The Essentials of ANY Running Program (and how to incorporate Fit Radio!)

By Bianca M,

Feeling inspired watching the Boston Marathon? Thinking about lacing up the shoes and training for one yourself? Or maybe you want to start smaller, perhaps beginning with a 5K and working your way up. Whatever the decision, you’re ready to get moving! But where do you even start? We get questions all the time as to how to incorporate Fit Radio workouts into training for a race. First and foremost, know that there are a million ways to get from point A to point B when it comes to training. That’s why it’s usually pretty overwhelming for a newbie to google “Marathon Training Plan” – only 3,600,000 results! Easy. But even if you’re a veteran and looking to drop some time on your next race, there ARE common themes amongst these programs that lend themselves well to integrating Fit Radio into the equation along the way!

Meet Cardio Coach Keisy – Our Certified Active Isolated Stretch Practitioner

By Maire,

Hey, Fit Radio Fam! It’s your coach Keisy Myumi, and for those of you who have not tuned into any of the Fit Radio workouts, my name is Keisy, and I am a certified master trainer and unconventional strength specialist. I have been an Active Isolated Stretch Practitioner for 3 years and I make it my business to be an advocate for consistent stretching. I have a background in ballroom, latin, and swing dancing, so flexibility for me is a gift and a curse. It’s great when it comes to my range of motion, but in order to really get a good stretch, it can sometimes be difficult alone.

Meet SISSFiT Cardio Coaches!

By Maire,

Hey Fit Radio Fam!  We’re sisters, Lauren and Kelly of SISSFiT.  We grew up in Orange County, California and have played sports our entire lives.  We ran Division 1 Track and Field together at UC Irvine and upon graduating realized that we were not ready to give up our love for fitness!  Though we chose different career paths, we were constantly exchanging workouts with one another and when possible, meeting up for a little healthy competition and accountability!  We became the “go-to’s” in our friend circles for workouts and training and figured it was time to get certified and begin building something we were truly passionate about!

31 Lower-Calorie Halloween Candies

By Maire,

Most days of year, we’re all about the quinoa and kale. But then there are those special times—like Halloween—when it’s fine to enjoy a sugary treat (or two). That’s because when you eat right most days, an occasional splurge is no biggie.That’s not to say you should scarf down handfuls of the kiddies’ stash or the office leftovers. Just keep in mind your calorie intake, and limit portions.

hot yoga tips

The sweat drips down your back. Not knowing this was even possible, you look down and see beads of perspiration forming on your thighs. You feel slightly dizzy, but push through, taking a huge swig of water before heading into tree pose. Sounds like a typical hot yoga class, yes? Women everywhere swear by the warm practice, where rooms are heated to between 80 and 105 degrees. And while you’ve surely heard a girlfriend say how much she loves the toasty Vinyasa because she feels like she “sweats out all the bad” at her go-to studio, the question remains: Is it really safe? Is there such a thing as yoga that’s too hot?

“I dare them to find the iPod on me,” Richie Sais told the New York Times in 2007 when he was preparing to run the Marine Corps Marathon. USA Track & Field, the national governing body for distance racing, had just decided to ban athletes from using portable music players in order “to ensure safety and to prevent runners from having a competitive edge.” Rais resolved to hide his iPod shuffle under his shirt. Many fellow runners protested the new rule, which remains in effect today in an amended form: It now applies only to people vying for awards and money.
