We know that even though a new fitness regimen may be at the top of your resolution list, it can still take a little motivation — or a special incentive — to get moving.

Perhaps you're not ready to invest in a new program, or maybe you want to explore a new fitness venture in a judge-free zone. If that's the case Ballet Austin has the golden ticket for you this weekend.

Ballet Austin's GetFit! 2013 is a free day of fitness and exploration at the Butler Community School, taking place on Sunday, January 13 from 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.

During the afternoon, you can try a variety of fitness, dance fitness, conditioning and Pilates classes. Ballet Austin offers classes for free as a chance to forward its community mission of making "health and fitness a priority in 2013."

Classes offered during GetFit! 2013 include Intro to Pilates Machines, Pilates Mat Workout, Body Sculpting, Ballet Fit, Barre Cardio, Zumba, Bollywood Fitness and more. There's also a new Kids Zone, with special activities geared toward the youngest fit generation.

In addition to fitness classes, Ballet Austin's GetFit! event will also include healthcare screenings from Seton, BMI testing and blood pressure checks, as well as healthy snack options from Mel's Meals.

While there's no need to register in advance, Ballet Austin does suggest signing up for the event.
