Soaring with My Team

I am all about the team bonding. Sometimes we do it with a fry basket and wine; but I really love it when it involves some sort of funtivity. On one of my recent trips to NYC, we decided to try our hand at aerial yoga. I love aerial yoga, it is an entirely different […][...]

Workout Review: Yoga with Live Music at Colony Hotel

Whenever I mention my love for yoga someone tells me I need to check out yoga at the Colony Hotel.  It is led by Keith Fox and has live music with a rotating group of musicians. Know before you go….I went to sign up online, paid for the class, and then got a little confused […][...]

Marathon Training Week 3

This was an exciting week for me. Mostly because I was finally linking up with a running group to keep me motivated and I would get a new route! Thankfully this was a “back off” week. I say thankfully, because I had some terrible runs that left me scared I had already injured myself R[...]

Workout Review: PurCycle

When you think of boutique cycle studios you usually only hear about FlyWheel or SoulCycle. For people who aren’t spin aficionados they can be incredibly intimidating and overwhelming. That’s not the case with PurCycle in Delray Beach. The best way to describe PurCycle is a Mom & Pop[...]

Barry’s Bootcamp 30 Min Treadmill Workout

I’ve been wanting to try Barry’s Bootcamp for sometime now, but there hasn’t really been a convenient location to me. Hard as I try when I am in NYC unless something is in Midtown, I just can’t make it. And then the thought of driving down to Miami Beach for a gym class isn&#[...]

Workout Review: Orange Theory Fitness

Interval training has to be one of my favorite ways to workout. It keeps me from getting bored, and I tend to feel like I work harder. It was the combination of treadmills, rowers and weights that drew us to Orange Theory Fitness. Mention it to a group of friends and you almost always hear […[...]

Yoga Studio Review: Barkan Method Hot Yoga

A few years ago, I became hot yoga obsessed. In DC it became a Sunday morning tradition. While training for Marine Corp, I often went to yoga class after my Sunday long run with KB at Down Dog Yoga in Georgetown. Rachel’s power yoga class always left me feeling stretched and strong. And when [...]

Bringing the Sweat Without the Stink

If you are like me, you have a love/hate relationship with yoga. My brain tells me that I shouldn’t be sweating just from my prep stretching before class even starts, but then at the end of class–I have better flexibility, higher energy levels and I sleep like a baby. All great benefits.[...]

The day I defied gravity

I’ve always found the artists who do the beautiful dancing on the ribbon hanging from the ceiling just exquisite. They are so graceful while they are hanging 20-50 feet in the air, and so strong to only be hanging on by their feet! Closest I will ever come to that is aerial yoga, and that [&he[...]

On My Healthy Lifestyle Radar

Every January I make a promise with myself to stay out of the gym, and workout at home or by running outside (polar vortex obviously has that on the sideline). I just can’t handle the crowds, fighting for machines, my favorite spin bike or these people. So I pull out my trusty DVDs, or go [&he[...]
