Resolve this time. For free.
Happy new year, friends! If you resolved to lose weight this year, you’re definitely not alone. However, if you actually lose the weight and keep it off, you will most certainly be in the minority. Most people want to lose weight…that’s why it’s a $60-billion dollar industry and growing. But do you really need to spend thousands… read more
I get it: this month is insane. If you need excuses to live like a sloth, they’re in abundance. End-of-year deadlines mean late nights in the office. Obligatory holiday parties blow the calorie budget. Family gatherings add unnecessary stress. The holidays can be a hot mess on the waistline! Planning for success will take a bit of work, but maintaining… read more
By the end of this year, New York will have played host to 50 million tourists…a record for the history books. Of those tourists, only 11.5 million will visit my beloved Central Park. [source] My first encounter with Central Park was as a tourist, and it was an unforgettable experience. To come to NYC and miss it would be a sin! I don’t know how I’d… read more
Winter Weight No More.
Brrr. I can’t warm up. The annual pilgrimage to the refrigerator has begun. How many pounds do you gain every winter? 3? 5? 10? Friends, break the cycle. Stop the madness. Vow to be different this year and take action. Yes, it’s cold outside, but that’s no excuse to stay indoors. Buy some warm gear and continue your summertime fitness routine.… read more
A little courage goes a long way.
Remember those T-Shirts with big red scary letters that spelled, “No Fear” in the early 90’s? They came about in the age of dangerous and extreme sports like pro skateboarding, dirtbike riding and skydiving. This call to face death directly in the face, even embrace it, is so typical of teenage angst. Every generation has it’s call… read more

The Wrong Guy.
More often than I’d like to admit, I witness a trainer doing definite harm to their client. Yes, we all have done strange exercises with our clients and not really known why we’re doing it and all seemed fine at the time, no harm done. But the longer we’re in this business, hopefully we grow and learn along the way. Some of us don’t. I have… read more
Wedding Tracker: Finally!
As you can see from the photos, Kaylin’s girlfriends threw quite the bachelorette party weekend complete with a sailor and pin-up theme!! They even took her to a polo match complete with the whole dress/big hat thing. We all need friends like that! And now, my friends… After nine months of stress, hard work and dedication, Kaylin’s… read more
I was training a client some weeks ago in Central Park when the zen of our session was rudely interrupted. A stereotypical drill sergeant in fatigues and combat boots was hollering at the top of his lungs at a meek and sheepish foursome of middle-aged women. I think we were all in shock, as the carrying-on seemed out of context. I’m not quite that sure these… read more
Prepare & Plan
Sometimes pregnancies “just happen.” But if you’re able to plan out the “when” part, having a strong body may make all the difference in a healthy pregnancy. Research has shown, time and again, that exercise during pregnancy is beneficial for both mom and baby long after birth. ACOG states that pregnant women can and should… read more
