yoo sun park slt megaformer class review

Where: SLT (Strengthen Lengthen Tone), 37 West 57th Street, New York, NY

Good start, but I'm looking for what's to come

Years after SLT first opened their doors, I'd still consider taking the megaformer with me if I could only take ONE exercise method to a deserted island. And that says a ton because the city is overflowing with pickings and I am one picky-ass blogger. So, I've got, shall we say, high standards when it comes to the teaching of this golden method. Yoo-sun has got a bunch of the fundamentals down pat, but I know she can crank out more performance to bump-up the class experience....  [More]

CrossFit Lite

Y'all know by now that I love CrossFit so much that my first child (or future pet turtles) will probably be named Hang Clean or Power Snatch...and no, I will not be offended if you take that as an early trigger to call social services. But sometimes, I really miss that heavy cardio action you get from a bootcamp style class - especially now that Barry's Bootcamp is no longer on ClassPass. (BOO!!!) While B|X is intended to be kind of a bridge between the two, I am not yet completely convinced that this class scratches my bootcamp itch....  [More]

lindsay hilscher yoga vida class review

Where: Yoga Vida, 99 University Place, New York, NY

This Yogi's on Fire

We here at RYB destroy our bodies for our own pleasure and for the benefit of our loyal readers. None of us is especially superhuman; we're just a bunch of dorks who choose to work out instead of have a normal social life. Personally, I often forget to take time to care for my bodymachine and lately decided to commit myself to incorporate a little yoga to stretch and repair the muscles I work so hard to break down. Lindsay's Sunday night Candlelit Flow was exactly what I needed....  [More]
