Those of you who have been reading the blog for awhile know that The Shed Fitness Studio on Lyndale is one of my favorite places to work out in the Twin Cities.    The Shed offers spin, yoga, TRX and other classes (many which are held on their rooftop deck when the weather permits).  With their back to school promotion,  pay $169 for 20 classes or $99 for 10 class packs.  To purchase, go to their online store and the discount will automatically apply.  You can’t beat the price for the 20 class package!  Offer expires Aug. 25, 2014.
