Get Fit or Get Fined? Is this Even Legal? B.E.S.T. Plan Starts 10/26!

(sponsored)

What would your community be like if it had ‘fitness patrols’ roaming your neighborhood streets? McDonald’s would probably be an underground junk food dealer (4 chicken nuggets in a dime bag, please) and Starbucks would most likely sell wheat grass macchiatos and have stair masters in their lounges instead of free wi-fi.

Well Human@Ease actually did the unthinkable and the Fitness Protection Police patrolled the Greenpoint streets to promote a healthier lifestyle to the community! Continue reading

Good Morning Gloryville – Obviously Brooklyn has Breakfast Raves!

Dancing or yoga?

For most Greenpointers, early mornings will find us hitting the snooze button a few too many times. Others are out dancing. A recent trend has sprung up in North Brooklyn (and across New York City) – people hitting the dance floors before their morning cup of coffee.

A group named Morning Gloryville, whose motto is “rave your way into the day” really knows how to wake up by dancing hard to awesome music with great people in a fun setting. Continue reading

It’s Time To Get Healthy: Food For Life Cooking Class Begins Thursday (DEAL!)

(sponsored)

Did you know that reviews by the American Institute for Cancer Research show that as much as 40% of cancer risk may be related to diet?

The contemporary Brooklynite’s diet (I’m looking at you!) which consists of going out and enjoying overly indulgent bacon infused everything (even cocktails) can leave us all feeling sluggish, unwell and not ourselves. Sound familiar? Not to mention it may put us at risk for disease down the line.

For the price it costs to go out to a fancy (heavy) and expensive dinner once, why not take a course (which includes 4 informative & hands-on classes) and learn to cook for your health!

Earth and Wellness Café (397 Graham Ave) is offering a Food for Life Cooking Course, which includes 4 classes on the following Thursdays (3/20, 3/27, 4/3, 4/10)

 from 7–9pm and costs on $135.

Plus they are offering a DEAL! 10% OFF discount to Greenpointers readers!

(Sponsored)

Ok, let’s be real. We all ate ourselves to pieces last week and with the holidays just around the corner, we’re not stopping. I like to binge eat as much as the next guy, but it probably wouldn’t hurt to remain physically active while doing so. It’s easier said than done, but our friend Dy from Human at Ease (ease is their middle last name) has a program that guides people through the intense process of getting fit, and as a result, it’s a lot less intimidating.

Be A Fitness Test Subject at Human@Ease! Sunday (8/18)

(Sponsored) Greenpoint Fitness & Wellness Center, Human@Ease (31 Nassau Ave) seeks two test subjects for a holistic weight loss case study.

Human@Ease is looking for two ideal candidates who are highly motivated to participate in a 12-wk case study.

We are looking for one male and one female between the ages of 24-55 who have struggled with long time weight issues (losing or gaining), and are currently experiencing issues with managing and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Each participant must be willing to complete the 12 week program in its entirety with full compliance. Participants’ progress will be photographed, documented and displayed for marketing and informational purposes.

This is a new program that will be launching end of summer called the B.E.S.T You! Plan (Balance. Energy. Strength. Tranquility). It’s an all inclusive holistic fitness, detox, & weight-loss (or gain) program that includes personal training, life & nutritional coaching, body assessments, classes, infrared sauna sessions, data tracking & more.

This program is set up and designed to deal with past conditioning and emotional obstacles related to food; proper diet and exercise education; and strengthening and improving not only the muscular and cardiovascular systems– but all systems of the body. The BEST You! Plan is guaranteed to deliver life long results.

This program is perfect for anyone who has ever struggled with weight issues; lack of strength, energy & motivation; confusion surrounding diet and exercise; health & musculoskeletal issues;  or anyone who just finds it difficult to staying committed to a program.

Each participant will receive 12 consecutive weeks of personal training, life & nutritional coaching, detoxification sessions, & classes. Requirements must be met to be selected for the case study.

We will be holding interviews for interested individuals on Sunday August 18th at 5:30pm in the Ohm Room at Human@Ease Fitness & Wellness Center 31 Nassau Ave (btwn Guernsey & Dobbin).
