This high-energy event is an annual favorite of 12,000+ women across the country and made its debut in the Bay Area this year.
From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., San Francisco ladies had a fun-filled fitness sesh at Little Marina Green and enjoyed a special appearance by Alison Sweeney, host of the Biggest Loser and author of “The Mommy Diet”.
Ticketholders were given the choice of 17 different fitness classes like Retro-Robics, Beach Body, Masala Bhangra and many others, which featured top instruction from San Francisco’s innovative fitness leader Crunch Fitness. There were even unique classes inspired by TV shows Glee and Dancing With the Stars.
