20 must-see moments from our NYC #FitnessBiathlon

Body By SimoneThis past Saturday marked our third annual Fitness Biathlon, where more than 440 Well+Good readers took on a challenge that many a maven can only dream of: back-to-back workouts at some of the buzziest studios in New York City.

With the local fitness scene hotter than ever (so. many. new. studios.), we’re not kidding when we say that we worked up a sweat. But it definitely wasn’t all work and no play; after surviving a double dose of classes, our biathletes joined us for a celebratory after-party at the Dream Downtown, where there were mini-massages, a hair braiding bar, and some of our favorite electrolyte-replenishing snacks.

Best of all? It was for a good cause. This year we raised over $15,000 for Girls on the Run, an organization that empowers young girls through, among other things, getting active.

We rounded up some of our favorite (read: sweatiest) moments of the day. Couldn’t make it to our NYC Fitness Biathalon? We’re bringing the fun to Boston and Chicago next! —Sarah Sarway
