The Spark This Day story
Spark This Day was founded by a burnt out professional.
Together, we aim to co-create a world where burnout is the exception, not the norm.
CEO & Founder, Gabby Lubin, taught the first Spark class on March 16, 2020 as Washington, D.C. headed into lockdown. 50 wonderful humans moved through a HIIT workout that finished with a mindful moment, the first Spark Method mindful fitness Class. Together, a Spark was ignited and spark by gabby was born. Gabby began to innovate; she incorporated mindfulness, fitness, and social justice into a digital platform.
From March 2020 - August 2021, Spark served stressed out humans through mindful fitness.
From September 2021 - April 2022, Spark partnered with schools to support educator wellness.
From May 2022 - May 2023, Spark This Day went deeper into workplace burnout by using anonymous employee data to move companies to become People-First. Spark did this by matching employee workload and stress levels to wellness programing and in turn anonymously sharing how burnt out or balanced staff felt with People leaders. In essence, Spark This Day was the first to accurately measure wellbeing in a fun, reflective way to benefit both the employee and employer.
Now, Spark This Day has returned to its original function: a mindful fitness platform teaching The Spark Method. Take a look at classes here.
