With the rise of boutique fitness, and the fact that everyone wants to get into the health and wellness space right now — including luxury fashion brands — there is often a misperception that getting healthy is only for the wealthy. However, this is not the case at all. In fact, as health and fitness becomes more and more popularized, there are more options than ever, at every price point, to get fit and get healthy — and also look great while you’re doing it.
I am a believer that if you have a body that can move, you can get in shape - you just have to get moving! Whether you forego the elevator for the stairs, start going for a daily walk around your neighborhood or somewhere that makes you happy, head out for a run at a local path, trail, or track, or even easier, start utilizing your home as a working gym (which requires no equipment!), all you have to do is get going.
However, I also know that finding the motivation to get moving can be really tough – especially if you are doing it for the first time. Luckily, there are countless options for free and on-demand workouts from amazing trainers that anyone with a computer or smartphone can access (and if you’re reading this, I am guessing you qualify!). So if your New Year’s resolution is to get back in shape, or in better shape - no matter what your budget is or how little time you have, we’ve got an amazing option for you (with built in motivation)!
This January, we are partnering with Target and C9 Champion to Commit to Fit. Commit to Fit is a 21-day workout plan that includes 5 videos by the Target and C9 Champion Brand Ambassadors and fitness experts Adam Rosante and Idalis Velazquez. The videos are no longer than 15 minutes each, can be done right in your home, and require little to no equipment. So, I’m sorry to break it to you, but Target has taken away your excuse that getting fit is either exclusive or expensive, as they are now making it easier than ever!
Even better, Target is also making it easier and more affordable than ever to rock some stylish and high-performance workout digs - that look and feel great - with their exclusive C9 Champion line, sold only at Target. And it's not just for women; they offer Men’s apparel, Kids’ apparel, shoes, and sporting goods. Additionally, they even carry Plus, Maternity, and Men’s Big and Tall in C9 Champion online. So the options are endless!
So grab some C9 Champion gear and join us in this awesome 21-day program! And of course make sure to share your sweat sessions: Tag @sweatlife_nyc and @Target, and use the hashtags #CommitToFit and #C9atTarget.
We can’t wait to see your progress!
The C9 Champion collection, shown here on Sweat Life founder Aly Teich, is exclusively available at Target store locations and Target online.
