Sure you put in your gym time, and pay close attention to the food groups. (Pretty sure there are four--sushi, kobe, coconut milk, vodka.) Still, life in New York requires you to track your fitness more closely…or find a gadget that will do all that for you. When it comes to certain inventions, sometimes less is a...

#WORKOUT WEDNESDAY: Trifecta

The New York City Triathlon took place on Sunday. Which means, if you didn't participate, well, it's probably not happening this year. Sorry. The good news: they'll do it all again in 2016. Last time you checked, triathlons were an individual sport. Still, behind every great athlete (of the pro or weekend variety) is a team...

#WORKOUT WEDNESDAY: Star Power

Mari Winsor. No introduction needed. Okay, maybe a few words couldn't hurt... Dubbed the vanguard of the modern Pilates movement, she is credited with making this once obscure workout accessible to the public at-large. Her record-breaking success of the Winsor Pilates workout series became a household name. The former dancer (yes, she danced with Michael Jackson) who owns two...

#WORKOUT WEDNESDAY: Mass. Appeal

imageNothing wrong with the Hamptons. Really. Except for the traffic. And the fact that you always recognize half the people there. And it's not exactly an island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Hmmm. Well, that's nothing Nantucket can't solve. Trade the Jitney for a plane and trip...

#WORKOUT WEDNESDAY: Have Paddle, Will Travel

Here's the good news: it's going to be in the 80's this weekend.

#WORKOUT WEDNESDAY: Summer of Fitness-Meetup 2015

You're not the excitable type. But you do like things. All kinds of things. Ponies. Those are nice. Parks. Beautiful this time of year. Punch bowls filled with rum. Always a crowd pleaser.

#WORKOUT WEDNESDAY: Surf and Turf

Living here has its advantages. Being near the coast...not one of them. Which makes a post-work surf outing almost impossible. So head to where all local thrill-seeking, extreme-sports junkies go to get their fix... I'm talking about SurfSet New York City, an intense indoor workout that simulates surfing atop a landlocked longboard. Here's the thing about surfing. It looks...
