When January hits, it can be tempting to throw away the remaining Christmas cookies and commit to a strict regimen of skimpy salads and green juice. The truth is, that might be the worst idea!
We know that there’s no replacing the amazing feeling of walking out of Corefire after a tough session, but we wanted to make sure you are all set to sweat even if you can’t make it to the studio! The holiday season is certainly busy, and often comes along with travel visiting family and friends. Take the workout with you on the road (or in your bedroom!) when you can’t make it to the real thing. All you need is a couple of paper plates (for carpeting), small towels (for hardwood floor), or exercise sliding discs if you have them. Set your phone timer to run and keep it handy - you’ll need to watch the clock! (Now you know how your favorite Coach feels.)
It seems like without fail, every year as soon as Thanksgiving hits, whatever healthy habits we’ve been faithfully become a distant memory. It’s as if we’ve never before had a piece of pumpkin pie or hunk of peppermint bark, and almost as if we’ll never have the opportunity to indulge again in the future (as in, next year). Not to mention our workout routines go out the window. (Unless, of course, you’re hitting the Corefire Holiday Challenge!)
Thanksgiving is the time of the year not only to give thanks for what we have, but to reach into our hearts to help those who may not be as fortunate. Here is our annual round-up of local Ridgewood and Montclair charities that are in need of not only monetary donations, but volunteers to help with their missions.
It can seem like everywhere you turn (at least on social media!), there’s some new extreme diet or detox protocol promising pounds lost, more energy, and the ever elusive “flat tummy”.
Any avid runner will tell you that there are few things in life better than the endorphin rush you get coasting along an open road. Also common shared experience for seasoned runners: injuries. Although running is a affordable and effective way to train your cardiovascular system, the stress of the repetitive forward motion, not to mention the impact of pounding the pavement (or treadmill), can wreak havoc on your joints, muscles, and other tissues.
It’s back to school, back to work, back to the grind. You may not head to the beach on the weekends, but there is a ton of fun to be had in our area. We have a roundup of some of the best events to check out this fall.
Whether or not you’ve been hitting the hot pavement all summer or are just dipping your toes into the running pool, our friends at Racefaster in Ridgewood and Paramus have compiled some of their best tips to improving your running and racing game.
Today we are continuing our Local Spotlight Series on amazing and incredible members of our #fuegofamily. We are featuring local Ridgewood abstract artist, Tori Schoeler. She has four children under the age of 10 and has found the time to return to her artistic roots, pick up her paint brushes and create some of the most coveted pieces in Bergen County. We sat down with this busy woman, in between her weekly Corefire sessions, to find out a little about her and her inspiration.
