Fitness Meets High Fashion at New York Sports Clubs

“New York Sports Clubs the largest owner and operator of health and fitness clubs in the tri-state area, in partnership with Nolcha, an organization that supports, promotes and educates emerging fashion talent from around the globe, will offer an exclusive, invite-only look at how Nolcha Fashion Week’s models achieve the confidence to strut the runway. New York Sports Clubs’ Dr. Emily Splichal, podiatrist, creator and lead instructor of the Catwalk Confidence fitness series, will lead a select group of models, editors and fashion elite in her renowned Catwalk Confidence class on August 27, 2009 at New York Sports Clubs’ 59th and Park location on 502 Park Ave.The NYSC Catwalk Confidence exclusive preview will occur at the height of model casting for fashion week, providing a glimpse into the skills and composure needed to grace New York’s runways. Designed to help women walk comfortably and confidently in even the highest heels, the Catwalk Confidence class focuses on body alignment, core strengthening, isometrics and stabilization techniques to help stiletto lovers build proper posture, strength and balance. The class culminates in a choreographed ‘walk-off’ where participants are encouraged to don their highest heels and take to the catwalk with their newfound confidence. ‘As the fashion industry continues to push heels higher and higher, women try to rise to the challenge regardless of aches and pains,’ said Dr. Splichal. ‘Catwalk Confidence was designed to give women the strength and stability to wear their favorite designer heels pain-free, whether on the runway or the city sidewalks. It’s the power to not only look good, but also feel great doing it – a concept that New York Sports Clubs and Nolcha Fashion Week have both embraced.’”
