Pink did it at the Grammy Awards. You can do it at the gym. The Aerial Silk Workout.


Pink's breathtaking aerial silk performance at the 2010 Grammy Awards could be your next new workout. Aerial fitness continues to grow in popularity with group and private classes being offered in gyms throughout the country. I was lucky enough to experience Aerial Silk Conditioning at Hype Gym in NYC. Check out my workout was so much fun!




Aerial Silk Conditioning begins with a brief cardio warm-up, followed by stretching and strengthening with a focus on core and lower abs. Once you're warmed up it's time to get wrapped up in long, colorful silks that hang securely from the cieling. Before your feet even leave the ground, you'll learn how to tie, wrap and grip the silks correctly. You’ll learn how to climb, foot lock, slide, invert, swing and spiral your body into beautiful, athletic moves. Before you know it, you'll be flipping and somersaulting your way up and down the silks.


Wanna attend the world's largest yoga event? Win a trip to NYC for Yoga At the Great Lawn.


I can't promise they'll behave themselves but I can promise it will be a large gathering of my fellow New Yorkers who wish to clear their minds and salute the sun. And oh yeah, there's that fitness component too. It can't hurt to check it out...what if you win?

YOGA AT THE GREAT LAWN - the world's largest yoga event, EVER, hosted by Flavorpill and JetBlue.

If you win, you receive a round trip to NYC, a hotel room at the Standard, VIP access to the event in Central Park and FREE American Apparel clothes. So unfair!! This is the one time I can say I wish I didn't live in NYC so that I could hack into Flavorpill's top secret computers and rig their contest in my favor. Oh well.


How mizzFIT got her groove back with Slinky Dance from Christina Belly Dance NYC


It's kind of weird talking about myself in the 3rd person, but yes, I lost my groove or perhaps I just misplaced it. Either way, I got it back with a phenomenal belly dance workout called Slinky Dance. The term slinky accurately describes belly dance movement and it's also the nickname that was given to Slinky Dance founder, Christine Busini, while starring in the Broadway show Sugar Babies with Mickey Rooney. The nickname stuck throughout her dance career, inspiring her to create the Christina Belly Dance School to raise women's self-esteem, internally and physically. Her dance-fitness workout integrates abdominal and cardiovascular exercise with sensual choreography to summon the provocative temptress you've buried within. The 90 minute curve defining class will re-connect you to your femininity and sensuality.

Then again, you may think you're doing alright in this department because you recently made a purchase at Victoria's Secret OR you reincarnated Kim...

Runners Always Show Up, Especially for Haiti

Runners are insane motivators. That's why 9,423 runners and walkers crossed the Run for Haiti finish line last weekend in NYC, raising over $400,000 for the city's Haiti Relief Fund. It was cold, the sun was out and everyone was psyched to run. On race day, NYRR president and CEO Mary Wittenberg announced:

People said we were crazy to try to put this race together so quickly, and we said, ‘You don’t know runners.’ With our partners at Parks, we found an open date, and we all worked together to make it happen. (source)

Run for Haiti isn't over yet! You have until Feb 24th (tomorrow!) to sign-up and race in your hometown -- CLICK THIS LINK TO GET INVOLVED -- it's only 4 miles and I know you can do it!

A few of my pics from the race:
