Need to Know: DownUnder’s Paddle Fit Class, Westport & Rowayton

If you are a Fit CT reader, chances are you live in Fairfield County and you’d agree with me that, in most seasons, we live in one of the most beautiful areas.  The long awaited unofficial start to summer is here and with that we have the desire to spend as much time outside and near or on the water as we possibly can.  Let me tell you, there is no better way to multi-task being close to nature and working out than taking DownUnder’s Paddle Fit class.

‘Revelution’ Fitness

Big, epic, exciting things are happening in boutique fitness in Fairfield County.  This time it isn’t a new gym on the scene but rather a merger of two existing, highly reputable gyms:  Julie Migliaccio’s Evolution Fitness is partnering with Jay Ross’s Cross Fit Revel to become the appropriately named, ‘Revelution‘.

A Running Obsession…

I am very often asked what my favorite workout is.  I have many but there is one that has held the top rank for the last 18 years.  Running.  I didn’t grow up running – to be honest in high school I couldn’t run 400m without having an ambulance arrive at the scene, but when I moved to NYC in 1997 I caught the running bug.  I joined NYRR while living on the UES and found that with drive and determination I could do it.   I never knew that what started out as a 5k in Central Park in 1998 would define the next 20+ years (and hopefully more!) of my life.
