Women's Health 2010 Are You Game? In New York City

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!
