There is a new Orange Theory Fitness studio opening in Midtown Manhattan and I’m excited to be a apart of the opening and helping the students start off on the right foot.
This has possibly been one of the best experiences of my life. I love food shopping for healthy food, and helping to spread the wealth of health to those looking to engage in a healthier life style. And thanks to Orange Theory Midtown in NYC, they helped me facilitate these two passions of mine. I was able to walk around the Whole Foods at Bryant park in NYC and give the members helpful tips about how to stay healthy and get the most out of their orange theory experience because a workout is only half the battle.
Proper nutrition is imperative to a health and fitness regimen. I’m a big promoter of volumetric eating. I’m all about low calorie density foods that equal out to a nice full plate.
I started out by walking the members around the vegetable section of the store. Whole Foods from the earth are always best, especially because of the nutrient content in a lot of these foods. From broccoli, to peppers, to potatoes (yes potatoes), ginger, turmeric, green beans, mushrooms. The possibilities are endless and the more outside of the box you think. The more inventive you can get with healthy foods. You want to enhance the natural flavors of this healthy foods so that you don’t roll your eyes while eating.
The real main point of this evening, was to open people’s eyes to the fact healthy isn’t boring. Healthy can be just as satisfying as your unhealthy foods.
This class was so much fun for me and I hope to be able to do another in the near future.
