Thanks for sharing your fit friends.

We loved meeting your people.

Defined just got a little stronger. And it’s all because of you. Whether you brought your pal to class or encouraged them to book an intro session with our coaching team, we’re thrilled to know you’re proud of our community and eager to share it.

In addition to teaching and programming with purpose, we take pride in making movement fun and enjoyable. Focused training should be complemented by opportunities to try something new with someone new; maybe even somewhere new.

This month, we’re gearing up for another Beach Workout, marking our calendars for Coach Ben’s upcoming Tough Mudder, and planning yet another Bring-A-Friend Day.

Join our Defined Tough Mudder Team 

This is a great team-building activity for all fitness levels—and the perfect opportunity to step outside your comfort zone!  You’ll  apply skills you’ve learned in class to see what you’re capable of—all while having fun in a supportive environment. Plan to cheer on your teammates, overcome obstacles, and get muddy.

WHEN: Sunday, August 28th // 10-10:45AM Heat

WHERE: Rockford, IL

WHAT: The event is a 10k course  with 20 different obstacles. Obstacles range from army crawls, uphill climbs, a trudge through pools of muddy water, and more!  You can check out the different obstacles on the Tough Mudder website.

Most importantly: expect to get dirty!  Wear old workout clothes and shoes. If you consistently attend classes at least 3 days a week, you will be more than prepared for this.

Interested? Email Coach Ben at [email protected] to register, and for more information.
