We love the engagement we’ve been seeing on the new Spark Fitness app! It makes us so proud to see your ever-climbing class counts posted on social media – whether it’s your 5th class or 150th – and we hope it serves as a reminder that you’re not alone on your wellness journey: there’s an amazing Spark Family here to support you!

Speaking of a supportive community, please join us on Sunday, September 11 at 8 p.m. for the $100,000 Transformation Challenge live kickoff call. This invitation-only challenge is your chance to level up and be your absolute best self! We’ll be competing against other Prestige Labs-sponsored gyms, and on top of the big prize, they’re giving away $16,000 in cash and prizes just for participating.

The challenge starts September 26, and details about rules, pricing, and prizes will be covered during the kickoff call. Spots are limited, so register today by texting SPARKFITBUFF to 631-910-7694. This is our biggest challenge yet, and we look forward to cheering you on!

SOME MORE ABOUT AMIR

I am a graduate student at the University at Buffalo majoring in exercise science. I chose to pursue this degree because health and fitness is an important part of everyone’s life and I want to use my knowledge, skills, and experience to change peoples’ lives.

I was born and raised in Philly (yes, I’m an Eagles fan) and sports have always been a part of my life. I’ve played many sports growing up, but I chose to focus on football in college, where I played running back at Howard University. Now that I’ve hung up my cleats, it’s my job to ensure that people not only understand the importance of one’s health, but to take those necessary steps to changing your life forever.

FUN FACTS
  • Favorite food: Banana pudding
  • Favorite exercise: Squats
  • Favorite quote: “Life is difficult. The sooner you understand and accept this, the easier life will be. Because once you accept this, the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.”

Just a friendly reminder that our updated late cancel/no show fees for all classes go into effect today, September 1.

  • Late cancel fee: $5
  • No-show fee: $10

Please remember to use the Spark Fitness app’s mobile check-in feature when you arrive at the studio; this is the primary way we’ll be verifying attendance. If you happen to forget your device or don’t want to bring it inside, we now have an iPad at the front desk that you can use to check in.

Note: You can avoid late cancel/no-show fees by booking a class only once you know you can make it or cancelling no later than 6 hours ahead of the class start time. Keep in mind that there are no cutoff times for booking a class, so you can sign up at the last minute as long as there is space!
