What do you do when you stumble upon an abandoned warehouse?...Film a workout video! DUH. Today I'm back with another HIIT workout that will kick your ass...just watch. I am dead by the end of this. This session features 5 moves I am really feeling right now. It will work out your ENTIRE body. Three rounds for 7.5 minute workout, 6 rounds for 15 minutes. Now DO IT! #BallztotheDrywall
I retired from twerking for cool minute. It was a dark time in my life. I just wasn't inspired to move my rump. Trap music was getting stale. I left my favorite a$$-moving DJ, Dirtyfinger, back in Brooklyn. And on top of everything, my routine of constant-cardio left my booty a bit smaller than ideal for real rump-shaking.
But with the help of warmer weather, a squat rack, and a Brukwine class with my nyc girls- I'm BACK t'WERK. I don't care what anyone says. Simply put: It's fun to shake ya' ass. It all started with yesterday's EARTHQUAKE reminding me of this favorite Diplo track. Next thing you know, I compiled a monster playlist guaranteed to have you wining in no-time. This TUESDAY TURN-ON features remixes from Branchez, Ben Bruker, Dave Aude, Giraffage, and my personal savior of booty-shaking: DJ DirtyFinger. So press play, keep calm, & booty work.
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...

Because, in the warm words of Fakemoney, "It's Christmas in this Bitch".
It's CMJ! And I am stoked. CMJ is an independent music festival. Once a year, bands from all over the country hit local venues to showcase their talent. With thousands of shows, how do you pick where to start? Below are songs from ten of my favorite band's playing the festival. Click to listen and then check out the schedule here to see where you can catch them live all this week.
This week's collection includes some brand new gems, and a few of my favorite No Way Josie jams because, (ahem) we're playing Cameo this Saturday!! We're super excited for this show since Cameo is one of our favorite venues in our hometown. Hope you'll come check us out!
Highlights this week are newcomers London Grammar (check out their cover of Chris Issac's Wicked Games), a new soulful jam from my boyfriend Drake & two contrasting No Way Josie tunes: Hold my Hand featuring Illspokinn, and dancefloor thrasher Want it Back.
