Join us on June 9th, Green Gym Day, the first worldwide day of play for everyone. Green Gym Day is the day you’ve been waiting for–an excuse to get outdoors and play. Once you experience how good it feels to be active outdoors, you might make everyday Green Gym Day. My partners and I are using social media to promote the day and get more people outdoors, for the sheer pleasure of it. We’re inviting everyone to share their activities on the day with everyone else who takes part, via photos and video clips, which will be used to create a video montage of the day.

Let’s face it, it’s pretty confusing out there… weight loss, fat loss, good carbs, bad carbs? Whom can you trust? Nutritionist Paula Owens sets things straight for you in her latest book, “Fat Loss Revolution.” Paula has graciously agreed to answer some key questions to give us a taste of what her book has in store. It’s the perfect complement to “Nancercize: 101 Things to Do on a Park Bench,” too!
What’s a Nancercize class like? A month or two ago, two charming young ladies from the Columbia University School of Journalism came knocking on our “door.” The video that grew out of that search is now viewable on the Uptowner website. In 1 minute and 40 seconds they pretty well captured the essence of Nancercize. Have a look and see for yourself.
