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[...]

Marathon Training Week 2

This week was all about ensuring I didn’t get off track while traveling. Luckily, I arranged my travel (and fun activities) in a way that actually made it quite easy. Monday: Rest Day Resting on Mondays is quickly becoming my favorite thing. Mostly because I am exhausted after the weekend, eve[...]

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[...]

Even 20 Minutes Works

I’ve had one of those months, where I am lucky if I spend three days in a row in the same city. This also means that when I am in the same city, I am working significant hours. Mythical “slow season” strikes again. My whacked out schedule really had the potential to derail my train[...]

I’m a Runner

*in honor of National Running Day* I overheard someone at yoga today talking about how a friend “does yoga to run.” And I thought that makes sense. I enjoy yoga, and it makes me feel good, but it started as a way to stretch myself out so that I was running better. My first memory [&helli[...]

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&#[...]

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 [...]

Born to Run

At our wedding, my mother-in-law jokingly expressed a wish that my “athletic genes” would be more prominent in her future grandchildren, since her sons never really had a strong desire to be active. I never really thought much about what genes had to do with it…I mean I just had a [...]

Getting Back Into a Florida Routine

Now that we are officially unpacked, we are able to get back into our routines. I never realized what a creature of habit I was until it was physically impossible for me to keep my habits. Even when I am traveling a lot for work, I have a routine…which is easy to do since I […][...]
