In late February, #HHTC was honored to be invited by The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas and the FITiST Collective to host a week long special edition of classes. We set up shop in the West Tower fitness center, taking over the studio to bring two session a day to both resort guests and Las Vegas locals. Even some members of our own team were able to join us from NYC for the fun! We were able to meet folks from Seattle, Philadelphia, and Houston amongst many locales and from all different walks of life. And now they share the common bond of having survived #HHTC!
Here's an excerpt from Brad Wete's story on Hollywood Hino
"A wintry mix falls onto the quiet streets of the New York City’s Financial District. With the weather being the type that encourages most to bury themselves under blankets, it’s a wonder that Church Street Boxing gym is as busy as it is....."
Check out the article that Hollywood Hino was featured in for Black Enterprise Magazine. Link to the article below.
In December, just before the holidays, we had the pleasure of visiting 30 Rock and taping a segment for the Meredith Vieira show. It aired on January 7th, 2015. See the full episode description. HERE
Celebrity Personal Trainer, former Professional Boxer, and Fitness
Professional, Hollywood 'Hino" Ehikhamenor, offers a workout that¹s not
for the weak of mind nor faint of heart. It's intense, hardcore training
inspired by the conditioning used by world championship level fighters.
Take an hour out of our your day, lace up your gloves, and get in the
best shape of your life.
Here is the excerpt from WellandGood.com about the event!
"Casino waitresses at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas may soon start getting requests for coconut water from sweaty fitness enthusiasts stopping to try their luck at a few slots.
Today, the hotel officially launched a partnership with boutique fitness curator Fitist that will bring top brands like SLT, Barry’s Bootcamp, andTracy Anderson in to offer classes to guests and locals through March 1.
Fitist co-founder Neda Talebian Funk says The Cosmopolitan approached them about the partnership after they heard about the workout collective concept they’d debuted over the summer in the Hamptons (and which they’re working to bring to New York eventually).
“The Cosmopolitan really wanted to put their best foot forward in fitness, but didn’t want to bring in just one studio or concept,” Funk says. “They liked the idea of bringing in some of the best partners from both coasts.”
SLT kicks off classes today (yes, they trucked in Megaformers!), followed by305 Fitness, an adapted version of Barry’s Bootcamp (sans treadmills), Tracy Anderson, Yoga for Bad People, and then Hollywood Hino. Prices of classes will vary by studio, with some handling booking on their own platforms, and Fitist handling it for others.
Unlike at the summer collective, however, the brands won’t share the space to offer a variety of classes each day. Instead, each will take it over for a limited time, ranging from a few days to about two weeks.
“It’s a great way to start testing this idea of having the collective pop-up in different locations around the country,” Funk says. (And maybe to also test whether endorphins increase gambling?) —Lisa Elaine Held

"Esteemed Athletes* of New York City,
This Saturday, December 6th, your NIKE+ NYC Training journey will culminate with the Finale. In the spirit of competition, I want to make sure you are properly prepared for what you are about to face.
The weather for The Finale is currently looking to hover around 50° with a likely chance of rain. We will be stationed near the water, so the wind will also be a factor. The kits you were given were meant to prepare you for this type of environment, so please remember to wear your Hyperwarm tights and tops provided to you. Your overall experience & safety is paramount, so bring whatever you need to be comfortable and perform at an optimum level. There may be a short period between your warm-up and the start of the competition, so feel free to bring hats, gloves, and scarves for the earlier hours. Throughout this competition, your NIKE gear will serve as your uniform, to identify and unite each team as you push yourselves throughout the morning. As the competition heats up, so will you.
Keeping your safety and comfort in mind, we will provide heated areas for all athletes to warm themselves throughout The Finale. Bag check will also be available to store your belongings through the duration of the day.
A reminder that nutrition and hydration are keys to athletic success that extend both before and after the day of competition; but not to worry, there will be plenty of water, snacks, and other refreshments available to you at the site.
Make sure you bring your best on Saturday. Our NIKE+ NYC Training journey isn’t over yet, and I want to make sure this is a memorable experience for all of you. Be prepared for any weather regardless of projected reports. This is the time of the year where conditions can change hourly. Look out for yourselves, your teammates, and respectfully, the competition. Prepare yourselves - body and mind -for what is to come."
