    Metabolic Syndrome
    By Sara Colman B.H. RDN, CDE
    What do excess body weight, high blood pressure, high glucose and cholesterol levels and low HDL (good) cholesterol levels have in common? Individually each is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. However, combined these conditions mean increased risk of more serious health problems. Why? The condition, called metabolic syndrome, increases the chance a person will develop diabetes, heart disease or stroke. Metabolic syndrome is also known as syndrome X and insulin resistance syndrome.

    Living your best life...

    Happy Monday Everybody! I wanted to touch upon a subject close to my heart for a second. It occurred to me last night as I was scrolling through Instagram... what does it mean to live your best life? I sometimes look at other people's accounts and think to myself, "self, you will never have a life that flawless or will never be able to create that perfect of a photo for your own page..." I have to remind myself fairly regularly that it's not perfection that I'm going for but happiness. And happiness to me means an organized and peaceful mind, healthy body so I feel good in my skin and a continued passion for what I do. As long as I have those things, I'm living MY best life. "Best life" ....

    Motivation - where are you?

    So... I'm always searching for things on the web that will enrich me as a person. One of our core values at The Works NYC is "commitment to personal development" so it's just in me. One thing that isn't in me 100% of the time is motivation. I have also been asked this question countless times by members of the Studio and Clients, how do you stay motivated? Now that it's getting colder outside, I feel like it's more relevant now than ever. When it's cold, it's way more attractive to stay under the warm covers than to trek out to the gym for a workout. I wanted to be able to share with our people here in the Studio a wide range of tips to stay motivated... and came across this gem from Marla ....

  • Personal Training in Manhattan - The Works NYC - The Works NYC's Best Buns Recipe

    The Works NYC's Best Buns Recipe

    Happy week after a long weekend! These Tuesdays are worse than Mondays sometimes. It’s so difficult to refocus after going into down-regulation over an extended weekend away from the grind. To cheer you up I have put together my favorite butt recipe for construction… because of buns of steel. Why else? These should be done with WEIGHT as that is the only way to create the shape of a muscle. High reps with low weight day in and day out don’t cut it. What you’re actually teaching your muscles to do with that training scheme is to have endurance, which is great, but in order to teach them how to rebuild and shape, you must must must create an overload in the muscle. ....

  • Personal Training in Manhattan - The Works NYC - 3 Day Meal Plan. Boring Food Be Gone!

    3 Day Meal Plan. Boring Food Be Gone!

    Ok… I’m going to yell right now… EATING HEALTHFULLY and BEING ON A MEAL PLAN DOESN’T HAVE TO BE BORING! I come from a background of competing in fitness competitions so completely understand what it’s like to feel relegated to nothing but chicken, broccoli and brown rice. Not only is that not a sustainable way to eat, but it will drive you CRAZY. The next thing you know, you’re wolfing down a full sleeve of oreos in a complete blur and by the time you realize the whole sleeve is gone, you’re crying in a pool of crumbs sitting on the floor in the corner of your dark kitchen. Not the best feeling or way to live. SO… our Nutrition ....

    Workout Intensity and Why It's Important...

    Are you working out hard enough? You have a program that either you found on the internet, or a friend from the gym gave you, or maybe it’s even an old program given to you by a former trainer. You’re following it to a “T” but still, nothing is changing. How can that be? You’re even eating well… SUPER FRUSTRATING. Here is why this could be happening… your intensity isn’t there. WORKOUT INTENSITY:
    Workout intensity refers to how much energy is expended when exercising. Perceived intensity varies with each person. It has been found that intensity has an effect on what fuel the body uses and what kind of adaptations the body makes after ....
