What’s the difference between pilates and yoga?

I’ve been thinking about taking up pilates, mostly because I want that tight core. But I am skeptical about my ability to do so. Enter this handy dandy infographic that compares pilates to yoga and makes me think I can possibly do this. You can find the original post here.[...]

Orange Theory: 90 Minute Class

“It’s just an additional 30 minutes,” said a very optimistic Laney to her very hesitant husband just before she punished both of them with a grueling workout. Ever since starting Orange Theory a few months ago, I have been dying to try my hand at the 90 minute class. In my crazy[...]

Pushing Yourself in Your Normal Workout Routine

It might be the former athlete in me, but part of my mind games is to pretend I am in some sort of competition. I do it when I am working out alone in my home gym. I find myself pretending I have to reach a certain point by a certain time to “win.” I […][...]

Spinning Might Be My Third Love

It is kind of sad that in order for me to get to a spin class these days, I have to be in NYC. It’s not that Delray doesn’t have spin studios (PurCycle and Flywheel aren’t too far away), it is just that their class schedules aren’t really conducive to mine. It is partially my[...]

Building a Complete Home Gym

This has been the longest stretch I’ve gone without belonging to a big box gym since I was a newly minted entry-level PR person barely scraping by in NYC.  Getting into a long-term relationship with a gym is almost as serious as getting into a long-term relationship with a significant other. [...]

Marathon Training Week 11

This week didn’t go exactly as planned, because….well life. For the last few weeks I have been comfortably busy at work, and then this past week was as if everyone came back to reality.  So my training schedule didn’t go as smoothly as I hoped, and my desire to increase my mileage[...]

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 […][...]

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[...]

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 [...]
