bring a buddy
We’re in the midst of Bring a Buddy Week at Spark Fitness! Research shows that having a workout partner can help you reach your fitness goals faster. Why not grab a friend and invite them to a workout of their choice?
Through February 5, members can invite a (non-member) friend to workout for free. Tell your pal to download the Spark Fitness Buffalo app, create an account, and let us know which time you are planning on attending!

more about Rachel
I used to do group training classes at an old gym years back, and missed it a lot. I saw what Spark Fitness had to offer on Instagram and knew I had to get back into it. I feel that I push myself a little bit harder with a group than when I’m just by myself.
What’s your favorite part about Spark Fitness? The atmosphere! I love that everyone is always chatting before and after class. Everyone is always so friendly and easy to talk to. I know it’s a little corny to say, but we’re like one big happy family!
Favorite food: Tacos 😋
Favorite quote: “Dreams don’t work unless you do.”
Favorite hobby: Working out
Favorite exercise: Push press or deadlift
Advice to a newcomer: Consistency really is key. The first few days will be hard, but keep pushing through! Soon enough, you’ll notice things get easier and easier! You’ll be able to do moves you thought were never possible!
I’m one of the people that had to learn the hard way. I’ve been on and off with my fitness journey for years, and just in the past 3 months I’ve made more progress than I have in the past 2 years. I did it just by showing up and following my nutrition!
Great job Rachel! We can’t wait to see your continued progress!
now it’s your turn

happening this month
fundraiser: braids & shimmers by mp artistry
New Spark Fitness member Maegan is the talented owner of MP Artistry. She will be doing a pop-up for braids and shimmers on Savage Saturday, February 11 from 7-11 a.m., with all proceeds benefiting IceCycle.

pop-up stretch class
Stretchd Out Buffalo is teaming up with Spark Fitness to offer a Stretch & Restore class on February 19 at 11 a.m. that focuses on deep stretching, breathing, and mobility techniques.
Class starts with breathing techniques to help stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system (the system that helps us relax) then progresses into slow stretching and mobility flows. By the end of this class you will feel relaxed, restored, and hopefully will be able to take some of these movements and apply them into your daily life/workouts!
The class will be $10 for nonmembers and $5 for members. Sign up today!
coming up in march
- Mobility & Movement with Jillian: March 5 at 11 a.m.
- Twerk with Brit Leo: March 10 at 6:30 p.m.
Several Spark Fitness instructors and members are participating in IceCycle on March 11 at the (sold out!) 1:45 p.m. session to raise funds for cancer research and patient care programs at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The event is spectator friendly, so bring your family and friends to participate in the fun and cheer us on!
