Get Fit Obsessed:
Karina Smirnoff was ready to help all of us make good on our New Year’s resolution to get healthy! The ‘Dancing with the Stars‘ pro hosted JC Penney’s New Year, New You event at JC Penney’s SoHo showroom. Guests got to take dance classes so they could learn new moves while burning up some calories. Karina was looking great in JCPenney’s exclusive Xersion and CityStreet Activewear lines. She said:
I’m excited to partner with JCPenney to showcase ways to feel great from the inside out. These clothes are comfortable, super cute and sexy, and fit the body in all the right places. It’s great that JCPenney has such a wide selection for every fitness level. I want a set in every color.”
So do I: I’m loving Karina’s workout gear! Another ‘Dancing with the Stars’ pro, Henry Byalikov, was also there to teach the participants some salsa moves. Celebrity nutritionist and chef Melissa Petitto was also onsite creating delicious and healthy juices and smoothies with JCPenney’s national brand juicers to quench peoples’ thirst.
Juicing has grown in popularity and I wanted to share some of my tips and favorite recipes today. JCPenney has trusted brands from Jack LaLanne’s Power Juicer to the Magic Bullet Blender. These juicers and blenders fit the family’s healthy lifestyle and budget.”
Juicing is great. If you don’t do it, you should try it. Karina even got in on the fun and collaborated with Melissa to create one of the signature drinks, Karina’s Double D, a refreshing mixture of carrots, ginger, fennel, apple, carrots, and mint. Karina noted:
Listen to your body. When you put good nutrients in you’ll feel amazing overall.”
When asked about Season 18 of ‘DWTS,’ Karina was tight-lipped about details and mentioned that the announcements would still be a few weeks away.
I haven’t heard anything yet so I am just as anxious and excited as everyone else!” When asked who would be her ultimate dancing partner, dead or alive, she said, “Michael Jackson.” His talent and dancing was amazing and it would have been an honor and a treat to dance with him.”
THAT would have been interesting. Are you looking forward to the upcoming season of ‘Dancing with the Stars’?
