Episode 12: The Home Stretch - Online Fitness
This week we’re trying out online fitness. Back in the 1980s when VCRs were new, Jane Fonda brought aerobics classes into millions of homes with her workout videos. Today, streaming video services will bring any workout you can imagine into your home. This seems to be the ideal way to fit in some exercise and save money on expensive classes. But how do you get started and how do you find the workout that’s right for you? Jen, Noelle, Megan and Marsha are ready to help figure it out.

Episode 11: Cold, Naked and Afraid – Cryotherapy

Whole body cryotherapy is a wellness treatment that is popular with athletes and people who suffer from chronic pain. It involves standing in a tank where temperatures drop to -212 degrees Farenheit. It is supposed to relieve pain and boost healing from injuries. Expert: Tammy Bauer of Lancaster Cryotherapy Sponsor: Healthy Me PASpecial Guest: Tammy Bauer.

Episode 10: All By Myself - Sensory Deprivation Tanks
Have our senses abandoned us? We're trying out Sensory-Deprivation Tanks. You’ve probably seen the Groupons for these so-called float spas - a next-millenium take on the decidedly 1970s trend of floating in a tank cut off from all outside stimulus. Is it really like Altered States or connecting with the Upside Down in Stranger Things? The Fit Crew has some very strong opinions on all things float spa.

Episode 8: Matcha-Do About Nothing
The Fit Crew tries matcha, the finely powdered green tea from Japanese tea ceremonies. It is now popping up all over the food world - from matcha drinks at the local coffee shop to ice cream, soba noodles and even Instagram yogurt bowls. But what is it, what does it taste like - and are there real benefits to turning our food and drinks a color only Kermit-the-Frog could love? And just what was Noelle drinking?

Inspired by the infectious, energizing, and sweat-dripping fun of playing the drums, this high-intensity cardio class literally puts drum sticks in your hands and lets you pound out the beat as part of your workout.

Episode 6: It's Like Coachella for Fitness
This week we’re trying out… Fitness Festivals. You’ve probably seen these events popping up in your Facebook feed - that’s how we found out about one in our area. Depending on the event, they showcase the hottest fitness and wellness trends, offering classes, cooking demonstrations and more. But who goes to these festivals? Is it Coachella for the fit set, with Lululemon leggings as far as the eye can see - or is there something there for the more casual fitness enthusiast? The Fit Crew visited a couple fitness festivals this summer to find out. Thrive FitFest Artz N' Motion Tastefully Fit cafe Sponsor: Great Plates – the new Healthy Me PA recipe book.

Episode 5: There's a Nap for That
This week the Crew is trying out sleep tracker apps. We all know we should be getting eight hours of sleep every night - but what happens after your head hits the pillow? Sleep tracker apps can help shed light on what goes on during the night - providing information about the quantity and some say the quality of sleep as well. Wearables: Fitbit Apple Watch Sleep apps: Sleep Cycle Guests: Penn State Sleep Research and Treatment Center Julio Fernandez-Mendoza, PhD, CBSM Venkatesh Basappa Krishnamurthy, MD Sponsor: Healthy Me PASpecial Guests: Dr. Julio Fernandez-Mendoza and Dr. Venkatesh Krishnamurthy.

Episode 4: Passing the Barre
This week we’re trying out Barre. Who doesn’t want to be a ballerina? And ballet moves at the barre form the basis of this workout. As one Barre studio describes, it’s a way to “sculpt and tone your body with the grace of a dancer.” And it’s so popular that studios dedicated just to this fitness workout are popping up all over the country - taking on - or perhaps inspired by - the Pilates juggernaut.

Episode 3: Breakfast for Your Brain
It feels like meditation - and apps for meditation - are everywhere right now. I keep seeing this animation for the Calm app in my Facebook feed - the one where you do nothing for 15 seconds while you watch a video of rain gently falling on some leaves... It’s a modern twist on an ancient tradition. Meditiation Apps Insight Timer Calm Headspace Books 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works--A True Story by Dan Harris Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics: A 10% Happier How-to Book by Dan HarrisSpecial Guest: Yasmin Haut.

Episode 2: Kung-Fu Fighting
This week we try out Cardio Kickboxing, the high intensity interval training technique inspired by the martial arts.
