Best iPhone 6 Cases for Sport

For 2.5 years, I was a Mophie loyalist. I used my Mophie as both a protective case and for charge. But then suddenly Mophie quality went downhill. In a matter of 3 months, I went through 3 new Mophies. They either burnt out or broke after 1 drop and then it was back to the Apple store for a new one. At $100 a pop, it just wasn't worth it to me anymore! I decided to strike Mophies from my life and move on to new things. I discovered there's a lot out there in the world of iPhone cases, and with a brand new iPhone 6 on my hands, I began to test. Of all the cases I tried, I found 3 that I love for fitness and sport. So, I'll only be sharing these 3 since Mizzfit.com is a fitness-focused blog. If you know of a case that shoud be on this list, please add it to the comments section below with a direct link. Thank you! 1. The STM Armband for iPhone 6 and Smartphones up to 5.1 inches ($30) I am head over heels for this case and want to make out with the publicist who sent it to...

Rock The Boat Zumba Cruise - Just Announced!

Now you can dance your heart out on water because Zumba just announced that they've teamed up with Royal Caribbean to create the first ever Zumba vacation-cruise experience. Check out the video below! If you're a Zumba fanatic, you should know that the cruise doesn't set sail for another 7 months from Fort Lauderdale, Florida but at least you have some time to plan, right? So mark your calendars for January 25th, 2016! It's a 5 day adventure and my sources are telling me that there will be 130 of the most famous Zumba instructors onboard including Beto Perez himself. Every class will be set to live music and DJ's. And just in case you stop dancing to see where the hell you're going, the cruise will be sailing to Falmouth, Jamaica with a stop in Labadee, Haiti for a private live concert featuring the hottest Caribbean artists. It's not ALL dancing though, you'll still get to enjoy the luxuries of being on a cruise. Then again, I've been to Zumba conferences in Miami...

My Mom + Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Mother's Day is coming up on Sunday and sadly I won't be in the same city as my mom to celebrate. But I always send her something special because she's amazing and the sole reason I exist. My mom and I don't always agree on everything but she's been very supportive of my life choices and has taken great care of me throughout my life. Sometimes it's even hard for her to let go and realize that I'm an adult now. She's that great of a mom! As we enter into more of a loving friendship, I've gotten to know my mother in new ways. She works out with me, attends my events and has modeled for print ads (like the one above which actually never ran) and in magazines with me. I used to think of her as just my mom without fully worshipping everything she's accomplished. As I get older, it's easier to see the full story of her life. I ask more questions and I look at photographs from her past. She's not just my mom...she's so much more. I recently submitted my mother to the Amazing...

On Board with Team SCA

I've sailed before but not quite like this! After writing about Team SCA and their amazing adventure racing around the world, I was invited on a press trip to sail with them. I'm going to try to put into words how incredible of an experience this was for me. While the entire Team SCA crew was not on board, 2 of its sailors were there to answer all my questions. Just to clarify, the Volvo Ocean Race is ongoing and was in full effect while I was on this press trip, but a few crew members at a time are allowed to come off the boat for a leg of the race and rest up. They meet up with their team at the next stop. For my press trip, Sara and Elodie were my guides. I learned a lot from them about Team SCA's voyage, race conditions and day to day life at sea during this gorgeous afternoon spent sailing on the Hudson River. I made this video to show you what it was like on the boat. Even though it was sunny and warm outside, we were all bundled up. The TP52 yacht you see me...

Half Marathon Training Tips - Prep With Me!

I recently ran the More/Fitness/Shape Magazine Women's Half Marathon in New York City and couldn't be more pleased with the quality of my run. So many factors go into having a great run. Of course, you have to train consistently, eat right and get plenty of sleep and hydration. But there are other things you learn through trial & error to help improve your run. I've been running long distances since highschool and to this day I'm still discovering new tricks for a smoother run. Here are 5 Tips that helped me excel in my recent half marathon (and make me want to attempt another...even though I swore it'd be my last one at mile 10...so typical!). 1. Test everything you plan on wearing for the official half marathon race day during your last few training runs. From your clothes to accessories and gadgets, don't take a risk by wearing it for the first time on race day! Make sure to give it a test run so that you know it feels comfortable on your body and that it works the...

Healthy Cocktails with Me in NYC!

I'm hosting a fab event on April 30th in NYC with David Barton Gym and LimeLight shops. Come join me! It's going to be a fun springtime evening social, if you will, and a great chance to check out the evolution of LimeLight! I remember when it was a raging club back in the day, full of craziness and trouble that I'm too square to subject myself to now (but...I was a wild one once). Times have changed. Now that crazy party church is home to David Barton Gym and LimeLight shops where health and fashion are king and "queen" (it's in Chelsea, so I had to). But we're going to stir things up nonetheless. Come join our healthy party with cocktails from SkinnyGirl and Juice Press, and wine sorbet from Frosae Wine Sorbae, which is basically FROZEN WINE! Heeeeeello, you'll know where I'll be all night. Grab the rest of the details from the invite and feel free to ask me any questions. I should probably mention that the first 150 people to show up will take home a gift bag and...
