We Tried a Never Give Up Manayunk Virtual Workout for BWP Underground

This virtual sweat sesh may have been kid-friendly, but it was still incredibly tough.

We had an amazing virtual kid-friendly workout for Mother’s Day, led by Ali Cook Jackson of Never Give Up Manayunk.

Hey, friends. We can’t believe we’re almost through May already! We know times are still pretty confusing right now, so we’re doing our best to keep coming together, moving our bodies, and celebrating community however we can.

That’s why, in honor of Mother’s Day earlier this month, we decided to dedicate this virtual BWP Underground to all the amazing moms out there, with a fun and sweaty  “Quaranteeny” workout led by Ali Cook Jackson, owner of Never Give Up Training.

First we had a Q&A with Ali Cook Jackson about health and wellness routines, and what inspired her to found Never Give Up. Then we all did a high-energy, kid-friendly 30-minute workout class featuring bodyweight exercises and weighted exercises.  (The kids may not have listened 80% of the time, but we all had a good laugh and man did we put in work.)

Ali Cook Jackson guided us through a heart-pumping workout, with plenty of animal poses to keep the kids occupied. It was light-hearted and silly, but a tough workout — and most of all, it was a lot of fun!
