Gambling, Drinking and Sweating in Atlantic City

Posted: Oct. 2nd, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse
Atlantic City held its first-ever Sweat AC event a few weekends ago (Sep 21-23) and marks a move that the city making to get away from its seedy reputation. As Atlantic City attempts to rebuild its reputation, keep an eye out for more events and festivals that move away from gambling and toward things to do that you wouldn’t mind writing home about.

Jillian Michaels has some filthy mouth.

You know what she just said? She said, “Don’t finish like a pussy.” She yelled it right into the wraparound face-microphone she’s using to address this full ballroom of devoted followers. Ordinarily I don’t mind such vulgarity, but right now, I am in fact being a big pussy.

I’m wheezing and shaking as my one-arm plank threatens to pop up into teepee. The guy in front of me is sweating so much that when I drop down to a superman—the one where you stretch facedown on the mat and lift your arms and legs into the air—my nose is just inches from his puddle. So when Jillian calls me a pussy, it stings.
