Boing with Kangoo: A Dance Party Workout With Bounce Taught By Mario Green in NYC


Are you having fun at your gym? If not, it's time for you to Boing! Crunch NYC offers a class called Boing with Kangoo and it's hands down the most fun I've ever had at a gym. I'm serious. Boing with Kangoo is a laugh-out-loud-jump-for-joy-feel-good kind of workout. It's a crazy adrenaline rush, kind of like jumping on a trampoline while wearing roller blades (not exactly and not quite as scary, but close). Check your ego at the door and channel your best Richard Simmons because once you forget about looking cool you'll start having fun. Now on to the good stuff...

What's this Boing thing all about and who's this Mario guy?

Boing with Kangoo is a low impact, cardio-based group fitness class using Kangoo Jumps (read about them here). You'll hop, jog, skip, jump, and even shimmy your way through a choreographed routine that's easy to follow and set to a dance party soundtrack that rocks. If you think Kangoo Jumps are wild, then instructor Mario Green is even...

Fitness Glove Couture


The best fitness gloves marry fashion and function. They look hot on your hands and save you from the following: 1) unsightly callused skin, 2) fungi that breeds on sweaty athletic equipment (like yoga mats), 3) discomfort from impact, and  4) total embarrassment from losing your grip on weights or equipment while working out. Don't let your workout irritate your hands. Accessorize with fitness gloves and keep your hands feeling soft and looking feminine. As you may have already guessed, my favorite gloves are featured above and listed below.

Why? Because I told her so! Check out her blog for how to achieve a high class fitness regimen without ever having to spend a dime. Yep, all for FREE! Somehow, some way she hunts down free classes and trial memberships in whatever city she happens to be living in...right now it's NYC. This girl's got moxie. What's not to love?


A snippet from Julia's blog post follows below but definitely click the link above for the full Buns of Steal experience.

Facility: Pure Yoga

Money Saved: can't even estimate, because yoga here is limited to members ($150/month membership); but, if you're a member of (the dreaded) Equinox, you can drop in on a class for $25 a day.

Kangoo Jump Like The Kardashians



As if you really need 33 reasons to strap these babies on. Kangoo Jumps are HOT...and you probably didn't even know it. They are popular everywhere...well, everywhere except for here in the U.S. But now that the Kardashian sisters are bouncing around in them perhaps we'll see this European fitness trend take off. When I first read about Kangoo Jumps, I thought Oh no, rollerblades 2.0!! But thank god, that's not the case. Kangoos are low impact, rebound sport shoes originally developed in Switzerland for joggers and now designed for all ages and fitness levels. They're supposed to be safe on your joints and versatile for exercise. They're currently used for power walking, cross-country jogging & running, group fitness, athletic training, rehabilitation & injury prevention, dance and children's recreation. Kangoos are a laugh-out-loud crowd pleaser. Everyone likes to bounce, right? So why haven't they hit it big in the U.S.?

Here's the problem:...

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...
