FITWEEK Returns to Greater New Haven & Fairfield County


Last year I participated in FITWEEK and I have been looking forward to it ever since! It’s really a win-win-win event.  You get to go out and try different fitness activities and get your sweat on, while local businesses host a week long open house for potential new customers.  Plus, all the proceeds benefit the Closer to Free Fund!

The event last year left me with an awesome feeling of empowerment.  I faced my fear of heights at an indoor rock climbing class and I even made it through a whole Crossfit W.O.D! I am so excited for this year and I think I might even try class at Air Temple Arts, a circus studio that offers a variety of aerial dance, circus and yoga classes. Eeee!

I totally, 100% recommend FITWEEK to everyone! Whether you need to shake up your current workout routine, find some motivation to start exercising, or step out of your shell and try something new – there’s something for everyone!

Check out more details below:

The 2nd annual fitness event, hosted by FITWEEK, will take place September 30th- October 6th at participating gyms and fitness studios located in Greater New Haven and Fairfield Counties.
