HEEL-SIDE

whY 3 you ask?

Well, besides three being my favorite number, the number three also happens to be the perfect number to play a little game of Frisbee at Sheep Meadow (two can get a little boring but three spices it up a bit). There is nothing I love more than burning calories when you don’t even realize it. Glam up your game a bit with this Y-3 take on a fashioned Frisbee. Don’t

Warriors of Radness

First thought when looking at the below images: That’s not a woman! Well, you’re right, this is a photo of a man, silly! My latest obsession – ‘anything and everything NEON’ – has me obsessed with this company: Warriors of Radness. WOR, based in LA, embodies a unique surf-city lifestyle point-of-view. WOR’s philosophical spirit is rooted in an unwavering, imaginative idea that modern beach style should be as diverse and

Chanel Goes Extreme

Well, it seems as though I have died and gone to heaven! Extreme Chanel heaven that is. Today I came across Chanel sporting equipment (my life will never be the same). Never before have I pondered placing Chanel and gnarly in the same sentence…. but now the two go hand in hand. Chanel has once again made the lives of the rich and famous a bit more chic. Chanel’s sport collection

Fathers Day

A shout out to all the Dads out there…. Although the ‘day’ is over I hope it was wonderful and filled with lots of love. Happy Fathers Day M.D. Old as she was, she still missed her daddy sometimes. Fathers Day Quote by: Gloria Naylor.

Check It

Shortaaaaaa – Nike Training Compression Shorts are some of my fav’s to work it out in and sweat it out in. If you have never heard of the clothing article know as the ‘compression short’ before this very moment –  think new age spandex – as in new fabrics/colors/and gym clothing acceptance – defined by dictionary.com as; form-fitting garments usually worn by athletes. When worn they cover the athlete’s waist to

Do It Better in the Water

I may offer a bit of a biased opinion when it comes to working out in the water. With a Mom who is a water aerobics instructor and brother who swam for a nationally ranked USA swim club, to a wake-board junkie for a Dad, I have spent many hours working it out in the water. Weather doing laps, boarding, or surfing, you need a suit that will stay in

Make A Splash

With a month dedicated solely to sweat, why not play it cool in the pool? The water might not be the first place that comes to mind when thinking of shaping up and slimming down,— but perhaps it should be. No other workout burns calories, boosts metabolism, and firms every muscle in your body (without putting stress on your joints) better than swimming. A water workout can whittle a sexy, sculpted silhouette.

New Wave

Lucky Mag – June 2010 Issue – New Wave spread has some token looks that were to good not to share…..As the weather gets hotter, they have taken inspiration from the vibrant cool of Cali surf culture. This sunny Cali style wont break your bank – but it still down right hot. Thanks Lucky Mag!

A dollar… dollar… is all you need!

I said I need dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need…And if I share with you my story would you share your dollar with me… I know, I know… enough with the song quotes already (thank you ALOE BLACK); but this is a perfect intro to one of my favorite sweaty places in NYC. Is only a dollar – that’s right (1$) donation based only studio – suggested class

Music Sweat Best Bet

Music could not be more important to me when I am working out. The right music can not only put me in the right workout mindset, but it can give me that extra push I need to step it up. I always seem to take classes that have good music. I don’t know how important it is in your workout but it’s vital to a kick myself into shape workout

Pump Up the Jam

Did I just reference Jock Jams VOLUME 1 (Oh Yes…Yes I did!) Because we all know…sometimes were just not in the go all out – push it – pump it up mood. The workout mood that is…and we all need a little kick in the right direction now and then, and what better way to jump-start your workout than some pump it up jams? Brought to you by none other
