The COREFIRE Team is consistently blown away by our #fuegofamily. Not only does every woman (and man) come in and work your butts off (especially at 5:30am!), but you all lead such fascinating lives that inspire us every day. We have decided to spotlight YOU on a regular basis. There are so many stories to tell. Today's post is a spotlight on Melissa Sowa-Letgers. Not only does she kick some A$$ at our Montclair location, but she has a full time job AND owns her own store, Sweat & Strut. Get prepared to be inspired:
Every year around this time there is a scramble to find the best books for beach reading. There is nothing worse than plopping down your chair, putting on your lotion, opening up your book and HATING it. Have no fear! We have done the dirty work and come up with some great books that you won’t be able to put down.
Cheers to the unofficial to start to summer! With June 21st right around the corner, we have put together a round up of MUST visits while the kids are off from school and you are in relaxation mode!
In this multi-part series, we'll break down how to get better at one of the most accessible - and enjoyable! - ways to get moving: running! In Part 1, we focus on preparing the body for running with proper warm-ups and cool downs.
Spring has finally sprung & we are excited to show you what some of the local shops around Montclair and Ridgewood have in store for the warmer months.
If you’re a regular to Corefire, it’s likely that you already know the importance of fueling your body properly not only to for your intense workouts, but everyday life. And while you probably already know an apple is a better choice than apple pie, the influx of conflicting nutrition and health information we are bombarded by can leave even the most health-conscious consumer confused. Add in the sneaky marketing strategies many companies employ, it’s a wonder we can ever decide what to eat! At Corefire, we’re all about working hard AND playing hard, and enjoying life (delicious food most certainly included). But, if you’re trying to up your fitness performance, it is essential to find the right foods that work for you and your goals. Below are a few examples of popular convenience snacks that seem totally healthy, but in fact aren’t. (Of course, we’ll leave you with some better-for-you alternatives!)
The GREEN Crush at Sweetberry Bowls:
We all the know that “good sore” feeling that comes after a great workout: a slight twinge in your abs when you cough, your legs feel fatigued as you climb up a flight of stairs, or maybe your backside reminds you of all your hard work when you try to sit down.
