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[...]

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&#[...]

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.[...]

Planning a Fit Vacation

Beginning Tuesday we are taking our first extended vacation in two years, a trip to London and Amsterdam that we have been planning since January. Yes, I did put in my PTO in January and saved most my days off for these next two weeks. In hindsight maybe not the best idea because I am insanely bur[...]

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[...]

This isn’t the first time I’ve contemplated a detox, but lately I’ve just really been feeling like I need it. I’m cranky, sluggish and feeling a little bloated…like all the time. Maybe it is the stress. Maybe it is all the travel. Whatever it is I need a swift kick in t[...]
