Get Into Summertime Shape At W Hotel's First-Ever 'Fit Fest'
Whether you're a man or woman, getting summertime fine takes some time and time in itself is hard to come by. Thankfully Summer has yet to make a consistent appearance (on the East coast, at least) and the W Hotel wants to help you make the most out of the time you do have.
The luxurious hotel chain's New York City location is partnering up with the Fit Factory NYC and Pace For Success for the first ever 2016 Fit Fest. The 2-day event packed weekend kicks off on Friday, June 3rd and will feature a slew of calorie-burning activities including Inner Rebel Yoga, an Agility Run along the West Side Highway and Boxing.
Although the "W Fit Fest Crash with Us Package" (at $299) features access to every class and a solid swag bag, a one-night stay at NYC's W New York – Downtown lets you work hard and rest hard after it's all said and done. If it turns out the package price is deal breaker, the super-active event allows classes to be purchased a la carte.
Scroll below to see some of the classes offered as well as what the fun-filled weekend has in store. See the full list over at WNewYorkDowntown.com/FitFest.
