Fitness Magazine Marks 20 Years with Free-For-All Celebration

Fitness is celebrating two decades on the newsstand in style! The New York-based wellness magazine is launching its first-ever free-for-all May 1, teaming with several gyms nationwide. Loyal readers will get a one-day, free workout at any of these facilities including: Bally Total Fitness, Crunch, Gold’s Gym, New York Sports Clubs, 24 Hour Fitness, and select YMCA locations.

Along with free access to gyms across the country, Fitness is also hosting five V.I.P. workout events with celebrity trainers Jackie Warner, Harley Pasternak, Billy Blanks, Jim Karas and Beto Perez.  The trainers will be teaching exclusive classes for Fitness readers who respond to calls to action via Facebook and Twitter.

“We’re so excited to be turning 20! To thank our amazing readers for their continued support and commitment to fitness—their own as well as the magazine—over the last two decades, we couldn’t think of a better way than to offer them a free day at the gym and a chance to workout with some of the best trainers in the business,” says Fitness editor-in-chief, Betty Wong.

There are more details about participating gyms and how to download a free pass on the Fitness website.
