It’s Summer in NYC and this one is the mildest of the last few years… We are in mid July and the thermometers haven’t reached 100 degrees yet. For me there isn’t a better combination than meeting with friends and doing a New York City outdoor workout! Last week our best friends Ricardo Baldin and his girlfriend Jeannete Linderberg, joined my love Fabio Nunes and I for a nice week of training and eating good food. They both are based and working as models in L.A. so I get to see them only once in a while another reason to really enjoy our time together.
There are a LOT of ways to do a New York City outdoor workout: biking, playing ball, skating, running. And there are a lot of places to do it so too!
After a great smoothie in the morning, we all went for a cardio training that takes only 15 minutes of your time! The goal is to keep your heart rate a bit at a certain level that helps you sweat and burn fat. After all is a great way to raise your energy levels for the rest of the day.
We also had a little fun doing Yoga poses ( Asanas ) and helping each other to improve our technique. We went to the Elevated Acre in the Financial District to do this workout.
I am proud to say that our post New York City outdoor workout meal was amazing! : Chicken legs, sweet potatoes, spinach egg whites omelet with avocado topping and arugula salad. Every single ingredient was organic and chicken was free range grade 2. All made with love and care by Fabio’s talented chef hands. He is a Model Chef after all, who has cooked many delicious dinners for foodlovers around New York City :)
The other day, we rode city bikes and took the East River cycling route with destination: Central Park. The ride was just so enjoyable, the temperature during the day was perfect and it really got into my senses the whole experience exercising, and enjoying the view, good weather and company. We even bumped into few Brasilian friends that were doing exactly same thing as we were: two girls on their skates while the third one was running alongside them. The bike ride was about 7 miles , Uptown to Central Park, and back home with a few stops to enjoy our favorites places in the city. Like the Italian meca Eataly on 5th av and 23rd st – were we went to recharge our fuel with great food.
When at the park it was easy to have a good time!
Gather a few friends, get inspired by the good weather and push each other to reach your goals! Share your knowledge and experiences – all that, and relieving stress at the same time! Above all Summertime is here to raise our spirits in a positive vibe !! I strongly advice to stay active, moving your body every chance you get! That’s the way I’m gonna spend my next days, what about you guys ?? ;))
