Event Recap: NY Fit Fest

Long Beach, New York was home again to the 2nd Annual New York Fit Fest. This event combines beach days with fitness fun – sounds amazing! Workout classes on the beach are exactly our style, so this event was marked on our calendars. All day long there were dozens of classes held right on the beach front by local fitness instructors. There was something for every fitness lover from yoga to spin and pole dancing to boot camps.

An all day pass for this event cost $75. Attendees were able to pre-register for classes which were running all day long, plus you could take as many as you like! Spin classes were held on top of the Allegria Hotel, TRX classes in the sand, and boot-camps trudging through the ocean. The vendor village was set up on the beach with everything from local studios to clothing companies to health food brands. I spent the afternoon hanging out with my BeachFIT Training family where we were hosting atomic push-up challenges alongside our tent neighbors, AMP Training, who had squat and bench press contests going all day long.

As I was working with the BeachFIT team for the event, I was able to explore within the vendor village, but did not sign up for the all day pass. I asked a long time friend of B&B, Stacy Player (@splayer11), to share about her day taking classes and soaking up the fun. Stacy signed up for CycleBar, Hot Pilates Secret, and more! Read on to learn about the Fit Fest experience.

Last Saturday I had the opportunity to attend the NY Fit Festival in Long Beach with three friends, combining two of my favorite things, fitness and the beach.  The morning began with a cycling class on the roof of the Allegria Hotel, taught by a bubbly instructor named Gabby from CycleBar Garden City.  As soon as I walked out onto the rooftop pool deck, I felt like I was at a party, having been greeted by enthusiastic staff members and upbeat music. Before the class started, I couldn’t help but walk over to the ledge of the roof and take in the panoramic views of the ocean.  It was the perfect way to start the day.  After getting settled onto the bike, Gabby introduced herself and the DJ who would be spinning for the class. Once we got pedaling, my glutes and legs started to burn from the sprints, jumps, and hills; but Gabby’s contagious energy and the DJ’s motivating playlist made it easier to push through the burn. Having a DJ right there in class with us was an added bonus, since he was able to manipulate the beat and tempo based on Gabby’s instructions. When the class was over, we headed over to the braid station to get our hair braided by stylists from Red Door Spa. It was a fun break in between classes, where we had the opportunity to relax and walk around to different vendors.

After getting our hair braided, we walked over to set up for our next class, Yoga Pilates. We laid down our mats and sat in the sunshine waiting for the class to begin.  Kaley Young, the instructor, began by introducing herself to the group. Kaley is the owner and instructor at Hot Pilates Secret, which was started by her mother in 2005. In 2012, she lost her mother to breast cancer.  Five days later, Kaley taught her mom’s class and decided, with the support of her father, to continue the journey that her mother began. This past year, Kaley lost her father to 9/11 related illness. Her inspiring story set the tone for a peaceful and self-reflecting experience that Kaley began taking us through. The first half of the class was yoga-inspired, with classic poses, stretching, and breathing exercises. Kaley then transitioned into leading us through pilates-based exercises, with movements such as the double leg stretch, plank leg lift, and the teaser. These exercises engaged our core and helped develop our flexibility and strength. Meditation-style exercises were also infused throughout the class, which helped connect the mind, body and soul. The beach was the perfect backdrop to class, with the ocean air and waves crashing around us.

My third and final class of the day I ended up taking unexpectedly after I was persuaded by one of the instructors. Soccer Shape is a soccer-inspired fitness class developed by professional athletes that have played around the world. It’s essentially a “bootcamp with a soccer twist.” I was intrigued by the concept of the class because I have played sports my entire life, including college, and spent my adolescence at practices doing similar drills to those done during the class. As soon as I saw the agility ladder, cones, and soccer balls, I knew I would be hooked.

We participated in various high paced drills and fun challenges, which incorporated fast feet ladder runs, cone weaves, sprints with soccer balls, and plyometric stations. The dynamic movements and fast pace of the class pushed me to my limits in a good way. We also partnered with a buddy for resistance band exercises.  One particular fun and challenging exercise required us to loop a resistance band around your partner’s chest and hold both ends in either hand. Our partner sprinted across the beach while we held the band and pulled back on it, making it challenging for our partners to run. I happened to be partnered with a very strong guy, who pulled me across the beach so quick, it felt like I was walking a large energetic puppy. When it was my turn to run with the resistance band, the resistance was so strong that I felt as if I was running in slow motion. I jokingly told him that I should get extra points for pulling him across the beach! Doing the exercises in the sand created an extra challenge, as it targeted muscles that I don’t typically use on conventional surfaces.

We ended the class like most team practices do, with a group huddle and a cheer. It caused some of us to say “good job” and high five each other at the end, solidifying a team atmosphere. Soccer Shape was by far the most fun class of the day, as the coaches’ energy and sports-related fitness activities had everyone laughing and cheering each other on throughout the class. I felt like I was back at lacrosse practice, being part of a team again. I also felt like I was on an episode of MTV’s “The Challenge.” (In. My. Dreams) – Stacy Player

Run the Beach to Beacon Like a Pro

Last week, I adventured up to Portland, Maine for my 5th year in a row to celebrate Beach to Beacon weekend! Runner’s World Magazine has previously named Beach2Beacon on their Top 20 bucket list races [that aren’t marathons]. This is only my 4th year running the race (I am practically a legacy runner at this point- HA!) because my first registration was not fast enough. It sells out immediately so be sure to make your calendars for that important Friday morning in mid March. The registration process changed this year from a first come, first serve basis to one where you were put into a virtual “line” which in my opinion sucked a lot. Mostly because nothing was loading on my computer or phone and I ended up in the lottery. If you can’t type your credit card number fast enough, you don’t want to get in that bad! I digress…

Okay so step one you got in the race! Now, it’s cold outside in New England in March so it seems like a good idea… remember that when race day rolls around on the first Saturday in August… remember all the snow on the ground when you registered- it will help cool you off. They offer two days of race bib pick up helps with the volume of runners cramming into Cape Elizabeth High School (over 7,000 runners and then some). Fun fact: you will always get an L.L. Bean gift card. It’s the most coveted swag bag prize for any New England runner lol. The race shirts have also been blue (not white- Alleluia!) for the last two years- after talking with several other runners we are so hopeful that this stays the trend. Bib number, shirt, car magnet, L.L. Bean, check!! Okay, time to head home or to your hotel, eat some pasta and get some sleep! You have to be on those shuttle buses bright and early!

Race morning comes along and you basically have two options: runner parking at the start or hopping on the shuttle bus from Cape Eizabeth HS. We have always hopped on the shuttle bus without a hassle of parking or worrying about time. Maybe try to use the restroom before leaving the house to decrease the chances of having to pee in the woods. There are a ton of porta-potties, but there are way more runners than stalls. Enjoy the time in the start corral knowing you’re about the conquer the same course as many great, professional runners: Joan Benoit-Samuelson, MEB, Molly Huddle, Ben True, and the list goes on.

Course strategy: Do not send it in Mile 1 even though it’s flat. Save a little for the end because Miles 4.5-6 are very up and down. Smile for the cameraman on the left at Mile 4.6. And do not miss the bacon at Mile 5.

Post race knowledge is a bit limited… I have no idea how people get shuttled back to their cars. Since this is a point to point race (not a loop), the start and finish lines are 6.2 miles apart. I have been fortunate enough to run with my bestie whose parents house stares directly at the Portland Head Light aka the finish line. We can literally walk from the finish line back to their house where donuts, snacks, and a cold showers await our crew of hungry runners. If you run with us, it’s like being VIP 😉

Listening to Your Body During Summer Runs

What comes to mind when you think of summer running? Sweat, awkward tan lines, early wake up calls? Agreed. Summer runs can be brutal between finding a cool time to go for a run and trying not to chafe in shorts. While it seems silly to talk about, there comes a point where listening to your body is of the utmost importance!

Heat safety is a huge factor for summer sports- your body has cooling mechanisms, such as sweating, to help dissipate heat. With summer runs, it may seem inevitable that you’ll end up having to head outside on a day with high humidity or when the sun is strongest. Especially when that day is race day.

Twice in the last year I can recall having some degree of heat exhaustion- it’s not pretty. The most recent being this past week at Beach 2 Beacon where the 100% humidity forced me to pull back my pace and save my goal time for the next race. I listened to my body, chugged waters mid and post race, and even still woke up that night with chills and nausea. Water. Rest Repeat.

Chicago Finish Line 2017

The worse case was last year at the Chicago Marathon (and I know I have never talked about that heartbreak on here- so this is a piece of my story). Unfavorable running weather for October- high 70s, 80 something percent humidity, and not a cloud in the sky- a runner’s nightmare. It was all going well up to mile 17 until I got tunnel vision and an unquenchable thirst. Mile 20.5 was when my friend found me from the sideline, hugged me, and said I felt cold despite how sweaty I was. Um what??? I kept moving… barely forward and still in my “tunnel.” This should have been a “listen to your body” moment, but the thought of not crossing the finish line broke my heart.

