an entirely new appreciation for a place like Downtown Chattanooga,” said Amy Donahue, director of Marketing and Communication at River City Company. “From elite athletes to the average Joe, City Sweat is your way to get out of the gym, connect with others and try new workout routines from highly skilled instructors.”  

Since 2016, City Sweat has provided 12 complimentary classes to over 1,000 participants centered on fitness experiences like yoga, biking, running, boot camp, diversified fitness and personal training. Each session will be led by lululemon ambassadors who are community teachers leading through cultivation of their own lives and wellness. 

City Sweat sessions in 2018 will be held on May 10 in the Tennessee Aquarium Plaza and the remaining classes will be held in Miller Plaza on June 14, July 12, Aug. 9, Sept. 13 and Oct. 11. All sessions will begin at 6 p.m.
