I was so honored to be invited by Fitness Magazine to their 2013 Blogger Meet & Tweet in New York City. The experience was incredible — I got to meet many talented and knowledgeable bloggers, as well as the magazine’s editorial staff.
It was held at the Mercedes Club, an upscale fitness facility. The day included four informative presentations: “My Blog is My Business,” a panel discussion with four successful bloggers; “Healthy, Strong and Sexy in your 20s, 30s and Beyond,” with Dr. Jennifer Ashton; “Eat What You Love — and Lose Weight,” with TV chef and author Rocco DiSpirito; “Insider Beauty Secrets to Get You Glowing,” with Sarah Lucero of Stila Cosmetics; and “The Extreme Fitness Trend: Should You Try It?” with Brett Hoebel, a trainer on The Biggest Loser. After each seminar, we had a chance to ask questions of the speakers.
They were all excellent. I was probably most excited about the one featuring Rocco DiSpirito — guess I was a bit star struck! But from a professional perspective, the most helpful one, for me, was the bloggers’ panel discussion.
We also had time to visit the sponsor booths of companies such as Athleta, Reebok and Saucony; and received an amazing swag bag of products. The event ended with a choice of three workout classes: Mad Cool Fitness, a hip-hop aerobic dance; an outdoor session of yoga; or a run. Read more + see video
