Saturday, August 19th:

Fit: We'll spend the first half of the day getting fit with some of the best trainers in our region! Choose from high-intensity interval training, cardio, strengthening & conditioning, yoga and more! Take a break in between fitness sessions to attend a few interactive workshops on nutrition, fitness, and more. 

This year's Apparel & Footwear partner, Nike, will be gearing up all attendees with an exclusive City Fit Girls x Nike FitRetreat shirt! They'll also be on-hand throughout the day so that you can test new Nike shoes during your workouts and more. 

*A full schedule of workouts, instructor bios and workshop descriptions will be released soon*

Retreat: Once the sweating is over, we'll retreat with an afternoon of pampering -- you deserve it. Take a break for a catered brunch buffet to help you refuel and enjoy some "me-time" with brunch cocktails, massages, demos, and discussions to help you relax and recover.

We'll be featuring classic alcoholic and non-alcoholic mimosas (included with your ticket purchase) and fresh juice will be available for purchase from RIJuice.
