Dancing with the Stars Karina Smirnoff hosted JCPenney’s New Year, New You Fitness Event at the JCPenney’s showroom in SoHo. Decked out in JCPenny’s Xersion and CityStreets Activewear lines, Karina led dance aerobic classes that had our heart pumping and muscles screaming. As Smirnoff yelled positive affirmations to keep our spirits high and prevent us from slacking in the last set of workout rotations, I noticed that pieces provided didn’t bunch up with every high kick or fall down with every near floor position.Karina-Smirnoff-and-her-class-wear-Xersion-Activewear-after-their-danceclass-at-JCPenneys-New-Year-New-You-Fitness-Event-in-SoHo

And far off in the corner serving up healthy drink options was Celebrity Chef and R.D. Melissa Petitto. Using JCPenney’s Bella High Power Juice Extractor and Magic Bullet Blender, Petitto designed a few high octane specials that refueled our system and acted as delicious after workout snack. Karina and Melissa even collaborated to create a signature drink coined “Double D’s”. Pumped with carrots, ginger, fennel, apple, and mint, it was sweet with a refreshing aftertaste from the mint.

“These clothes are comfortable, super cute and sexy, and fit the body in all the right places, continues Karina. It’s great that JCPenney has such a wide selection from activewear to healthy home items to keep the entire family feeling fit and healthy in the new year,” said Karina Smirnoff.
