Think you can’t run?

Why Run? There is a reason there is NO greater metaphor for life: overcoming challenges, obstacles, rising above and uniting with other people than through a race, a race by foot, which requires only you, your body, your spirit, your energy.

How to stop procrastinating and get your dream body now!

Do you say you want to be fitter, stronger and sexier but you just don’t take consistent action? If your answer to that question is yes, this is for you! Often, we set goals for ourselves and stop short or never start at all.  Why is that?  For starters, we have all kinds of reasons and justifications for why we don’t follow through. Any of these sound familiar?   “I don’t have enough time.” ...[Read More]

i live by this

I live by this.

As I sit here on December 31st in a cozy old world bookstore (one of the few left) with a steamy mug of hot coffee, I am reflecting on the past year, the highlights, the hard times, the challenges, the accomplishments, and as I reflect I have this little spark of excitement knowing we are on the dawn of a fresh new year – the time when the world gives us the chance at a clean slate, a new beginnin ...[Read More]

Best Stretch Routine

The Best Stretch Routine-Dynamic Stretching

The question of the best way to stretch is clouded by so many misconceptions and conflicting studies. Every body is different, and ultimately you must find what works best for your body, BUT through a TON of my own experience, research and working with world class running coaches, strength strainers, and physical therapists – I concur that the very BEST way to stay injury free, improve flexibility ...[Read More]

Motivation is only part of the equation….

Motivation is only part of the equation….

“Discipline is choosing between what we want now and what we want MOST.” So many people believe that what’s keeping them from their dreams and goals is lack of motivation – I used to think that too.   But from my intense fascination with exercise, fitness and the psychology behind that, I realized this is not quite the case (in my opinion).   You see, I think motivation is th ...[Read More]

When we stop comparing ourselves…chat with Tracy Campoli

When we stop comparing ourselves…chat with Tracy Campoli

There have been a few times in my career when I’ve been thoroughly disappointed — even disgusted — with fellow women in the workplace and in life. No, I don’t expect all my female colleagues and associates to go out of their way for me and sing “Kumbaya” together, but I’m always stunned when a woman who could have been helpful to me wasn’t, when a wo ...[Read More]

Do I need Cardio to Lose Weight? Burn Fat?

Do I need Cardio to Lose Weight? Burn Fat?

I get this question ALL the time, so I created this short video to give you my answer~ First off: It is important to define WHAT CARDIO IS! Different people have different ideas of what cardio means, especially when it comes to working out. So let me first start by explaining there are two types of cardio: One is the long, slow sustained cardio, basically anything you can do for a sustained period ...[Read More]

The Terrifying ‘C-Zone’ – are you trapped here?

The Terrifying ‘C-Zone’ – are you trapped here?

“I spent my entire life in my comfort zone.” This statement is terrifying, isn’t it? If you are doing the same thing over and over waiting for change, or something exciting to happen, you are wasting your time. Too many of us, including myself, have learned this the hard way in some aspect of his/her life, and the crazy part is, it affects so much more than just that ‘area& ...[Read More]

Healthy is NOT the New Skinny

Healthy is NOT the New Skinny

We live in a society plagued by body image problems. I am the first to confirm that I love and appreciate all the effort that is put into countering the culture of body shaming, I’ve been on the receiving end much of my life and career (see this video I did on this topic: Why Are You so Skinny). But, I have to speak up because I think that in many ways so much of the ‘anti-body shaming’ actions, s ...[Read More]

The Truth Behind Barre Workouts – do they work?

The Truth Behind Barre Workouts – do they work?

What the heck is up with barre workouts, and are they worth $20-$30 per class? This is the question I have had since my (otherwise non-exercise-liking) girlfriends started plie-ing and pulsing their way through 1 hour studio workouts! Were they buying into the ‘too goo to be true’ claims that seem to be flying around; “Develop long, lean muscles without bulk.” “Sculpt a ballerina’s bod ...[Read More]
