Yes I know we haven’t even hit Halloween, but I wanted to take a break from costume planning & trick or treating to remind everyone that Holiday Hoopla is just 6 weeks away! Hoopla has a bit of a funky format, so here is what you need to know to participate!
What is Hoopla?
Hoopla is a great way to get a taste of how a competition is run for those who like to or are interested in trying one, but with some flexibility for those who may not be quite ready to jump into a full blown comp.
The Format is similar to a regular class, but with a bit of a competition element. We post the workouts ahead of time, you can choose your route of Fitness/Performance/Sport as you would in class, then perform the workouts! We do 3 workouts over the cour
se of the event, all usually less then 10 minutes long. The structure and timing is competition format, the choose your own adventure workouts is class format make this a great way to either just get a great workout, or try something new all for a good cause!
Afterwards we have refreshments, a holiday movie playing, and we wrap the gifts for our family to get into the holiday spirit.
Is there a good cause being supported?
ABSOLUTELY! Holiday Hoopla is an in-house throw down to raise money for the Adopt A Family program through our local YWCA. We use 100% of the proceeds to buy Christmas presents for 1-2 families in need in the FM Area. Often times these holiday lists include necessities like clothes, socks, jackets, winter hats, gift cards for basics like groceries & gas etc, but we of course throw in some toys for each kid to make it a special holiday.
Will there be prizes?
YES! We will have prizes for the top 3 finishers AND prizes for the top 3 costumes! This is a great way to get in on an awesome prize pack even if you are newer to fitness, just come and CRUSH the holiday costume category! We have seen some crazy creative costumes, costume changes from event to event, and some awesome group ideas too! Again all for an awesome cause!
How to I sign up?
You will need to register by Nov 15th in order to get your Hoopla Shirt! Registration is just $50, and again all proceeds will go toward our adopted family!
