Sports Weekend Celebrates Its Birthday with Open-Air Workouts at VDNH

6 august 2021

8 August 2021 marks the first anniversary of the Sports Weekend project. Over the course of this year, the project has completed four action-packed seasons, and many people have grown to love training with professional coaches free of charge. In honour of this wonderful milestone, the Northern Loop of VDNH will host a functional workout session at 2 p.m. All participants will receive Sports Weekend-themed souvenirs and gifts. Advance registration is required.

In addition, an online training session with a special guest star—Russian actress and TV presenter Nadezhda Sysoeva—awaits everyone who's interested on Sunday, 8 August, at 10:00 a.m.

The street stretching, yoga, dance mix and functional training classes will take place at VDNH as scheduled. The classes will be completely COVID-free. Only those with a QR code will be eligible to join. This temporary restriction is meant to ensure the visitors' safety.

Sports Weekend is a popular seasonal project organised by the Moscow Department of Sport and Tourism and the My Documents public service centres, active since 2020. Due to the pandemic-related complications, the previous two seasons took place online: sports enthusiasts worked out with professional coaches by watching them on YouTube or having individual Zoom sessions. The fourth season (summer of 2021) combines online sessions and offline workouts in 15 parks around Moscow, including VDNH. Participation in the project is free.

We would like to remind everyone that the fourth season of the Sports Weekend project will last until 10 October. Training sessions are aimed at people of any skill level, helping them maintain good physical shape and improve their emotional state. We recommend wearing comfortable workout clothes and bringing the necessary equipment. To attend the classes, you need to sign up on the project website or in any Moscow office of My Documents. The number of participants is limited.
