It’s hard to believe that the DC-based workout that’s made a name for itself both as a favorite of the First Lady and as an absurdly intense workout has only been around for three years. But as Solidcore celebrates its three-year anniversary, it’s giving back with a 24-hour marathon of classes.

The classes will kick off on Saturday, November 5 at 7 AM at the Adams Morgan studio, 1706 Columbia Rd., NW. Classes are scheduled for every hour on the hour, and they’ll run—with just one interruption, for the Daylight Savings time adjustment—through Sunday, November 6 at 7 AM. Signups are currently open for classes, which are $30 apiece.

If there’s nothing in the world that could get you to sign up for a painful workout at 3 AM on Sunday morning, there’s this: all proceeds from the class will go to benefit Partnership for a Healthier America, which is working to fight childhood obesity and has Michelle Obama as its honorary chair.

“I ran a non-profit for six and a half years, so giving back is in my blood,” said Solidcore owner and CEO Anne Mahlum in a press release. “We chose to work with Partnership for a Healthier America because of their mission as well as to show our support for Mrs. Obama, one of our top clients.”

The classes are all themed, including an early 2000 jams class; a lights-off, glow-sticks class; and a Kanye vs. Tyga and Taylor class. The complete list of themes and a link to sign-ups can be found on Solidcore’s website.
