Fit Fam Fashion

By Sarah Huntington

What are the keys to living your best life? Health, wellness, fitness, Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs — and a little champagne! Living a healthy lifestyle is part of having a healthy body, but more importantly having a healthy mind. And who better to support you than your fam?

Family doesn’t have to be blood related, they don’t have to have given birth to you, or have the same DNA. Family are those people that stick by you on your worst – and best – days. Family can be the people you sweat with at 5am, and the people you share a beer with after a tough day, they can be the people who have you over when your real parents are halfway around the world, or the people you see every day at the gym. They are there when it feels like you are stuck, cheering you on.

We are lucky here at The Sweat Life to have created a FIT FAMILY — people who are bound together for a cause, to make NYC a healthier, even more kickass city than it already is. We are here for each other cheering each other on every step of the way, so why not spell it our on our sleeve — or our shirt?
