In May, UPMC Health Plan hosted the This Is What Spirit Looks Like social media challenge during the UPMC Health Plan Pittsburgh Half Marathon. And like last year, the winning neighborhood stood to win a workout and a free event. Well, the tallies are in and South Side cheered the loudest and tweeted their thumbs off. So, the workout + party is on!
We’ve been talking to all of our Fitt friends and, together with UPMC Health Plan, we’re pumped to invite you to the South Side Sweat Sesh at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex – Indoor Training Center in the South Side on July 22.
Leave it all on the field
Get ready to hit the Steelers practice turf and get your adrenaline pumping, with Jordan Rose leading your workout. You may know Jordan as the mastermind behind Lawrenceville’s Elevate. Or maybe you recognize him as the high-energy instructor from a Steel Revolution cycling class.
But on July 22 at 10am, you’ll get to know him for his high-intensity workouts away from the VersaClimber or stationary bike. Jordan’s bringing his good friend No Sleep to DJ the full-body workout. That means you’ll get your cardio with Cardi and squat, lunge, or punch with Drake, G-Eazy, or Ariana Grande.
No equipment is needed for this all-levels training, however bringing your phone to snap pictures, toting a water bottle to hydrate, and working up an appetite for the post-sweat celebration is highly encouraged.
South Side Celebration
Since you’ll be at cool spot where the Steelers sweat, you’re going to want to stick around and snag a few pictures. The music will still be bumping while you stretch, socialize, and recover.
There’ll be healthy bites from East Liberty’s honeygrow (their signature Make It Grain and Summer Highland salads) while Pittsburgh juice favorite Salúd will have colorful samples, we will be dishing out Fitt dad hats and tote bags to the first 100 participants, and you’ll have a chance to chat with our friends from UPMC Health Plan about your personal health — they’ll have health coaches on site to talk shop.
There are no tickets necessary—it’s a free event after all—but an RSVP on Facebook ensures we won’t short you on the snacks. See you in the South Side.
