Scene and Heard: Outtakes from BodyRock! 2018

Anything is possible in Pittsburgh. And at Fame15 Creative, we’ve made our vision for fitness a reality with BodyRock! For three consecutive years, BodyRock! has fused fitness with music. The result: an unforgettable event.


BodyRock! 2018 was our best year yet. For one afternoon, fitness, community and fun took center stage at Pittsburgh’s StageAE. Award-winning instructors in indoor cycling, climbing, boxing and more, taught high-energy, pop-up style classes to an enthusiastic crowd. And when attendees weren’t sweating, they enjoyed free samples and makeovers from vendors in beauty, fashion and healthy eating.

This year, we took it to the next level, kicking off BodyRock! with a 3-part series of pop-up spinning classes. On three different nights, rides were held at CycleBar North Hills, Steel Revolution and Zenergy Cycling, with 100% of proceeds benefitting Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Greater Pittsburgh. The response from the public was tremendous – another reminder of the generosity of spirit found here in our city. Along with instructors from each cycling studio, we couldn’t have been more excited to take the stage at StageAE and present BBBS with checks to support their mission.

Zenergy's donation of $2,550

Steel Revolution's donation of $1,000

CycleBar North Hills' donation of $750

But most of all, our attendees made it all worthwhile. After a long Pittsburgh winter, they brought a much-needed dose of energy and joy to BodyRock!, making it another unbelievable event. Catch a glimpse of them in action and hear what they have to say. We’ll see you at StageAE next year!

This year was my first experience of BodyRock! I think it’s great to see so many different people here working out, because people who work out together stay together. This is a wonderful way to kick start your week, the Spring season, and to be part of a community that care about self-care. I’ll be back next year! – Mahogany Jackson
