Cycle & Sweat at the Derby Street Shoppes

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

Hi, guys!

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to attend a really cool fitness event at the Derby Street Shoppes. It was called Cycle & Sweat, a family-fitness block party with all sorts of participating retailers, including Lululemon, ivivva, and Whole Foods Market among others. It was quite the event and right up my alley, so I’m especially glad that I had the chance to attend.

The Cycle & Sweat Fitness Block Party featured three hours of exercise classes with all proceeds benefiting ALS One, a Massachusetts-based organization dedicated to fighting ALS and providing high-level care for those who are diagnosed.


I arrived a little before 9:00 AM when the event started. Registration was a breeze (participants signed up online at Eventbrite) and included some awesome swag with various freebies, deals, and discounts from retailers at the Derby Street Shoppes (i.e. MiniLuxe, Legal Sea Foods).

Whole Foods Market was also in attendance providing complimentary food and beverages. Green juice and coffee? Yes, please!

Cycle & Sweat participants could choose from either a 60-minute spinning class from Rev’d Indoor Cycling or a bootcamp class from Mobile Fitness Systems.

I registered for the bootcamp class, which was group circuit training with all of the equipment provided and set up by Mobile Fitness Systems.


And they had everything– from a squat rack and kettlebells to TRX and undulation ropes. It was basically an entire gym at the Derby Street Shoppes!

After a quick demo of the movements required for the workout, we got to work!


We performed two rounds of the high-intensity, circuit-style workout and finished with a serious abdominal session that I’m STILL sore from!

Good times!!

All in all, Cycle & Sweat was a wonderful event to benefit a great cause. I already loved shopping at the Derby Street Shoppes, but now there’s even more reason to visit, like these events. And, next month, they’re hosting a Halloween Block Party, which I am so looking forward to attending with Qman. (He wants to be a ghost!) Details below!

P.S. You can still purchase a “Happy Hour Starts Now” tank to benefit the CCFA! But they’re only available for another 5 days, so be sure to hop on it! 🙂



  1. Looks like a really nice event and weather! Just curious, do you see yourself getting back into routine daily life posts? I miss those daily recaps that were the meat and potatoes of your blog.

    Thanks! =)
