From our own Racked Fit Club to Santa Monica Pier's summer roga series, there's no shortage of helping hands that'll whip you into shape this season. If you're looking for some workout words of advice but aren't quite ready to show off your moves in front of strangers, head to fitness gear retailer Athleta in Santa Monica this Thursday for free exercise demos at the store's opening party.
Happening from 5:30 to 7:30pm, the previously online-only shop is teaming up with Marie Claire magazine to celebrate their second LA-area location. (Their Grove location opened in 2011.) In addition to enjoying healthy bites and expert workout tips, the first 100 guests will also score a free swag bag and one complimentary class from fitness membership site FITiST. Into it? Save yourself a spot and shoot an RSVP email to EventsMC@hearst.com.
