I know this is crazy two posts in one day but summer is coming and that means it’s time for the annual SELF Workout in the Park! I was lucky enough to attend SELF magazine’s Workout in the Park back in 2010, sadly I was not in town last year but I can’t wait to go again this year! I met some amazing people when I went the last time and I am really looking forward to this year.
This is SELF magazine’s 19th Annual Workout in the Park event. It takes place on Saturday, May 12, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Rumsey Playfield in New York. It will happen rain or shine! SELF Workout in the Park features a full day of hands-on workouts and workshops. You can also enjoy a sampling of healthy and delicious foods, indulge in mini-spa services, demo the latest beauty and fitness products and score lots of free samples and goodies courtesy of SELF’s sponsors. This year the workout in the park will be hosted by Dolvett Quince, celebrity trainer on The Biggest Loser. Workouts are provided and led by Crunch and this year there is even a Reebok Zone where you can do a Crossfit WOD. Some of the workouts they will have this year are: Ab Attack, Fly Girls, Sucker Punch, and Tabura. To see the entire class schedule click here.
Tickets for the event are $20 but it includes a one-year subscription to SELF magazine. You can not purchase tickets on site so you must buy them online ahead of time. So grab some girlfriends and come to Central Park to check out this fun event, I will be there (most likely in hot pink).
I am excited to announce that one Shape Up NYC reader can win a SELF Fit Kit (valued at $200) and a pass to the SELF Workout in the Park! Inside the FIt kit you will find: SELF magazines, ear buds, an official WIP water bottle, fitness DVDs, month-long membership to Crunch and many more promotional items from sponsors like Garnier, Calvin Klein, Luna, La Roche-Posay, and lucy). One of my favorite things is the tote bag from lucy.
