While for most of us Fitbit is the tracker on your wrist and an app on your phone that tells you to move more, the fitness company has expanded into some IRL events with “Fitbit Local.” The event series, which launched in 2015 and has expanded to a handful of major cities around the country, is finally landing in Washington in July.

Fitbit has partnered with two local fitness gurus to bring the events to life: Chris Perrin, owner of Cut Seven and trainer extraordinaire, and Cynthia Lorena, a DC yoga instructor. On Saturday, July 15, Fitbit will launch its DC event series with a bootcamp led by Perrin followed by a yoga class with Lorena. Attendees can also expect a live deejay, refreshments, free t-shirts, and for the first 300 guests to show up, free Fitbit-branded yoga mats.

The kick-off event is just the start for the free sweat sessions. On August 20, Fitbit is hosting boot camp and yoga at Equinox Sports Club DC; on September 17, there’s boot camp and yoga at The Living Room nightclub downtown; and on October 22, there’s a boot camp class at the Georgetown Waterfront.

For updates on upcoming events, keep an eye on the Fitbit Local website. For the launch event on July 15, the festivities begin at 9 AM, and participants are recommended to bring their own yoga mat. To RSVP to the launch event, visit Eventbrite.
