opener_athleta_biathlonOn Saturday, November 23 almost 80 Well+Good readers scored a ticket to the Flatiron Fitness Biathlon, celebrating the opening of Athleta’s Flatiron location in New York. Readers signed up for Team Cardio, which included high-intensity interval training at Barry’s Bootcamp followed by a cycling class at Flywheel, or Team Tone, Flybarre followed by a vinyasa class at Yogamaya.

After the two-hour sweat fest, everyone met up at Athleta’s Flatiron store for post-workout fuel from Mulberry & Vine and Turmeric Alive, massages by Zeel, makeup touch-ups by W3LL PEOPLE, goodie bags, and shopping. All of the proceeds went to the non-profit organization, Girls on the Run. And of course, we couldn’t resist documenting the amazing fitness event. Check out the photos now, and join us for our next Biathlon….
