On Saturday, August 21st, 2021, community members gathered at Mission Beach, in San Diego, California to take part in the Summer of Sweat Beach Workout by UpGo and FIT Athletic
On one of the best beaches in southern California, nearly 100 participants were led by two-time Olympian Devon Allen and elite FIT Athletic Trainers through two, hour long HIIT workout classes. As co-founder, Devon Allen was also there with his UpGo team who helped plan and execute the event – as well as multiple local companies who helped sponsor the event, such as Prepeaze Meal Prep and Dropkick Coffee.
With a focus on community and having fun, UpGo and the FIT Trainers devised a six station, HIIT circuit workout, and a classic playlist of all the early 2000’s throwback hits for the participants to jam out to while they pushed each other through the workout. The participants were broken up into six groups, one for each station, and rotated through all the stations four times, crushing one minute of constant movement at each station!
It was a day of perfect So-Cal weather! It was a high of 78°F, a little overcast with the sun peeking through the clouds at times, and that constant, gentle ocean breeze to cool you off. There even was an appearance of a pack of dolphins who swam up to the shore to see what was going on!
During the workout, the FIT trainers worked together to keep participants engaged, empowered, and safe with modifications, while UpGo staff made sure everyone was having fun, staying hydrated and enjoying themselves.
Aside from the physical benefits, the workout also provided an opportunity to make new friends and connections in the San Diego community. The crowd was a mix of FIT members and non-members ranging from the ages of 18 to 72! Proving that you are never too old or too young to improve your fitness and engage with the community.
After the workout the participants walked over to FIT Athletic Mission Beach’s rooftop to socialize and enjoy some treats from Prepeaze Meal Prep and Dropkick Coffee. Overall, the UpGo team and FIT Athletic Mission Beach staff provided a great, accessible, and challenging workout for participants of all fitness levels and created an environment of community and support.
All participants received a swag bag with and UpGo x FIT workout towel and t-shirt, coupons to local businesses, a free 5-day FIT Athletic pass, and some UpGo gummy samples and stickers! To cap off the event UpGo held a giveaway where one lucky participant won an UpGo gym bag, UpGo hat, UpGo Essentials Bundle, a 3 free month membership to FIT Athletic Mission Beach, a BlushTan Care package, and one free month of meals from Prepeaze Meal Prep!
