Sun. Dec. 16, 2 p.m.
Cardio Barre Beverly Hills, 469 S. Robertson Blvd., Beverly Hills
The holidays are often a time of friends, family, soirées…and falling off the workout and healthy eating wagon.

Plus, your toy donation will benefit Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. RSVP here to get on the exclusive guest list!
