I absolutely hate working out. So, while I was pumped that Alessa Caridi would be visiting the #HipNJ studio, I was also a little nervous. To my surprise, she made it so much fun. Alessa Caridi is the founder and owner of JōbuFit, a company that brings fitness to the workplace in a practical way. She showed me workouts that can be done any time of the day. JōbuFit’s exercises are […]

Michael Schwartz, founder of Hometown Heroes, visited the #HipNJ studio to talk about his Garden State charity. Michael and I go way back to days before #HipNJ.

Nykki Ross of Body By Nykki joined me in the #HipNJ studio to discuss all things fitness and nutrition. Nykki’s father, Master Phil Ross, is not only the area’s most decorated and accomplished martial artist and fitness instructor, but also a great friend to #HipNJ.
