Off of busy West 14th street, a small orange sign marks the way into CLAY, a unique, innovative fitness experience.
I’m a huge fan of LUNA Bars and have been known to eat them before working out, as an afternoon snack and sometimes even for dessert.
By the time February rolls around, many of your nutrition and fitness-focused resolutions may not be going as planned.

This past summer, I had the pleasure of becoming absolutely addicted to Manhattan-based Physique 57, the thigh-burning, ab-tightening, high-energy workout class responsible for the toned tushies of celebs like Kelly Ripa and Christy Turlington. This torturous workout managed to keep my body in check despite my margarita and tortilla chip habit, giving me muscles I <... >
Recently, I had the chance to workout with former Mr. America, Rich Barretta, at his eponymous NYC Studio, Rich Barretta Private Training (RBPT). On 22nd Street off of 5th Avenue, it’s not easy to find RBPT as it’s in a rather unassuming building, with no signs or lights and on the 2nd floor. I walked <... >

Living in NYC means being surrounded by amazing food 24/7, which can be both great and a terrible vice for those looking to eat healthy. Sure you can get a vegan feast at 3am, but you can also get countless slices of greasy pizza. The point here is that as a New Yorker, I’m constantly <... >
As an avid non-morning person, I barely have time to shower and look presentable let alone eat a sensible and healthy breakfast. It is usually a piece of whole wheat bread and a banana I stuff into my mouth the moment I get to work. The day continues with a latte and a chicken sandwich <... >
Tired of heading to the same gym and hitting the same old machines with the same old trainer? I sure was and finally decided to tap into my creative side with JUKARI Fit to Fly, an hour-long workout with a durable three-stranded rope that’s fixed to the ceiling.

With corporate implemented ‘Summer Fridays’, long weekends dedicated to lounging beach side and the general laid-back vibe taken during the dog days of summer, our usual ‘strong as steel’ will-power falls wayside to ice cold fruity cocktails, gluttonous BBQs and an affinity towards sitting indoors with the air conditioner on full blast.
