Charity Fitness Festival | NYC October 26
Join us for our 3rd Annual Charity Fitness Festival. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an area particularly close to our hearts.

Throughout the day you can enjoy back-to-back workouts from some of today's most popular studios and highly sought after influencers & trainers. We'll also provide snacks, refreshments, workshops, activities, and so much more!
Proceeds from the event will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Should you feel inclined to donate more than the cost of your ticket, you will be prompted at check out to select an additional dollar amount of choice.

Gina DiNapoli grew up a competitive figure skater, which inspired her to pursue athletic coaching. When she moved to NYC, her dreams of becoming an Olympic figure skating coach were crushed due to the rink circumstances and incompatibility with her corporate job. Instead of coaching, she began to start taking NYC group fitness classes and found her weekly workout schedule alternated HIIT classes with kickboxing with dance classes. Gina took these 3 domains and mashed them together into a single HIIT-style training workout class, JABS. When she is not Jabbing, she is spending her time napping, Citibiking, or eating peanut butter. Jabs x Cardio Description: Cardio is a HIIT-style Dance class (with punches and kicks of course) that will show you what your max heart rate is. The entire class is performed with 2-3 lb dumbbells for arm and core toning. The class ends with a choreographed ab sequence and boxing drills.
