Wicked Workouts

Now that it is late October (What??!!), it means time for the start of the holidays, which also means holidays indulgence! Instead of becoming less active at the start of the holiday season, I plan to ramp up my exercise a bit, to avoid some holiday stress and all some of those sugary treats. Here are a few fun events in the Tampa area to stay active at the holiday season kickoff!

Wicked Yoga

Lululemon of Hyde Park Village is at it again! They are hosting a frightfully good time at a Halloween specific yoga event!

Witches and devils and scary things

Yoga in costume is what this night brings

On a tall rooftop in Hyde Park Village
Lots of spooky treats for you to pillage

Bring your mat and your freaky friends
We may Monster Mash before the night ends

Come in costume, frightening mask or toga
Let’s get down with some WICKED YOGA!

This is for all ages and as always, this event is complementary. Healthy refreshments will be provided.

  • When: Friday October 26th
  • Where: Hyde Park Village
  • Who: Everyone!
  • How much: Totally Free!

peerFit’s Fitness Party

Enjoy an outdoor workout overlooking beautiful downtown Tampa led by celebrity fitness trainer Fitz Koehler. The workout will include circuit training, ropes, yoga, and more. This is also a great time to meet some local trainers from the Tampa Bay area, as they will be providing training and information.

Haven’t heard of peerFit? It is a new mobile app that makes fitness fit your life! From their website – It offers digital triggers and easily accessible fitness information on-the-go, including text-message reminders and calendar integration. The website and the app provide local fitness information including fitness class locations (no matter the gym, studio or fitness center), times, intensity levels and reviews.

  • When: Sunday, November 11th from 3-5 pm
  • Where: Hyde Park Village, on top of Garage C
  • Who: People of every fitness level!
  • How much: Free!

Pretty Muddy Women’s MudRun

The all new Pretty Muddy Women’s Only Mud Run is coming to Tampa! That’s right – no boys allowed! This event is a non-timed, adventure 5k Obstacle and Mud Course that is open to absolutely all women. It is a great time to leave the guys and home and get a little dirty.

The obstacles look like an absolute blast – I can’t wait to try them all. And don’t worry, if you want to do the race but just aren’t sure about the difficulty of obstacles, you are not forced to do them. All of the obstacles can be bypassed, so you don’t feel pressured if you are uncomfortable. Sign up before October 27th and get $10 off when you use the code Foodandfunontherun. I am running in the 8:30am wave if you would like to join me!

  • When: Saturday, November 10th
  • Where: Little Everglades Ranch, Dade City
  • Who: Girls Only!
  • How much: $59.50 if you use my code (foodandfunontherun)

And on a side note –  I can’t wait to get back to running this weekend! I think I am finally ready to ease back in to a few easy miles this weekend. Woo hoo! Break time from the Chicago Marathon is over!!

Do you have any fin fitness events in your area at the start of the holidays? What do you like to do to stay active when the holidays creep up?

    I finally started researching local races, and even though I haven’t registered for any yet, I know simply having them on my workout calendar will help me stay focused and hold myself accountable. Having a tangible goal/race in the future will hopefully make it easier to not eat too many holiday treats. ;)
