Class sessions range from $30-$50. Enrollment for our 12-week WorkFit Summer 2010 program, which runs from June 7/8 through August 27, will officially open on Wednesday, June 2.

The original mini-pilot, suggested by EVP of Business Operations Nathan Brostrom, sold out faster than $5 Springsteen tickets, so sign up early!
