Here's one fitness tip that will help take your fitness prowess over the edge. One word:
The most important thing I've learned about nutrition is you need to deserve your carbs.

This one is for those weekend warriors who are racking up hours in New York City board rooms or putting in serious time at home during the week. One of the big secrets to a long and happy life is to keep your body conditioned and moving well. Skipping workouts during the week might be necessary, but it does mean you need to pack them into your weekend. In short, you've got to earn that brunch every New Yorker loves so much.
You're busy. We get it.
A New York Minute doesn't mean you have more minutes in a day, it means you know the value of your time and you don't have any to waste on ineffective exercises.
With that in mind, here are four moves featured at Men's Fitness Magazine that we love to get your weekly workout routine kicked off right.
Looking to build strength by integrating pull ups into your routing....but you can't quite get your chin up to the bar?
No worries. Negatives in physical training are known for their massive effect on the body and this technique can also be applied to building strength to full pull-ups.
For the past twenty-two years Jennifer Aniston has been stunning and wowing audiences with her sleek physique. Part of Aniston's appeal is her "girl next door" beauty and the impression that her long legs can be achieved without the glitz and glam (or big bucks) of the rich and famous.
Jennifer has always credited her fitness routine of yoga, pilates, and cardio to her timeless beauty, but her newest fitness secret is taking Hollywood by storm: Physical Therapy.
There's nothing like Spring in New York and a lazy Saturday morning followed by brunch with friends on a side walk in the Upper West Side. Unfortunately those pancakes and huevos rancheros are packed with calories and can really throw off your fitness and wellness goals. Here's how you can beat those lazy Saturday morning calories without leaving the lazy solitude of your own home.
The main key to success is consistency. Seventeen days into the new year and how are those resolutions going? Hopefully you're still hitting those resolutions with grit and resolve, but if you can feel yourself starting to falter, here are some tips for you.
Burpees are an awesome, full-body movement that are a killer addition to any high intensity work out. Think about it- you've got a squat, an explosive jump, a push-up, and another explosive movement to finish. This dynamic move is hitting your major muscle groups and when done to pace it will give you the cardio burst you need to stay heart healthy. The more intense the movement, the longer the impact in both your overall health and your daily calorie burn.
Winter has arrived but you won't let that stop you from hitting the pavement and logging your weekly miles. Whether you hit those New York City streets and brave the weather or you opt for indoor runs, we've got some great advice for you to keep your running regimen strong in these cold winter months.
Spring is quickly turning to summer and you still haven't been hitting the ground running like you promised yourself you would once those long, cold winter months ended. Catching a runner's bug is no easy task, but with these three easy steps you'll have a full-blown summer flu in no time flat.
No one likes going to see the doctor, whether that doctor is the dentist, general practitioner, or even a physical therapist. Even though everyone knows preventative care is always a better option than fixing something once it is broken, there's still a reluctance to take a chance and go see the doc before things get really bad. What if regular trips to your favorite physical therapist could save you from a costly (both in time and money...) surgery later on down the line? Perhaps then you'd be more likely to call in and schedule your appointment sooner rather than later.
Personal training for general health and training for competitive athletes are completely different beasts.
Luckily, at Sloane Stecker Lincoln Square we have, quite literally, the best of both these worlds to offer. Personal training for the elite Upper West Sider looking to keep their edge in both the boardroom and the weight room won't be disappointed AND those who are training to compete professionally in their sport of choice will find that competitive edge they've been looking for.
With the help of experienced physical therapists and this awesome indoor bike you'll be able to test aerobic capacity to optimize your performance by maintaining specific heart rates in target training zones. For those who are really gung-ho there's also the option of a 20 minute threshold test so any rider (competitive soul cycler and semi-pro contender alike) can know the highest physical intensity they can maintain for one hour.
We're rolling into the third week of January and, I don't know about you, but I looked back at my New Year's resolutions and realized I had already forgotten about a few of them. That's right, not only did I just not make a plan to accomplish these goals, I actually forgot I had even set them. Just because a resolution hits a hiccup early on doesn't mean you need to bail on them this early in the game. If you've found yourself in the same predicament, here are some ideas on how to see your resolutions through to the end of the year.
Coming to physical therapy BEFORE you have an ALC injury?? Sounds crazy, doesn't it? However, when you think about the benefits it starts to make a lot of sense. First of all, injury prevention is only going to make you better, faster, stronger, and more competitive in your sport of choice. It's like personal training, but with an expert not only in physical fitness but also in body mechanics.
