Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

It’s a new week here in Brooklyn and I have so much to discuss today plus I have a new, totally rad giveaway Element: Yoga for Strength & Flexibility DVD so enough of my mindless chatter and let’s get to it, shall we?

  • EleVen by Venus:  I am happy to announce that I am now a brand ambassador for EleVen by Venus –as in Venus Williams, people! Will forward more details soon but let’s just say I am pretty excited to join this new brand and help them reach out to strong women everywhere.

 

  • Gore Bike Wear from Terry Bicycles: I am also a brand ambassador for Terry Bicycles which is a top notch one-stop shopping paradise for women who love to spend their day on two wheels. They recently sent me a box of goodies which I will review for you all soon but wanted you all to know that I am now a HUGE fan of Gore Bike Wear. Terry sent me the Power Jacket and it is the best damn windbreaker I have ever worn in my life. It kept me cool when the sun was down and wicked away sweat when it got warmer and though snug fitting—never felt tight or constricting. LOVE IT!! If you need one jacket this summer for running, walking or cycling—get this one.

 

  • Joy Bauer’s New Project: This past week I was on assignment for Fit Bottomed Girls and attended a swanky lunch at the Gramercy Park Hotel (tough life—amIright?) A group of us lucky individuals had the good fortune to meet Today’s top nutritionist Joy Bauer and let me tell y’all something—she is even more beautiful in person than you see on TV (and super nice!)  Joy is heading up a new home delivery snack service called Nourish Snacks and I will post all the details soon. (In the meantime—I am enjoying yummy and healthy snacks for the next few weeks!)

 

  • Xtend Barre Brooklyn Heights: I have a review of a new barre studio in Brooklyn up Sweat Guru.com if you are curious about checking out a new studio in this neighborhood.

Just a reminder that I am speaking again at this year’s Fitbloggin convention from June 26-29 in Savannah, Georgia and will heading up a small group discussion on how to pitch brands for ambassadorships and sponsorships. It’s scheduled for 8-9 am on Saturday morning which I know seems like a rough time for some people but let me sweeten your interest by telling you that Terry Bicycles will have a special giveaway to one lucky participant. (Hmmm—wonder what it will be?) So if you are attending FitBloggin please come and hang out with me!

 

  • Elemet Yoga for Strength and Flexibility DVD:: Full details are listed below but please know that there will be one winner of this DVD set and they will be contacted by Anchor Bay Entertainment directly to get their prize. Anchor Bay is responsible for the DVD mailing and did not pay for this promotion. (Continental United States only, please!)

Now let’s get to this week’s Vlog:

 

Here are more details about this week’s giveaway:

Build Power and Suppleness Inside and Out with Ashley Turner’s New

‘ELEMENT: YOGA FOR STRENGTH & FLEXIBLITY DVD

BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Increase flexibility and strength in the mind, body and spirit right at home, anytime. Also learn how to meditate in the new “Element: Yoga for Strength & Flexibility” DVD. In this DVD, mind/body psychotherapist Ashley Turner gives the physical and mental cues to open anyone up to the full benefits of yoga.  The DVD provides two practices, each about thirty minutes in length, plus a 7-minute guided meditation bonus. As with all Element videos, the spectacular setting overlooking the Pacific Ocean adds to the enjoyment. The DVD will be available in stores and on Amazon on September 24, 2013 from Anchor Bay Entertainment.

The Strength practice will leave you feeling powerful and in control, whether you’re in Warrior III or tackling whatever the day may bring. It improves endurance and focus in every sense. The Flexibility program will bring a sense of suppleness to the muscles, joints and thoughts.  The Guided Meditation bonus is the first of its kind in the Element series. Turner provides a verbal path to follow towards deeper relaxation. It will help anyone to begin a meditation practice. According to WedMD, “meditation not only lowers blood pressure but also can amp up your immune system.”

Turner’s previously released “Element” DVDs have reached bestseller status. They have brought profound changes to many people. Ginger writes, “Since that first night I’ve done your DVD daily. I have not needed even one med for panic. I have not needed to medicate with chocolate either. My body actually seemed to crave greens.”

Tonya shared this, “I wanted to tell you that I bought your “Element: Yoga for Weight Loss” DVD in 2010. I have a thyroid problem as well as a “saying no to myself and others” problem. I lost around 60 pounds. Once I started feeling natural energy, it became easy to treat myself right.”

