I was getting dressed in the locker room at my gym last week when I overheard a conversation between two ladies about the tough cardio class we had all just barely survived. One lady was in her bra and panties, the other naked, but for a towel. I looked over at them, about to commiserate on the ass-kicking, when I realized the woman in the towel looked familiar.
When you have a goal -- whether it's starting a business or eating healthier or traveling the world -- it's easy to look at someone who is already doing it and then try to reverse engineer their strategy. In some cases, this is really useful. Learning from the experiences of successful people is a great way to accelerate your own learning curve.
I've talked before about our pets' sometimes precarious relationship with technology, but I've recently discovered some pretty neat devices that can a...

Once question remained: Was I the guy on the Westview track that afternoon? In every picture it was a woman. The time frame of my weight loss story does not fit with the original. I write a lot; that would be very strange if it was about me. Here is my answer.

This month's playlist is dominated by club tracks. Fitz & The Tantrums appeared in last month's Top 10 and return this month with the only rock song to make the cut.
It started as a distraction I hated. Then it became an obsession I craved. Then, a passion that carried me through.

So if you told me even five years ago that I would own and run a small business with my husband (in the fitness industry, no less!), I would have spit out my Frappuccino and laughed hard. Really hard. We opened our gym in the East Village in June of 2013. I have never "worked" a day since.
Watch out, stationary bike. Across the country, boatloads of people are dipping their toes into the water (sorry), resulting in a surge of indoor-rowing classes. We recently popped in for a lesson at our local gym to see what all the fuss is about.
