FLAB-U-LESS for Fall


Stephanie Levinson believes in CHANGE. That’s why she created FLAB-U-LESS, the ultimate flab-busting, calorie burning fitness class.

I wanted this to be a class that really addressed woman’s dissatisfaction with their workouts and bodies.

From my observations, it seems they want their workouts to be more effective, and they want to focus on certain areas of the body they feel are flabbier than they should be.

Too many group fitness classes fall short of a high enough intensity level to cause any significant body changes. NOT COOL (says me).

When you’re putting in time at the gym, you want to see results. Stephanie is the queen of results in my book. She structures her classes with exercise circuits that are constantly changing to keep motivation and results high. These exercises focus on body parts that everybody seems to worry about. Don’t be embarrassed to tell her which areas you’d like to target. She gets these requests all the time...

The Human Race. Are you in?


I just signed up to run the Nike+ Human Race in NYC and now I’m going to recruit you!! The race is a 10K (6.2 miles) and takes place on Saturday, October 24th at 8AM in Prospect Park, Brooklyn. If you don’t live in NYC, you can run the Human Race in any of these cities.

Nike+ gear is not required for the Human Race. If you have Nike+, you can track and sync your run on race day to your Nike+ account and compare your results against everyone else running. The registration fee is $20 and $5 from every entry will go directly to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. If you’re getting ready for the NYC marathon in November, this could be a fun practice run and a nice break from Central Park’s training loops.

Natural Do-Gooder


Natural Fitness has caught my attention. They make premium yoga, pilates and strength training products that are eco-friendly. For every one of their products sold, Natural Fitness funds the planting of a tree to improve the condition of our atmosphere. The company is gaga for eco—their website and email are even solar powered. Wow, this green trend is infectious. I’m starting to realize the prevalence of sustainable workout products and it looks like these greenies are on to something.

They use environmentally friendly material like bamboo for their yoga and pilates block, and natural rubber from rubber trees for their yoga mats. Their fitness products are quite nice and sell at high end retailers. Prices are extremely reasonable, especially if you buy directly from Natural Fitness online. How can you go wrong with a company that wants to offset its own eco-footprint? This is a company that cares and injects love into every product they make.

I dig the...

Green Your Workout


Everything’s going green these days, even fitness detergent. I spotted WIN Green, a new eco-friendly sport detergent, at Jack Rabbit in NYC. I’m familiar with lots of sport detergents but this was the first environmentally friendly one to cross my path. I snapped a pic, poked around online and found that WIN Green has a high consumer approval rating.

When it comes to athletic gear, it’s important to use an effective sport detergent to make sure everything gets 100% clean. Many of you probably use regular laundry detergent and consider sport detergent an unnecessary expense. I can understand that, but if you exercise a lot and care about the longevity of your fitness apparel it’s worth the extra $7 that WIN Green costs. Sport detergents like WIN Green work harder than regular detergents to remove sweat induced bacteria and stink.

WIN Green caught my attention because it preserves the condition of fitness garments while preserving the environment. Its...
