Your Ultimate Guide to Fitness World’s YouBetterWorx Event

The When, the Who, the What, and most importantly, the Why.

Pride doesn’t end in June. At Fitness World, we believe in celebrating our 2SLGBTQAI+ community all year long with events dedicated to bringing together a community of people who all share the same goals: health and inclusivity for all.

That’s where YouBetterWORX comes in.

Next month, the Vancouver community and beyond are coming together to celebrate life, health, diversity, and so much more with one of our favourite workouts, THE WORX.

To find out more information about the event, where it takes place, and why we believe it’s so important to celebrate inclusivity and health, keep reading!

The What

Fitness World Drag WORX

Join us for an evening of fun, sweat, and amazing music at our very own Drag WORX event hosted by us!

At Sunset Beach Park in Vancouver, we’ll be joined by Drag Superstars and our beloved Fitness World trainer, Andrew, to get in a full-body workout with our famous HIIT-style class: THE WORX.

THE WORX is an exclusive, 50-minute, Small Group Training program that uses High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) to focus on increasing cardiovascular endurance, building muscles, and releasing endorphins! Our Goal members get unlimited access to our most popular class, but on August 3rd, everyone gets access – for free, for everyone, all in one place!

Not only do you get to meet your favourite Drag Superstars and share an evening with a heart-pumping workout, you also have the chance to win a 1-year Fitness World Goal Membership! If you were considering joining Fitness World, now is your time to get a free year, on us!

Our Drag WORX class is in the evening starting at 5:30pm and ending at 7:30pm, so show up early, as parking is limited. We also recommend bringing sunscreen and a water bottle, for extra protection against the weather.

Pride festival goers are also invited to stop by the Sunset Beach Festival pop-up on July 31st to learn more about the importance exercise and movement play in discovering your best self, cultivating confidence, and feeling great!
