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[...]

Continuing my yoga kick

I just finished up my first 36 days of the Ultimate Yogi program. To recap, I am back in 2s for skirts, down 4lbs and feeling amazing since I have been sleeping better. I hadn’t really thought about it, but because of the commitment to yoga I was getting up at the same time every […][...]

Since Adam Levine was named People’s ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ last week, there have been countless articles detailing how yoga gave him that body, how it improved his sex life, and helped him remain more focused.  We’ve heard Gisele say that yoga was what got her figure back aft[...]

The Ultimate Yogi: First Impressions

A wise person wrote on my birthday card recently “the “9s” are harder than the “0s.” It is as if I wear my anxiety ridden mind on my sleeve, because turning 29 has been stressful. It is entirely my fault too. I mean what was I thinking at 22 setting career and life goal[...]

Workouts That Are Leaving Me Gasping

I am currently in what I will call a “trainer transition period.” Essentially, I’ve used up all of my training sessions and I am not entirely sure I want to sign up again. The last few months have been so busy, that making time to get to the gym is hard enough without having to [&h[...]

Revolve Cross Cycle Challenge

Hello friends, it’s been awhile. The last few weeks have been pretty busy…I always think August is going to be slow this year it was anything but. However, since I basically shut down if I don’t exercise I did make time to attend Revolve’s Cross Cycle Challenge. I was jealous[...]

I Need This App More Than Anything

By now we all know that I am traveling at least two weeks out of every month. Sometimes it is a quick overnight trip, sometimes it is for three days at a time. Bottom line: I travel and need to fit in my workouts. So I bring DVDs and get fit kits from my hotel […][...]

Can I do a women only gym?

That’s the question I was asking myself as I exited Uplift Studios last Friday. I am not one to be intimidated by the dudes in the weight room, but there was something nice about walking into a gym and studio that didn’t smell like stale sweat. (You know exactly the smell that I am talki[...]
