Om My God

Promises, promises. I’ll only eat healthy food (wine’s healthy, right?). I’ll exercise, really I will. And I’ll relax more, center myself and look within. Okay, but with so many pressing activities fighting for attention, who has the time?

Koa Yoga will help you win two battles at once, with thoughtfully choreographed practices to develop inner awareness that still deliver a challenging, strengthening workout. Owned by Hatha yoga instructor Leah Distad,... Read more »

House Training

www.leichic.com

Working out at home? Or just feebly doing a few leg lifts during Lost reruns? At this time of year, you figure, you’re getting the same workout you would waiting in line for machines at the gym.

But when you’re not moving much, neither is the scale.

Personal trainer Dawn Quiocho, of Buff Mama Fitness Training, is a firm believer that you don’t ever really need to go to the gym. You can lose weight, get stronger and achieve better definition using just your own body weight for resistance training. And you can do that anywhere.

Pole Position

www.leichic.com Your current  workout: monotony on the cardio machines or jogging trail (usually involving wheezing and panting). Stringy sweaty hair. Damp stinky clothes.

Standing Room Only

www.leichic.com

Learning to swim started with being dunked by your cousins until you swam for your life. Getting the hang of driving meant circling the school parking lot a hundred times until your dad finally let you on the road. And then there were surf lessons – you’ve still never mastered the pop-up. Does riding waves lying down count?

There’s another way to get vertical on your board.

Kama ‘aina-owned Wet Feet will ease you into the newly-popular sport of stand-up paddle surfing. Rent a board at their laid back Aina Haina store, then talk story with the owners to get some... Read more »
