Legs were shaking and arms were sore, but there were smiles all around after the first CaptainV Room fitness event sponsored by That’s PRD


On March 11, readers showed up from across the PRD to lift, lunge, squat and flex their way through an intense hour of Body Pump. Trainers Lawrence and BM guided the class through a demanding set of exercises that worked nearly every muscle of the body. Some were ready to give up when the body screamed for mercy, but with their encouragement (and the pumping beats of pop queens like Rihanna) everyone conquered the challenge and pushed through.


Catering by Maik’s Gourmet was the perfect cure for the exhaustion that followed. If some where unexpected (who makes a bowl out of a watermelon cube?) they were all delicious.


The event was the first team up between That’s PRD and the fitness center, bringing together sponsors like Maik’s Gourmet and SZUMMER PRIDE, supporting the LGBTQI community of Shenzhen and beyond. Pride kicks off with a beach party in June and, even if every body is beautiful just as it is, the boys were ready to pump it up to be just a little more beautiful for the half-naked parties ahead.

Check out some photos of the event below and keep checking our site for announcements of future events.
