Girlfriends Talk Sports, led by NBA mom and Downtowner Karen Frye, have never been busier.
They blog, they tweet, they cheer and, of course, they talk. And now, they are ready to share a new endeavor that is sure to get your heart pumping. Literally.
Girlfriends Talk Sports, Gold’s Gym, Par Exsalonce, The Arrogant Butcher, RED Development and Downtown Phoenix Partnership are partnering to bring the inaugural Sports in the City event to CityScape in celebration of Women’s Health Week.
On Friday, May 18, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., CityScape will transform from an indoor/outdoor entertainment district into a FREE fitness extravaganza. Experts from across Arizona are turning up to show their support and help educate everyone on women’s health and fitness.
There will be Zumba and yoga classes throughout the day, and GTS friend Michelle Rosado from FacetoFace Entertainment will teach women a thing or two about boxing. The defending National League West Champion Arizona Diamondbacks will teach women all about baseball, while the Arizona Cardinals Cheerleaders will be holding a brief dance seminar followed by a calendar signing. The Phoenix Mercury Hip Hop Squad will also be on hand.
The Arizona Department of Health Services will run a variety of free health screenings–blood pressure checks, Body Mass Indexing, plus breast and skin cancer prevention tips–and The Arrogant Butcher will be holding a healthy cooking seminar. Par Exsalonce will be freshening everyone up after a tough workout, performing mani-pedis, hair washes and blowouts.
There will be food, drinks and, most importantly, plenty of fun and exciting activities for everyone (including you fellas) to participate in.
Best of all, it’s all FREE.
