Megan Hilty traded in the glamorous clothes she wears on NBC’s “Smash” to host a unique “fitness gala” on Feb. 2. According to a Feb. 3 Wall Street Journal report, attendees were instructed to come in their workout clothes and be prepared to sweat.
Hilty hosted the event, called the Kettleball Kickboxing Fitness Gala, with her friend and trainer Dasha Libin. The gala was to raise money for the Joyful Heart foundation, which was founded by Mariska Hargitay to help victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and other abuse.
Libin is the creator of the kettleball kickboxing workout and met Megan at one of the classes she teaches in Manhattan. Hilty said she gets bored easily, but these classes keep her interest.
Megan and Dasha have so much fun working out together they decided to put together an event that would introduce the combination to others while raising money for a good cause. The ladies enjoyed post workout fuel of Chobani frozen yogurt pops, fresh fruit and mini frittatas.
However, just because the ladies were exercising doesn’t mean they left all the glitz at home. Miss New York 2013, Joanne Nosuchinsky, worked out in her tiara and sash. Megan Hilty wore Russian Brilliants' Dazzling Martini Glass style earrings, which retail for $350. There’s no reason you can’t look and feel glamorous while getting in shape!
