Women’s Health Cover Star for March 2015: 

Are you House of Cards fanatic like me? Because if so, then you were happy as I was to see Kate Mara (whose character didn’t quite make it through season two) on the cover.  The 5’2” actress talks more about fashion that fitness here but does admit to being a “maniac about exercise who can six miles before 9 am and then take a barre class later (color me impressed and exhausted by that information.)

So what else is in this issue of Women’s Health

15-Minute Workout “Sculpt a Better Butt”

If you have one of those long rubber bands with handles and are looking for some new moves to work your glutes—check out this routine from Jim Smith of Diesel Strength in Elmira. NY.

“Race Day Essentials”

I am planning on going on my first race sometime this year so I am keeping this page on file to know what to bring that day.

“Master This Move”

If you are looking for a strength coach who really knows their stuff—pay attention to Jen Sinkler who is incredibly knowledgeable and relatable.  Here she offers tips for the “just right” deadlift. Good stuff!

“Really Rad Workout Clothes”

There are a few pages here filled with the cutest most colorful gear ever—really! My workout wardrobe needs an update and these items give me pause.

And now the rest of the best of this issue of Women’s Health:

  • “Now This is What We Call Healthy Competition” Looking for ideas to up your workout and have some fun? Women’s Health talks about all kinds of races that are offbeat and cool.

What Did We Learn This Month?

 Shape

December 2014

Julianne Hough photographed by Don Flood.

Shape Cover Star for December 2014:

Julianne Hough (Dancing With the Stars) is a busy gal who tours with her equally famous brother Derek, and is creating a show with him called Blackpool which will be a ballroom dancing drama. In addition to her dancing & singing career Julianne acted in the Footloose reboot and (my personal favorite) the “so bad it is good” Safe Haven. (Get it on Netflix if you ever have the chance. She is fine in the part but the script is amazingly cheesy and awesome!)

The multi-hyphentate is also a workout fiend who keeps in top shape by getting at least 8 hours of sleep per night, eating healthy and dancing as often as she can (even on top of her two-hour shows!)

When home in Los Angeles she prefers works with professional trainer Astrid McGuire and you check out some of their workout in the pages of the December issue.

Julianne Hough in Shape mag 001

What else is in this issue of Shape?

“Long and Lean”

Sadie Lincoln is the founder of barre3 studio (there are over 70 locations!) and she offers to Shape a few exercises she prefers to keep her muscles “long and lean.”

 “Flat Abs Fast”

Every day it seems I reading more and more about New York City-based trainer Adam Rosante who has a book coming out in March called The 30-Second Body. Here he gives us his favorite moves to get your abs tight.

Core Training Shape Magazine 001

“Jump to a Hot Body”

If you ever want to watch me make a total fool out of myself—ask me to demonstrate the proper way to jump rope. I am sort of a deranged 4th grader when it comes to skipping rope and would rather NOT do it at such a high level.

However, I know it is a fantastic workout and this program developed by Punk Rope creator Tim Haft looks like it would whip anyone into fighting form,

Jump to a Hot Body 001
And now the rest of the best of this issue of Shape:

  • “How Can I Ramp Up Results to Get Toned Fast?” If you are looking to get your strength training up a notch—try out these tips from Shape expert Jay Cardiello.

  • “Sneaky Health Threat: Your Vacuum” Did you know that Hoover can “spit bacteria and dust back into the room?” Well, you do now. (Cleaning out mine right now.)

Follow Shape magazine online at: www.Shape.com

Overall Grade:

A The December issue brought it big-time with the good workouts and useful information. Plus, the gift guide was tops!

Ashley Greene photographed by Tom Schirmacher

Women’s Health Cover Star for November 2014: 

Ashley Greene is on the cover and while I only know her from the Twilight films, in reality she has over 25 films to her credit and is also an ambassador for Oakley sunglasses which makes me incredibly jealous.  (Love those shades!)

Anyhoo-Ashely is stunning and has tons of beauty advice for those of us who want to look like a Hollywood starlet but are on a budget.

She keeps in shape by training with Jason Walsh of Rise Movement and prefers little rest between strength moves to keep her cardio up.

 

So what else is in the November issue of Women’s Health

15-Minute Workout “Dynamic Duos”

The idea here is to match two exercises with one another two get maximum benefits and these moves from trainer Nick Rodocoy (whose Twitter photo is great) will help give muscle definition in record time.

15 Minute Workout 001

 Your Hidden Fitness Talent”  

The key to increase your fitness level is to develop your proprioception.

What the hell is that?

Basically it’s the ability to get in tune with your sense of balance and coordination and therefore stay upright and balanced when your receptors are being challenged.

For example—working on your core strength can help you maintain your balance on an icy road and prevent you from slipping and falling.

The exercises featured here can help with developing that “sixth sense.”

