Yoga-Pilates-Sculpting with Kristin McGee at Pure East NYC


WHO is Kristin McGee?

Kristin McGee is a yoga & pilates superstar and the reigning queen of mind-body DVD fitness. I adore her because she's smart sweet as can be. And just look at her body--it's seriously aspirational! Kristin teaches yoga and pilates classes for sculpting and toning at NYC's top gyms. She's a very well-respected pro who really knows her craft. That's why everyone in the health & wellness biz wants to collaborate with her, including Bethany Frankel of SkinnyGirl.

WHAT is this workshop all about? WHERE is it? And WHEN?

It's called Trouble Spot Yoga with Kristin McGee and it's a one time only workshop at Pure East NYC this Saturday, June 12, 2010 from 4:30pm - 6:00pm.

You'll indulge in a vinyasa style practice with an emphasis on shaping up the arms, abs and thighs, with some fun Pilates style sculpting without distracting from the yoga sequences. Sounds amazing, right? Well I can assure you it will be...I've taken a few of...

How to stick to your workout when Aunt Flow comes ‘round - 6 EASY TIPS


Aunt Flow will do anything to sabotage your workout but don't let the old hag win. Follow these 6 easy tips to stay on track.


Listen to your body before you decide to hit the gym. Are you feeling tired, bloated, anxious, or a little depressed? Are you having more food cravings than usual? If so, exercising during your period can actually decrease these symptoms. 

Working out can help:  

Decrease the pain of cramps by releasing endorphins (the body's natural painkillers), increasing blood flow, and by loosening muscles in your lower abdomen, back, and thighs.

Rid your body of excess water so you aren’t bloated.

Improve and stabilize your mood, making you less anxious, angry, or depressed.  (source - Liza Barnes, Health Educator)

If you’re bent over in pain, nauseous or your head is throbbing, take the day off. Exercise can intensify severe menstrual symptoms....

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.


Work out. Eat BBQ. Don't think twice about it. Has Crunch gym lost its mind?


Crunch is throwing an indoor FIT-barbecue and you're invited. Stop by any Crunch gym (nationwide locations here) to partake in the day-long festivities. Non-members are welcome and can workout for free. BBQ and fitness, who would've thought? But then again, Crunch enjoys being the wily, red-headed step child on the gym circuit and apparently they're amped for Memoral Day weekend. I can respect that.

Here's what's in store for you:

Healthy barbecue treats
Personal training demos
Special group fitness classes
Live DJ pumping fresh beats
Sweet offers on membership  

Members, bring your non-member friends to the party and tell them that (-insert sexy celeb name here-) works out at your Crunch location.

If you bring a friend and they join on the spot, you'll get $50 towards your dues! Keep in mind that Crunch will not take responsibility for repairing your friendship. But who knows...William Hung could very well be a Crunch member. And last I...
