5 Great Workouts You Can Do While Watching TV

A saleswoman, when told of the trend, cursed and put down the phone to express her disbelief to colleagues. She says she prefers to take traders to Yankees games and then Sin City, a strip club near the ballpark. Steve Starker, co-founder of brokerage BTIG, says he spins four or five times a week at SoulCycle studios in Greenwich, Conn., the Upper East Side, and in the Hamptons, sometimes with clients. His brokerage sponsored a charity spinning class for clients earlier this year at Flywheel. All it is is bonding, says Starker, whos also an investor in Cyc Fitness, a chain of less-expensive spinning studios geared toward college students and young professionals. Youre saying, Lets go spin this morning, get a sweat, and grab a juice after, says Starker, whose company has studios in Austin, Tex., and Madison, Wis. Theres still the ones that love to be entertained with a good bottle of wine, steak, and quiet conversation, but so many people are more health-conscious these days. The bottom line: Spinning classes and other exercise sessions have become a popular way for Wall Streeters to entertain clients.

Coaches’ Choice Workouts

For these situations, Chicago-based personal trainer Traci D. Mitchell recommends wall squats, which she says strengthen the front and sides of the quads as well as the glutes. Keeping your upper back against a wall facing the television, take a big step forward. Sink down until you feel like you’re sitting in a straight-back chair, with both thighs parallel to the ground. Mitchell likes to do pyramids: hold the squat for 10 seconds, then rest for a minute or so; hold for 20 seconds, then rest again. Keep lengthening the intervals until you get to 40 seconds, then take it back down (squat for 30 seconds, 20 seconds, 10 seconds).

It was a good incentive to run faster.” WHO: Jack Daniels, coach of Janet Cherobon-Bawcom WHAT: 3 3 miles at threshold pace WHY: To establish the magical “T” (threshold) pace and “long groove” necessary in marathon racing WHEN: Once every five or six weeks in marathon buildup and once about three weeks out from race day.
