A Hidden Gem on my #WhereToNow Road Trip

I’m not one of those fitness girls that doesn’t eat. Healthy, yummy food is how I reward myself. On my road trip to fit with Tri-State Ford, I’m finding great places to nosh post-workout. I’m venturing to hidden gems in my 2015 Ford Escape to celebrate Tri-State Ford’s “Where To Now?” adventure and sweepstakes! Being on the road over the summer and fall has been magnificent. I’ve logged a lot of ME-time in my Ford Escape on my way to run in the woods HERE and to find balance HERE. Now, I’m looking forward to spending some quality time with a friend. The scenic route is a must as I think about all the things I have to catch my friend, RJ, up on. She and I are both self-made, independent women. So we talk about everything from relationships to business. We’re all about empowering each other. It’s easy to get lost in thought when you’re driving, which is why I’m relieved to have the 2015 Ford Escape’s SYNC 3 easy-to-use navigation system to keep...

Road Trip to Fit with Tri-State Ford

This summer, I’m exploring the Tri-State with Tri-State Ford. I’m discovering new spots to work out, sharing my favorite places to unwind and scoring face-time with friends. I’m doing it all in a 2015 Ford Explorer to celebrate Tri-State Ford’s “Where To Now?” adventure and summer sweepstakes! So come take a seat and join me as I head out on this fit road trip. One of the best parts of going on a road trip adventure is everything that you see along your drive. Things that seem so ordinary become quite majestic from up close. I’ll show you what it’s like on the other side of this bridge! You’ll feel a different kind of energy inspiring you to move and push past your limits. This trip will take us to some pretty amazing places where nature makes you feel empowered and free. Like Fort Lee Historic Park in New Jersey, the Croton Aqueduct and the ever quaint village of Tarrytown.  It will all come alive in a series of posts and...

Don't Crunch! Twist Your Abs.

Swimsuit season is here and your abs are DYING to see the sun. But are you ready to show them off? Here's a great way to do that... TWIST AND TURN YOUR ABS INTO FITNESS MODEL SHAPE! Yes, it's totally possible AND you don't have to do hundreds upon hundreds of reps to get the kind of abs I'm talking about. Twisting is far from a new concept but rather an alternative to the abdominal crunching you're used to. Twisting and turning is how I work out my abs and I wouldn't be blogging about it if I wasn't seeing results. Why should you TWIST? Crunches aren't always good for you. The repetitive up and down crunching of the abs can actually put a strain on your back and spinal discs, creating injury down the road. Think of your body like a credit card. The more you bend it back and forth over time...SNAP! Well...not literally, but you get the point. You want to give your back and neck a break. A lot of people pull on their necks during crunching which can...

Lotus Flower On Fleek

Lotus flower designs are constantly seen on yoga clothing and accessories and they always look the same. The flower is soft, subtle and BORING! adidas has taken the complete opposite approach and given the lotus flower a makeover. Actually, let's call it a RESURRECTION. The lotus flower is now bold, proud and sharp looking, which I personally think translates better to fitness and sport. The new Lotus Print collection by adidas Originals is urban, striking and feminine in a cool, unapologetic way. During my little photoshoot in NYC's Meatpacking District, locals and tourists alike kept pointing out my gear to their group. I had to smile and agree--can't help but love these pieces! The lotus flower in real life is exquisite. It 100% deserves a beautiful graphic representation. The reason yogis love this flower so much is because of its meaning and ties to Buddhism. The symbolism of the lotus is purity, spiritual awakening and faithfulness. In it's natural...

I'm in the Lacroix Water Ads!

I used to write and design ads for a living and now, I'm in one! Check me out in Lacroix Sparkling Water's new campaign called "Start A Healthy Relationship", which can be seen on the Lacroix website and in several fitness & health publications like Oxygen Magazine. It's totally blowing my mind but at the same time I keep asking myself: why should this feel surreal? I earned it. Since May of 2009, I've been on a mission to take everything I learned and experienced from my advertising career and turn into something truly positive that will help women embrace health & wellness. And here I am, in an ad for a beverage that I truly love, representing that movement. I'm overjoyed and so thankful. I couldn't see into the future years ago and never knew what would come of my crazy idea to build Mizzfit.com and become an influencer within the health industry. I was so freakin' scared but I did it. So I want all of you to know that anything is possible with hard work,...

Waitlisted to Workout? My Solution!

It’s a sweat and be seen dynamic in the fitness world these days. People head to boutique studios in droves instead of local membership-style gyms. Stylized express-fitness classes are where it's at, and everybody wants a spot! Even my hunky Australian officemate who is the epitome of a guy's guy goes to SoulCycle and has a ClassPass acount. When he's off to a class, I get serious FOMO (fear of missing out). It's like he's going to a party I haven't been invited to...so strange. People don’t just show up to class…they show up wearing designer sportswear and the latest in tracking accessories. As a fitness trend expert, I’m thrilled to see this movement thrive, but I go crazy when I can’t sign up for a class because it's completely SOLD OUT! I'm given the option to add my name to the waitlist...that's already 17 people long. Nope. Not gonna do it. I shouldn't have to wait in a virtual line to work out. Sooooo I teamed up with Lucy Activewear to go BACK TO BASICS...
