Highway to Well

Hey K-Town!!! Coming May 1st we are going to be betting on you! Our 8 week "Highway to Well" health bet will begin!

K-Town Shakedown would like to invite ANYONE who is interested to participate!

What is a health bet?? Great question!

Everyone will contribute to a prize pot. At the end of the 8 week wellness challenge if you have completed all the requirements and have stayed accountable...you split the pot with everyone else that also completed the challenge! The only way to lose is to not play!

There will be weekly workout, wellness, and nutrition challenges to complete in order to maintain eligibility for prize pot. These MUST be completed according to the rules or you will be eliminated from splitting the pot.

Is this a weight loss challenge?

No. We are committing to 8 weeks of balancing our minds, bodies, and priorities. We are going to create new habits and come together as a STRONG, SUPPORTIVE, community!

Every journey is unique, and every BODY is beautiful. We have learned that great happiness and success is always better when shared and celebrated. We need to start seeing ourselves as more than a body, more than a number, more than a pant size. We are SO much more!! The true measure of a person won't be found on a scale.

When can I sign-up?

April 1 – 30, 2017

What is the cost?


What am I getting?

Receive weekly motivation, recipes, workouts and support. Each participant will receive two professional photographs done by local photographer Kirstina Leonard. $20 will be placed directly into the prize pool for every participating member. Participants COMPLETING the challenge will receive #iammore t-shirts.

We are sincere in our mission of making fitness accessible to all and would like your personal financial situation and generosity to be your guide. We also believe we are providing a superior product. As a starting point we suggest a $5 per class donation.

We Believe…

K-Town Shakedown was founded on the belief that fitness and health is for everyone. We provide certified instructor led classes in a safe, non-intimidating environment.

Whether you are just beginning your journey into fitness or are well on your way, we want to build relationships and offer quality fitness classes to help you achieve your best version of you!

We want to challenge you to consider what your health is worth?

Our Instructors

Our philosophy for donation based fitness comes with the added benefit that our instructors don't work for KTown Shakedown. They work for you. Each instructor is their own boss and has the freedom to build their class to serve your best interests. This means our instructors are paid by you. Be sure to bring your donation for each individual class, so the instructor is paid for their hard work. Instructors give 30% of their earnings to help pay for the costs of the studio. Please be generous!
