As you know, The Sweat Life is all about helping you discover the latest and greatest in health, wellness, and fitness — with the goal of helping you find a healthy lifestyle that works best for YOU. While a huge part of this process is trial and error and learning about as many methods as possible, it is also important to take the time to truly immerse yourself into something to not only know if it’s right for you, but to actually gain any results from it.
Sometimes we just know off the bat that something isn’t right for us, but I am a true believer that it takes giving something a real try to see if it is a fit, and certainly to see what the results may be! Think about this in any other area of your life — a job, a relationship, a city — it takes some time and commitment to really get to know someone or something, and to see how it effects you and your life.
This is exactly why we are partnering with Anna Kaiser, her studio and method — AKT in Motion — and Sakara Life, for a 5-day intensive next week (February 8-February 12). Not only will this give you the opportunity to commit to a method of fitness and nutrition for 5 days, but - we promise - you are going to see insane results! Think of this as a “staycation wellness retreat” — 2 classes a day (one taught by Anna herself) in your city, and three meals a day from Sakara Life (delivered to your home or office). This is a program that Anna used to do as a travel retreat, and figured - why not let people have the same opportunity in New York?! Lucky you!
You also happen to be signing up for the same method that the likes of Shakira and Kelly Ripa use for training, and will be eating clean meals from one of the most sought after healthy meal delivery companies in the country (with its own impressive list of celebrity followers). Celebrities aside, I will be doing the intensive myself with you guys — that’s how much I believe in it!
While we know it may seem like a pricey venture, we encourage you to do some simple math on how much taking two classes a day and paying to order in Seamless three times a day, for 5 days may cost you anyway! More importantly, investing in your health is literally THE most important thing you can invest in — and this is not a program for short term results, this is a lifestyle changer, and you can’t put a price on that.
While I rarely use the word “best,” it is hard not to when two of the leading brands in health and wellness right now are coming together to offer you a single program. You’re just not going to want to miss it - and neither am I - hence, I will be doing it myself!
So join me next week. It’s going to be tough, it’s going to be sweaty, it’s going to be transformative, and man, it’s going to be fun! I can’t wait to spend 5 days with those of you who end up doing this!
Head over to AKTINMOTION.com to sign up, and use the code “SLandAK” for 10% off! There are only a few spots left, so I would encourage you to nab them quickly!
Aly Teich is Founder and Host of The Sweat Life.
Aly is a native New Yorker who grew up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. She left Manhattan for Madison, Wisconsin to become a proud Badger for four years, and since then has lived on both coasts, traveled around the world…twice, and found herself right back here in The Big Apple.
Aly has always been an active kid, and now grownup (although she still acts like a kid.) She danced her way through the School of American Ballet until her teens, competed on horseback at a pre-Olympic level, lettered in three varsity high school sports, and completed three marathons and numerous triathlons. She’s also an avid skier, golfer, aspiring surfer, and can do a mean belly flop.
Following a ten-year career in television and media — including the Late Show with David Letterman, CBS Television, Tribeca Film, and Conde Nast — Aly switched her focus to health and wellness five years ago when her mother was diagnosed with stage IV ovarian cancer. Trading in her Late Show with Letterman badge for Nikes, Aly made it her goal to help people live healthier lives. In the fall of 2013, she decided to bring all of her experience and passion to one place, The Sweat Life.
