Our Monthly Donation Classes

Castle Hill Fitness Monthly Donation Classes

Supporting a New Charity Every Month

We’ve always considered Castle Hill Fitness to be more than just a gym. We strive to foster a community that celebrates a person’s individual journey towards a higher quality of life. We value the health of our overall community – beyond just our fitness family – as much as each individual’s! To that end, every month, Castle Hill Fitness hosts donation classes in support of a rotating charity

On the 22nd of every month, our weekly class schedule will feature various live-stream and in-person donation-based classes. This way, you can get your workout on AND support an organization striving for positive change, all in one fell swoop! Since June, 2020, we have successfully raised funds to support these chosen charities every month, thanks to YOUR help.
