'Gym Now and Wine Later' is an event hosted every month at the LIFT gym Rib Mountain location. The event is usually held on Wednesday.

However this month the organization said they wanted to switch it up a little bit so this time they held the event on Saturday.

"It’s a great way for people to meet each other and motivate them to participate in fitness related activities and get them in the gym." Brook Haakenson said in a statement to NewsChannel 7.

It works like this: first you do two different group fitness classes, such as spin classes, boot camp, yoga, zumba.. etc. The group then gets rewarded for their participation by heading over to the New Hilton Garden Inn to have wine and hors' d oevres.
