Just because you’re not getting paid doesn’t mean  you have to become a Snuggie-draped couch troll – quite the contrary, my Pink Slipped friends! We’ve stressed the importance of exercise during a layoff before, and we’re back now with a Friday freebie aimed to help keep you fresh and fit in body, mind and soul.

Vital Juice is currently conducting its first ever Recessionista Pop-Up Wellness Retreat, combining physical fitness, nutrition, beauty, wellness and mental health in a series of classes, product samplings, DIY seminars and more.

“Recessionistas, health nuts and all Vital Juice subscribers! Join us for fitness classes, spa treatments, health foods, surprise celebs and more--all free! Let Vital Juice treat you to 3 days packed with your favorite health and wellness products and experiences. Take Hula Hoop Pilates or Strip Bar, relax with a blackberry massage or customized essential oils, sample the latest healthy snacks or let a nutritionist guide you through the aisles of Whole Foods Market. It's summer, and we're celebrating good health at no cost to you!”

Okay, so the event technically kicked off yesterday, but you can still join in until 6:00pm today and from 10:00am to 4:00pm tomorrow at the Old Virgin Megastore space at 14th Street and Broadway in Union Square. Look, it’s a Friday freebie, alright? Check here for every detail you could want, and right here for the remaining schedule.

Enjoy the weekend, and if you find something to do or see or get for free (no five finger discounts allowed) tip us off at Because as we often say around Pink Slipped HQ (or at least as I often say around everywhere), “If it’s for free, it’s for me!”