Lisa said, “I have many yoga DVDs, and have attended many classes over the years.  Your DVD is – by far – the easiest routine to follow.  I also feel happy during the session … it’s as though you’ve sprinkled some sort of magic-dust into that yoga session!”

No props are needed for these programs. None of the moves are complicated. The challenges come from the holding and releasing more than the postures themselves.

Ashley Turner is a Los Angeles-based yoga instructor with a master’s degree in counseling psychology with a concentration in depth (Jungian) psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. She holds a private practice as a Marriage + Family Psychotherapy Registered Intern. Turner was formally trained in classical Ashtanga Yoga by Baba Hari Das (Mt. Madonna). She completed advanced Vinyasa training with Shiva Rea and has studied extensively with Sharon Gannon and David Life of Jivamukti Yoga, Mark Whitwell, Ram Dass and Krishna Das. Turner teaches at Exhale in Los Angeles, Pure Yoga in New York City and leads workshops all over the world. Named the “#2 Online Influencer for Stress Relief” by Sharecare.com, Turner’s clients have included Michelle Branch, Tony Horton and Pete Yorn.

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog 78: Fit As a Pro DVD Giveaway, Mud Run Tips, Bullets Over Broadway and More 10

Bullets Over Broadway, 21-Day Sugar Detox Cookbook Review, Top “Mud Run” Tips Plus:

Soccer Star Lauren Sesselmann’s “Fit As a Pro” Workout DVD Giveaway

Fit As a Pro DVD Giveaway (Lauren Sesselmann)

Fit As a Pro DVD Giveaway (Lauren Sesselmann)

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

I am so happy to check in with all of you but must admit my brain has third degree “Spring Fever” and going outside is my only cure. So today I am keeping everything short & sweet while offer a 2-for DVD giveaway for one of you lucky readers. So let’s get to it!

  • Bullets Over Broadway:  I am a big fan of splashy Broadway shows plus think Bullets Over Broadway is one Woody Allen’s better films from the 90s so I was very eager to check out the musical version his show starring Zach Braff in his Broadway debut. (Never watched Scrubs so I was not too familiar with his work.) I would say that it is a very good (but not great show) with some outstanding performances. I do not predict this one will be around for long which is a shame.

 

 

 

 

  • Ryka: This week I was invited by Ryka to check out their upcoming sneaker collection for Fall 2014 and was very impressed with their use of memory foam and cushioning in their shoes. Ryka has won tons of awards over the years as a top sneaker brand that exclusively serves women as their customer base. Ryka even gave me a pair of “Devotion” sneakers that I have been wearing non-stop and absolutely LOVE. (Thanks Ryka!)

 

  • Fit As a Pro DVD Giveaway: Soccer superstar Lauren Sesselmann has her own series of ten-minute workout DVDs that will get you in awesome shape in no time. This week I am giving away two of latest titles 10 Minute Full Body Workouts and (my favorite!) 10 Minute full Body Workouts for Small Spaces (so you can work out just about anywhere, people!) I will have links to clips below plus details on how you can enter to win. (Continental United States only, please!) Fit As a Pro will send the DVDs directly to the one winner selected and did not pay for this post or promotion.

Now let’s get to this week’s Vlog:

Runner cover

 Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

How are you all doing? I am fine and dandy in spirit but my right hamstring is sprained, strained or just in a bad mood because my leg is not feeling well.

  • SELF magazine is changing y’all:  So it looks like a week after enduring terrible press after “Tutu-gate” (look it up online—SELF & Tutus and check it out for yourself if you do not know what I am talking about) editor in chief Lucy Danziger is out and in her place SELF has hired Joyce Chang from Cosmopolitan magazine to take over the reins. I am withholding all judgment until I read her first “real issue and will also hold off on any full reviews of SELF until then. (The magazine business is rough, folks!)

 

  • 20-Minute Indoor Cycling Workout: I am a Sweat Pink ambassador and am lucky enough to write for their Blog www.sweatguru.com This past week  posted my first workout for them– a 20-minute indoor cycling routine. Please let me know what you think of it because I am totally new to writing these things out!

 

  • Xtend Barre Brooklyn Heights: This past week I was lucky enough to try out my first Xtend barre workout in their new Brooklyn Heights studio. Will give you more details when my article is ready on Fit Bottomed Girls.

