Hey Gang! Just in case you still have not heard the news but very soon Fitness will be digital-only so this will be one of the last times I will be reviewing it in print form. (Sad Panda alert!)  I am most unhappy to see the magazine go away but very grateful that we will still get some excellent content them from them online.

Anyhoo—let’s talk about the April issue which is on newsstands now!

What Do We Learn This Month in Fitness?

“Built for Speed”

This looks like an excellent strength circuit from As One Fitness (the trainer is George Vafiades) designed to help with muscle imbalances. Perfect for runners & cyclists and it only takes 20 minutes!

Built for Speed fitness 001

“Ladies Who Crunch”

Did you know that working moms are less likely to workout during the day than working dads because of the primping time it takes after a sweat session? (I can totally relate to being worried about looking a hot mess afterwards.)

Here we get a super quick (5 minutes) circuit developed by Mike Strevel from DavidBartonGym Limelight where you try to do any many reps as possible or AMRAP.

Ladies Who Crunch 001

“Trim in 20”

I am sensing a theme here—quick workouts are better than no workouts at all and this one from Brett Hoebel (The Biggest Loser Season 11) requires just a band to get your heart rate up.

Express workout Fitness magazine 001

“Soothe Moves”

If you suffer with tight hamstrings and a general lack of flexibility (meekly raising my hand here) these “four essential stretches for runners” from yoga instructor Tiffany Cruikshank should be added to your stretching repertoire.

Stretches for Runners Fitness mag 001

And now the rest of this issue of Fitness:

  • “Time Flies” I have had the same Polar watch for years now and think it’s time to trade it in for something jazzier. Fitness offers quite a few suggestions here that give me the “I wants.”
  • “Run Stronger Run Longer” Spring has sprung which means it is time to get some new running shoes and there are tons of great options featured here.

Overall Grade:

A  Excellent workout ideas plus some fun shopping pages made me happy this month!

What is Happening with Fitness magazine?

I am not sure if you all have heard but Meredith Publishing bought Shape magazine so Fitness starting in May will be digital-only. That means this will be the next-to-the last issue of Fitness reviewed on this Blog. This is a sad day but let’s be grateful that we will still get new content from the editors in the future—it will just be online.

Anyhoo—let’s talk about the March issue which is on newsstands now!

What Do We Learn This Month in Fitness?

“Chisel and Zizzle”

I am dying to learn how to use ropes in my classes so I loved this express workout from Gold’s Gym trainer Adam Friedman that give six moves using ropes.

Express Workout 001

“Hot Stuff: The Goods We’re Obsessing Over Now”

Fitness has a whole page here filled with cute gear that gets me excited for Spring. The Cole Haan slippers are especially divine!

Hot stuff 001

“Go Vertical”

If you are looking to kick up your workout—try taking the stairs. Here we get two options (staircase vs. stairclimber) to get in a quick workout that gives fast results from Chris Powell.

Vertical Climb 001

“In the Hot Seat”

Four years ago I attempted a big change in my life by working at a standing desk (plus my wobble board to work on my core!) Sitting for hours a day is KILLING us and we need to act now in order to prepare office workers in the future.

Check out some of these options to make your office healthier!

Office gear 001 (1)

And now the rest of this issue of Fitness:

  • “Fake Wide Awake” I love lotions and potions and lately my skin has been looking dull so I liked this feature offering ideas to brighten my face.
  • “Get a Fierce Physique” Trainer and author Adam Rosante offers an excellent workout here that you can do very quickly and see results in no time.

Overall Grade:

B+ Some really great workouts are featured here (just wish they had more features!)

Fitness Goes Digital

Fitness Goes Digital

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

How are you all doing today? I have a whole bunch of news & notes to get you folks today and I will not waste a minute getting it to you. Don’t worry—the Vlog is back next week with a whole new giveaway!

Brooklyn Fit Chick News & Notes

  • Book Vs Movie Podcast: For those of you who are not familiar with it my friend Margo Porras of Shes Nacho Mama’s Blog and I co-host a podcast called “Book Vs. Movie” and you can subscribe to us on iTunes with this link https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/bookvsmovies-podcast/id954110320?mt=2. Our newest episode was all things Gone Girl (have you heard of it?) and boy did we have fun time dissecting both the film and the novel! The player is embedded below for your listening pleasure. Hope you like it!

