Mind Over Matter offers several outdoor Boot Camp style group workouts in New York City’s best outdoor gym – Central Park.

During our high-energy 60 minute Boot Camp classes, you’ll do a total body workout that consists of 5 minute warm-ups, 20 minutes of Cardio, Upper Body (Push ups, back and shoulder movements), Core Work (Crunches, rotation and stabilization movements), Lower Body (Squats, squat thrusts, lunges, jumps), Stretch (Cool down dynamic stretching).

Mind Over Matter Health & Fitness caters to the fitness level of each individual during class. Our instructors will take the time to check on each participant’s form, make necessary adjustments, and pinpoint any individual concerns and answer questions.



Stroller Boot Camp

Can’t find a babysitter so you can make a trip to the gym? Worried you won’t be able to fit in a complete workout between your toddler’s naps? With Mind Over Matter’s comprehensive Stroller Boot Camp, there’s no more stressing and no more excuses. You can build muscle, burn fat and firm up all while spending valuable time with your baby!

Stroller Boot Camp includes everything the 60 Minute Boot Camp class provides – a warm up, cardio, strength training, stretching and cool down. You’ll jog, race walk and participate in resistance exercises, such as squats, lunges and various abdominal movements that incorporate your child and their stroller.

Don’t let the cold weather keep you from achieving your fitness goals. Join us indoors once a week for a holiday-weight-burning workout. Contrary to popular practice, resolutions are actually meant to be achieved!

Five Commandments of Nutrition

Posted on May 10th, 2009 by mindovermatter

There is an inordinate amount of information out there with regards to nutrition. Here are five simple commandments that will help you burn fat and build muscle. All the while helping you look, and feel your best.

I. Eat 4-6 times a day
Active people who cut back on calories and eat infrequently are training their bodies to get by on less energy. As a result of this you tend to store unburned calories as fat. Instead, researchers advise to eat every three hours to accelerate metabolism, maintain steady energy, and ultimately burn fat more efficiently.

II. Combine carbs, protein and fat at every meal
It is a fact that our bodies work better when you balance all three. Many times, if you don’t have a little bit of carbs with your meal your appetite will not be suppressed. A healthy combination of all three is your best bet.

III. Control portion sizes
Portion size is just as important as what you are eating. Use common sense, more times than not while ordering at a restaurant you are getting twice of what you would normally need to eat. Don’t be afraid to take that doggy bag home.

IV. Drink 8 to 10 glasses of water a day
It is essential to stay well hydrated, especially while exercising. The benefits of water are too numerous to list, but it helps maintain hair, skin, muscles, and bones.

V. Strive for consistency, not perfection
There will always be the occasional meal or snack that is not on the recommended food list. When the train goes off track, do not let it slow you down. Enjoy the divergence, but recommit to your goal. Get back on track with your next meal.
