This month, lots of New Yorkers will be getting sweaty before and after picking up their greens and apples at the farmers market.

From February 24 to March 2, the Union Square Partnership (USP) is hosting the first-ever Union Square Sweat Fest, a week-long health and fitness festival with free workouts, giveaways, and discounts to studios located in the sweaty neighborhood.

“Union Square is the epicenter of the city’s health and wellness scene with its innovative fitness studios, retailers with the best exercise gear, and delicious healthy eateries,” says USP executive director Jennifer Falk. “The Union Square Partnership created Union Square Sweat Fest so that people could sample the area’s offerings at little or no cost.”

While the event includes free classes at hot studios like Brick New York, The Movement, and Tone House, the 600 passes that offer access to those sold out almost immediately. (How’s that for fitness enthusiasm?)

If you didn’t get a pass and want to get in on the action, USP will be posting additional deals and activities open to the public on the Sweat Fest website on the 24th. With this kind of turn-out, maybe they’ll make it two weeks long next year? —Jamie McKillop
