ECA NYC Convention Welcomes Fitness Lovers

Fitness conventions were once created for fitness instructors, buyers and business owners but that's no longer the case. This March, the ECA World Fitness convention invites fitness enthusiasts (in addition to the pros) to come take classes  and explore the expo.

Why go? Because you're a fitness junkie obsessed with trying all the new and hottest, most effective workouts. Because the ECA is where fitness innovations go to become known. Because you want to brush shoulders with the ever-growing fitness and wellness community. Because it's cold outside, you have nothing else going on could use a good sweat to warm up. Shall I go on?

What to expect? 3 days of classes from world famous teachers, choreographers, innovators. Classes vary from 1 hour to 1.5 hours and continuously run from 7:30AM - 5PM.

Best way to do it? To sample the ECA without sacrificing your entire weekend, go for the Day Pass/Dance Package which gives you full access to all classes on Sunday, March...

Thank You, Norma Kamali, and All the Woman Who Empower Me!

This is it! My favorite celebrity interview so far! We’ve got to live our lives by our own calendar and pay the next woman forward with a lot of insight. Gobble up this episode of my  “Women Who Empower” series featuring fashion designer and wellness guru, Norma Kamali.

Women like Norma fill my head and heart with amazing love, courage and ambition. I mean, just look at what she’s created! It’s a mega-brand comprised of fashion, fitness and wellness. And on top of that, she’s nice, introspective and thoughtful!


I’m so lucky and thankful to know and learn from such smart, successful and giving women as I wander down this path called “my life”.  If you make it through the entire video (which I hope you do because Norma makes some powerful points), you will come across this message from me:

It took many years of growing up for me to be able to write this. Mostly, because I’m competitive by nature. I like being the...

What's Wonderful About Wanderlust and Why I'd Go Back Again

The Wanderlust Festival Turned 5 This Summer (2013)

It was finally my time to go. So I headed out to the festival in Copper Mountain, Colorado. Not gonna lie, I was fresh off a breakup, looking to jet far out of town for some air and space. Sometimes you just need to get away. But I wasn't expecting the weekend I ended up having. You can walk through life or you can flow through it. Check out Wanderlust through my lens in case you're thinking about going next year...

So Just A Little Background...

It was the start of July and I was coming off a relationship that had been doomed since February. I was tired and sick...sick of not being happy. I figured a work-trip mixed with a little forced romance would soothe my soul. Doesn't it always? I set off to report on the "fitness fashion happening at Wanderlust" with my press pass and a former ex-boyfriend turned friend (with benefits) in tow. What can I say? He was game.

We arrived to Copper Mountain as star-crossed...
