Ever get stuck in a rut? We’ve all been there at one point or another; feeling stuck and you’re not sure what needs to change.

If you’re like me and you find comfort in routine, then it’s not really that hard to become stagnant; whether with running, your job or just life in general.

Why am I even talking about this? Well because when I visited the Reebok FitHub in Union Square for yoga with Tara Stiles last night, she opened up my mind to a pretty great point.

Be Amazed

When was the last time you were amazed? And I mean like, really, truly amazed. Not like, “Oh my gosh! That sandwich was amazing,” amazed. But like, “4th of July fireworks, epic season-finale of your favorite TV show, best book you’ve read in years” amazed. Think about it. Can you think of a time?

Now, think some more. When was the last time you were amazed at yourself? What did you accomplish that made you feel that way?

Workout Wednesday: Yoga Stretch for Runners

It’s Wednesday and it’s time to workout, Hungry Readers!

OK, well actually, this week we’re taking it easy and keeping it low key with a yoga-based stretching routine. These are the series of stretches that I do after I get back from a run. And even if you’re not a runner, this is a great routine to incorporate into your fitness regimen for improving and maintain flexibility, which is equally as important as strength and endurance.

Finding Flexibility: Why We All Need Yoga

This post is part of the four-part series “Finding the Fun in Fitness with Reebok.”

I don’t remember the first time I tried yoga, but I do remember having some preconceived notions about it. I used to think it was some kind of exercise that only vegans and hippies participated in. I didn’t understand that what it really is, is a powerful form of exercise that holds an enormous ability to transform the body and mind.

Unfortunately, a lot of people still hold the same preconceived biases that I used to have, and therefore think that yoga is not for them. But they’re wrong, because yoga is for everyone. Anyone can do it, and anyone who does will learn how effective and powerful it can be, even after just one session.

Finding the Fun in Fitness with Reebok

[Glow in the dark yoga!]

Last week I was invited to the 2013 Reebok Women’s Lifestyle and Fitness event here in New York City. Reebok, fitness, fun exercise workshops… You know I didn’t have to think twice about what my RSVP would be.

Reebok supplied us with sneakers, tanks, bras, tees, and tights and I got to spend two days trying out all of their gear while mingling with some of the most passionate and inspiring group of fitness writers, athletes, and bloggers. We all had a blast participating in yoga, running, CrossFit, and dance workouts together. In other words, it was two full days of bliss.

I Tried a New Exercise: AntiGravity Yoga Round 2

Last month, I tried AntiGravity yoga at Studio Anya with The Holding Space for the very first time. To start off easy, I took a “restorative” class, which had a calm and relaxed vibe.

Last week, I went back to studio Anya for my second shot at Antigravity Yoga , this time to give the Flying Fitness class a try. My reaction to round 2? How fun! Again, I got to swing around and hang upside own in the hammocks, not being able to help feeling like a little kid on a swing set.
