A Recycled Bike with a Buzz

 

 

Swedish brand Vélosophy makes beautiful bicycles – classically designed with a modern appeal for the urban commuter. But there is more to these bikes than meets the eye. With a One for One promise, for every Vélosophy sold, another bicycle is donated to a schoolgirl in a developing country. At the core of the Vélosophy philosophy is a commitment to making a lasting and positive impact through cycling.

That also means using recycled aluminum to produce high-quality bicycles that balance sustainability and design – and you’ll get a buzz when you find out the source of that aluminum in their latest model. In partnership with Nespresso, the RE:CYCLE Edition is manufactured from 300 recycled aluminum coffee capsules! Read More

Best of The Box

Walking around New York City these days it’s not unusal to see a pair of boxing gloves draped over the shoulder of a fashionably dressed woman. Check out Instagram and you’ll see many a fashion model punching it out with her trainer in sweaty style. From the spa-like Shadowbox, to the speakeasy grungy Overthrow, to long established boxing gyms like Gleasons in Brooklyn — boxing is the hottest workout in town.

Fighters are known for their fitness and ripped physiques. Not only does boxing tone muscles and build full body strength, but it’s a major cardio workout, as anyone who has jump roped or hit the heavy bag for 3 minutes straight can attest. Just one boxing class can burn up to a thousand calories. It’s a sport that requires not just physical but mental discipline as well. Putting together a series of jab-hook-cross-upper cut combinations while bobbing and weaving requires intense focus and concentration, in addition to muscular and cardiovascular strength.

W.O.W! Surfing With Cynthia Rowley

 

PHOTOGRAPHS BY ANNE MENKE

Fashion designer Cynthia Rowley loves to surf. She is admittedly obsessed, as most hard core surfers are. It’s a shared family passion with husband Bill, and their two daughters Kit, 20, and Gigi, 14 — spending summer and fall weekends surfing in Montauk, and vacations in such far-flung surf locales as Costa Rica, Mexico, Hong Kong, and Senegal.

Cynthia’s style on the waves is cool and graceful, with an easy flow befitting the fashion design for which she is known. She started surfing about 20 years ago, trading a big house in East Hampton for a little shack on the beach in Montauk. A friend and local surfer told her she couldn’t live in that house if she didn’t surf. He paddled her out the next day and she popped right up on the first wave. She was hooked.

I joined Cynthia and daughter Kit for a surf session last weekend in Montauk for our latest installment of W.O.W! Working Out With, having as much fun on the mushy waves of a rainy Saturday, as the perfect ones of a sunny Sunday. Kit is following in her mother’s – and father’s – footsteps with her own fashion line. The three of us chatted about their shared love of surfing and fashion — and what’s coming down the pipeline for both… Read More

 

The 10 Buzziest Superfoods

 

 

Apple cider vinegar, turmeric, activated charcoal, kombucha, and more… you hear people buzzing about these hot wellness favorites all the time! Walk into a smoothie bar and you see matcha on the menu, pick up a magazine and some celebrity is swearing by the miracle benefits of celery juice. We asked Sarah Wragge, our contributing nutrition editor to give us the real deal on 10 of the trendiest foods — and the ones we should be eating now!

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar started getting really popular a few years ago, with everybody talking about its health and weight loss benefits. Apple cider vinegar helps control blood sugar levels that lead to cravings, and is said to work as an appetite suppressant when consumed with meals. It contains organic acids and enzymes that help speed up metabolism and can increase the rate at which body fat is burned. It also works to detoxify the body, helping our digestive systems become more efficient.

SAYS SARAH: Like all fermented foods, apple cider vinegar it is a great probiotic remedy — something everyone should be taking for a healthy gut. Know that bloated feeling? Apple cider vinegar helps increase the good bacteria living inside our digestive tract, and fight the bad bacteria which are often the cause. Personally, I’d rather you take a great probiotic – look for one with 10 billion cultures or higher, and at least 5 different bacteria strains. I like Renew Life. For some people, raw vinegar on an empty stomach (when you should be consuming it) doesn’t feel great, especially first thing in the morning.  Read More

 

CBD Sport

 

 

At this point it’s hard to imagine you haven’t heard of CBD – short for cannabidoil – projected to become a 23-billion-dollar business by 2025. This non-psychotropic extract of the cannibis plant produces a sense of calm and relaxation (for many), but without the high, and has become a cure-all consumed in oil and edible forms. Most relevant for athletes, are the CBD sport creams for both injury prevention and muscle recovery.

Now there is a line of CBD creams formulated specifically for before and after your workout – Muscle MX Activate and Muscle MX Recovery – both of which come in a handy stick form, so no greasy hands. With 250mg of CBD in each application, both also have Peppermint Oil, Arnica extract, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree Oil and lots more all natural and organic, therapeutic ingredients.

Activate, applied before your workout, provides pain relief and inflammation reduction, while stimulating blood flow and increasing circulation. Recovery is designed to help prevent and treat muscle soreness and fatigue, inflammation, and minor aches and pains. Both creams go on smooth, are fast-absorbing, and have a refreshing scent.

CBD products tend to work differently for each individual. We’ve found that ones friends swear by, may not have much of an effect on others. For this athlete however, I’ve been slathering it on before and after workouts all summer, and am passing my fave CBD sport cream – or creams – on to you.

 

Breathe In, Cash Out

 

BREATHE IN, CASH OUT AUTHOR MADELEINE HENRY

 
Breathe In, Cash Out is the debut novel by 27-year-old Madeleine Henry that offers an inside and satirical look at both the finance and yoga industry. The book tells the first-person story of a young Wall Street banking analyst, Allegra Cobb, who plans to quit her job as soon she gets her year-end bonus to pursue her real dream of becoming a full-time yoga guru.

What may seem like pursuits at the opposite end of the spectrum – yoga and banking – start to narrow when Allegra meets famed Instagram yogi, Skylar Smith, whose manipulative actions jeopardize whether Allegra will even get that bonus. Both industries get skewered, coming off equally self-absorbed and self-serving.

Ivy league grad and analyst at a top-tier bank – author Madeleine Henry’s career path has not been so different from that of her leading character. She herself went to Yale, and after to Goldman Sachs. Unlike Allegra however, her passion for yoga started after she left banking. As one can see Madeleine is a serious yogi, and with her own impressive Instagram following (@madeleinehenryyoga).  Read More
