What type of group fitness events are these? 

Workouts are instructor led and vary from group fitness classes to guided active tours. This is not a bootcamp, these are instructor led fitness experiences. We make your body move in new ways and incorporate high and low impact forms of exercise including high intensity interval training (HIIT), pilates, cardiovascular training, yoga, strength training, core conditioning and boxing to name a few. We make the most of the time we have with you and focus on effective, efficient results that burn off the calories you don't want floating around after your trip. You may also experience an instructor in costume, post workout cocktail or bead throw. This is NOLA and everything and anything goes. Events are fully customizable so call us to discuss your ideas.

What is the social aspect all about?

Icebreakers, team builders, raffles, endorphin rushes and more. We encourage a social atmosphere at our events so chances are you will meet someone new. We love our friends in the local business community in New Orleans and want to connect you to the awesome things they do. So at the end of certain workouts, we may raffle select offers to the local restaurants, bars and live music shows that Trip Advisor & Yelp have never heard about.  

How much does it cost and how do I create an event for my group?

Give us a call at 504-510-1973 and we will create a proposal and quote for your group.  

Where are you located?

New Orleans, Louisiana! Our event locations vary and you can decide where you want your event to be.  That can include a beautiful riverfront pavilion or charming hotel courtyard or even a room in the convention center. 

What levels are your fitness events and classes designed for? 

Each workout allows beginners, intermediate, advanced and even elite levels to participate and get an equally challenging workout. You don't need to be a fitness nut to enjoy these classes, but you'll still be happy if you are.

Do I need an exercise mat or equipment?

No, we got you covered.

Do I need to bring my own water & towel to the workout? 

Yes. We advise you to bring a bottle of water and a small towel (you may sweat...a little). For running tours, our guides will have water for you. We can always include food and beverage if you like.

What should I wear to the workouts? 

Exercise attire is appropriate. That can be t-shirts, tanks, shorts, sports bras and socks. Athletic shoes are required. Please dress appropriately for the weather. Feel free to get festive, most of our instructors do!

How long do the workouts last? 

Usually 30-45 minutes, but it totally depends on the events. We get plenty of work done and respect your time so you can galavant around the city. 

Do you do corporate events?

Yes! We love making professionals sweat and host numerous corporate events and team builders. Please contact us to discuss your needs.

Do you cater to special groups like Bachelorette Parties and Weddings??

Yes. Please email rupa@thesweatsocial.com to discuss details. 

I’m new to exercise, can I still come to your workouts? 

Absolutely! Let the instructors know that you are new to exercise and pace yourself.

Should I tip my instructor or guide? 

We pay our instructors and guides competitively so there is no need to tip or feel obligated to do so. If you feel that your instructor or guide provided you service above and beyond your expectations and you would like to provide a tip, feel free to do so. Thank you.

What if I have an injury?

If you have been cleared to partake in exercise by your doctor, you are welcome to join. Our instructors are knowledgable, certified group fitness instructors, personal trainers and have first aid + CPR experience. Please inform them of your injury and if there is a particular exercise you are uncomfortable with, they will provide modifiers for you.

Do you cancel for rain or inclement weather?

Outdoor events will still be held if there is some slight rain and weather contingencies are always available for groups.

What type of certifications do instructors hold?

Our instructors are certified by accredited bodies of diet and exercise with national and international recognition. Commonly our instructors hold ACE (American Council on Exercise) personal training certifications as well as AFAA (Aerobics and Fitness Association of America) group fitness certifications. In addition, many instructors have certifications in CPR and AED.

Is there any age restriction to join?

We ask that participants be at least 16 years of age or come with a supervising adult.

Do you accept Class Pass?

Currently we do not accept Class Pass.
