Float Therapy Will Relax You. Watch Me Float!

Eeeek! It's been a month since I've blogged. How did that happen? My excuse is that I've been FILMING LIKE CRAZY! I'm trying this new thing where I investigate health and wellness trends like a detective. As I get older, I realize how important it is to poke around and get the inside scoop instead of just taking things at face value. So I've whipped out a larger magnifying glass (aka camera and corresponding film team) and started doing a lot more poking around than usual. Please make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for my latest work! But enough about poking, let's talk about FLOATING. It's a healing trend that's actually been around a lot longer than most people think. Yes, it's going through it's "boutique salon" stage right now, but people have been "floating" and even installing floating chambers in their homes for the last 20 years. Wellness just wasn't as popular back then as it is now, so of course, floating is now receiving more attention from a larger captive...

Tech Boom in Fitness, Fashion & Health

Tech is a hot topic in fitness, fashion and health more than ever these days. It's drastically changing these industries with more advanced fabrics, lighter and more funtional parts, more accurate tracking and motion sensors, and overall cooler customization. It's really amazing to see all the companies being born out of these kind of technological advancements. Technology spells OPPORTUNITY! I've been covering technology in fitness, fashion and health over the last 5 months and I really hope you enjoy these trend reports. The reason I find them so relevant is because by 2020, wearable technology alone with generate over 20 billion dollars in revenue. And I'm not talkin' pedometers! The category continues to evolve and expand beyond the fitness tracker we're all familiar with. It's a new tech-y world out there. Enjoy these recaps and please let me know what you think! This piece is from TechstyleNYC 2016 which just took place during New York Fashion Week on February 16th,...

How to HelloFresh! Become Your Own Chef!

Hey guys! As you know, I started cooking regularly because of HelloFresh. It's become my #1 healthy habit aside from going to the gym daily. It's also such a wonderful experience to share with the people I love. Whether it's my boyfriend coming over to cook with me, my mom visiting from Missouri or my best friend coming to spend the weekend with me to play in New York City, I literally ALWAYS have a meal in the fridge for 2 that only takes 30-45 minutes to whip up. Give HelloFresh a try! Here’s $35 off your first box on me! Visit http://bit.ly/1PlizLn or use MIZZFIT at checkout on HelloFresh.com. Even when I'm home alone and hungry, I can cook a HelloFresh meal and save the 2nd portion for my lunch or dinner the next day. Last night I made HelloFresh's Carmelized Onion Burger but instead of fries, the recipe included a roasted cauliflower side. It was SO GOOD! I only ate half the bun and the wonderful part about the meal is that the portions are JUST RIGHT. I...

My Road Trip with Ford

The Fall of 2015, I had the most amazing time road tripping throughout the Tri-State area with Ford Motors in a 2015 Ford Escape. We filmed all my fit adventures while on the road and gave away road trips and incredible lease deals to people who entered the #WhereToNow sweepstakes. The concept of the beautifully captured campaign was that an exciting adventure could be as close as your backyard. You don't have to travel far-away to experience something new, healthy and active. We often take for granted the wonderful parks and historical sights within the region we live in. These are great places to work out and find inspiration. So why not make a day trip of it? The #WhereToNow campaign is no longer viewable on YouTube or TV (my road trip was all over the news!) as it came to an end in December 2015. But please check out these 15-second mini-clips and let me know what you think. What kind of fit road trips have you been on lately and what tips do you have to share?...

Is a personal trainer worth it? My experience at NYSC.

Back in the day when you joined a gym, they'd throw in a few personal training sessions with your new membership. It was supposed to wet your appetite for personal training and help you ease into your new gym-life. Every trainer I got was just going through the motions, fully knowing I'd disappear on him or her once my free sessions were up. It was quite the self-fulfilling prophecy. I disappeared. But who wants to invest in personal training when your trainer doesn't give a damn? And can you blame them for not caring when they know new members are taking them for joyride? The world of fitness has changed a lot since those days, and so have gym-goers. People are investing more of their paycheck in health & wellness, and seem to be more committed to their workouts than ever. A few years ago The New York Times reported that some women were studio-hopping, taking more than 1 class a day to get their fix. Wow! Now that's a passion for fitness! It's the kind of enthusiasm...

HelloFresh + Bianca Jade

HelloFresh is how I learned to efficiently and deliciously cook. I never took an interest in making my own meals until I was 30. And once I became interested, the hassle of grocery shopping quickly became a burden, reigniting my laziness to order delivery or takeout. It's crazy to think you can be so gung-ho about fitness but then not take the best care of yourself when it comes to food prep. But I'll admit, that was ME...until I started to see my laziness take its toll on my body. The body I was working so hard to sculpt in the gym, sheesh! When you dine out frequently or constantly resort to delivery and takeout, you have no idea what's going into your food. Most likely, it's going to add up to lots of sodium, butter and unnecessary sugars and oils. As they say, ABS ARE MADE IN THE KITCHEN. I'm not a nutritionist or health coach but a lot of my friends are (with best selling books to boot!). So let's just say I've learned a thing or two from them, starting with how...
