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?
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.
If you begin a conversation about alcohol, you’re likely to get a chorus of varied opinions.
Your one friend swears that her daily glass of red wine will ward off cardiovascular disease, even if it’s at the expense of her six pack abs. Meanwhile, your gym buddy has a zero-alcohol policy in an effort to remain as lean as possible and avoid the dreaded “beer belly”.
Is it really possible to consume alcohol and still maintain a healthy body weight and composition?
The answer is somewhat complicated and likely depends on your ultimate goals.
Let’s delve a little deeper into the relationship between alcohol and body composition.
Cirque du Soleil is one of the most famous theater production companies in the world. The company began in 1984 with a small troupe of performersnear Quebec City and quickly became renowned for its striking mix of circus arts (without animals) and street performance. Now in its third decade, Cirque du Soleil has 19 shows that perform around the world. Each brings a blend of imaginative costumes, lighting, music, and of course, gravity-defying performers.
To ensure talented performers can withstand an incredible 476 shows per year on average, the Cirque du Soleil team needed a reliable way to incorporate body composition analysis to support performance.
Head of Performance Science for Cirque du Soleil’s, Bryan Burnstein researched several options and ultimately decided on tracking body composition analysis using InBody because he felt it delivered the most value to his artists and operational teams. See how InBody helped some of the world’s most talented actors, singers, and artists become more durable performers by optimizing their body composition.

It's National Running Day and we love the sport so much we are going to celebrate all week!
First, an ode to running. How do we love thee? Let us count the ways!

It's that time of the year again- beaches are getting crowded and the Hamptons are waiting for New Yorkers to get up and out of the heat. Maybe you didn't have time to get your laps in around the Central Park loop or log your running miles with your training group like you'd planned, but that doesn't mean you can't confidently work your way into your swimsuit. Body Sculpting to the rescue!
The "anti-gravity treadmill" was originally invented by Robert Whalen, a biomechanics researcher at NASA Ames Research Center, in the 1990s. Whalen designed a treadmill that would let astronauts run in a more natural way. The design, patented in 1992, encloses a treadmill and the astronaut's lower body in an airtight chamber. Lowering the air pressure inside the chamber pushes the astronaut down, simulating gravity.
Running has long been a popular sport due to its accessibility and cardiovascular benefits. The styles of running are as varied and diverse as the individuals who take part in the sport; from sprinting to marathoning to even a light jog at the park after work, running is a sport in which almost anyone can partake in.
I lift, do cardio, and eat clean-- but I can’t seem to build more muscle.
I dropped a few pounds for the first few weeks, but nothing has changed since then.
I’ve been running three times a week; yet my body looks the same!
If any of these statements sound like you and you’re frustrated by the lack of body composition progress, you might be wondering if you’ve been doing everything wrong.
What is really going on?
You're a killer in the board room and have your work/life balance down like a boss, but unfortunately that doesn't mean you always have time to squeeze in the cardio and mind your diet. It only takes a New York minute to grab a hot dog from a street vendor and your busy schedule is starting to take its toll on your waist line. Fortunately, body sculpting can fit into your busy schedule. In just one twenty-five minute session you can blast fat cells for good in focused trouble areas.
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.
People like to say there are no short-cuts in pursuing greater levels of health and fitness, and they're right. What they're not telling you, however, is there are some great tools to help you achieve your fitness goals faster and more effectively. New York City's newest fitness tool is exactly what you need to accelerate your weight loss goals.
You're doing everything right. You count your calories, you work out, you drink a lot of water, and take that early morning run through Central Park- but you're still not losing weight. Even skipping the subway and walking extra New York City blocks doesn't seem to be making the difference on the scale.
Still can't believe body sculpting is non-invasive??
SculpSure's expert doctors give their professional medical feedback on the recovery process for the body contouring procedures and the news is good!
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.
