This is my 8th week talking about all things boutique fitness, and for now this will be where the series ends. To wrap things up, we’re going to explore a fairly new player in the game: Row House. This new franchise has been popping up all over the country with their distinctive yellow “W.” Once… Continue reading Let’s Talk Fitness: Row, Row, Row Your Erg
Put ’em up. We’re boxing this week. Although this high intensity fitness concept is not new to the scene (it’s actually been around for hundreds of years), it has certainly gained a lot more popularity over the recent years. Maybe we have Rocky to thank for that. Or the many influential celebrities who have posted… Continue reading Let’s Talk Fitness: Jab, Cross, Hook, Uppercut!
If your mind immediately went to 50 Shades of Grey, you clearly missed the first half of this title. I’m talking about the high-intensity, hustle for the muscle, drenched in sweat workout that is Barry’s Bootcamp. Barry’s is very much a founding member of the boutique fitness studio trend that has spread like wildfire over… Continue reading Let’s Talk Fitness: The Red Room
Fun fact: as a baby, my parents would often find me sleeping in a child’s pose. They called it the frog (lol). The bendiness stayed with me through many years of competitive gymnastics, which is really where I think I gained a love for stretching. That’s right, this week we’re talking about yoga. But there… Continue reading Let’s Talk Fitness: Join me in child’s pose

This week I’m switching gears a bit to talk about barre fitness! For the sake of simplicity, I’m using the term “barre” to encompass all barre fitness studios (Pure Barre, The Bar Method, Barre3, etc.). The basis of barre is inspired by ballet fitness. The workout focuses on a small range of motion and targets… Continue reading Let’s Talk Fitness: Barre
You guessed it, this week’s fad is Orangetheory Fitness. But before I jump in, let me recap last week’s intro (in case you missed it): I love fitness. There are A LOT of fitness fads in the world right now. I’ve tried pretty much all of them. Over the next few weeks (maybe months?), I’ll… Continue reading Let’s Talk Fitness: #OrangeNation
If you know me, you know that fitness is more than just a hobby. It’s my obsession. Rather than dreading going to the gym, I dread the days that I don’t get to sweat. There’s something so liberating about focusing all of your attention and energy on your movement, where no other thoughts have a… Continue reading Let’s talk fitness.
What does it take to compete on the world’s biggest stage? Talent, determination, and A LOT training of course. But I think the biggest thing that separates Olympians from the rest of us is their mental toughness. The ability to push yourself past seemingly impossible roadblocks and never give up is at the heart of… Continue reading To Argentina and Beyond
August used to be my favorite month. It’s summer, I get to see my family for Labor Day at the end of the month, and most importantly, it’s my birthday month (always a cause for celebration in my opinion!). But after suddenly losing my job in August of 2018 and feeling stuck in a state… Continue reading “Just keep breathin’ and breathin’ and breathin’.”
