Total Gym Southampton Sweat Event Recap

Southampton was alive with a fitness vibe on Sunday, August 5th at the Southampton Arts Center. This year the event was hosted by the stunning Christie Brinkley and her beautiful daughter Sailor Brinkley-Cook. They rocked the show by showing their love and enthusiasm for health, fitness, and wellness by bringing together an energetic crowed to sweat together and experience what full body health is all about.


People of all ages and fitness levels filled the event to learn, experience, and of course sweat. The energy was contagious as the music beats led participants through various trending workouts on the art lawn. The classes were taught by various trainers of a particular expertise so that participants could experience various types of workout. The sun’s heat was strong, but it didn’t stop those in motion. In fact, it made the Sweat Fitness event hold to its name… sweaty!


In addition to the incredible workouts, many local and New York City vendors participated to showcase their studios, programs, products, new fitness modalities, and sample trending equipment. The Total Gym FIT model was part of the show and was a huge hit to demonstrate the versatility and effectiveness of the equipment.

This was the first appearance for the Total Gym FIT model to appear in a fitness expo setting. Typically, it’s showcased online, on TV, or via the famous infomercials. Total Gym is making the shift to bring this model to more people in today’s modern world. It’s apparent that it’s a special piece of fitness equipment for the home user and also for apartment complexes, boutique studios, and work settings. The ease of the exercises along with the quick transitions into multiple movements make the Total Gym award-winning to accomplish an effective workout in minimal time to reach specific goals.


The set up started bright and early with the sun’s rays beaming down. Mark and I were the proud Total Gym trainers representing at the event. We set up and arranged two FIT units while we jammed to the bumpin’ beats pumping from the sound stage. The Sweat event was titled right- because it was one hot sweaty mess for all!

The energy was contagious as fitness was in the air! Attendees arrived at 9 AM to either take part in the first class held on the lawn or to browse through the participating vendors. Mark and I demonstrated, educated, explained, and led non-stop sessions for attendees to experience the magic on the equipment.

The Total Gym FIT units caught the eyes of many. There was a high demand to experience a mini workout and understand how it worked. Attendees lined up to give it a go and wanted to keep going! I knew once someone experienced a few exercises on the FIT unit, they would absolutely love it and want more of it!

The event wouldn’t have been the same without the special appearance of Christie and her daughter Sailor. They arrived to the event around 11AM looking stellar and fit as ever. Everyone was thrilled to witness their radiance and ongoing support for promoting a healthy lifestyle.

Christie and Sailor spent time with us at the Total Gym booth by sharing their love for the equipment to others. Christie mentioned how she loves the versatility, comfort, ease, and effectiveness that the Total Gym provides. Sailor is a follower of her mother’s footsteps and is also sporty, fit, and full of energy. It’s clear that exercise along with a healthy lifestyle work towards the longevity of a healthy life. These dynamic stars are living proof!

Mark and I were proud to share our expertise and love for such a diverse piece of fitness equipment. This event opened the eyes to many people who had never seen or had the chance to experience what the Total Gym is all about. It was wonderful to see the enjoyment in first time users on the equipment and hear the positive feedback in how they loved the feel of the movements.

The Total Gym is truly one of the best fitness tools for home users, apartment gyms, and even the work environment to effectively train hard in minimal time. Once you learn how to accommodate the exercises for your goals, it becomes the one stop tool you can integrate into all fitness modalities. In today’s modern world of busy lives, it’s about convenience and effectiveness to get the job done.


There’s no doubt this one day Sweat Fitness event was a hot hit to open the gateway to promoting fitness and wellness. Special thanks to Christie and Sailor for hosting such a successful event and having Total Gym be a part of the magic. We look forward to attending other events so that more people can experience the effectiveness of the Total Gym and spread the word that it can be in your home too!

  1. I’m sorry I missed this. I had no idea it was going on. I have been nursing a torn front rotator cuff since April. Orthopedic said it couldn’t be reliably repaired through surgery. Physical therapy has been a tremendous help but I knew I needed to do something long term to strengthen the surrounding muscles. My total gym arrived today and I am thrilled with it. I can do all the exercises my physical therapist puts me through with ease. I am glad I pulled the trigger on this. I have wanted one for a long time.
