You don’t have to head to an indoor gym to get a workout. And you don’t have to turn on the TV to get a dose of reality television.

Just head downtown Saturday and you’ll get a lesson in turning your city into a fitness center, compliments of celebrity trainer Erin Oprea, and stars of the 11th season of “The Bachelorette” Shawn Booth and Kaitlyn Bristowe.

The interactive Citystrong event begins at 11 a.m. on the terrace at The Long Center, 701 West Riverside Drive. Oprea and Booth will lead a workout while Bristowe provides commentary and spins the latest hits.

Booth is personal trainer, boot camp instructor and founder and owner of Healthy Meal Plans by Shawn Booth. Oprea is celebrity personal trainer whose clients include Carrie Underwood, and author of “4×4 Diet: 4 Key Foods, 4-Minute Workouts, Four Weeks to the Body You Want.”

Admission is $40. To register, go to citystrong.com. A portion of proceeds will benefit CreatiVets, which helps disabled veterans use art, music and creative writing to address service-related traumas. Bring your own exercise mat.
