United We Sweat… Let’s get moving Lorain County! 

United We Sweat was formed to promote healthy living in Greater Lorain County by raising awareness on the types of fitness and nutrition options available. The collaboration aims to ensure that everyone in Lorain County has access to quality physical activities no matter their location, age or skill level.

Every month there will be new fitness classes and events to get us moving in Lorain County! So check back often to discover upcoming ways to get fit. You deserve to live healthy—let’s get moving together! 

All classes and events are free and open to the public! However, to support United Way of Greater Lorain County donations will be graciously accepted at all class locations. Discover a session near you with our interactive map.
