Hi guys! What a week. In just two days I head to the Berkshires for our wedding. I’ve been doing some extra weight training leading up to the big day. Here’s what went down:

Monday: 30-minute training session
Tuesday: nothing
Wednesday: 30-minute training session + 2 mile easy run
Thursday: Barry’s Bootcamp abs day at Chelsea.
Friday: 30-minute training session
Saturday: Refine Method
Sunday: Barry’s Bootcamp Upper East Side (Full Body!)

Before Matt and I tie the knot, I thought it would be fun to introduce you to the soon-to-be Mr. Cuckoolemon. I prepared a short interview with Matt. Read on.

I took my first Barry’s Bootcamp class over three years ago.  Back then, there was no advance spot assignment, and class started with a mad dash toward the treadmills. Other than that, not much has changed. It’s still a brutally sweaty, efficient and diverse workout.

In the last six months or so, I’ve become a true Barry’s addict. Nary a week passes where I don’t go to at least two classes.  I’ve celebrated small Barry’s achievements (first covering 2 miles in a class and now covering at least 2.5 miles) and I have really grown to love stepping into their studios.

If you’re a Barry’s addict like me, the following 13 things may ring true. Let me know in the comments if you have any to add or to second.

AKT in Motion has been on my radar for a while. There’s a studio in NoMad not too far from my office, since it’s not on ClassPass I needed a little push to try it.

AKT was created by Anna Kaiser, a former Tracy Anderson trainer. After my less than stellar experience at Tracy Anderson’s East Hampton studio, I was a little hesitant to try something based on the same principles. But after reading a few good reviews my pal Katy and I decided to give it a shot. (We also went to Tracy Anderson together.)

Happy Friday, friends!  Did everyone have a nice Memorial Day Weekend?  What’d ya get up to?

A few things before we get started.  Feeling stressed? I enjoyed this post from The Blissful Mind on how to calm anxious thoughts. On a similar topic, my pal Ali Feller wrote an article for Well & Good that’s well worth a read: “The (very controllable) reason you might be more stressed than you were three years ago.”

Now, on to last week’s workouts:
