Fit in Five Episode 1

Short, sweet & to the point. Concise. No frills. 

Fit in Five will offer a series of short, five-move circuits that can be done in your home with minimal equipment. 

Meet your trainer: 

Jorge Luna is ISSA and Schwinn Indoor Cycling Certified. He's been a fitness junkie for over 20 years and currently trains for befitnyc, NYC Fitness and Iowa Sports Club

Jorge and I worked out together last night at the beautiful befitnyc studio. Enjoy the fruits of our labor, complete with poor quality camera footage, awkward editing and me not even attempting to do my hair- because you know I keep it real. 

1. Side Plank w Lateral Raises- 15 per side
2. Mountain Climbers- 40 single count
3. Plank Single Arm Row- 10 per side
4. Step Back Lunge with Leg Raise- 15 per side
5. Burpees- 15

If you try the workout, let me know how you like it in the comments! Too hard? Too easy? We want to hear from you. 

Happy Sweating.

Hustle & Grind, Weekend Edition

Weekends are working days around here, but a slightly later start time means coffee meditation in the (hanging) garden.

Today, I have a rehearsal and a film shoot with the Void Theater Company, a yoga class (if I hurry) and then a performance of The Harper's Play at Jack NY. Cue- big breakfast!

Power plate, activate- turkey bacon, whole wheat tortilla, egg and greens.

It just began snowing outside my window, which means I'll bundle up like I'm hitting the Iditarod and trundle to the subway, wondering how on earth anyone can manage to look even remotely stylish in this weather? I cease caring at approximately 30 degrees.

I'm excited to feature a workout tomorrow with a very special guest contributor. Keep your eyes peeled. 

Do you have a working weekend? What's your favorite Saturday AM ritual? And do you try to look fly in the cold, or does comfort reign?

A few quick updates!

The wild world of Keelie is as exciting and busy as ever. My life is currently jam-packed, but with some very terrific things!

I work with Jack's Stir Brew- the city's BEST coffee company- doing social media and general coffee-shop fun. 

Our vegan, organic, Kosher pastry kitchen, run by chef Camillo Sabella, is one of the best in the city and it's been a real treat photographing Camillo's creations. 

I've begun working for Mealku- a NYC-based online community that delivers meals personally prepared by our network of home cooks. Think Seamless or Grubhub, but with a lot more love. I'm doing Mealku's food photography- pretty close to a dream job for me. Additionally, I'll be taking over some of their social media outlets. 

Some of my favorite images so far. ANNND I get to taste it all. Life is good. 

I was recently able to spend a day volunteering with some Mealku pals at The Bowery Mission. We were able to prepare and serve lunch for 300 hungry New Yorkers. 

Nothing like helping others to remind yourself how terrific your life is, regardless of what the world throws at you.

And in non-food-related items, I'm in a really terrific show! The Downtown Loop at 3LD has gotten a lot of critical love. Check us out in the NY Times! We perform Tues-Sat at 8p and have a Sat matinee at 3p. Running until November 16th! Come check us out!

So I'm busy. Super busy. But incredibly aware of how tremendously lucky I am. Life is good, indeed.
