Win Free Tickets to the Sweat USA Fitness Festival With Jillian Michaels

Here in Miami, fitness is a way of life. And it's not just because bikini season never ends (though that is one hell of a motivating factor). The Magic City crowd is made up of a unique mix of vain party people and neo-hippie health nuts. And the one thing we all share is a desire to look and feel our best.

So it's no wonder that the Sweat USA chose Miami Beach as the host city for its inaugural fitness festival. Taking place Oct. 11 to 13, Sweat USA will bring celebrity names to South Florida -- people like The Biggest Loser's Jillian Michaels, P90X's Tony Horton, and Insanity's Shaun T. Together, they'll headline a three-day festival of fitness, health, and wellness, featuring more than 100 exhibitors at the Miami Beach Convention Center.

Want to let Sweat USA pump you up? We're giving away five pairs of Weekend Expo passes to the event. Read on to find out more.

The celebrity names on the Sweat USA lineup are probably the event's biggest draw. But they're just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to getting your Sweat on. Beginning Friday, October 11, the event will showcase dozens of new and innovative products, plans, and equipment, letting attendees check out the latest fitness trends firsthand.

Saturday and Sunday will take that approach to the next level, hosting a series of workout sessions - including some classes led by the celebrity trainers. It's a chance for you to hone your skills in Zumba, Yoga, Pilates, Flywheel Cycling, MMA, Crossfit -- or to try a totally different workout, like Surfset, a surfing-inspired class.

We're giving away five Weekend Expo passes to the event. Here's how to win:

1) Email your full name to [email protected]. Make sure the subject line says "Sweat USA Giveaway."

2) Cross your fingers -- we'll randomly select five emailers to receive a pair of tickets to Sweat USA.

3) The deadline to enter is 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, October 1. Winners will be notified via email.
