Studio Happenings: Week of 11/2

Join Our November Challenge... Try 2 or a Few!

The challenge... 
Monday, November 2, we'll be launching our first ever Try 2 or a Few challenge! Forget coming in for a quick 40-minute Xpress class. For the month of November, we are challenging #poisenation to double and triple up on your classes to help get yourself in your BEST shape BEFORE the holidays arrive! We will be offering some of our favorite combos for your consideration here on the blog, but also can't wait to see and hear what you challenge yourself to do! Our staff will be joining in on the fun, so you aren't alone, AND there are some prizes at stake!

The winners... 
There will be plenty of opportunities to win - and we've got some great prizes in store. Every week in November will have a winner based on whoever earned the most points that week, and the grand prize winner at the end of the month will win a free month of unlimited classes for December!

The points... 
Double: 1 point
Triple: 2 points

In case of a tie... For the grand prize, the individual with the highest number of total classes for the month of November will win. For the weekly prizes, a winner will be randomly selected from the names of the individuals tied for first.

The prizes...
We're getting together some great prizes for you! Lash & Brow Bar by Tia Joy will offer a full set of lash extensions to the grand prize winner, plus weekly prizes of facial peels and exfoliating treatments. Kiara Mooney, Hairstylist & Makeup Artist, will be offering hair care packages for our winners. We'll also have some sweet swag from Lululemon, and we're still working on getting some more swag from other local businesses and #poisenation favorites. 

The details...
Cost: $45 ($40 for unlimited members). The entry fee includes a limited edition "I tried 2 or a few" blinged out SP tank - only the brave challengers will be able to rock this gear! Challenge members will also have exclusive access to the Challenger Facebook group, where we'll be posting tips, tricks, motivation, and some additional challenge opportunities... plus some good-natured competition!

Schedule Change: Thursdays Poised & Hot Bodies with Kelsey

Beginning Thursday, November 5, Kelsey's Poised & Hot Bodies class will begin at 5:15pm. If you haven't tried this class yet, we hope you'll give it a shot at the new time. Heated classes are a great way to switch things up and challenge your bodies in new ways - to learn more, read our blog post about the benefits of heated classes! And for your challengers, maybe consider making this one of your doubles - get hot & sweaty with Kelsey, pause to rehydrate, then jump into 7pm SPiit with Janie! 

Winter Coat Drive

As the temperatures drop, if you pull out your winter coat and decide it's time for an update, don't throw that coat out - donate it! Last year's children's coat drive was so successful that we decided to bring it back for 2015, and this year we'll be accepting coats for adults as well. We're partnering with Burlington Coat Factory's Warm Coats, Warm Hearts drive. There will be a bin in the SP lobby where you can drop off your coats, which will then be distributed to individuals in need across Massachusetts. 

Let's Nail Cancer

Studio Poise is joining forces with Team Avalanna at Cure ATRT Now in support of the Let's Nail Cancer initiative. This social media campaign will run from now through November 25, and we'd love for #poisenation to show our support of this fantastic cause. We'll have purple nail polish on hand in the SP lobby, as well as some fun photo props to spice up your selfie. Take time out after class (or between doubles, for you challengers!) to grab the friends on the next mat and snap a pic in support of this cause. To learn more, visit www.nailcancer.org

Poised Pages is back!

The Studio Poise book club, Poised Pages, will be back next week - join us on Wednesday, November 11, at 8pm. We'll be reading Carry On, Warrior: The Power of Embracing your Messy, Beautiful Life, by Glennon Doyle Melton. This is such an impactful book - even if you don't have time to read the whole thing by next week, every page has something to offer, and we can't wait to discuss it with you! The class is free, but don't forget to sign up through our online scheduler so we know how many people to plan for (...because of course, no book club is complete without wine). 

See you around the studio next week! And don't forget - if you're taking Strike a Poise with Brittany tomorrow, October 31, come decked out in your Halloween finest - we're getting Poised & Spooky for the holiday!
