At TS, we like to teach chin-ups before moving to the more complex pull-up. We recognize that chin ups are difficult for many of our clients so we’ve mapped out a series of progressions that will train you to be able to complete a set of chin ups in no time (ok, some time).
Obstacle courses have become increasingly popular over the past few years as they are great way to challenge yourself and work together with a group of friends for a common goal. In October, members of the TS community will be running the Tri State New Jersey Spartan Sprint. Sprints are usually about 3-4 miles with least 15 different obstacles. Since the course map is not released beforehand, there is little way of knowing what you could expect on race day so you will have to be prepared to face anything!
So how do you train for such a race? Typically obstacles will test your upper body and grip strength, crawling ability, hill running capacity, overall endurance, and teamwork skills.
Fall is the perfect time to focus on better eating, proper nutrition, and weight loss. You have ample time to start creating healthy habits that will before Thanksgiving and the holidays tempt you to wait until the New Year. Like with any goal, whether financial, personal, professional, or in the gym, you need to create reasonable expectations to give yourself the opportunity to succeed. Read on to learn more about how to create achievable weight loss goals.
As we launch our Balanced Habit Nutrition Fall Kickstart Challenge, we want to help you develop the ideal workout week to support your nutrition goals. Even though nutrition typical makes up at about 70% of weight loss, we want the food that you consume to be used as fuel for your workouts, not just stored in your body.
We know that our clients love to indulge in a little bit of ice cream and a lot of bit of rosé but come Fall, it's time to think about burning off the summer fun. TS has teamed up with Balanced Habits, a leading nutrition coaching program, to launch a Fall Nutrition Challenge.
Our TS team of nutrition coaches, Rachel and Hannah, will be executing the program.
We sat down with Hannah to learn a little more about the program.
After crushing a HIIT class or a GPT session, the last thing you may want to do is take a few more minutes to stretch or foam roll but it is crucial to not ignore post-workout mobility as a key aspect of your recovery. At TS Fitness, our goal is to build you up--not break you! We want to make sure your recovering properly from a great session.
One of the most commonly overlooked aspects of your fitness is the amount of sleep that you get each night. As busy New Yorkers, it is difficult to cram in work, exercise, and a social life while also getting to bed at a reasonable hour but studies show that a lack of sleep can reduce your fitness gains substantially.

At TS Fitness, our motto is Together Stronger and we love to offer our expertise to the greater fitness community. Since June is Men's Health Month, we are sharing two great articles that recently featured Noam.

At TS Fitness, we’re celebrating the hard work and dedication of our TS Community mothers. Over the years, we’ve had numerous pre-and post-natal clients train with us. Studies show that exercise may prevent gestational diabetes (diabetes that develops during pregnancy), build the stamina needed for labor and delivery, and relieve stress. Both expecting and new mothers have a wide variety of challenges and things to consider when continuing their exercise routine.
