It’s that time of year when people begin to feel thankful and grateful.
I am very thankful for our members who inspire me by living a healthy lifestyle. You make us a community, a family, and much more than just a gym. As the club’s Director of Special Events, I recently wrapped up a fundraising Spin-a-Thon for SIDES (Sydney’s Incredible Defeat of Ewing’s Sarcoma). Members and associates joined together raising over $20,000 in less than four weeks. The money will help a new 501(c)3 organization get off the ground. I am thankful to have a position that allows me to witness these types of actions every day at Midtown.
As we head into Thanksgiving week, I look forward to time with my family and friends. It is our goal to help make your holiday week a little less stressful and to help you stay on track by maintaining your fitness habits. Here is what we have going on this week.
The club is open 5:00 am -2:00 pm on Thanksgiving Day so you can get in your workout before the festivities.
We’re offering a three-day Holiday Mini Camp: Monday – Wednesday from 9:00 am -3:30 pm. Call Janice DeMeo in Kidtown to register.
A special Group Exercise schedule is offered Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to pick one up at the front desk.

It’s okay to be selfish when it comes to your health and give to yourself first so you can give to others even more. Make your personal fitness a priority each day to decrease stress and make for a happier holiday season.
Why not take the long weekend as an opportunity to try something new at the club? Play some tennis or do a bootcamp class with the family. Try a TRX or Crossfit class. Your body and overall health are worth the investment and your brain will thank you for mixing it up!
Finally, we encourage members to bring a toy for our Annual Toy Drive benefiting the Chris Evert Children’s Hospital. Drop it in one of our donation boxes and help bring smiles to many children this holiday season.
Thank you for your generous hearts and for being a member of Midtown Athletic Club.
