Month: January 2014

Whether you have fallen behind on initiating your new years fitness goals or your life-long fitness goals, it’s never too late to get started.  An article published in the New York Times highlights key characteristics possessed by those who age well, and specifically examines recent studies that investigate the positive impacts of fitness on those who begin exercising later in life.  “Those results reaffirm both other science and common sense. A noteworthy 2009 study of more than 2,000 middle-aged men, for instance, found that those who started to exercise after the age of 50 were far less likely to die during the next 35 years than those who were and remained sedentary.”

The Health Hazards of Sitting


health hazards sittingThe Washington Post produced a neat and informative article on the health risks associated with sitting too much.  Unfortunately, due to long work and commute hours, most of us spend much too much time sitting in front of our computers or behind the wheel.  Take a look at the article and don’t forget to click the link that suggests easy exercises that you can do at work to efficiently inject some movement into your day and combat the health risks associated with our sedentary society.

Happy & Healthy 2014!


At Bodytonic we feel we are off to a great start recovering from holiday overindulgence and beginning 2014 with a commitment to self-care.  Self-care can manifest in many different ways; for BTP owner, Nadia Rodriguez, her self-care manifests by attentively balancing work, school, family/friend social time, while eating healthy lunches like smoothies or salads, and of course combining regular strength and cardiovascular training.  Nadia of course fulfills her strength training via Pilates at the studio, but some of you may be interested to know that she has also become quiet fond of zumba and kickboxing which she utilizes to fulfill her cardiovascular training.  Nadia’s standards are quiet high with regard to fitness instruction and given this, we’d like to share her picks for the best zumba and kickboxing instructors in the city!  These women teach challenging and intelligently designed classes and if you are looking to integrate more cardiovascular training we highly recommend them!