Up Your Workouts 001

“Supermarket Stars”

Let’s be frank—most of us buy our food from the market. But that doesn’t mean that all of the packed foods on the shelves are full of garbage that will kill you.

Nay! Some of it is pretty damn good and good for you. Check out the winners in this issue.

Super Market Stars 001

“Slow Down to Power Up”

Yoga expert Kathryn Budig shows off some cool yoga moves that will help you relax this upcoming crazy holiday season.

Energizing Yoga 001

And now the rest of the best of this issue of Women’s Health:

  • “I Survived Being Kidnapped by My Taxi Driver” Holy crap! A true story of kidnapping and terror in Bali. YIKES!
  • ‘Sick Much?” “Virus-busting” strategies to keep you healthy from your nose-rubbing co-workers.

Overall Grade:

A  Some great workouts are featured here plus my beloved beauty stories are pretty fun to read.

Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting photographed by Jeff Lipsky

Women’s Health Cover Star for September 2014: 

Am I the only person in the world who has never seen one episode of The Big Bang Theory? I guess so because it is one of the most popular sitcoms on TV right and the stars of the show just got HUGE raises according to Entertainment Weekly so what am I missing out on, people? Should I check it out?

Anyhoo— Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting has been on the show for eight seasons and is now married to pro tennis player Ryan Sweeting. Inside the magazine she talks about boosting your self-confidence, making quick decisions, “instant attitude swaps” and her complete devotion to all things pertaining to Jennifer Anniston.

In spite of super-busy the comedienne tells Women’s Health she is ready to get into the mommy-making business as soon as possible while also starring on the hit show (tough life!)

Kaley also stars in the Fall Fashion Guide in the back of the magazine which you can see here.

Womens Health back cover 001

So what else is in the September issue of Women’s Health

15-Minute Workout “Build a Hotter Body…”

Pat Matheny of SoHo Strength Lab in NYC created this “reverse pyramid” workout where you perform the hardest part of your workout at the beginning in order to build “mental momentum” and “finish strong.”

15 Minute Workout 001

Expert trainer BJ Gaddour offers workouts for often neglected muscle groups (hips and shoulders) which can help increase fat burn and intensify your planks, squats and lunges.

What Do We Learn This Month in Oxygen?

“Your Way to Harder Shoulders”

Cover star Lori Harder talks about her online Bliss 6-Week training program in the August issue of Oxygen and the fact that she lives every single day with a clear intention of what she plans to do that day.

Lori, by the way, has awesome shoulders and shows some of her favorite moves to keep them looking amazing.

 Burpee and Pushout 001

“Pumped-Up Planks”

I always say that planks are one of best exercises for your core but also one of the most boring. Take a gander here at a couple of suggestions to kick your next set up a notch.

Pumped Up Planks 001

“6-Weeks to a Superb Chest”

Oxygen asked author Myatt Murphy, CSCS, to create a chest workout to maintain balance and strength.

Chest Workout 001

Kettlebell Workout

Kettlebells (when used properly) are excellent for helping build muscles and burn calories in a short period of time. Master trainer Alex Isaly created the circuit featured inside the magazine.

Kettlebell workout 001
“Bosu Sundial”

Going back to the whole “let’s fancy up those planks” thinking—check out this Bosu sundial!

Bosu Sundial 001

And now the rest of this issue of Oxygen:

  • “Time Your Carbs Right” The best time to eat all sorts of carbs including fast-digesting, low-digesting and fibrous.
  • “Age is No Brainer” Incorporating  the best habits for your age range to keep you strong and healthy.
  • “Stagger to Perfection” I don’t see the word “perfection” that often in subject headlines but this staggered-set home workout is pretty great.
  • ‘Be Sun Savvy” The best gear to take along for an outdoor walk in the summer. (Go for it!)

Overall Grade:

B+ Good workouts but the issue was a little thin/lacking for me. Maybe next month they will come back to kick butt?

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog 89: Big News, Cranky Fitness and Postcards from the Edge of Brooklyn 4

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Episode #89

Super-Secret Project with a Fellow Margo, The Joys of “Cranky Fitness” and

My Super Brooklyn Postcard Extravaganza!

Could you use some postcard cheer?

Could you use some postcard cheer?

 

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I am filled with good news today and want to shout it out from the rooftops but alas, I must keep it under wraps for another week or so. (Ooh—how can I keep this to myself? I am dying to talk about it!) Hang on impatient friends and family—there is a new project I am working on with my fellow Margo of She’s Nacho Mama Podcastand we are both crossing our fingers and sending good Juju out to the world that it will be something that lots of folks will enjoy. Not just our usual yoga, Zumba, spinning, workout and “playout” crew but also those who love entertainment.

Entertainment? What kind of entertainment Margo?

