MARINA—Sweat Republic is a spanking new gym at 2184 Greenwich Street at Fillmore that has a bevy of indoor surfboards. More on that later this week (it's Fitness Week at Racked, you know!), but in the meantime, mark your calendar for their grand opening party on Friday, January 10 at the gym from 7 to 9pm. Lululemon will be showcasing its latest styles, instructors will perform fitness demos, plus you'll enjoy snacks, refreshments and a DJ. Wear those new workout duds you got to encourage keeping your New Year's resolutions! [Racked Inbox]
PALO ALTO—Every second and fourth Wednesday of the month starting January 15, from 6 to 7pm, the Patagonia store at 525 Alma Street in Palo Alto will host community yoga sessions completely free. Pheonix Bick-Maurischat, who discovered the healing power of yoga on her path to recovery from a series of dance injuries, will teach her vinyasa-based practice. Everyone from beginners to advanced practitioners is welcome. Don't forget your mat! [Racked Inbox]
