The Physique 57 Solution

When it comes to working out I’m kind of a cardio addict, but I know that fitness is all about a balance and exclusively taking spin classes isn’t a good idea for anyone. It’s important to do both cardio and weight/resistance training and to that end I try to get to Physique 57 as often … Continue reading The Physique 57 Solution

Lessons Learned from Acupuncture and Cupping

Since I exercise regularly I’ve been trying to be diligent about getting massages because while it’s relaxing to get them sporadically, for them to actually be effective there’s no way around the fact that you need to get them regularly (plus I’m a hypochondriac so I’m always worried about the “health” of my knees, back, … Continue reading Lessons Learned from Acupuncture and Cupping

Looking to Shed Some LBS? Consider this “Test”

A few days ago I went to Peak Performance, a very well-known training gym here in NYC to do an iMett Analysis. Before my recent Miami trip I spoke with the ladies behind Well + Good NYC and one of them told me that when she went to Canyon Ranch in South Beach taking this … Continue reading Looking to Shed Some LBS?

Barry’s Bootcamp – Because You Want to Fit Into “That” Dress

I’ve never believed in quick fixes — no one’s going to go from frump to fab in a week (at least not safely), but sometimes you just NEED to fit into that dress. I have a wedding this weekend and I have the most fantastic Ports 1961 dress I want to wear. The problem is … Continue reading Barry’s Bootcamp – Because You Want to Fit Into “That” Dress

SoulCycle: The Ultimate Workout

Even though every morning it’s a struggle to get myself out of bed for it, when I don’t take a class at my gym or at a studio somewhere else in Manhattan I usually feel like I’m not as alert (or, honestly, as happy), as I could be. The one exception to this is when … Continue reading SoulCycle: The Ultimate Workout

Interview with Holistic Health Coach Robyn Youkilis

I met Robyn through a mutual friend and she’s a fantastic resource for all health-related questions. It frustrates me to no end how attentive you have to be to what you’re eating to avoid being “fooled.” So many food giants more or less pay to have various “health seals” put on their boxes and portion … Continue reading Interview with Holistic Health Coach Robyn Youkilis

Eat to Look and Feel Your Best

I’m in good shape (most of the time at least), and it’s rare that I take more than three days off from the gym in a week, but every two-three weeks I have a moment where I look like the lady above! That aside I have a strong interest in nutrition and fitness so I … Continue reading Eat to Look and Feel Your Best

Walker’s Apothecary Chamomile Soothing Gel

The only beauty product I take with me to the gym is Murad’s Clarifying Body Spray ($37). Ladies, if you workout – get it, use it, you’ll start swearing by it! I spray it all over my back, chest, and neck immediately after getting out of any sweat-inducing class and it prevents me from getting … Continue reading Walker’s Apothecary Chamomile Soothing Gel

Interview with Bianca Jade aka MizzFit

Bianca Jade, aka MizzFit, and I initially connected over email because we’re both Cornell Alums who work in similar fields. When we first met in person, totally by chance, at a random Fashion Week event in February we made plans to have coffee and after spending some time with her discussing health and fitness I … Continue reading Interview with Bianca Jade aka MizzFit
