Celebrate World Fitness Day with Jane Fonda and Friends!
I hope everyone is having a fabulous day! I know I am!
Lately I have been running in the park and doing strengthening exercises at home to stay healthy. The last time I worked out was before my daughter was born, which was over two years ago! Yikes! That is a shame for someone you previously ran track!
Since I have been running, I am feeling good and am finally able to walk up a hill without huffing and puffing. Small accomplishment but I am excited. Considering my new found dedication to getting and remaining healthy, you can image my enthusiasm when I was invited to attend the first ever World Fitness Day hosted by Jane Fonda and a host of celebrity fitness gurus! This event will be held on May 1, 8:30 a.m at the Georgia Dome here in Atlanta, GA.
Fitness geeks will have the opportunity to participate in a group workout with Jane Fonda, Richard Simmons, Billy Banks, Denise Austin and Dr. Sanjay Gupta!
There will be a health and fitness expo starting at 8:30 am. Guests will be able to learn about healthy living from vendors while mingling with professional athletes and other celebrities. Following the expo, Dr. Sanjay Gupta will deliver opening remarks and then the workout begins!
This is sure to be a FUN and HEALTHY event. Individual tickets are $75. That may seem a little steep, however all proceeds from the sale of World Fitness Day tickets go to G-CAPP, the Georgia Campaign for Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention. As a native Atlantan, I remember when Jane Fonda started this organization in 1995. At the time the state of Georgia had the highest teen pregnancy rate in the Nation and Ms. Fonda set out to lower that statistic. This organization has helps thousands of teens in Georgia become healthy, productive, and confident teens.
You can purchase tickets for the first ever World Fitness Day here. I hope to see you there!