My point here is that heat exhaustion and heat stroke are very real and very scary. Be sure to take precautions to keep yourself safe during these last hot weeks of summer.

  • Try running early before the sun is too strong
  • Avoid days with high humidity or heat index
  • Drink plenty of water before, during, and after- recover with electrolytes
  • Know the signs/symptoms of both heat exhaustion and stroke.
  • Listen to your body!!

Event Recap: Studio Tone It Up Live NYC

Last fall, Tone It Up took their workouts on the road for their first ever tour. B&B traveled to Philly (& NYC) for the event & had such a blast! (Check out our recap of last year’s event here!) This year TIU decided to take it on the road again and hosted live workout events in LA & NYC. We had such a good time last year that we decided to join in the fun once more. Tickets for Studio Tone It Up Live went on sale a few months ago & were offered in three pricing tiers: General Admission, Fast Pass, & VIP (the lower priced options sold out pretty quickly, but we were able to get our hands on some fast pass tickets.

The event opened at 9AM with the first workout of the day scheduled for 10AM- we planned to show up early because putting your yoga mat down inside reserves your spot inside. Upon arrival to the venue, three lines were forming, one for each ticketing tier. With a bit of chaos while getting our tickets scanned last year, it was great to see the organization of the ticket lines ahead of time. There were also some girls working who expedited the process by scanning tickets and handing out bracelets & swag bags, all while we waited for the venue to open. Once the doors opened, VIP was able to head in first followed by Fast Pass holders then GA. However, there were sectioned areas for each group with VIP ticket holders having access to the front area closest to the stage.

At these TIU live workout events, we have learned that second only to putting your mat down, is heading to the shop for clothes. There were a few exclusive clothing styles specifically for the tour including both TIU gear & Avocado brand tops & leggings. If you aren’t interested in purchasing anything extra, then this time was perfect to line up for one of the pampering stations! TIU partnered with Victoria’s Secret Sport for a fun photo op, bra measuring, and freebies- you opened a random locker & found a prize such as hats, leggings, bras, and socks. There was also a braid bar from Priv with stylists who worked some magic to create sporty hairstyles and a back massage station with masseuses from Zeel to work out your tired muscles. Heading outside of the venue, you could find a few snacks vendors who were giving away samples, bags, coupons & more!

A few things to note about what you received with each ticket: GA got you into the venue without a swag bag. With the Fast Pass you received a swag bag & it got you into a shorter line for the braid bar & massage lines. The VIP ticket holders were in the same line as the Fast Pass holders, however they received a swag bag with extra goodies, access to the VIP lounge with Ketel One drinks, and a meet & greet with K&K. Several ladies were a little upset with the VIP experience because of the meet & greet lines and the fact that said lines overlapped with some of the workouts.

Besides all the fun extras, dance parties with besties, & hugs from girls you had not seen since last year’s tour, exercise did happen! There was a whole schedule of workouts about 30 minutes apart led by K&K and the Studio Tone It Up trainers. K&K started the morning [at 10:30am] with their total body workout and a reading from their new book. The workouts were all done with your body weight or a mini band and you could come & go from your mat as you wished. Louise did most (or a least a little bit of each) workout & Pam prioritized getting in the massage line. The trainers provided us with solid workouts, which were challenging, fun, and varied so there was something for everyone. Because the first workout started behind schedule, the rest of the day was a little off with less time in between the workouts.

The lines for each of the activities was a little bit aggressive- the fast pass ticket helped cut down the waiting time, but timing when you waited was important. The other issue was the food truck- apparently the food truck broke down on the way to the venue- which left us with one vendor offering pricey smoothie bowls. While our swag bags had almonds and protein bars, the only other food option (for a 5 hour event) were the TIU protein smoothie samples being handed out throughout the day. We were starving & immediately headed to brunch lol.

Overall, the experience at the TIU Tour was not about the braids, food, or free sports bras- it’s all about the opportunity to connect with other girls in the TIU Community. Especially those who may not live nearby or even some who you’ve only connected with through Instagram. Of course it’s amazing to have the VIP experience meet & greet, but even without splurging on that ticket, we had an amazing day with our friends! We learned last year that it’s much more of a social event than a workout event- which is totally fine! This type of event is all about what you make of it.

