GETfit, the national event series that brings together people seeking fitness guidance with fitness professionals, held its second event New York City event Sunday, April 18th at the Adidas Sport Performance Store. An even greater success than the first NYC installment in January, a team of about 30 local fitness professionals - nutritionists and trainers - gave the upwards of 1,000 attendees all the personal guidance they need to get fit, for free.
Nutritionist and bestselling author (“Your Inner Skinny” and the newly launched “Slim and Scrumptious”) Joy Bauer returned to headline the event for the second time in a row; nutritionist and creator of The F-Factor Diet Tanya Zuckerbrot, M.S. R.D. co-headlined and spoke for the first time; and celebrity trainer Jeff Halevy, who conceptualized and implemented GETfit, were all on hand, along with representatives from prestigious fit lifestyle brands including Adidas, Flywheel Sports, vitaminwater, Pirate Brands (makers of Pirate’s Booty), PopChips, VitaCoco and ISAGENIX to serve as a live, in-person “fitness hotline” for event-goers.
“GETfit is a fabulous event and a wonderful opportunity to interact with New Yorkers who are passionate about being healthy. This was my second time there and it becomes more fun with each installment,” says Joy Bauer.