 

  • Fit Bottomed Girls “Power Rock Climb” Playlist: One of my favorite “jobs” (honestly, I would do it for free cuz I have so much with it!) is coming up with playlists for the Fit Bottomed gals and this week I picked my favorite “Power Rock” songs to get me in the mood to climb a million hills. Let me know what you think of it!
  • Fitness Magazine Goes Digital: About ten years ago I was lucky enough to be in charge of publicity for YM, Fitness and Child It was the best job in the world and I was so proud to work for all of those brands. Well I am sad to say that Fitness magazine has been folded and will now be digital-only. The publisher of the magazine (Meredith publishing) bought Shape magazine (!) and now they will combine their audience. What does this mean? If you have a subscription to Fitness magazine, starting this May you will be getting Shape magazine instead. If you already get both? I have no idea! Fitness will now exist in digital format only at www.fitnessmagazine.com. Very sorry to hear that Fitness is closing but most of the staff will not remain on digital and all of their great content can still be found online. (Whew)

That’s all I have for today—keep checking back for news, reviews and playlists aplenty! Be sure to check back on Sunday, February 8th for my next Vlog post and giveaway!

January 2015

Who Is on the Cover of Fitness this Month?

Former Disney Teen Queen Demi Lovato who is about the most accomplished 22-year old I have ever read about in my entire life. Demi is on the road right now with a hyper successful singing career, is the brand ambassador for Sketchers, and has her own skin care line called “Devonne” by Demi. Oh AND she has her own line of hair extensions called Secret Color. (Whew!)

A few years ago things were not looking too good for Demi. Hospitalized for bipolar disorder and bulimia the young star was struggling with mental illness and her self-image. Thankfully she is on something of a health kick with exercise and clean eating being a priority for maintaining her positive mindset.

In her interview with Fitness Demi talks about her favorite workout tunes, how she motivates herself to get a sweat session going wn hen her motivation is low plus her advice for other young women struggling with personal issues.

 

What Do We Learn This Month in Fitness?

“Hot Arms & Abs”

This quickie workout from Barry’s Bootcamp trainer Noah Neiman will help you strengthen and tone your bod in record time.

arms workout 001

 

“Hot Stuff: The Goods We’re Obsessing Over Now ”

Fitness editors chose a whole page of the cutest fitness gear I can imagine. They all give me the “I wants!”

Hot stuff 001

 

Fitness Better Body Plan”

I love this workout from BFX Studio which uses their EMOM (Every Minute on the Minute) intervals. You can get a video to download onto your iPad by going to www.fitnessmagazine.com/digitalnow.

Better Body plan 001

 

And now the rest of this issue of Fitness:

  • “Stroke Your Metabolism” The Rowing machine is the new “hip” cardio workout to hit the gym and this sample workout will help you burn up to 500 calories an hour.
  • “On the Road to Diabetes?” Diabetes has affected far more friends and family members than I can count so I really want to get the word out there on what people need to look out for to stay healthy. This article highlights that diabetes can hit healthy & fit people as well so be on the lookout for the symptoms and just ditch the cheap sugar habit, people!

Overall Grade:

A- A few really good workouts and smart health stories always make me happy and the January issue did just that!.

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Ep 98: Fitness “Meet & Tweet,” “Tips of the Scales” Podcast, The Skinny Gut Diet Giveaway 10

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Episode #98

Tips of the Scale Podcast, New Tunes for Playlist, Fitness Meet & Tweet, People Who Leave Their Crap by the Stereo in Class

Plus: The Skinny Gut Diet Giveaway!

1 skinny gut

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I had a crazy busy week and will soon be going on a quick business trip but fear not—I am still posting as often as I can and offering a new book giveaway as well. Woo hoo! So let’s all take a deep breath and then dive right into my quick hits this week plus my SkinnyGutDiet.com book giveaway by Brenda Watson C.N.C.

