Tuesday Turn-On: Electronic Summer

Tuesday Turn-On: Electronic Summer

It’s nothing new to say that summer is the time when electronic music booms.  Festivals are everywhere, and DJ’s are on every corner.  This week's playlist is inspired by just that; hot summer nights, shakin' it to your favorite electronic masterminds.  I know when I’m in Brooklyn, and the sun is setting, you can always find me getting down to Dirtyfinger’s latest mix.  He throws an awesome party, locals in the area; get.on.that.

Rehab Workout: Knee Stabilizing Moves

Today I sit down to discuss one of the most frequent video requests I get: rehabilitation workouts.  My badass co-worker, Laura Crago, is currently in recovery from a DOUBLE knee surgery.  But that doesn’t stop her from getting her workouts in.  She’s making the best of it, and blogging her entire experience.  Check out her blog here.  Laura shares her favorite moves for rehabbing them ol’ knees!

Tuesday Turn-On: SXSW Picks

South By South West (SXSW), a music conference originally intended to feature local musicians and unsigned artists, has now turned into a corporate sponsored week-long party.  This year is bigger than ever, thanks to the iTunes festival, Lady Gaga and secret shows by JBeibs.  It's hard to sift through the hype and find up&coming acts on their grind, driving broken-down vans, schlepping their own equipment and promoting their music over youtube and soundcloud pages.  I happen to know a few incredibly talented artists fitting just this description, thus I present you with my "SouthBy" picks of 2014.

Enjoy the party and be safe, kids! xx

New video day! As you know, I just completed a cross-country road trip.  Spending hours in the car isn't really a fitness geeks idea of fun. So I planned a workout in every place we stopped.  I got to try out new things, check out trending studios, and spend my driving days sore and satisfied.  Here's the first video from the road featuring... NASHVILLE where I got one to try one of my all-time favorite classes at The Hotbox. So watch the video and follow along the NonStop tour...
