What do you get when you mix working out with a networking event? #Sweatworking.
Love to work out? Do you have a passion project? At last night’s #Sweatworking event at the Athleta store on Newbury Street I got super sweaty and connected with lots of like-minded people with varying passions, from their careers to charities. So who was the mastermind behind this? Eventbrite! Through a partnership with Athleta, Eventbrite hosted the awesome event.
When I arrived, I was asked to make a name tag with my name, passion project, and a skill that I am good at. This was a great way to break the ice with others during the networking event. Then I laid my yoga mat out and the event got started. The first hour of the event was a cardio workout led by an Exhale Boston instructor.
Now, let me tell you. I am a fitness fanatic. I like to consider myself in good shape. I’m training for a marathon at the moment, so I’m no slouch when it comes to cardio. Well. I was wrong. I ate a huge slice of humble pie during this workout. As I type this my shoulders are screaming Uncle. But it sure was a lot of fun.
After the workout, delicious snacks were provided by Pretzel Crisps. Pretzel Crisps, cheese, and jam were delicious. After a quick snack break, everyone started connecting, networking, and sharing laughs about the workout. It was great seeing everyone share their passions with one another.
I want to send a big thank you to Eventbrite for bringing this event to my attention! Buying tickets was easy and painless. They even have an app that lets you download your ticket, making it really easy for folks like me who don’t have a printer at home to print tickets.
