(For Thanksgiving)

While everyone tries to find the healthy recipes, or tries to avoid the dessert table, celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak actually provides a more common sense approach to the holiday, giving five tips to the Huffington Post designed to help you enjoy a guilt-free meal (with leftovers)! Harley puts in perspective that your Thanksgiving dinner is merely one of about 1,100 meals you'll have this year, and that it is not going to throw your whole nutrition plan off the rails if you have a second helping of stuffing. He also discusses fitness  and nutrition myths associated with the holiday.

Gym Aficionados Create Ideal Workout Spaces To Sweat

Adam Colberg is a former U.S. Marine, and one of the most sought after fitness and boxing coaches in the country. His clients include professional athletes and television personalities — many who call Greenwich home. Part of his service includes helping clients design the perfect home-based gym.

Posted on Nov 10, 2015 11:42:10 AM

For years now, there have been heavy and broad debates surrounding treadmill use from both the consumer side and the business side such as:

  • Should I use a treadmill at all?
  • Which brand of treadmill is the best one to use and/or purchase?
  • How long should I use a treadmill?

There is always the potential for issues whenever one is training for aesthetics - your genetics will always play a role.