Rainy Race Day Tips

AHH! The beauty of road races in the great outdoors! Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… we run outside all year round. Some days there is sunshine, clouds, a cool breeze, rain, snow, sleet, humidity… okay so it’s not always going to be a simple jog in the park. Unfortunately there is nothing you can do about the forecast, but you can be prepared for race day and have a smart race!

The weather for the 2018 Brooklyn Half is looking to be a wet one! Besides dodging puddles along the course, there are a few things you can do to make sure you have a good race.

 

Rainy Race Day Tips:

  1. Wear a trash bag to the start line. Simple enough to keep you dry until it’s go-time. Since you are going to ditch it anyway, save money on the plastic poncho and opt for a stylish Hefty bag. All you have to do is cut holes for your head and arms. Not only will it keep you dry, but you’ll stay warmer in the rain (especially on a cool morning).
  2. Wear a hat for the race. Face it- you will get wet. This is probably our best advice ever. Wearing a hat will keep the rain out of your eyes. An old baseball cap works just fine, but keep in mind that with longer distances your body will heat up. Opt for a hat made of breathable, tech material to keep the rain off your face but let some heat escape out of the top!img_4022
  3. Check a bag. Unless you are going from the finish line straight to your car, you’re going to want to check a bag with dry clothes, socks, shoes- everything! Standing around cold & soggy is probably the worst feeling.  If you have room, sneak a tiny umbrella in there to keep you dry as you cheer everyone on who finishes after you 🙂

Make sure you have everything you need the night before! Check the weather, drink some water, and get some rest. Here’s the link to our complete race day packing list!

See you at the finish line!

Event Recap: Tone It Up Tour

The fitness world seems to have exploded over the last week with all the fun and excitement of the Tone It Up Tour! TIU is a huge online fitness community and the two co-founders have taken the sweaty fun and brought it on the road. Obviously, we had to go! The first 4 stops of the tour were DC, NYC, Boston, and Philly. Pam attended NYC on Friday evening then we both traveled with our girls to Philadelphia for some meetups on Saturday and the tour on Sunday. Definitely recommend going to a meet up the day before- especially to go hang out in a new city!

Since there are still 11 more cities left in the TIU Tour, we wanted to give you our inside scoop to make sure you have an amazing time just like we did 🙂 Whether you are going GA or VIP, it is going to be so much fun. Just remember, this fitness festival is going to be what you make of it ❤

Step 1: Getting in line. Honestly, the line moved so quickly that it was smooth sailing into the venue. The line will get long though, so don’t wait to arrive until the doors open. We brought cards with us and played a few rounds of “Asshole” to pass the time. Once you get in, you’ll get your swag bag & bracelet then head to the stage and put your yoga mat down so you and your girls have a good spot together.

Step 2: Choose your activities strategically so you don’t have to wait in line. Zeel has massage tables set up for a nice 5 minute back massage 🙂 The line was short so we hopped on it immediately. Keep in mind there is also a braid bar (that line got super long and stayed that way all afternoon) and merchandise for sale. If you want merch then that has to be your first stop because they have a limited supply of sizes/colors of each item.

Step 3: Each tour stop has 3 workouts which are about 25-30 minutes long. Core Power yoga, an ass-kicking by Jillian Michaels, and some booty/core work with K&K. Feel free to skip workouts, branch away from your squad, and do your own thing! We skipped the yoga session and took that opportunity to hit up the photo booths, sample Krave and kombucha, make rose quartz beaded bracelets, and more! Pam and her cranky hamstring didn’t do much of the workouts at the NYC stop and had the best time ever! Partially due to the rose garden and in part due to all the amazing women who were all hanging out!


Step 4: If you have a VIP ticket then the rose garden is going to be a blast! They stamp your arm for meet & greets then call you by groups- aka no crazy line. In the meantime, you get to chill with your friends, drink rose, and hit up the denim bar. You can also come and go from the VIP area back out to the festival and peruse the vendors that are set up.

If you go in just looking for K&K, you’re going to be disappointed. This tour is all about the girls and the TIU Community. It’s the perfect opportunity to connect with girls who may not live in your city or you have only spoken with through Instagram. Because Philly & NYC are so close, there were a bunch of girls we knew and also so many opportunities to make new friends!

PS: Bring snacks! There are food trucks stationed among the vendors, but if you’re ballin’ on a budget, you can bring in food. We brought almonds and protein bars to hold us over after all those workouts 🙂

Who else went to the TIU Tour this past weekend?! We would love to connect with you! Share your favorite part of the festival below ❤ Who is going in the next few weeks? Where? What are you most excited about?!

The Longest Run of My Life

Fall marathons = summer training. Long sweaty runs in the August heat. As the days have been getting hotter, the runs just keep getting longer. Both Pam and I have been tackling double digit runs every weekend. As some of you know, the Chicago Marathon will be my first marathon (AHHHHH!!) and a few weekends ago, we joined up with the New York Flyers to log our miles for one of their long training runs.

The NY Flyers running club hosts a long training run called the “3 Bridges Run” which is held twice annually. The first time was August 27, and the next long run is on October 14. This training run winds throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens before heading back into the city. For those of you running the NYC Marathon this November, it is great because you hit the Pulaski and 59th Street bridges at the same mile markers during both this run and the marathon. Personally, I found that the best part is that you don’t have to run alone!21083374_1018493478287790_2657366879007573187_o

Honestly, the hardest part of my training so far is that I have been heading out on my long runs alone. A close second is waking up at strange hours of the morning to “beat the heat,” while sacrificing late summer nights with my friends has been pretty tough. Every weekend as I tally up miles, it keeps becoming my longest run ever. While my Garmin is pretty proud of me, that has been my silent success.

Running with the Flyers, however, gave me people to talk to; I ran into old friends and sometimes I just listened to others tell stories while we ran. We talked about what races they were training for, who had done Chicago, New York, Berlin, or never ran a marathon. We were cheered on by the volunteers who graciously gave up their Sunday morning to hand out Gatorade and watch my slather myself in Body Glide. You guys are the real MVPs! And as we continued on, encouraging each other and simply enjoying the mile we were running, I celebrated my longest run ever 🙂

We are 5 weeks out from Chicago, people. Five. Weeks.

Running Sucks, but only for 5 Minutes

IMG_0565Okay, your shoes are tied and new playlist is lit, it’s time to go for a run… you can do this. *Insert some mantras about being strong* Music starts and you’re getting yourself warmed up. Let’s go- one foot in front of the other. Your heart rate starts to pick up and you begin breathing a little bit faster. Keep moving those legs… heart rate is still climbing as you’re trying to catch your breath. OMG. Why am I running? It’s only been one minute?! Keep going, keep moving. As you continue running it doesn’t seem to be getting any better… Only 2 minutes?! How can I keep moving *I am strong* How does anyone do this for miles and miles?! You approach the three minute mark and start to fall into a rhythm. Your heart rate is up but you don’t quite feel out of breath anymore. What is this magic?!

Your cardiovascular system is especially crucial during exercise as oxygen demand and waste production in your active muscles increase. The initial responses of your cardiovascular system allow your body to meet the increased demands placed on it with exercise. The average resting heart rate is about 60-80 beats per minute. At the onset of exercise, your heart rate and breathing rate begin to pick up to meet the increased demand for oxygen by your body. Your heart rate is proportional to the intensity of the exercise- as intensity increases, so will your heart rate. Going from walking to a high intensity activity such as running will quickly increase your heart rate.

race_1539_photo_40365599

Side note… is anyone else running the Beach2Beacon on August 5th??

As you settle into a rhythm and maintain your pace, your heart rate will even out at a certain number of beats per minute. Your breathing rate will follow suit while both remain elevated above resting levels. This plateau is referred to as “steady state” and is the optimal heart rate for your body to meet the demands of the work (running) which you are doing. Steady state takes a few minutes to achieve and is not the same for everyone. For elite athletes, their bodies may be able to adapt to these physical demands quickly and reach steady state under 3 minutes. For those who may not be as physically fit, it could take upwards of 4-5 minutes to reach this plateau. Those who are not as conditioned may also have a higher heart rate at the same exercise intensity (in this case, running pace).

Let’s be honest, those first few minutes of running might suck. As you continue to run for a little bit longer with each week, you will continue to build your endurance. Increased cardiorespiratory endurance (heart and lungs) relates to the body’s ability to sustain prolonged, dynamic exercise using large muscle groups. In this case, we are talking about running longer distances and being able to deliver oxygen rich blood to those working muscles. Being able to maintain this level for longer periods of time shows improvements in aerobic fitness.

Anyone out there new to running? Any of our experienced runners have a story to share? Maybe something about your fitness or training journey! Share it in the comments below!
