Who says Sunday needs to be a rest day? There was no sleeping in and no missing a workout for attendees to PUMP YOUR RIDE last Sunday, February 24 at the Fort Lauderdale W Hotel. The terrace was packed with participants ready to get a good sweat on at the event collaboration with PumpFit Club and Ride Element.
The sunny weather matched the positive energy of guests, and both Fort Lauderdale-based studios made the most of the outdoor space with their workouts. The morning was divided into two hour-long sessions – one starting at 10 am and one beginning at 11 am.
Classes combined 30 minutes of spin, featuring Nikki Reifschneider and Jason Norton of Ride Element, and 30 minutes of group workout, with PumpFit Club’s Hannah Eden and Paulo Barreto. On the stationary bikes, riders were overlooking the ocean and enjoying a live playlist with DJ Express and when they switched, attendees did a tough circuit incorporating a mix of kettlebell moves and bodyweight exercises.
“It’s amazing what can be created when two like-minded fitness brands come together,” said Ana Garjardo, owner of Ride Element. “Together we created an amazing fitness experience that went beyond your average Sunday workout.”
After working out, guests enjoyed refreshing treats, including organic juice shots from Unleash Life, smoothie sips from Dr. Juice, and fresh bites from Farm to Form Meals. AWAY Spa was also on-site offering mini massages. Before leaving, all participants received goodie bags sponsored by Lululemon that included various freebies and local discounts.
Guests were invited to stay and play with an all-day pass to the WET Deck that was included with their ticket. Some participants also took advantage of the option to join the W for their monthly Retox Brunch following the workout.
“Thanks to the W Fort Lauderdale, we were able to provide a kick-ass workout with amazing views,” said Garjardo. “People were really taken aback by the turquoise water view as the backdrop to their workout and it brought a sense of gratitude and reminded us of how lucky we are to call this home.”
