Date:8/1/2013

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) August 01, 2013

Serving Charlotteans for over 138 years, the YMCA of Greater Charlotte has been a mecca for those dedicated to improving their health and well-being. As physical conditioning trends have evolved throughout the years, the Y continues to create innovative programs designed to deliver fitness and fun for all. A leading provider in the fitness industry, the Dowd YMCA will raise the bar on the current extreme exercise craze by hosting the first-ever “Dowd in the Dark” event on Saturday, August 10 from 8:00 PM to 12:00 AM.

The special one-night-only “Dowd in the Dark” event combines hard-core, high-intensity group exercise sessions with a night club or party atmosphere featuring a live DJ, door prize giveaways and more. Participants will be pushed to their physical limit through intense exercise classes such as “Insanity,” a cutting-edge workout regimen that features strenuous interval training, presented by a certified Beachbody trained professional. Others may choose to train like a “Spartan,” guided by a triathlete or opt to indulge in power yoga facilitated by a master instructor. Enthusiasts are also given the opportunity to participate in Hip-Hop dance intervals or visit the onsite hydration station to rest and rejuvenate in between power exercise sessions.

Created by Nancy Jones, Group Exercise Director at the Dowd YMCA, the “Dowd in the Dark” event is designed to provide a unique and fun social opportunity for those who crave extreme fitness challenges. “For extreme fitness enthusiasts, there is something spiritual about physical exertion,” reports Jones. “I customized this event especially for our Y members who expressed a desire to experience an intense physical challenge in a fun, safe and socially enriching way,” she adds. “We are so proud to offer exciting, innovative fitness programming to our Y members and the community.”

Due to the intensity of its group exercise sessions, “Dowd in the Dark” is recommended for individuals with advanced fitness and endurance levels. Tickets are priced at $39 for YMCA members and $49 for non-YMCA members. Space is limited. Please register by Wednesday, August 7, 2013. For more information, please contact Nancy Jones at (704) 716-6113 or email nancy(dot)jones(at)ymcacharlotte(dot)org.
