Need to de-stress? It’s time to move and get fit in downtown Detroit. Propel, a fitness drink brand, collaborated with actor and director Michael B. Jordan to bring Propel Your City Project coming this August and September, 2023 .

This fitness initiative is designed to bring fitness events to local cities across America. This year, they are coming to Detroit and three other cities: Atlanta, Houston, and Los Angeles, in an effort to support “organizations and their founders who are already addressing barriers to wellness in their communities,” according to their press release.

These free classes are designed to help you get out there and make a move in downtown Detroit. Here are three of the events that are sponsoring local organizations.
