Enter to win this Athleta Bag!

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

She is back and live ladies & gentleman!!  That’s right—after two weeks off I am back to my weekly Vlogs and boy did I miss all of you! There has been some major stress in my life recently both wonderful and terrible but I can honestly say my focus and attitude remains intact and I am committed to being your one-stop shop for fitness news, pop culture snark and best of all—giveaways!

This week you can enter to win an item I received from a totally rad goodie bag from the amazing Athleta fashion show.

Want to hear more? Well, let’s dive into my latest news bits and then we will get right on it. Yay!

  • Yoga Blocks With Attitude/Crunch’s Newest Workout: Several weeks ago I attended a new class offered by Crunch gyms in New York City on behalf of Fit Bottomed Girls called B-Method created by celebrity trainer Terri Walsh that utilizes yoga blocks in an innovative way. You can read all about it here!
  • Book vs. Movie Episode 4: The insane partnership of the “Margos” continues with our latest episode of our Book vs. Movie podcast.  This week in honor of the film’s 20th anniversary we decided to delve into all things “Gump” by talking about the differences between the book and movie version of Forrest Gump by author Winston Groom.  How different are they from each other you ask? Whoo boy—they are worlds apart but each has their own unique charm. If you have some time—click on the link and take a listen. We are hoping to have them available on Stitcher and iTunes soon (fingers crossed!)

Also—please make sure to ‘like” our Facebook page. (Thank you!)

  • Pongo Power! Some of you may be aware that I am a trainer but did you know that I am NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) certified trainer? Well, yes I am and it is with great pleasure to announce that I am now training at the NASM-based only studio– Pongo Power with two locations in Brooklyn—yay!  Pongo Power was started by Elizabeth Pongo who is just about the smartest and funniest person I have met in some time. Elizabeth started with a small studio in Park Slope and has since developed a loyal clientele who wait for weeks to get an appointment with her.

I am now training at her Flatbush Avenue studio so if you are interested in a free movement assessment—be sure to reach out to me on Twitter @BrooklynFitChik!

  • Wanderlust Yoga Festival Brooklyn: Speaking of cool places in Brooklyn—Prospect Park will be a whole day of “Om” goodness with the arrival of the Wanderlust Yoga Festival taking place Saturday, September 13th with a day’s worth of yoga, meditation and music. Tickets can be purchased at and I plan to attend for sure so if you looking are for a “sun salutation” buddy that day—reach out to me on Twitter (again @BrooklynFitChik…)
  • Athleta Fashion Show: This past week I was lucky enough to attend the Athleta “Crush of Adrenaline” fashion show that featured real athletes, dancers and acrobats as models. Honestly, I have lived in New York City for years and have been to my fair share of runway events but this one really knocked my socks off. Read (and see) what I am talking about in this excellent feature from USA Today. Amazing stuff! This week’s giveaway is the gym bag I received from Athleta in my goodie bag so check out the clip below to see how you can win!

Now on to this week’s Vlog and giveaway details!
