I’ve yet to run the New York City Marathon. In 2013 I got to experience it firsthand, though. I cheered on every single runner and felt the immense energy and spirit that electrifies the entire city on Marathon Day. I may have never run the race before, but I can still tell you that it’s a truly extraordinary experience. Last year I was only a spectator, but I know for a fact that statement is true, which is why I can’t even begin to imagine what it feels like to finish.

It’s official. I have become the ultimate exercise gear junkie. From sneakers and apparel to headphones and heart rate monitors, I’m a little bit obsessed with trying out the latest and greatest.

Most recently, I’ve been putting the new Armour39 Fitness and Heart Rate Monitor to the test. According to Under Armour, other heart rate monitors compile results by taking an average of your heart rate data, but the Armour39 monitor tracks every heart beat while you’re working out to give you more accurate results and with your WILLpower number, a sense of how hard you really worked.

3 Reasons Every Runner Should Try Barre + a Skirt Sports Giveaway!

If I ate a cupcake for every time someone had asked me if I’d ever taken a Barre class over the past year or so, well (if it’s even possible) I’d be REALLY sick of cupcakes by now. What was even more annoying than constantly being questioned about the exercise fad, though, was the fact that I had never given it a go. I had no opinion to offer those who were questioning curiously.

Thanks to my membership at the NYC Reebok Sports Club (courtesy of FitFluential) and my new exercise schedule that makes group ex classes ideal, I no longer have to answer The Barre Question with a “no.” I’ve finally boarded the Barre bandwagon and if you ask me if I’ve ever tried it and what I think of it, I’ll happily throw some thoughts at you. Including the following lists of reasons why Barre is a particularly great exercise for runners.

How to Find Time for Exercise + A Total-Body Gym Workout

Monday marks my third week at The Active Times and my new weekly schedule of working the “nine to five.” So far, I’ve loved every minute of working there. I’ve written lots about running, fitness, and even traveling and I can’t wait to keep contributing more content.

FYI: You can see all of my articles right here!

Since my office no longer doubles as the place where I also work out (#benefitsofbeingapersonaltrainer), aside from acclimating to an entirely new work environment, I’ve also had to completely re-adjust my workout routine. I haven’t had a job with a traditional 9-5 schedule in almost 2 years, and until now I’ve always had a workout space readily at my disposal and a super-flexible schedule. So in a lot of ways, this re-adjustment was like learning to ride a bike without training wheels again.

#WhatsBeautiful: Fitness Inspiration from a Fellow Fit Blogger

We all need a little inspiration sometimes. Our own motivation can only take us so far, and sometimes it’s just completely non-existant. I’ll be the first to admit that there are plenty of days where going home and taking a nap or re-watching an entire season of New Girl sounds SO much more appealing than working out. More often than not, I ¬†would much rather eat three slices of greasy, oily pizza than a nutritionally balanced, responsible meal that will fuel my body.

What’s beautiful though, is that every day I get to interact with a community of uplifting and motivating people that inspire me to always be a better me than I was the day before.

How to Make Fitness Fun and Stay Motivated to Exercise + A Fun Fit Bodyweight Workout

The following post is sponsored by Fitfluential on behalf of Puma.

Finding the fun in fitness isn’t an easy thing to do, but it’s absolutely possible and something that I want to inspire everyone to do. I encourage others to find exercises that they love, activities and sports that will continue to keep them coming back for more on a daily basis. That way, keeping up an exercise routine feels less like a chore that you have to force yourself to do and more like a fun hobby that you look forward to.
