Adidas Runbase Train & Run + IPSE [ipsə]
JOIN THE ADIDAS RUN TRIBE AS YOU TROT OUT FOR A MORNING TRAIN AND RUN SESSION. THEN YOU’RE ENERGETIC SUNDAY CONTINUES ON BY DANCING AWAY THE AFTERNOON....

FINISH: At IPSE - Vor dem Schlesischen Tor 2, 10997 Berlin.
U - BAHN: Schlesisches Tor.
THE WORKOUT: Depends what mood in you're in. For an energetic Sunday we vote for the runbase Train & Run 11am - 12pm with Andrea where you'll combine running, speed training and strength exercises in one sweaty hour. Its called Adidas Runbase for good reason. Expect this class to be busy since its one of Berlin’s best meeting points for keen runners. You’re all running together outdoors too so there’s no limitations in terms of space. Start with an easy jog and hip mobilisations to warm-up before breaking into a faster pace. Running together makes it feel like you’re part of a tribe and inspires a sense of togetherness, which we love. We also did some sprints and worked on the actual technique of running (correct arm positioning etc.), something that’s often brushed over or ignored in other group run classes we’ve joined in the past. On your return to the Runbase you’ll be feeling energised and pumped up, ready for an afternoon of dancing. Grab yourself some post work-out fuel at the cafe and then head to IPSE for a healthy dose of hedonism. If you want to take it easier then go for the Yoga & Core Strength class at 14-15pm.
THE PARTY: If you're not really into partying, don't worry you can still enjoy IPSE. Open-air partying at its best, this waterside Spree location makes it an ideal spot for laid-back weekend music and dancing. Only open during the weekend IPSE's attracts some of Berlin's best local DJs and a cool, young crowd.
THE PRICE: Adidas Runbase charges €10 for a single class or €70 for a monthly membership (its also part of the Urban Sports Club Offer). IPSE entrance fees range between €5 - €15 depending on whose playing.
BEST FOR: Extending the weekend out as long as you can!
N:B: The timetable changes between seasons so this class may not always be accurate depending on the time of year.
