Balance is the Key to Life!

People are often surprised by the various forms of exercise I do. I guess most yogis and runners don’t do CrossFit or vise versa, yet I like to do all three.  For me, each activity helps and supports me in different ways.  My workouts provide me with great physical and emotional balance; all feeding into the various aspects of my life and personality. Why do one when you can do all three?

Trip of a Lifetime!

bcakesI am back in the States after a fabulous two week cruise in the Mediterranean.  Over the course of my trip I got to visit and explore Rome and Naples-Italy, Istanbul and Kusadasi-Turkey, as well as Santorini, Mykonos, and Athens- Greece.  It was certainly a trip of a lifetime!

Get in a Workout Even When on Vacation!!

IMG_6621This week I am preparing and packing for vacation.  My husband and I are going to be taking a two week cruise in the Mediterranean. We will be visiting Italy, Turkey, and Greece.  In order to prepare for travel, one of the most important things I do is to plan and write down my schedule and workouts ahead of time.  It is important for me, that while I am away, I still find time to workout. Working out is an important part of my everyday life and I want to make sure I can continue to maintain some sort of balance and routine even while I travel. Plus, since I have started my training for the NYC marathon I need to run 6 days a week.  So it’s even more critical for me to have a workout plan in place. I want to be sure I get my workouts in and still have plenty of time to enjoy this once in a lifetime vacation.

Let’s Plank!

Plank

A strong healthy practice, starts with a strong healthy core.

Those of you who know me or have taken one of my classes know that I LOVE planks!! I am sure to incorporate tons of planks into my flows.  When coming to class, you can expect planks, side planks, plank holds, and plank push-ups 🙂

The plank is one of the best exercises you can do for your core because it works your transverse abdominals or your “six pack” abdominal muscles. It also helps to  engage your back, arms, shoulders, glutes, and hamstrings.  Just a few of the reasons why I love planks so much! Continue reading Let’s Plank!
