Get Ready for it CITY SHRED

On Saturday, November 16, CITY SHRED, Instagram’s largest fitness event, comes to the West coast, led by our city’s top gyms and trainers. This epic group-training experience will challenge you to push your limits, work as a team and break a sweat!

Think of CITY SHRED as Instagram’s largest fitness social community brought to life with the chance to connect with inspiring trainers, athletes, industry influencers and role models IRL. This is not your typical mid-week workout, but one fuelled by teamwork and the energy of your peers to complete and reach your personal max.

CITY SHRED kicks off with an optional partner burpee challenge that will have participants leaving it all on the turf. Then, warm up with some of Vancouver’s top fitness trainers recognized by the local fitness community for their diverse training backgrounds and methods.

The morning peaks with a HIIT workout led by NYC-renowned trainer and former athlete Dennys Lozada.

Dennys is a former athlete who, from the age of seven, grew up in the boxing ring in Red Hook Brooklyn, which led to many amateur boxing victories and a professional boxing career well into his twenties.

His successful career includes being a varsity football athlete at Towson University. He currently uses the fundamentals of his life-long training as an athlete to coach and high-performance train in New York. In addition to building his own successful PT business, Dennys is also a highly-sought after (and usually waitlisted) instructor at Fhittingroom, one of the city’s the top studios.

He also happens to be only one of 20 trainers worldwide to be named a Nike Master Trainer as a true authority and leader in his field.

Together, the crew will complete 90 minutes of work broken into five segments, followed by a cool-down session. Following the event, attendees will have the opportunity to mingle and refuel while creating social content with old and new friends alike.