  • Tips of the Scale Podcast: At Fitbloggin this past summer I was lucky enough to meet Sam Lomeli who hosts his own podcast Tips of the Scale. In case you are not familiar with him (and dammit—you should be!) Sam interviews an array of “real” people each episode who are either currently dealing with weight loss issues or have overcome them and want to inspire others. Many of my Fitbloggin pals have been on his show including Brandi of Diets in Review, Martinus of 300 Pounds and Running and Alan of Sweating Until Happy. Sam is a guy who really cares about helping people get healthy and I encourage you to subscribe to his show on iTunes and follow him on Twitter @TipsOfTheScale podcast.
  • Need New Tunes for Playlists! I realize I made this call-out before but I really meant it this time—I am desparate for new music to use in my group fitness classes. (Also on assignment for Fit Bottomed Girls and they are itchin for me to get off my Gluteus Maximus and get a few out to them as well!) So pretty please—just leave me one tune below in the comments section below. One song that makes you feel happy & motivated when working out. I would appreciate it SO much!
  • Fitness Magazine “Meet & Tweet Event” Where are my East Coast fitness Bloggers at? How many of you are going to be at the Fitness Magazine Meet & Tweet this week? It’s the THIRD annual event and I am lucky enough to have been invited to attend and I so want to make sure I say “hey” to all of my peeps there. (My friend Namaste Mari teases me for being a notorious bailer of events but I want to say “hi” to YOU so let me know to keep an eye out for ya!)
  • Students Leaving Their Crap by the Teacher’s Area: This is more of a vent/rant than a new post but at one place where I teach I have a student who leaves her purse right by me while I am teaching and it really cheeses me off. Not sure WHY it bothers me so much but she just ASSUMES she can leave anything she wants by me when I am teaching and maybe it will be safe there? I have no idea but no one else does this and it is driving me nuts. I will explain more in the Vlog but any advice you can give me to handle this tactfully will also be appreciated. (I am not kidding—this is a real problem I am having.)
  • The Skinny Gut Diet Book Giveaway: Are you interested in proper digestion and also like to win things? Well get ready to enter to win The Skinny Gut Diet by Brenda Watson who is a certified nutrition counselor and has the most amazing Twitter name @brendapoopscoop. If you are interested in winning your own copy (open to the Continental U.S. only, sorry!) then check out my Vlog below. Good luck and happy pooping!

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

 

The Skinny Gut Diet

By Brenda Watson, C.N.C

In your digestive tract live100 trillion bacteria, which make up 90 percent of the cells in your body and are the real reason you gain or lose weight. Everyone has a unique balance of good and bad bacteria that either keeps them healthy or leaves them susceptible to disease. This same balance contributes to weight gain or to weight loss. By increasing the “be skinny” bacteria and decreasing the “fat” bacteria, you can finally achieve your ideal weight—for good.

In THE SKINNY GUT DIET (on sale 10/7/14, Harmony Books), New York Times bestselling author, certified nutritional consultant, and digestive health expert Brenda Watson offers an insightful perspective on this connection between weight gain and an underlying imbalance of bacteria in the gut, or what she calls the gut factor.  Drawing upon the latest scientific research, Watson illuminates the inner workings of the digestive system and provides instructions for achieving a healthy bacterial ecosystem that initiates weight loss by enabling the body to absorb fewer calories from food, reduce cravings, and store less fat.

The premise is simple: curtail sugar consumption (and its surprising sources) and eat more healthy fats, living foods, and protein to balance the bacteria in your digestive tract. The result? A skinny gut and optimal health.

THE SKINNY GUT DIET centers around an easy-to-follow lifestyle plan. A 14-day eating guide, dozens of delicious and easy to prepare recipes, and sage advice will help you achieve—and maintain—digestive balance and sustained weight loss. With inspiring real-life stories of individuals who transformed their health and their waistlines on the Skinny Gut Diet, Watson empowers you to become your own health advocate.

THE SKINNY GUT DIET is a lifestyle that will transform readers by giving them the tools to eat well for their gut so that they can lose those extra pounds, regain their health, and enjoy the vitality that newfound health brings.

{Just a note—Harmony Books is not sponsoring this post and will send the book directly to the winner.}

If you want to win a copy of The Skinny Gut Diet you must do the following (Continental United States only, please!)

  • Post a comment below (on this post) letting me know you are interested.
  • Send a comment on Twitter and say “I want to win “The Skinny Gut Diet” by @brendapoopscoop from @brooklynfitchik”
  • If you haven’t already—let me know you are subscribing to my You Tube channel

I will pick one winner at random on Monday, October 27, 2014 at NOON Eastern Time and contact them directly. Good luck!
