Try Something New at a VIDA Health Fair
By: Elise Chretien
Next Wednesday, January 28th, all locations will be hosting a #VIDAHealthFair open to the public from 5-7 p.m. (check with each location for extended hours.) Attending a #VIDAHealthFair is a fantastic way to learn more about the programs we offer and the nutritional counseling available to members. If you’ve been wondering about a certain class, this is the time to meet the instructors and see what the class is like! Each location will be doing a variety of demos including TRX, Boxing, Express Boot Camp, Pilates, and ab circuits.
Our Registered Dietician Cat Taylor will be available at Verizon for health and nutrition related Q & A’s. If you want to make healthy changes to your diet or need help creating a meal plan that will supplement your workout, Cat can provide you with the necessary guidance to reach your goals. Complimentary fitness consultations and health screenings will be available, and you can get a free body fat analysis done at Verizon, U Street or Metropole to see where you stand on the fat percentage scale. Proper nutrition is key in reaching your fitness goals, so stop by and learn about opportunities you have to improve your diet!
Feeling competitive? See if you can out-burpee a trainer at City Vista! We’ll be hosting a ‘Beat The Trainer’ competition where members can challenge trainers on number of squats, push-ups, plank times, etc., done in a certain time frame. Now is your chance to get them back for all those reps they’ve forced upon you over the years! If you’re in the Renaissance area you can participate in a timed workout competition consisting of a set number of burpees, push-ups, sit-ups and squat jumps. The fastest male and female win a T-shirt!
Our preferred partners will be on site educating guests on the benefits of their products, and usually giving out free samples! Participating partners will vary at each location, but include Sweetgreen, Isagenix, Compass Coffee and more. There’s a good chance you’ll get hooked on your new favorite product or lunch spot here. Love biking to the gym? Hit up Metropole to win a free bike from Bike Rack. Want to try something new? We’ll be raffling off TRX & Pilates sessions at our Verizon location (& T-shirts, too!)
If you’ve been having aches and pains following workouts, visit our U Street or Yards location for chiropractic screenings from PalmerCare and Rose Physical Therapy. We will have specialists on site that can help identify any problem areas in your workout plan. Need a good stretch? Verizon will be demo-ing how to use foam rollers effectively to work out muscle tightness after a workout. And of course, Aura Spa massage therapists will be giving free chair massages if you’re feeling especially sore!
Guests are welcome at this event! If you know someone who may be interested in joining, the #VIDAHealthFair is the perfect opportunity for them to learn what it means to be a part of the VIDA Family. Plus, once they sign up you can enlist them as your workout buddy! Our membership consultants will be available at each location to sign up new members and ensure that you receive your referral bonus ($25 for the first guest, $50 for the second, $100 for every guest after that.)
We look forward to seeing everyone there!
