You might be tempted to over-indulge in all of the dangerously delicious food of the holiday season, but Noah Neiman, a trainer on the new series Work Out New York, is here to help you resist that temptation.

Neiman is one of seven trainers on Bravo’s new docu-series that explores what it’s like to be part of the Big Apple’s “sexy and exclusive” elite fitness training scene. The Nike-endorsed trainer — who has been training New York’s fittest for four years — is joined on the show by Courtney Paul, Holly Rilinger, Joe Lazo, Layla Luciano, Lena Marti and Lindsey Clayton.

This exclusive clip of the premiere, which airs Sunday, shows how the competitive fitness training world can put a strain on relationships.

And here are five tips from Neiman on how to stay fit during the holiday:

1. Don’t go ham on food
“Holidays can be, and should be, about more than stuffing your face until you’re numb enough to tolerate spending so much time with your creepy aunt that keeps unwrapped candy canes in her purse with lint and dust all over them. If you don’t want to gain extra pounds this holiday then don’t. Enjoy some indulgences, but also enjoy sitting at the table with your friends and family being able to breathe with your jeans buttoned.”

2. Stay active
“Holidays aren’t a hall pass to sit on the couch watching Jingle All The Way with Arnold Schwarzenegger on repeat for a month. Enjoy your downtime, but earn it. It feels better that way.”

3. Drink water before meals 
“This is a simple trick to help fill you up before you sit down at the table so you don’t have enough storage space for that whole jello mold, and you may not end up face first in the eggnog bowl like last year.”

4. Be weird
“In general that’s a good life rule, but never be afraid to stop what you’re doing. The gym isn’t the only place you’re restricted to moving your body. In between courses, do some squats, burpees or go for a brisk walk to cool off. Just put in a workout whenever and wherever you can throughout this holiday season.”

5. Don’t use food as an award. Ever.
“Just because you worked out doesn’t mean you’re entitled to three bowls of ice cream …Workout, eat clean and stay active. If you want a little pie, then take it, but stick to the 80-20 rule. Make 80 percent of the calories you put in your body healthy and 20 percent of them can be not-so-healthy.”

Work Out New York premieres on Sunday at 9 p.m. on Bravo.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
