Miro will get you in shape for summer

personal trainer, fitness

Ask for my friend Miro at Milton Hill Sport & Spa

I wanted to give a shout out to my friend Miro who is a personal trainer at the Milton Hill Sport & Spa located in the Milton – Dorchester Lower Mills area. The mild winter has brought us spring (New England’s most fleeting season) earlier than usual, and the summer months will be here before we realize it. Miro is just the guy to help you get into shape before bathing suit season arrives.

For more information give Milton Hill Sport & Spa a call or stop by and ask for Miro. He’s a great guy and can help you achieve your personal fitness goals.

Walking with sandwiches: Ben’s New Year’s resolution

Many people make New Year’s resolutions each year and it is usually right about now that a lot of us give up on them. I stumbled upon this really inspiring YouTube video of someone who has an interesting story that I wanted to share.

All I Want for Christmas by Steve Grand

Not only is Steve easy on the eyes, but he also has a killer voice. Enjoy the newly released video and if you like it share it on your social media channels. Steve does this independently so he relies on the support of his fans to help him out.

If you like the song you can download it here: stevegrand.bandcamp.com.

Merry Christmas

New South End gym: Swet Studio

south end fitness, lgbt fitnessSwet Studio opened in the South End last month and what caught my attention was, while all are welcome, it caters to the LGBT community.  I’m not sure there is any place like it in Boston. One look at their classes and schedule and you will realize they have quite a range of unique fitness and dance classes, including same sex ballroom classes, indoor rowing and anti-gravity, aerial yoga just to name a few.Realm Health and Fitness Tips from Kyle, exerciseLater this month on Saturday, November 28th (the Saturday after Thanksgiving) Swet Studio is hosting their first ever Men’s class – Full Body Workout for just $25. Get an amazing full body workout with like-minded guys, followed by a post workout jazz brunch at The Beehive.  All net proceeds from registrations purchased will be donated to Mass Equality Education Fund.

Swet Studio has a first time offer; $20 for your first class. In addition there are some great coupons available on GroupOn; Swet Studio on GroupOn. A couple of classes at Swet could be the perfect holiday gift to give to yourself to offset the celebratory drinks and meals you know you’ll end up consuming.

Max Emerson in the buff on Hashtag Living

Hashtag Living, Max Emerson, Baker MachadoUnderwear model Max Emerson joined host Baker Machado in an episode of Hashtag Living, a show that talks to stars and how they use social media.  Watch the handsome model/actor, Max Emerson, demonstrate an ab work out in the buff. Never has an abs exercise seemed more tantalizing.
