Classic Swimsuits Making A Comeback

Swimsuits have come a long way from the days of a skimpy two-piece, when the Brazilian-cut was the most popular. From one-piece bathing suits to retro-cut bathing suits, this year’s styles add a modern twist to classic designs of the past.

As summer trickles away and fall breezes in, there is no better time to take advantage of all Astoria has to offer. From football games at your favorite sports bar to making s’mores over the grill on your balcony, there are plenty of ways to enjoy the changing season. Even though there may be a crisp chill in the air, workout routines shouldn’t suffer.

Guide to Organic Eating at Your Local Farmers’ Market

—Lynette Pettinicchi
Astoria is abounding with grocery stores, supermarket chains, and delis that make it easy to run out and grab some food to prepare. The availability of these food stores simplifies our shopping experience; yet they have less to offer when it comes to healthy options.

The Benefits To Eating Seafood

—Lynette Pettinicchi
A thlete or not, protein is an important part of everyone’s diet. It gives you the energy you need to take on the day or get through a workout. You may not realize it, but seafood is a great source of energy and provides several additional health benefits thanks to omega-3 fats.

It cannot be stressed enough how important it is to be consistent with daily exercise and proper diets. Now that the warm weather has arrived going out for a jog is more pleasant than ever. But don’t just go for a jog alone; bring your dog with you. Exercising your dog is just as important as is maintaining your own health.

But don’t just go for a jog alone; bring your dog with you. Exercising your dog is just as important as is maintaining your own health. Dogs are more similar to humans than we think. They need the proper amount of physical activity daily as well as treats, commands and toys to keep their minds busy. Pawtopia founder and personal dog trainer Colleen Demling of San Francisco spoke with the Queens Scene to help us gain insightful on how to keep our furry friends healthy at home.

Free Outdoor Fitness

Lynette Pettinicchi
Instead of sitting inside of a gym or fitness studio during these bouts of nice weather, take your workout outdoors. After the winter we had, do you really want to be glued to a treadmill watching TV? Fortunately for Astorians who may need a little motivation from a group class, there are plenty of free outdoor workout options to fulfill your needs.
