Boston was recently named one of the healthiest cities in America according to BetterDoctor.com. Yes, many different publications and websites make their own rankings but Boston is always in the top. The criteria used for this list included: Population data about physical fitness (exercise rates, eating habits, chronic health problems and disease rates, access to […]

I felt like it was Christmas Eve last night because I was so excited to wake up this morning and see how much snow had fallen. The total did not disappoint or thwart my efforts to workout. Yes. You read that correct. I woke up right at 8am despite everything in town being closed. There […]

I’ve been meaning to try Burn 60 for a couple years. It’s a studio in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California featuring strength training and treadmill intervals. It sounded like Barry’s Bootcamp and knowing Michelle Lovitt one of the original trainers, I knew it had to be great. I signed up using ClassPass the […]

Things I miss about college include living next door to my girlfriends, swapping clothes with my girlfriends, having the energy to go out hard 3-4 nights a week and having absolutely nothing to do during vacation breaks.  I am not complaining but when you work for yourself you do not have time off, especially paid […]

This year, I headed up to Portland, Maine for Thanksgiving with Roomie and his family. After teaching at 9am, taking Derek’s class at Barry’s at 10:15 and then teaching at noon, we drove up in the middle of the snow storm to Vacationland. It looked more like Christmas than Thanksgiving when we arrived! Despite the […]

Wellness travel is one of the hottest tourism trends so when I was invited to check out Hilton Head Health Resort in South Carolina, I happily accepted the offer. I love to travel, eat healthy food and exercise, so why not?  Based on my research, the resort appeared to have 3 tracks guests could follow […]

When you think of portion control, you think of your fist, a thumb or deck of cards to correctly learn how much food you should be eating. We know how much we are “supposed” to eat but we just can’t seem to stick to that magic number. The USDA says Americans eating 500 more calories […]

In preparation for the Holidays, I want you guys to be energized and well hydrated. Next week, the week leading up to Thanksgiving, I will be on Hydration Patrol delivering “The Gift of Hydration” to twenty organizations (clubs, teams, charities, non-profit or offices) throughout Boston with Essentia and Health Warrior. Why am I doing this? […]
