Let’s pretend the holiday of love (Valentines Day, yo) exists for more than just one day in February. Let’s also pretend that eating from a prix fixe menu isn’t how you want to celebrate Valentines Day with your special someone. Studies show that we remember experiences more than gifts.
So maybe think twice before buying another watch, and consider planning an activity for you and bae (or bestie) to celebrate with. And hey, if you go out to a bottomless brunch after the workout, no judgment here. The (unofficial) votes are in! Valentines Day 2018 is all about sweating with your sweetheart. Here are some top picks for Valentines Fitness Events in Denver.
Does your Valentine like bendy and booze-y?
I think we can all agree that workouts in breweries are one of the best Colorado fitness trends. Tickets are cheap and always include a yoga flow and one cold one. How about Apres Yoga at Alpine Dog Brewery Sunday Feb 11 10:30 am or Yoga & A Brew at The Brew on Broadway Feb 18 10:30 am.
Prefer wine? We’ve got you covered with Vino and Vinyasa with Kimmy Hidalgo at Silver Vines Winery Feb 11 10 am – noon. Want some Justin Timberlake to help light your fire? Join Big Booty Yoga at the Walnut Room with JT(ree Pose): Justin Timberlake Yoga, Sun Feb 11 at 9 am or 11 am. Finish class with the option of a draft beer or mimosa. (Everyone wins!)

Finally, get your boyfriend to the barre with Black Light Barre with Sonic Flow and Sound Off Colorado at Atherial Fitness.

Tip of the Month: Can’t convince your friends to join you on your fitness adventures?
Check out Meetup for local run groups, yoga clubs etc. You can RSVP to events so you’ll know exactly who is going. Takes a little bit of the “I don’t know anyone here” phobia away.
Check out the FitLo Passport. We want to help you find a studio you can call home. So we’re taking you out to check out three studios per month. We take care of the details and we all meet up together so you don’t have to go alone, plus there are extra goodies and prizes.
