Event alert: SELF Workout in the Park

What: An event revolving around health and fitness, with a variety of classes that span from yoga and ballet-inspired to cardio boxing and rebounding, and many things in between. The event is sponsored by SELF magazine and when it started it was the first ever event of its kind. This is its 16th edition.

There will probably be a famous guest trainer or two (last year it was Jillian Michaels) plus several others from the area.

- free full-size samples of products, including makeup, healthy snacks (almonds, protein bars, isotonic drink), makeup and miscellaneous products;
- mini-makeovers at the Maybelline beauty booth
- a complementary hair consultation and style touch-up with a stylist at the GarniƩr booth
- hula hoop lessons (yeah, I know)
- and of course giveaways!

Where & When: this year SELF Workout in the Park will travel to San Diego, New York City and Chicago.

If you like, you can also RSVP on Facebook, just for fun!

*Note: tickets to the Chicago and San Diego events will be on sale at the door (cash only), however for the NYC events tickets are only being sold online – if you had seen the mess of people and the two HUGE lines at the entrance of last year's event, you'd know why. And you'd say "Halleluja!" or something to that effect.
