AUBURN HILLS, Mich. – The Detroit Pistons are tipping off Pistons FIT Week presented by Humana tomorrow – from Jan. 24 to Feb. 1 – as part of the 2013 NBA FIT Live Healthy Week.  Featuring all 30 NBA teams, players throughout the league are joining community members and partners to highlight the importance of living an active, healthy lifestyle.

 

Pistons FIT Week starts with the organization holding an interactive fitness assembly at Mackenzie Elementary/Middle School in Detroit at 1 p.m. tomorrow. The assembly, hosted by Pistons Academy Coach Aaron Smith and the Detroit Pistons Flight Crew, will educate students about the importance of living a healthy lifestyle and will feature a fitness clinic and shooting competition.

 

FIT Week continues Monday, Jan. 28, when the Pistons host a FIT Clinic at The Palace from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Pistons players, Jason Maxiell and Viacheslav Kravtsov, along with Pistons Academy coaches Geo Thomas and Aaron Smith, will lead more than 100 invited third- through eighth-grade students from metropolitan Detroit through several basketball drills and exercises while also sharing tips on living a healthy lifestyle.

 

The Pistons will wear special Adidas™ NBA FIT shooting shirts when they play host to the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday, Jan. 29 and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday, Feb. 1 at The Palace.  Both games tip off at 7:30 p.m. The shooting shirts are available at NBAStore.com.
