|On Saturday September 18, Women's Health magazine's Are You Game? event took place on Hudson Pier 46 in NYC (again!) Last year I had a blast and this year I expected nothing less. :) Of course, I had a great time and even saw two friends there too.|
How did this compare to last year's?
There were a few changes in terms of its format...
- Pricing: It was FREE last year and this year they charged $10 per person. It was free for College students though, so glad that Women's Health is supporting college kids!
- Exercise Classes: Similar to the SELF workout in the Park event, classes were first come first serve b/c they gave out wrist bands. They also had two stages- a mat workout & a main stage workout for anyone to join. Last year- you just had to wait in line.. so this was a plus!
- Makeovers: This year's tent had several lines and a variety of beauty makeovers including manicures, dry hair styling, lip gloss touch-ups and make up touch-ups. Last year, it was just make-up.
- Fun/Games: Last year there was a bungy jumping thing and this year they had a mechanical bull & simulated kayak ride.
|- Freebies: This year they gave free yoga mats to the first 1,300 participants and tote bags. Last year, they gave away a different item for each exercise class.|
Instead of taking an exercise class, I spent time engaging with the sponsors and learning what they had to offer. My favorite was learning how to swing a golf club from a Pro.
Can't wait for next year's event!
