The Noho Lab by Lululemon

Some people love it. Some people hate it. The all day workout wear ensemble, that some people never seem to take off. Now you can take it off, take it all off… and try this on for size. Lululemon high-end, beyond-the-gym Lab offshoot opened their second outpost, first in the U.S., in New York’s NoHo neighborhood this week.  Each store concept features store design and merchandising specific to that geographic location. A commonality however

Get a grip all the way to Namaste

Our June sweat session is almost a wrap…. on that note I will bring you one of my sweaty essentials I will not leave home without. Jade Yoga has turned my yogi upside-down, and can turn you too as you say goodbye to slipping and sliding. Jade’s fusion mat (that comes in extra long for us extra tall – thanks for being giant friendly!) is made with open cell, natural rubber


Watering HOLE

Your body is made up of 75 percent water as is the planet we live on…coincidence? I think not! This month’s SWEAT SESSION is almost over. With the sweltering weather I hope you all have been staying hydrated (putting back in what you have been putting out)? The water bottles are out my friends – eco savvy and well designed, because everyone is doing it! My friend and personal trainer Paul


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 as; form-fitting garments usually worn by athletes. When worn they cover the athlete’s waist to


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.


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


You Spin My Head Right Round – Right Round.

She’s amazing, fire blazing…Stephanie Spangler’s spin classes that is. Her up-beat music and challenging spin workouts consist of various workout routines that leave her students dripping sweat and begging for more. There literally is a waiting list to get into her classes! Sweating it out in her class is an understatement. Her body belongs on a poster… this stellar physique can be attributed to her extensive background in competitive sports


LULULEMON ATHLETICA goes sweat savvy

If you don’t know what LULULEMON is, you should! Over the past nine years Lululemon Athletica has become the fastest growing athletic apparel company in their market. Founder Chip Wilson had the right idea developing technical athletic apparel for yoga, running, dancing, and most other sweaty pursuits designed specifically by athletes for athletes. What else could you want from a company, oh let me think….earth conscious (75% of fibers used


Make A Mark – (On Your Calendar, That Is)

I woke this A.M. and immediately checked my email (something I rarely do…I am not a morning person to say the least, but I had an intuition) to find a long email from my big sis.  It’s funny how sisters can see the big picture – as in, “Eva you need to find your niche – you have writer’s block: this is what you need to do.” So thanks to Carol