I have already said too much! Wait right here until next my next Vlog post (my 90th!) next week to get all the details. (Dying to say something but must restrain myself…)

In the meantime I want to introduce you to a new friend of mine—Jan from Cranky Fitness. Jan used to be an attorney and family therapist but now makes her bones as a life & wellness coach (as well as an ACE-certified wellness coach) and Blogger whose motto is “Healthy Living is a Pain in the Ass!” (What is not to love about this woman?) Cranky Fitness is an excellent resource on all kinds of health, fitness & nutrition topics including a few of my favorites here:

Jan also won the bike seat from Terry Bikes (and me!) at Fitbloggin this year. Be sure to check her out!

And now for my “Super Brooklyn Postcard Extravaganza!”

Recently I participated with a group of fellow Bloggers to send postcards to one another as encouragement and to say “hello” to people we don’t get to see in person very often. This idea had me thinking about all of the times when my students and social media followers take the time out of their busy days to tell me that I make them smile. I get so bogged down with all of my projects and responsibilities that it frankly makes me a “cranky” mess at times. (I know—shocking news, right?)

On Sundays I teach three back to back classes (spin/spin/core) and I have to admit there are times when I say to myself “Screw it—it’s Sunday and I am working again? Grrr!” (Especially on a beautiful morning when I would rather be out on my bike—double grr!)

However every week I still keep going and get such a happy buzz from helping folks end their weekend on a healthy note.

Today one of my favorites said to me that she loves my 10:30 am core class so much she schedules the weekend around it. “My kids know not to make plans with me until after 11:30 when you are done.”

This made me so happy that I decided to send my own encouragement out to those in the world who could use it. Are you in the need of a little postcard cheer? Then be sure to post in the comments below and send me a note on Twitter (@brooklynfitchik) and I will personally send you a postcard from my lovely Brooklyn. Really!

Here are more details!

 

Got that?

I will collect names & addresses until midnight, Sunday, July 27th (eastern time.) Hope you all have an amazing week and I can NOT wait to tell you my BIG news!

Until next time…

Health Cover Star for June:

Confession time—I have never seen one thing Rachel Bilson has been in including The OC but she seems very sweet. Um—that’s all I have for this one.

So what else is inside the June Health?

“Your Big-Day Checklist”

Health  culled together everything you need to take with you on race including a “bounce-free” bra from Lululemon I need to check out –ASAP.

Race Day Set Up 001

“Tracy Tones You”

While I do not prescribe to all of Tracy Anderson’s training ideas (for example saying that women she never use “heavy” weights) but I do like her core work and these moves are pretty damn cool.

Tracy Anderson Abs workout 001

“A User’s Manual: Your Colon”

This is my favorite feature in every issue where Health examines one part of the human body and gives advice on how to best take care of it. Good stuff on how to keep your colon working at its best.

Your Colon 001

“10 New Sunscreen Finds”

I make it a point of getting all new sunblock every year (the ingredients will lose power over time) and there were some pretty cool finds here.

Sunscreen 001

What Do We Learn This Month in Oxygen?

“A Petite Powerhouse”

Our cover star is Kathleen Tesori who is not only sponsored by Bodybuilding.com but is also Manger of Supply Chain management with the U. S. Airforce—wow! The 5’ 2” Tesori resides in Salt Lake City and considers working for her country to be a privilege.

Even though she has busy days with the Department of Defense she always makes the point to work out even if for only 20 minutes. The former junk food junkie used to live on corndogs and Mountain Dew (ah—college!) She now eats a very clean diet and totes around her meals in a cooler to and from work.

Kathleen is featured in the “20-Minute Fat-Burning Workout” inside the issue as well.

20 minute workout Oxygen 001

 

“Your Ultimate Upper Body”

By doing two opposing exercises at the same time you can see powerful effects (such as combining lunges with bicep curls.) Check out some of these moves from trainer Cindy Whitmarsh that will help increase your metabolic burn.

Your Upper Body Workout Oxygen 001

“Portable Pilates”

Oxygen has expert Pilates trainer Juliet Kaska of JK Zen Fitness show how we can all do this workout from home. (Note to self—get this equipment, stat!)

Portable Pilates 001
“Fine-Tune Your Butt”

With a headline like that—guess what muscles you will be working with this feature? These exercises were developed by Simone De La Rue whom I completely adore. (Hi Simone!)

Glute workout in Oxygen 001
“Pink Power!”

I am not much of a runner (if you ever see me running—ask what the hell is wrong!) Nor am I much of a “pink” girl but this page of pink running gear gives me the happies. (Maybe because Spring has sprung!)

Pink running gear Oxygen mag 001

And now the rest of this issue of Oxygen:

  • “Strong Body, Strong Mind” Exercising your body can also help your mind from “warding off dementia to relieving anxiety and depression.”
  • “Eat Smarter to Feel Great” If you have problems with inflammation (over here!) changing your diet can help “minimize it’s effects.”

Overall Grade:

A- Lots of good workouts here but some of the other features were less than interesting to me.
