With over 300 fitness studios — not counting all the gym chains — New York City is starting to rival traditionally health conscious cities like Los Angeles when it comes to fitness fever. Next week, New Yorkers will be able to score tons of deals for fitness studios and activewear at Union Square's Sweat Fest, happening Feb. 20 - 25. Hey, rolling up to your speciality gym or yoga class looking chic can get pricey, so get those promotions where you can.
The festival will kick off on Saturday with three different 45-minute classes led by The Today Show's fitness correspondent Jenna Wolfe, BeachYogaGirl Kerri Verna, and former Rockette Amanda Kloots.
Some of the vendors handing out swag and clothing discounts include Athleta, Bandier, Jack Rabbit, Lululemon and Sweaty Betty — and that's just to name a few. Roughly 50 fitness studios and gyms will be participating as well, including Physique 57, Swerve, Crunch, YMCA, Row House and Revolve.
