Most of us have taken a class at our local gym, sought options for healthier cooking, or calmed our anxiety through meditation and yoga. In a series of unique health options that will take place throughout the Edgewater over the next two weeks, the area will be introduced to a variety of fresh programs that will take your workout to a whole new level.

FitPop Edgewater is being billed as a program that will expose residents to the many available wellness options in the area and help locals find new ways to enrich their lifestyles with new fitness trends. The first classes started yesterday and will continue through November 3 at host businesses throughout the community.

What is Futsal? It is a is a fast-paced small sided soccer game that is played across the world and it is one of the unique class options FitPop makes available. Other classes that are out of the ordinary are also offered such as brunch yoga with mimosas, pet-friendly options, acrobatic wheel and circus workouts and a circuit training class that includes a post-sweat beer tasting. If you are not into experimenting, a wide range of standard classes are also available including Crossfit and reiki.

To add to a well-rounded line-up, there will also be healthy cooking classes, beauty classes and options for kids and families such as Jams & Skates – 90s themed roller skating. All classes can be found by going to the website of the program’s organizer, the Edgewater Chamber of Commerce(ECC).

“With such an active community located along the lakefront wellness businesses have found a niche in Edgewater,” said the ECC Executive Director Christina Pfitzinger. “With the support of this vibrant fitness focused community we are excited to launch this new event. FitPop is a great opportunity for participants to stretch and try something new.”

FitPop Edgewater, which is in its inaugural year, is a collaborative effort between the Chamber and neighborhood wellness and fitness providers. Classes will be organized into at least one of four different categories (family or pet-friendly, unique experiences, adventure-seeker/high intensity, or mental wellness) in order to promote fun and inclusive wellness choices.

FitPop Edgewater is open to the general public and offers 40 options for all fitness levels, genders and ages. You must be 21 or over to attend events that feature alcohol.  Tickets can be purchased online ​and offer a $30 Explorer Package to access up to 3 classes/sessions and a $45 Guru Package to access up to 6 classes/sessions.
