Free Gym Classes & Spa Sessions!

Eating healthy food (especially when it’s on discount) is most certainly a respectable way to try to shed a few pounds, but we all know it’s slightly pointless without a bit of exercise here and there.

The problem with exercise though, and we’re sure some will agree, is that it’s too darn expensive. And before you tell us that jogging is free, there’s something about running around Beijing while breathing in that fresh winter air that just sounds a bit off.

Anyway, here’s the thing. We’ve found the perfect solution.

As part of our Sherpa’s Fitness & You celebrations, we’ve managed to get F45, Basefit and AWA Health Spa to provide you guys with some free classes and sessions!

Read up on them, choose which ones you want to attend and make sure you sign up in the comments section or via direct message when we release each establishment’s individual posts. They’ll be coming up this week and next!
