EMPOWERED with Miss Motivational & Dr. Rachel

Friday, November 17, 2017
6:00pm- 8:00pm
Athleta Flatiron
126 5th Avenue
New York, NY

Developed by Michele Gordon AKA Miss Motivational, Creator of Cardio Sweat Party, and Dr. Rachel Goldman, clinical psychologist specializing in health and wellness, EMPOWERED is designed to inspire you to live your life as a stronger, more powerful and healthier individual. Gone are the days of holding back. This is THE time to speak up, feel FANTASTIC, “do you”, and make a difference!

EMPOWERED is influenced by the series of “Me Too” posts on social media in October. Michele and Dr. Rachel decided things need to change and wanted to create a fun program that would bring women together, provide women with an EMPOWERing sweat, and talk about ways to practice self-care that will leave YOU feeling STRONG, POWERFUL, and CONNECTED.

This event benefits Girls on the Run. For more information or to reserve your ticket please see link below.

All you have to do is RUN! Run a 10K and FEED 10 hungry people in your hometown. For every person who runs, 10 meals are donated. In 5 years this event has raised over 5 million meals and the hope is to keep the momentum going and make an even bigger difference this year in communities around the country!
