Zudio is celebrating its second anniversary and the start of its fall session with an open house event on September 16, from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. If you’ve been curious about any of the classes offered at Vankleek Hill’s iconic fitness and wellness studio, this is your chance to try them! The event will feature free classes and presentations running throughout the day in all 4 rooms. Organizers hope to be ready to present their new Zudio Air aerial offerings (bungee fitness and aerial yoga) in time for the event.

It was recently announced that Zudio, which was founded by Zumba instructor Louise Stephenson and her husband, DC Comics artist Dale Eaglesham, has been selected as a significant local event to be featured on a new town mural. During the open house, there will be a photo shoot at 1 p.m., to provide the artists of the new mural with material for the Zudio portion of the patchwork.

The day will also feature a BBQ organized by the Primal CF team. The event will also serve as a fundraiser for the Vankleek Hill Food Bank, giving back to the community that has been so supportive of the studio over the past two years.

Lastly, there will be special offers for the fall session, for people who missed registration, as well as great door prizes! The event is open to all ages!

Zudio first opened its doors two years ago, on September 12, 2016. In its first year, only the main floor, now dubbed Zudio A, was in operation. The main room is known for its striking mural, painted by Dale Eaglesham. The room welcomes Zumba celebrities from all around the world for instructor trainings and special events. For the studio’s first anniversary, last September, the basement was renovated and launched as Zudio B. The room features mirrors, rubber floors and soundproofing, and is used mainly for kids’ classes. Last winter, a treatment room was added, for rentals by wellness and healthcare practitioners. Finally, last spring, the warehouse was transformed into a cross-training facility where the Primal CF group of instructors provides cross-training classes.

New this fall: Kids’ birthday parties, bachelorettes, rentals for special events (such as the Miraculum show by Majinx on October 20), and new classes such as bungee workout, aerial yoga, 90-Day Transformation, Stand UP, and Pound Generation.
