Still trying to start your new year’s resolution: Terry Crews got you covered:

“TREAT THE GYM LIKE A SPA.”
Yes. It has to feel good. I tell people this a lot – go to the gym, and just sit there, and read a magazine, and then go home. And do this every day.
Go to the gym, don’t even work out. Just GO. Because the habit of going to the gym is more important than the work out. Because it doesn’t matter what you do. You can have fun – but as long as you’re having fun, you continue to do it.
But what happens is you get a trainer, your whole body is sore, you can’t feel your legs, and you’re not coming back the next day – you might not come back for a year!
I worked my way up to 2 hours a day. I ENJOY my workouts. They are my peace, my joy – I get my whole head together! I value that time more than my shower! And it really gets me together. But it’s a habit.
There are times when – I’m not even kidding – there are times when I”m in the middle of a work out, and actually woke up because i am so engrained with going to the gym and being there – it’s that much of a habit to me. The first thing I do in the morning is work out – I lay out my workout clothes the night before, and just hop in ’em.
So lay out your clothes, and go to the gym, and relax.
HaAHAHAH!
But sooner or later, you WILL work out.”

Product review: EBOOST Energy Power (all varieties)

EBOOST sent along a sample of each flavor of their Energy Powders (Pink Lemonade, Acai Pomegranate, and Orange) for the purpose of review.

It’s often difficult to find an energy boost, whether it’s for working out and/or at work, without crashing later in the day, especially if the general consumer is not familiar with some of the ingredients, especially if it has more artificial than natural ingredients. You wind up feeling jittery, lethargic and crappy.

What makes EBOOST very special is that its blend of vitamins, minerals, and super-nutrients will “give you a natural lift. It’s packed with ingredients like Vitamins C, D, B6, B12, as well as 5-HTP, Resveratrol, Green Tea, and Green Coffee.”  The energy powder samples not only increased the amount of delivery in our workouts; from faster cardio times and more reps in a given workout, but the efficiency of simply getting overall tasks done, giving EBOOST the highest rating it truly deserves. Our favorite flavor was the Pink Lemonade.

Gluten Free, Non-GMO, no artificial flavors, colors and sweeteners are some of the things EBOOST opted from their ingredients. More impressively is that the company “spent years working with doctors, nutritionists, and trainers to create the right blend of premium ingredients that not only delivers energy, but also helps with recovery, and enhances focus and mood.”

From glowing testimonials from celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Shakira and Kelly Ripa to even Jillian Michaels as EBOOST’s very own Chief Energy Officer, EBOOST will not only deliver natural energy to kick start your workouts, but also boost your workout, and your life.

product-reviews-images

 

This is perhaps one of my favorite part of The Concept of F.I.T.  I strongly believe that as consumers we need honest opinions, research, and ratings of products that are gonna help us achieve our goals or set us back. I hate spending money on shit crap that only set us back, both fitness goals and financially. Not to mention, there are great products out there from different walks of the health and fitness field that deserve the recognition it deserve. I am not really here to give just positive feedback on a product that is NOT going to BENEFIT you. I want to help you guys get the help you need in order to make smart buying choices and we take care the rest.

Here is what you will expect from The Concept of F.I.T. Reviews

  • Why”The Concept of F.I.T. will give you reviews that include not only whether the we give the thumbs up or down, but why. We might compare other similar products, just to be fair.
  • Fine Details– The reviews will focus on specific features of the product and the experiences with it. This might tie with the F.I.T. Media for video reviews.
  • Keep it straightforwardThe Concept of F.I.T. always try to keep all posts in an enjoyable length as possible, at least 100 words minimum, but 450 words max. Don’t you hate getting bored?

David Barton Gym’s 5th Annual Block Party Review

SO-201408-Page

I attended the David Barton’s 5th Annual Block Party (8/28) a few days ago and I must say that for someone who often visited the Equinox gyms, I think David Barton did a pretty awesome job in convincing me to jump membership otherwise. The purpose of this event in my own opinion was to welcome both members and non-members to get an intimate experience with David Barton (in case you didn’t know, David Barton is known for its stylish and innovative atmosphere that helps your “forget the outside world” and get your pumped up before you ever step onto the treadmill or barbell.) The event (Astor Place in New York City) has partnered up with pop-up shops that offered giveaways, special discounts & tons of great takeaways for you to get ready for the next day or workout (or both). Some of the sponsors include ZICO Coconut Water, FIU by Uptown, EBOOST, Back Label and much more.

I had the upmost pleasure of meeting Kevin Kavanaugh, the President of David Barton Gym, who also not only made the event smoothly run with his staff, but also gave me good takeaways fitness/health tips including make your own food with wholesome ingredients and not worry so much on the calories counting on food that would pack the weight and find a workout that you enjoy the most in order for you to stick with it in the long run. I also had a great experience in my first tour around the gym and I must say I’m pretty sold not just because I’m writing quite a positive review for David Barton (The Concept of F.I.T. keeps it real for you, the amazing audience to get your F.I.T. on) but some of the things I believe its Concept of F.I.T. worthy. This David Barton gym comes equipped with a live DJ, colorful, ‘nightlife” themed workout cycling and free weight-rooms and the energy of great trainers that would motivate you to push that last rep instead of doing the workout yourself and not get much out of your time.

 Leave your 9 to 5 stressful job, the anxiety that you don’t look great enough, and your longing to belong somewhere with like-minded individuals and come to David Barton in Astor Place. For the rebels, the nerds, the subcultures, and the unique individuals, this gym gets you going and feels surreally at home. I hope to do more events with David Barton for more to come. Cons, nothing I can’t think of yet, so I might just have to join and figure that one for myself.

Overall experience 5/5