 

  • Runner’s World Giveaway: This week I am giving away a copy of Big Book of Running for Beginners which comes courtesy of the folks at Runner’s World magazine. I am giving away one copy this week and Runner’s World (who did not pay for this promotion) will send the winning item directly to the randomly picked winner (chosen by me.)

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Ep 74 with @BKLYNBodyBurn @YumYucky @MaxFlowSports Giveaway! #sweatpink 4

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Episode #74

Daylight Savings Time Survival, Reading About “Network,” Getting My Butt Handed to Me at Brooklyn Body Burn, Yum Yucky & Intermittent Fasting, “Six by Sondheim”

Plus: The MaxFlow Sports Headband Giveaway!!

You can win one of these headbands from MaxFlow Sports!

You can win one of these headbands from MaxFlow Sports!

Hey there! Hi there! Ho there!

So today is Sunday, the day we begin Daylight Savings Time and this past week I wrote a survival guide on Sweat Guru describing my best strategies for fighting the “sleepies” brought on by losing that hour of sleep. Alas, in spite of my best efforts to NOT feel that hour of sleep lost my butt is dragging around today and I am working hard to stay motivated.

But know this—I am HERE for you people today and every day. Pinky swear!

I have a few fun things to chit-chat about this week so let’s not waste any more time and get right to it, shall we?

  • Last night I did go to bed early in order to make up for Daylight Savings Time but made the colossal mistake of starting to read Mad as Hell by Dave Itzkoff. Dave is a reporter for the New York Times and is one of my favorite writers—period. His newest book is all about the making of the film Network which is one of the best films ever made (if not THE best) taking on the sensationalizing of the evening news. I first heard about Mad as Hell on The Fogenest Files podcast (hosted by the amazing Jake Fogelnest.) If you have never seen Network before—do yourself a favor and check it out today! THEN get this amazing book so we can chat about it in the future. Your brain will thank you for it!

 

  • My girl Josie of Yum Yucky recently talked about trying Intermittent Fasting to get through a workout & weight loss plateau. In essence she is breaking down her eating schedule to a few hours during the day to allow her body time to properly digest food and repair itself. I was a little skeptical at first but her results are so amazing that for the next few weeks I will give it a go. Monday-Friday I will eat at 9 am, Noon and 3 pm (Paleo-centric, of course) and over the weekends try to keep it to a 9-hour window (I teach all morning both days and mama needs to fuel up first!) Get back to y’all at the end of the month to let you know how it goes.

 

  • If you have HBO you must see Six by Sondheim which is a documentary about songwriter Stephen Sondheim where they examine his writing process and the creative inspirations for six of his best works including Send in the Clowns and my new theme song—I’m Still Here (Check out the video below by Jarvis Cocker—love!) Not kidding—I cried four times during the film and yes, I am a HUGE sap.

 

MaxFlow Sports Headband Giveaway

For this week’s giveaway I am offering one of two MaxFlow Sports headbands that they sent to me because I am one of their brand ambassadors—yay!

MaxFlow Sports uses a “Cross-Grip” technology so that they actually stay in place the entire time you work out (imagine that?) So while keeping the sweat out of your face they will not slip. Also, they are very comfortable and easy to maintain (machine washable.) The colors I am offering today are solid pink and a black & white print. You will one of them and I will keep the other!

Now, on to this week’s Vlog post (Forgive my sleepy face, please. It’s been a long day.)

 

Got that? So if you want to win this giveaway you must do the following (Continental United States, 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 @MaxFlowSports headband 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 next Monday, March 17, 2013 at NOON Eastern Time and contact them directly. Good luck and enter as often as you like!

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog 70: My Super, Duper 21-Day Sugar Detox Cookbook Giveaway! #21dsd 29

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Episode 70

Featuring: My Super, Duper 21-Day Sugar Detox Cookbook Giveaway!

21 DAY COOKBOOK COVER Jan30

 

Hey there! Hi there! Hi there!

It has been a wild and wooly in the fitness blogosphere—whoa! First we had this rather, um—interesting personal essay from Jen Polachek who talked about her internal struggle when facing a “fairly heavy set black woman” who dared to enter her yoga class on the supposedly woman-friendly site XO Jane. I am NOT kidding—read it for yourself here: OX Jane 1.

