Partner moves to get you moving with Sweat Practice


Champaign, Ill. (WCIA)

Maria Ludeke, owner of Sweat Practice and Nightrain Epton, co-owner of Sweat Practice, share fun partner moves you can do to switch up your workout routine.

Sweat Practice is a virtual gym that offers personal training and live group fitness classes everyday of the week. We are an inclusive community that helps you stay motivated and accountable to your wellness goals from the comfort of your home.

The hardest exercise in the gym is showing up! Want to make it easier? Grab a partner to workout with! Showing up consistently takes accountability to either yourself, a friend, or a trainer. A study from the National Library of Medicine found that 95 percent of those who started a weight-loss program with friends completed the program.

The many reasons to workout together:

It’s more enjoyable! Seeing someone you care about makes the experience better.
You’re more likely to stick to the plan. On days you don’t want to get off the couch, your partner can help motivate you to get in gear.
You can workout virtually or in person. Reconnect with friends all over the world by taking classes online together.
Get out of your comfort zone. Try new types of workouts and create variety in your routine.

We want to offer as much individual attention and connection to our viewers as possible. By showing up at the same time on zoom, we keep each other accountable and create a strong community. It’s easier to work hard when we’re doing it together.

We currently offer 13 LIVE classes a week. We have a mix of strength training, mobility, yoga, stretching, and meditation. We seek to foster an inclusive community where everyone can feel welcome. Drop in classes are $5 and an unlimited monthly membership is $36. Free membership options available in our FITNESSforALL program. Visit our website for more details.

Your first class is FREE with code CILIVING. If you’re looking to begin training together, we have a 45 minute class called CIRCUIT HIIT on Saturdays 8-8:45am CT! The full schedule can be seen on Can’t make class? Check out our recordings on our website. We have over 150 classes available at all times.
