Fit, Strong and Sexy - The Body Transforming Home Workout

The Body Transforming Home Workout

It never fails to amaze me how so many of us will spend both money and time we don’t have on expensive clothing, designer accessories, aesthetic treatments, expensive brunches and dinners, yet claim not to have the time, money (insert ‘reason’ here), on the most important thing you can: your health and fitness! To be ‘real’ with you, we know it’s not about the designer ensemble you have on or how ...[Read More]

28 Days: My Experience With The Feel It, See It, Share It New Year Challenge

28 Days: My Experience With The Feel It, See It, Share It New Year Challenge

I did the FEEL IT, SEE IT, SHARE IT NEW YEAR CHALLENGE.   I’m not going to lie – I didn’t know what to expect or what I would get out of it. That uncertainty coupled with all of the holiday party temptations and a dry December (which is pretty much the most difficult time to not drink alcohol) made me a bit uneasy going into the month. But, now that it is over I am SO glad I did it. (An ...[Read More]

Happy Holidays! Melanie Kotcher’s Fave Playlist for Working Out, Travel, and More.

Hi everyone! Melanie Kotcher here.   HERE is my fave playlist that I use in my private Pilates sessions.   It gets me totally pumped as soon as I put it on (it’s more upbeat than what you might hear in most Pilates classes because I like a little extra cardio boost from time to time).   Want a little motivation while cooking that holiday meal? Or maybe you just want a jolt of ...[Read More]

How to See What You’re Made of: Climb a Mountain…17 Times.

Several months ago, I said ‘Yes’ to the dare (ahem challenge) of a lifetime. I clearly had no idea what I was in for, and a part of me knows I did it because it sounded ‘badass’, and who doesn’t want to be a badass? And then it got ‘real’, and I got nervous….and scared.
