Naked Yoga Class in NYC


I just read the article Hot Nude Yoga: Shedding Clothes To Shed Pounds which references Naked Yoga NYC and thought you freaky deaky's out there might want to know about it. This isn't a class I'll be reviewing unless of course someone gets me very drunk. So I recommend reading the article because the author, Ryan McLendon, actually participated in naked yoga and shares his views on it. I'm not judging (ok, maybe I am a little) but I think yoga is about looking inward and screening out chaos and distraction. I practice yoga a few times a week and sometimes it's the only way I can relax. If naked bodies became a part of my yoga experience, I would seriously cry. How is nudity NOT DISTRACTING...or funny...or gross...or downright tantalizing? I just don't get how a roomful of naked strangers will help me find inner peace. What if you catch someone staring at your vajayjay or you accidentally stare at someone else's? Don't even get me started on a penis stare down! It...

Exercize Your Hands with the Eggsercizer


Eggselent. As if you didn't eggspect me to say that! In all seriousness, I think these are great. I get carpal tunnel from blogging, emailing and texting too much. I hate you even though I love you, dear crackberry of mine. Yoga helps the stiffness and pain in my hands but since I can't do yoga 24/7 I'm going to fondle these rubber eggs. I'll let you know how that works out for me. They're kinda of cute...dontcha think?

iJoyride: Fitness Machine or Sexy Time Gadget?


Or both?

The iJoyride is a horse-riding inspired fitness machine that supposedly tightens the tummy, butt and thighs. It's a mechanical bull minus the debauchery of a bachelorette party. You can ride it at 3 different speed levels and even wear a cowboy hat if you like. Use it to strengthen your core muscles (you'll have to engage them to maintain your center of gravity) or to practice for your next bull-riding competition. The rest is entirely up to you as long as it's in the privacy of your own home.

If it wasn't so expensive ($450) I'd definitely try it out...then again, there's always Johnny Utah's.

Spring Training in NYC with TCOY Fitness


Head to the Flatiron district on Sundays to spring train with Guy Codio, professional trainer and founder of TCOY Fitness. Guy leads a a fat burning, Functional Training Camp that works your legs, arms, back and abs like it's nobody's business. You'll use weighted balls, kettlebells, TRX suspension straps, jump rope, resistance cords, physio balls and your own body weight for conditioning exercises. Classes feel like a semi-private training session and Guy keeps a close eye on your fitness level to help you master each exercise with the right amount of weight. I've been working out with Guy for ages and I couldn't be happier with the results.

Functional training allows you to perform the activities of daily life more easily without injury (like carrying your groceries 10 blocks home from the grocery store). If you have your groceries delivered, then just do it for the hot bod. Go consistently to lose weight, feel stronger, improve your posture, and energize. Your...
