Summer is officially here and The J is celebrating all season long as part of its “Let’s Get Social” campaign with a variety of events for those looking to come together as community in fun and engaging ways. The events begin with a splash on Tuesday, July 4 with a FREE 4th of July Pool Party from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Take a dip in one of two outdoor pools or the natatorium while enjoying poolside watermelon and lemonade. There will also be live music and prize giveaways. From 10:30 to 11:15 a.m. attendees are invited to try out a pop-up version of the “Rock the Raft” series - this craze of the fitness world uses floating fitness mats and water to transform boutique studio classes. Guests who become members of The J during the July 4 event will receive 30 percent off of a one-year membership.
Also during July, the community is invited to get social during FREE spin classes as part of the “Tour de J Spinning Challenge.” While riding a state-of-the-art stationary bike, participants will experience a virtual ride of the exact Tour de France route projected on the screens in the studio. The “Tour de J Spinning Challenge” takes place daily from July 1 through 31 (and riders can enjoy any of the 12 weekly classes for NO COST for the entire month). Register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Riders earn stages each time they participate in a class ride. The earned stages will increase opportunities to be entered in weekly drownings to earn custom t-shirt, prizes and more.
The “Summer Rockin’ Series” of freebies continues on Sunday, July 16 with more “Rock The Raft” Aqua Physical floating fitness classes. Guests can sample a variety of Aqua Physical classes offered all summer at The J including floating boot camp fusion, floating yoga, floating dance/drum core fusion and a special “Float Your Zone” event in August (date to be announced) with a live DJ and drummer performing poolside. Drop-in “Rock The Raft” classes are available for $15 for members and $20 for non-members and a five-pack of passes is $60 for members and $75 for non-members. A class schedule and registration form are available online.
“We pride ourselves on continually offering different and unique fitness options; it’s part of The J’s philosophy about health for the whole family,” says Terri Arends, The J’s Group Fitness Director. “Whether people are new to working out or seeking something to mix up their existing routine, our hope is to provide these free trials to get more people connected to the sense of community that comes from group workouts.”
To close out the “Summer Rockin’ Series,” The J will host a FREE Dance Jam on Sunday, July 30 from 1 to 4 p.m. Held in conjunction with National Weekend of Dance, the day includes Zumba (1 to 1:25 p.m.); Swank, an East Coast dance partner phenomenon, (1:30 to 1:55 p.m.); Soulful Line Dance (2 to 2:25 p.m.); Afro Caribbean Dance (2:30 to 3:10 p.m.); and J-Club-cize (3:15 to 4 p.m.) all in the comfort of the air-conditioned fitness studio. When not dancing, attendees can enjoy splashing around in two outdoor pools with a live DJ and other fun activities.
All “Summer Rockin’ Series” events will be held at 7900 Northaven Rd. in Dallas. More information is available online or by contacting Teri Arends at email@example.com.
