Welcome back, warm weather and a myriad of springtime pop-up workouts in Denver. Whether you’ve been getting back on the Platte River Trail for long bike rides or short run, or maybe you’ve just been enjoying the longer days on a patio with some beer, there’s no denying that the change of season brings with it the urge to introduce something new into your life. If you’ve been following this column for a few months now, then you know I’m all about exploring the Denver fitness community on the cheap. Here are few springtime pop-up workouts to enjoy with the spring weather — so many of these studios were previously featured on FitLo, so check out our reviews linked throughout if you’re curious about the format!
The Reconnect @ Urban Sanctuary (Wednesdays in April, 6 pm): Molly Bryn Yoga leads a donation-based flow that encourages a reset and community connection (+ tea!).
Pilates ABCs (Abs, Booty + Core) @ SHINE (April 4, 5 pm): This in-store workout (only $10.50) is led by TerraFly Pilates Studio and followed by wine and shopping. Best way to learn those ABCs if you ask me.
