The weather this weekend is great. Going from temperatures that were varying from 4-14 degrees fahrenheit, to this 50 degree weather - seems like the perfect temperature. Definitely great weather to be doing some activities outside. Like walking or running. This is a great opportunity to take your workouts outside during this “heat wave” (just make sure you dress appropriately.)
I’m up in Hoboken for the weekend, and my boyfriend and I thought it would be a great idea to go for a long run to embrace the day. Before our run we started our day with a great, nutrient filled breakfast, and then headed out the door. We ran from Hoboken up to West New York - about a 9 mile run - with great views along the Hudson River of New York City.
Take advantage of the weekend weather
It may not be summertime sun, but with the proper clothing, it is perfect. Do something active outside with friends or family to change up your routine.
Take advantage of the temperatures, and do something outdoors.
Always Stay Active!
They called it! Another snow storm has hit the North East! For many of you who are stuck at home on this cold day, here is a 20 minute cardio work out that will warm you up quickly!
All you need is 1 flight of stairs, and something to keep track of time.
The goal for this workout is to complete as many sets of each exercise as possible within 10 minutes. Move consecutively through the exercises as best as you can. When the time is up, take 2-3 minute break, and begin the timer for another 10 minutes. (If you have any questions about this workout please feel free to contact me!)
