You Can Pay for Your Workout in Canned Goods at This DC-Area Barre Studio

Now that the holidays are nigh upon us, there are two things we’re thinking about: giving back in the season of gratitude, and finding ways to stay in shape during the many, many food-centric celebrations before us.

Lucky for us, a DC-area barre studio is giving us a way to do both things at one time: between November 16 and 23, you can bring three canned goods to any Barre3 location and get a free workout in return. The canned goods will be donated to Martha’s Table, Capital Area Food Bank, and Carpenter’s Shelter. You’ll be playing a part in helping those in need, and simultaneously, helping your abs get a seriously strenuous core workout.

There are five Barre3 locations around the Washington region—14th Street, Georgetown, Union Station, Spring Valley, and Old Town Alexandria—and all are participating in the food drive. And if you’re already a member and don’t need a free class, you can always gift the free sweat session to a friend.
