Everyone who steps out into the streets of New York City knows the benefits of yoga. From posters and billboards to yoga studios on every street corner- there is no denying that New Yorkers have embraced the meditative, stress-reducing practice.
We all have someone in our lives (maybe it's even you!) who lives, breathes, and eats fitness. What did you get the girl who has every pair of yoga leggings or the guy with the latest fitness watch or wireless earbuds?
Running is about more than just the gear, so be sure to give your favorite New York City Marathoner more than just a new pair of shoes and fancy running pants this year.
Treat them to a Noraxon Running Analysis from one of our highly qualified physical therapists and they'll be talking about this holiday season for the rest of the year.
It's hard to know what to get people for Christmas sometimes.
That sweater they wanted last week is nowhere to be found and they have every tech gadget they could possibly want. Truly, what do you get the person who already has everything or is just so selfless and content it's impossible to even guess what to give them??
You've got a plan to get back-to-sport after your injury or recent surgery and you're not going to let the Holidays get in the way of your goals. You've got too much grit, you are a New Yorker after all.
There's no reason to let celebrations get in the way of your recovery or to let your good times slow down your hard work. Here's a fool-proof plan in just five easy steps to keep you on track over the Holiday season.
Holiday weight gain is no myth.
If you don't want to wind up with a belly like a bowl full of jelly, then it might be a good idea to make some lifestyle changes around this holiday season.
Most Americans gain between 1-5 pounds over the holidays but the real problem is they don't ever lose that extra pound or two after the holidays are over.
Maybe an extra pound isn't a big deal over one or two years, but these few pounds a year can really start to add up. The best bet to keep the weight off is to mind your portion sizes and up your movement, which is good advice for any time of year.
InBody is one of our favorite new tools and we have it at both of our physical therapy locations because the information is so valuable. If you're interested in having the tools to crush your goals and finally understand your own body structure then InBody is exactly the tool you're looking for.
You're a road warrior.
One of the New York elite.
The loops of Central Park are your playground and you know the city streets of Manhattan's Upper West Side like the back of your hand.

Everything a runner needs to train hard and work smart.
Every few months we like to bond with the running community and support their hard preparation for world-class races (The New York City Marathon!!) by offering complimentary running sessions for one day only.
Swimsuit season may be over, but that doesn't mean you should suffer the standard holiday weight gain.
You might already be planning those Holiday parties for work and family fun and we all know what that means....it's time to pull out that Little Black Dress and the fitted slacks. It also means you'll have lots of delicious foods to feast on and cold winter weather to lure you in doors and away from your daily run around the Central Park loop.
It's that time of the year again folks. That's right.
Time for our complimentary runner's clinic!
We've become known in New York City for our physical therapy protocols to get runners back to sport after injury or surgery and we are opening up our Lincoln Square clinic doors to share the love.
When we get new equipment at Sloane Stecker it's always after exhaustive research and with an aim to round out our world class gym with a tool that will help our patients and clients achieve the goals they're working towards. You'll find machines developed by NASA engineers, the latest diagnostic equipment available, and tools used by pros around the world. Our latest addition to our Westchester office is a favorite, trusty tool in our New York City physical therapy clinic- the InBody.
Not to be overshadowed by its showy neighbor down south, Westchester has some bells and whistles of its own and the riverfront view from our physical therapy clinic there is definitely worth the visit.
World class training equipment is just one of the reasons to check out our New York City and Westchester physical therapy clinics, but boy oh boy, is it ever a good one!
While it is true that all you need to consider yourself a runner is the open road and the will to pound the pavement, it's equally true that the right machine can revolutionize your fitness goals.
You're crushing your goals like a champ.
Morning runs around Central Park's loop are your playground and you're seriously contemplating signing up for The New York City Marathon.
Here's one fitness tip that will help take your fitness prowess over the edge. One word:
