Poor Dr. Oz

Poor Dr. Oz!

I’m sure you’ve seen the latest in the news. Dr. Oz got GRILLED!!!! Reading the news prompted me to give you The Fit Fem perspective on this topic of weight loss in a bottle. I mean ya knoowww I’m super passionate about this stuff.

I don’t believe that Dr. Oz is a mean, horrible man, as the media turned him out to be. Quite the contrary, I think he’s an alright fella that tries to do right by the people.

Don’t know what I’m referring to? Here’s the scoop.

Camera, Lights, Action? I’ve Got News For You…

post image

I’ve recently declared my new Fit Fem venture. It’s called ChoreoKick. To help promote it, I’ve been shooting videos so that way others who have never taken my classes before can experience the energy and magic and all the fun we have together. Now, I’ve gotten some feedback from my students who feel uncomfortable being on camera. Here is my video response.

I’m Coming Out.

I’m finally coming out!

I can’t help but think of that Diana Ross song, “I’m Coming Out” as I’m writing you this week. (Before my time, I know!)

The time has come for me
To break out of the shell
I have to shout

That I’m coming out

I’ve been in complete hiding. I’ve been denying what my soul has wanted to express … for The. Longest. Time.

Are you what I call the ‘Chronic Get Back on Track-er?

post image

You know what I’m talking about. You choose a fitness program or diet, get really excited your first day and perhaps the whole week, then you “fall off track” and “getting back on track” is your mission in life.

You see it wasn’t that long ago you were extremely excited and energetic to lead a healthy lifestyle. You know what’s good for you and you say NOW is the time to FINALLY do this! You diligently track your cals on My Fitness Pal, you beast it out at the gym (ehhh maybe beast is not a good word, but at least you took some workout selfies to keep yourself accountable) and you say N to the O when your friends invite you out for dinner and drinks. Let’s face it, you don’t want to be tempted. Bet you’re so proud of yourself!

You are perfect!

I say it again, you are PERFECT.

Don’t worry.

I’m not going to sucker you into a weight loss challenge or boot camp.  Tis the season right? Even though it still feels like winter here in NY, spring is on our mind, which means only one thing – it’s crunch time for the bikini bod.

But like I said, I’m not going to sucker you into another program that promises you will get your bikini body in 6 weeks. In fact, I REFUSE to do that to you.

Interview with Vinnie Tortorich: America’s Angriest Trainer!

post image

I had the absolute pleasure of doing an interview with Vinnie Tortorich to help promote his new book #‎FitnessConfidential‬ which by the way is up for an Audy award (Audible.com) and is an Amazon bestseller. I read the book not once but twice it was that good!!!

If you don’t know who Vinnie is, allow me to brag for him a little bit. Once I’m done, you can go ahead and Google the guy.

Vinnie has branded himself as America’s Angriest Trainer. What he is so angry about? Simple- the obesity epidemic in this country and the misguidance and misinformation within the fitness industry. (If there’s one thing you should know about me, you should know that I tend to “rant” a lot about this, especially on Facebook!)

Fat Loss Dangers

post image

Boy did I get a reaction on FB! I’ll show it to you in a hot sec but let me explain the scenario.

After finishing posting a pic of my new favorite green powder, which I add to my green smoothies, I scrolled down my newsfeed and ran into not 1, but 3 statuses about ‘nutritional cleansing’.

OK PET PEEVE!!!! (I will withhold the name of the company) I have huge disdain towards a company that markets and sells fat loss through “nutritional cleansing”. Essentially this company (and many other ones) promotes shakes and pills with eating only one meal a day (usually a salad because you know real food has real calories and we’re not allowed to have calories when we are trying to lose weight… GEEZ) and then encourages customers who have lost weight to become “nutritional cleansing coaches”. 

I’m gonna hate on them right now. First, I used this product because of its promise of rapid fat loss. I took it = I got sick = Lupus. Second, the idea of regular people becoming coaches without investing in real education about food and its effects on the body makes my skin boil.

When I posted my opinion on FB, I couldn’t believe the responses I received. Check it out: 21 comments, 60 likes and counting…
