SweatGuru Launches in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles to Make Finding a Workout Easy

San Francisco, CA – October 30, 2013 – SweatGuru, the marketplace that connects consumers with fitness classes, launched today in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles.

For fitness professionals, creating a business profile and listing classes on SweatGuru.com is always free. For a reasonable monthly fee starting at $19 per month, SweatGuru offers a simple, out-of-the-box way to run a small or mid-size fitness business ranging from 1 to 20 employees. Managing instructor schedules, client reservations and collecting payments online are all features of the core product. SweatGuru offers every new fitness professional a 30-day free trial.

 

“SweatGuru was born out of the need for a better way to manage my growing bootcamp business, take reservations and stay in touch with clients,” said Jamie Walker, SweatGuru co-founder and CEO. “As a fitness consumer, I also wanted an easy way to discover, reserve and pay for classes in my neighborhood. SweatGuru is built by fitness pros for fitness pros. We will start by growing our network in San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles, and look forward to expanding to other markets soon.”

“SweatGuru is the only easy, affordable way I have found to manage my dance business and grow my client base,” said Minila Shah, founder of Ajna Dance in New York, New York. “I love that listing classes is always free, but the real value is in the $19 per month package that helps me make more money and save time managing my schedule and payments. The SweatGuru team understand my needs and has built a solution that I rely on every day to run my business.”

Brooklyn Fit Chick Playlist: A Spooky Halloween Ride #sweatpink

BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST

“Halloween” (45-minute Ride)

Simpsons

 

Boo! Alright you ghosts and goblins—here is my Halloween-themed that I hope you enjoy. I avoided the clichéd stuff like Monster Mash or a “hit from hell” (Hangin’ Tough) and tried to find tunes that are spooky and interesting.

I hope you all have a great week and get tons of candy!

 

  • Don’t Fear the Reaper: Blue Oyster Cult

Such a great song and who couldn’t use more cowbell in their lives?

 

  • Disco Inferno: The Trammps

If only because I love the defiant way they spell their name.

 

  • Psycho Killer: Talking Heads

Everyone loves this song and it has an excellent, consistent beat.

 

 

  • Devil Inside: INXS

Remember how hot Michael Hutchence was?

 

 

  • Dead Man’s Party: Oingo Boigo

This song always reminds me of the Rodney Dangerfield classic Back to School.

 

 

  • Hell: Squirrel Nut Zippers

Back in the 90s there was a resurgence of swing music and this band did it pretty damn well.

 

 

  • Spooky:  Dusty Springfield

A cool classic by a white lady from England who sounds like a Southern black chanteuse.

 

 

  • People Are Strange: The Doors

For some reason I have been meeting people lately who tell me they are not fans of The Doors. Just as with Bowie last week I say– “Well, you are just f***ing wrong!”

 

 

  • The Time Warp: The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Of course.

 

  • Werewolves of London: Warren Zevon

Such a talented guy and he wrote so many great songs but he is mainly known for this one which I still think is pretty cool. (The actual werewolf in the video is hilarious by the way.)

 

  • Thriller: Michael Jackson

The full video for your viewing pleasure.

 

  • Witchcraft: Frank Sinatra

One of my favorites from Old Blue Eyes!

 

Until next time…

Brooklyn Fit Chick Playlist: Whole Lotta Love 50-Minute Playlist #sweatpink

BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST

“Whole Lotta Love” (50-minute Ride)

 Later Days

Hey there! Hi there! How there!

Are you ready to rock? Do you need some power music to crank up your enthusiasm? Well then today’s list is for you. If nothing else, take the first track listed below and crank it up to 11 and go kick some ass out there!

 

  • Whole Lotta Love: Led Zeppelin

This is one of those songs that whenever I start a class with it more than one person will shout out “yes!” The mighty Zep will get your butt in gear.

 

  • Leopard Print Pill-Box Hot: Beck

Beck redid a Bob Dylan for a charity album and managed to make it even better than the original.

  • Radio Song: R.E.M.

OMG—I miss this band!

 

  • Can You Read My Mind: The Killers

My absolute favorite song from The Killers—it put me in the best mood whenever I hear it.

 

  • Bit by Bit: Mother Mother

Once again I am falling in love with an Indie Canadian rock band. This song kills when played at full volume!

 

  • Diamonds : Rhianna

“Shine bright like a diamond!”

 

  • Paralyzer: Finger Eleven

Do you know the origin of the band name (giggling like a 12 year-old right now…)

 

  • Came Bach Haunted: Nine Inch Nails

One of the best bands I have ever seen live—ever!

 

  • Empire State of Mind: Jay-Z & Alicia Keys

Yes!

 

  • Ragdoll: Aerosmith

I think this is my favorite of the late 80s Aerosmith (hated the power ballads!)

 

  • Bohemian Like You: The Dandy Warhols

If you are not familiar with this band check out the 2004 film Dig—one of the best music documentaries I have ever seen.

 

  • Rock Steady: Frank Turner

One of my students recently asked “who is Aretha Franklin?” I made them download this song first.

 

  • Year of the Cat: Al Stewart

I love the light piano music in the beginning the then the build to big guitars.

 

That’s all I have today folks. Let me know about some of your favorite songs. I am always looking for good tunes.

 

Until next time…

Brooklyn Fit Chick “Back It Up” Playlist: Indoor Cycling/Running Playlist #sweatpink

BROOKLYN FIT CHICK’S PLAYLIST

“Back it Up” (50-minute Ride)

The Prodigy

The Prodigy

 

Hey there! Hi there! How there!

My newest playlist is a mix of styles, tempos and genres that I hope will get you motivated either on the road or the treadmill. Let me know what you think of it!

 

  • Back It Up: Caro Emerald

The 32 year-old Dutch singer just announced her first pregnancy and will go on tour later in 2014. Congrats Caro!

 

  • Mother Mary: Foxboro Hot Tubs

This band is a side project for the members of Green Day. Not sure why they didn’t include this on American Idiot but I love this song.

  • Uprising: Muse

I hear these guys kick serious ass live.

 

  • Supersoaker: Kings of Leon

After a few years of weird stories including a pigeon poop incident the popular band is band with this fast tune.

 

  • The World I Know: Collective Soul

This song was popular the year I moved to New York and always reminds me of walking around my new neighborhood in wonder.

 

  • Wake Up Call : Maroon 5

I cannot ignore the charisma of Adam Levine any longer…

 

  • Times Like These: Foo Fighters

When I am in the mood for sprints the Foos always get my heart pumping.

 

  • Tusk: Fleetwood Mac
  • If I were to totally change my look it would be to resemble Stevie Nicks just as she appears in this video. Right down to the perm-y hair and baton! (Special shout out to Solid Gold fans as well!)

     

    • Firestarter: The Prodigy

    I saw The Prodigy live and they freakin’ ruled!

     

    • The Rain: Missy Elliot

    “Beep, beep. Who’s got the keys to the jeep? Vroooom.”

     

    • Award Tour: A Tribe Called Quest

    90s hip hop!

     

    • Recovery: Frank Turner

    I am in love with this song. Love, love, love.

     

    • What Goes Around: Justin Timberlake

    And then we cool down….

     

    That’s all I have today folks. Let me know about some of your favorite songs. I am always looking for good tunes.

     

    Until next time…
