After visiting SoulCycle Chestnut Hill during its opening weekend, I left unsatisfied. I wanted the NYC SC intensity and got a “meh” mediocre workout. I wrote about it and SC insisted I give the studio another try. I think everyone deserves second and even third chance so I took them up on their offer for [...]

Happy hump day, everyone! I decided to do another What I Ate Wednesday post and share where I have been working out since I’m testing out ClassPass in Boston this month. Breakfast this week has been a simple green juice that I make in my blender. I posted a similar recipe on Monday but today [...]

I indulged in Thanksgiving with little regard to what I put in my mouth, feeling satisfied and in control but excited [...]

I tried Flywheel, a stadium seating type indoor cycling class in Miami back in March. I loved the class especially the Torq board and competing against the other clients but was slightly underwhelmed by the intensity. I was however eager to give another instructor a shot at my heart. When I heard the NYC based [...]

The fitness scene in Boston is changing! When I first moved here 7 years ago, you joined a big box gym. For me, that was Boston Sports Club or Gold’s Gym, the affordable options for new grads. Today, there are barre studios in most neighborhoods and cycling is the next trend to take over. Recycle [...]
