Kids are heading back to school and the temperatures are beginning to dip a bit, so many of us are also returning to the gym that we abandoned to exercise outdoors during the summer. We discovered a neat program through DavidBartonGym (DBG), happening every Thursday in August, that may inspire you to hop back on the indoor workout wagon.

DBG’s Block Party events at any of their gym locations in New York, Miami, Seattle and Chicago are open to members and non-members, and include gratis specialty cocktails as well as accessories from Superdry, hair care products from black15and1 and other awesome freebies. But the best part? If you purchase training sessions at the Block Party, that becomes your enrollment fee for the month of September—meaning you pay nothing for next month to train at DBG beyond those sessions! Talk about an incentive.

The last Block Parties takes place tomorrow from 6-8 p.m., but if you can’t make it, you can still have a little party at your own home with this cocktail that bartenders will be whipping up at DBG.

Svedka Citron’s Naked_Bot

  • 1.5 ounces Svedka Citron
  • 2 cucumber slices
  • 1 sprig mint
  • coconut water

Place cucumber slices in bottom of the glass (do not muddle). Fill with ice. Add Svedka and fill with coconut water. Garnish with mint.

Now tell us: If you belong to a gym, do you do so year-round or just during the colder weather months?
