A New Spin on Spinning


I'm not a die-hard spinner. I don't own cycling shoes or biking capris with padding built-in the rear. Simply put, I'm a girl who likes a challenging full body workout and that's exactly what I got when I took my first SoulCycle class. SoulCycle takes the concept of traditional spinning and completely shakes it up. It's a powerful workout that goes beyond alternating positions in and out of the saddle. You'll dance, twist out abdominals, lift weights and do a vinyasa on your bike (all while spinning). You'll tone more than just your legs, but I can guarantee they'll feel the burn. 

SoulCycle kickstarts with a killer pop music soundtrack and inspirational coaching by hard-bodied instructors who are celebrities in their own right. My favorite part of class is when spin master, Stacey Griffith, encourages you to make up your own move on the bike. She shouts over the music:

It doesn't matter what you look like. No one cares.

Long-Awaited Barefoot Running Study Finds Sneakers Are Harmful

I'm a proponent of barefoot running but only on pristine sandy beaches...and even then there's no guarantee you won't come across something prickly. On my last barefoot run in the Mayan Riviera, I nearly ran over a piece of broken glass. Luckily I was paying attention, but that's not always the case especially when I'm running to music.

Sarah Dassault, a fitness correspondent and producer for, fears the worst when it comes to barefoot running. I don't blame her.

I've written about barefoot training before (READ IT HERE) which I think is beneficial to developing under-used muscles in feet. I'm a huge fan of yoga, pilates and martial arts which are all brilliant ways to exercise these muscles without going to extremes. Our feet are conditioned to wearing sneakers and whether it's good or bad for them in the long run, it's what they're used to. If you...
