Take a FREE Fitness Class Every Day of SXSW!

South by Southwest is bringing more than just film, media and music to Austin this year. IT’S TIME TEXAS and Choose Healthier want to make sure there’s plenty of fitness opportunities too! We’re partnering up with some of our favorite Choose Healthier Vendors to offer free fitness classes in Austin everyday March 14th-March 19th!

This week of free SXSW classes aligns perfectly with the goals and purpose of our Choose Healthier App. The app makes locating healthy activities and fitness classes around Central Texas easy. Choose Healthier is a free download, and houses thousands of healthy opportunities from hundreds of great local vendors year-round, including both recurring classes and one-time events. You can filter the activities in the app by location, activity type, your age, price, and more!

With the help of the great vendors that partner with Choose Healthier, our SXSW calendar features six unique fitness organizations we love! This is your chance to check out classes from Blue Honey Yoga, Ro Fitness Austin, Castle Hill Fitness, Fit Chicks Austin, Camp Gladiator, and Ballet Austin.