The first response I noticed came courtesy of the beautiful & talented Erika Nicole Kendall of the Blog The Black Girl’s Guide to Weight Loss. Nicely done, Erika.

If you are looking for the perfect rebuttal in addition to Erika’s than you can hardly do better than to check out the incredible Pia Glen who wrote this on XO Jane. Both managed to peel away the icky layers of pseudo self-awareness of Polachek’s personal essay which for some reason was featured in the “It Happened to Me” page—usually dominated by sad or scary stories.

Anyhoo—this story has been discussed to the nth degree so let’s just move on to a couple of fun news items and then talk about my FAB giveaway—yes?

  • I am going to be speaking at Fitbloggin this year! Tickets are on sale NOW so get them while you can. (We will be in Savannah this year—whoo hoo!)
  • In case you missed it—Terry Bicycles announced my ambassadorship on their site here. Very excited about this partnership!
  • My writing chops are going to get a workout with my soon-to-be regular contributions on SweatGuru.com. (Whoop!)

And now, on to this week’s big giveaway!

21 DAY SUGAR DETOX COOKBOOK

The New York Times best-selling author Diane Sanfilippo, BS. NC has written some of my favorite Paleo books including Practical Paleo and The 21-Day Sugar Detox and is an all-around cool chick (and animal lover!) in addition to being the writer of some kick ass recipes.

If you are looking to find ways to get refined sugars out of your diet without starving yourself or losing your energy—you need to read her newest book The 21-Day Sugar Detox Cookbook.

If you want to win a copy today, keep on reading to find out what you need to do. (Disclaimer alert: I received a copy of The 21-Day Sugar Detox Cookbook for giveaway from Victory Belt publishing and was not paid to offer to my readers.)

I love this cookbook and have been having a ball making some yummy (and healthy) versions of some of my favorite foods including Shepard’s Pie which you can see below. (This is a new favorite recipe for me!)

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Ep 69: “Blogger Brunch” Goodie Bag Giveaway! @SweatGuru @MaxFlowSports #giveaway 28

Brooklyn Fit Chick Vlog Episode 69

Featuring: NYC Healthy Bloggers Fit Brunch, My First Formal Headshot and a “Sweat Guru+” Giveaway

NYC Fit Bloggers Brunch!

NYC Fit Bloggers Brunch!

 

Hey there! Hi there! Hi there!

How are you all doing? Since my incident of vertigo (BPPV) a couple of weeks ago I have been feeling much better (thanks so much to all of you who checked in with me. I really appreciate it.) The key when you are dealing with this type of an ailment is to learn to enjoy life’s little victories. Such as “Hey—I managed to lie back in the washing station chair at the salon and not get dizzy!”  And “Ooh, I can reach down and tie my shoe laces without falling over—cool!”  I have no idea if I will “tumble” again but I if I do—the next time I will not be as scared because and will know what the hell is going and treat the symptoms.

I have not had taken any kind of medicine (over-the-counter or prescribed) in over a week and the exercises I have found on You Tube (particularly this one from As Dr. Jo) have been most helpful. It still makes me nervous to think about teaching core moves on my back (in a supine position)—but I am getting stronger every day and will be back to my old self soon.

Anyhoo—I actually had a fun week starting with my NYC Blogger Brunch held in my apartment-whoo hoo! It’s been hella cold out here and I was worried people would bail out of the schlep to Brooklyn but we had a few brave & hearty souls come by. You can read an excellent recap here from my friend Cassandre of Losing in the City (sorry my cat scared you!) And while our conversation was private (we may have gossiped just a wee bit…) it was fun, light-hearted and full of reciprocated love.

Next time I host I will do a better job of getting the word out on Facebook (I realized I left some pretty groovy friends off of the first invite by accident—dammit!) But if you want to win your own goodie bag form the event just hang on and I will give you the details below.

First I want to thank the following Bloggers for making the trek:

We ate piles of good food, laughed our butts off, tried out the Da Vinci BodyBoard that I reviewed for Fit Bottomed Girls, and I gave away goodie bags! Want to know what they got? Get ready to watch this clio and then find out how you can win!

Also, this past week I had my first official headshot done since…hell I have NO idea when I last sat for a portrait but one of my excellent student is an ace photographer and he managed to “catch my essence” pretty well. His name is Victor Giganti and is based here in Brooklyn. I think this shot is my favorite—what do you think?
