Sweaty Saturday at Body By SimoneMore than 30 boutique fitness and training studios around New York City participated in the first ever Sweaty Saturday on October 13, an all-day event we’re calling Fashion Night’s Out for the fitness scene.

The city transformed into a playground of workout parties, and fitness-lovers (and Well+Good readers) were out in full force for the special classes that also donated funds to Heath Corps.

And we were there, too, starting with early morning asanas at SLT Yoga in Midtown to a noon class at Peak Performance in the Flatiron to an evening workout at Barry’s Bootcamp in Tribeca.

Check out these and many more studios, workouts, and New Yorkers who got their sweat on to celebrate…
