I heart NY

I have been circling a number of posts from overhead lately, intending to finish and publish them last week. But then last week happened, with all its hurricane force fury, and now anything health or fitness related seems downright trivial in comparison. Other bloggers and writers who experienced Hurricane Sandy first-hand have been able to… Read More »

Bootcamp with As One

Even though it was a cool evening, (by NYC in August standards) last week’s Summer of Fitness workout sponsored by LOLË and FITiST was the sweatiest workout of the series yet. Here’s what As One’s version of bootcamp looked like. (Sidenote: they do not take the word “bootcamp” lightly.) Squats. Pushups. Wide second position raised arm squats. Fold-up crunches. Lunges. Tricep… Read More »

Santorini = Love (Greece part 2)

The end of my Euro travelogue has finally come, and I suppose I should return to our regularly scheduled health and fitness type posts, since this is ostensibly a healthy living blog. (Oh yea, right.) But first: a glimpse into our too-short time on the so-perfect-it-looks-fake island of Santorini. It’s interesting that we chose to visit 3 geographically close places that are entirely… Read More »

Mykonos! (Greece part 1)

While we had an amazing time soaking in all the culture during our Istanbul adventure, we were equally thrilled to make like starships (who were meant to fly) and head to the beach (each) in Greece! The second part of our Eurotrip brought us to Mykonos, where literally every single building is white with blue shutters. Seriously, can… Read More »

Turkish Delight

Hubs and I just returned from a truly incredible vacation visiting Istanbul, Mykonos, and Santorini (3 cities that were high on our “really want to travel to” bucket list). I don’t have enough hyperbolic adjectives in my vocabulary to describe how completely and totally amazing this trip was. But I’ll do what I can. Right… Read More »

FlyBarre with Kara Liotta

If you didn’t catch my post about last week’s Summer of Fitness workout, here’s a little rundown of the program: Every Tuesday in June, July, and August, LOLË and FITiST are offering free outdoor fitness classes. Each week spotlights a different (stellar) NYC fitness studio and instructor, and classes are taught outdoors in Tribeca. It’s a magical NYC thing. Speaking of… Read More »

Summer of Fitness: Nalini Method

How cool is this? Every Tuesday in June, July, and August, LOLË and FITiST are teaming up to offer FREE outdoor fitness classes. Each week is a different NYC fitness studio and instructor, and the line-up is freaking stellar. The last meet-up was cancelled due to torrential downpour (get with the program, weather!), so this week’s workout was… Read More »
