Think Pink! Fit Approach and Pink Lady® Apples Partner to Inspire Active Living and Better Eating

Healthy Community and Popular Apple Brand Team Up For #SweatPinkLady Contest that Encourages Participants to SweatPink – and Eat Healthy – During National Nutrition Month

SAN FRANCISCO - March 17, 2014 - PRLog -- In honor of National Nutrition Month, Fit Approach, a forum for inspiration, motivation, stories and friendship, and Pink Lady® Brand Apples, known for their unique personality, distinctive pink blush, sweet flavor and crisp texture, today announced that they are teaming up to help others achieve fitness goals and lead healthier lifestyles. As part of this partnership, the two “blushing” brands are also hosting a #SweatPinkLady contest, which will incorporate healthy Pink Lady® recipes and promote SweatPink activity.

“It takes 200 days of tender loving care to produce a Pink Lady® apple, and only the very best pass the rigorous inspection tests to receive the Pink Lady® classification,” said Alan Taylor, marketing director of Pink Lady® America. “It’s that same commitment that’s needed year-round to ensure you’re eating well and working out. We’re thrilled to be working with Fit Approach to embody – and promote – the kind of dedication that’s needed for a healthy lifestyle.”

Fit Approach is a nationwide community of women who are dedicated to living a fit and healthy lifestyle. As a supportive group of people, including everyone from ultra-marathoners to those just beginning their fitness journeys, they not only share stories and provide inspiration and offer ideas, but Fit Approach's certified ambassadors also teach yoga classes and boot-camps all over America.

Pink Lady® is not only the first apple in the American Heart Association Food Certification Program (Heart Check Mark) and the first apple in the Guiding Stars food rating system, but it’s also the first apple to have its own color (Pink Lady Pink™) from Sherwin Williams. The brand also partners with Healthy Kids Concepts and Apple Health for Kids to provide a thousand low-income children in the fruit industry with health insurance, including preventive care.

“We’re incredibly excited to partner with Pink Lady® apples to promote awareness around National Nutrition Month, as well as help motivate people to increase their activity levels and SweatPink,” said Jamie Walker, founder of Fit Approach. “The synergy between both brands is undeniable, as is the passion in both of our communities for healthy living, so it just made sense to spread the ‘Pink’ love.”
