Your Excuse is Invalid

Your Excuse is Invalid

Got an excuse? I'm sure I can crush it faster than you can finish telling me it. EXCUSES ARE BULLSHIT. Don't like to run? DON'T RUN. Today there are over a million different things you can do to get in shape for every fitness level, and every body type. Get to work, and get moving.

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

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!

Sweet & Spicy Brussels Sprouts! Carb-free Recovery Meal

It's another episode of KYM'S KITCHEN where I teach you how to cook healthy as any capable 5yr old could.  One of my FAVORITE things since moving to LA is the fact that I can ride my bike to the local farmers market and pick up the freshest produce.  Today I got some Brussels Sprouts, and I am going to show you a really fast way to make them.  Today's recipe is my super-duper easy SWEET and SPICY brussels sprouts.

NOLA NONSTOP!

NOLA NONSTOP!

This is Part 2 in our Roadtrip Series (#KymandAlliGoWest) where we tackle food, fitness and FUN in every city.  It's New Orleans' turn: Booty bounce, beer and BARS! er, I mean, barre. Well, both, actually.   Despite a bit of drinking in the street, this video still caters to the healthy n' fit.  I interview NOLA Marathon 5th place woman, Jean the Machine on how she balances Nola's ultra party life with her ultra marathon training.

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
