New Year, New You – JCPenney and Karina Smirnoff
By Clare Varga

The Active Team took a mid-week break with JCPenney and Karina Smirnoff to take a peek at the new active collection and break a sweat.

On Wednesday, the Active team decided to keep the resolutions rolling. No one denies wanting to go into a new year fresher, healthier and with better habits, so when JCPenney invited us over to a morning filled with juice demos, a fabulous workout and a peek at the new spring collection, how could we say no?

We arrived down at the showroom to find a full-on juice bar, complete with recipe books and started tasting. Karina Smirnoff from Dancing with the Stars even hopped in to make us some juice herself! Karina looked fit in JCPenney’s Xersion and CityStreets Activewear lines as she led dance classes and juiced healthy treats with JCPenney’s Bella High Power Juice Extractor and Magic Bullet Blender. After some tasting, we were ready to start the workout. Karina led an upbeat (and tough!) workout for the group that really embodied JCPenney’s fun-loving approach.

See below for a sneak peek at the newest JCPenney line set to hit stores in the next few months!


Lots of bright colors, fun prints and performance fabrics are just what we were hoping for to welcome spring into our workouts – no disappointments here. Make sure to check out the new line over at and get into gear!
