Answers to our most frequently asked questions.
WHAT IS FITFAM?
FitFam is a non-profit, volunteer-led fitness community that thrives on the commitment of each person leading and/or attending a session, which consequently allows us to provide free and consistent access to quality fitness, wellness and an overall active lifestyle.
IS FITFAM REALLY FREE?
Yes it is! Everything is purely volunteer-led, which helps us make all sessions 100% free. All you need to do is register for your preferred location and show up! Exceptions include one-time special events in which case you will be notified of the cost in advance prior to registration.
DO I NEED TO MEET CERTAIN PHYSICAL STANDARDS TO ATTEND A SESSION?
Although we embrace inclusiveness, we ask that you be aware of your own general health and physical capabilities. We suggest you either check your most recent physical exam or consult with your doctor to make sure you're in the clear. All workouts are designed to be safe, inclusive and challenging for all levels, with or without prior experience.
WHAT EXERCISES DO YOU TYPICALLY DO?
A lot of our sessions feature High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) workouts using nothing but your own bodyweight - think pushups, squats, burpees, lunges and the like. Other types of sessions offered in Shanghai include running (urban and track), yoga and fitness boxing. You can find more information about it by visiting our Trainings page.
HOW DO I REGISTER FOR A FITFAM SESSION?
If you are based in Shanghai or Beijing, you will need to register for all our sessions via our technology partner Eventbank where all registration links are uploaded.
