I thought about doing a roundup of Halloween-themed workout classes, but after struggling to find any, I thought to myself, maybe it’s just not done. Maybe it’s simply too weird to combine Halloween and boutique fitness. After all, there are very few costumes suited to doing burpees in. We can’t all be 2008 Lisa Rinna Dance Body Beautiful for Halloween! (Though it would be relatively easy to put together, and I would like to see it done.)
However, this morning when I checked Instagram, I was proven wrong. It can be done, and it will be done by Vital Fitness Studio. On October 31, from 7 to 8pm, The Joule’s boutique gym will taking things up to the hotel’s rooftop for a Halloween HIIT class followed by themed booze and bites. (Costumes aren’t required, but they are “highly encouraged.”)
Those familiar with Vital know that the sleek, subterranean gym also hosts excellent spin and yoga classes, but their HIIT class was what earned them a Best of Big D award this year. So, in addition to being fun and on theme, you know you’re going to get a good workout.
