Bianca Jade’s, aka MizzFit, mission is to make fitness fashionable! She wants you to feel good and look good while you’re doing it. There is nothing more Tribeca’tante’ish than truly living the mantra “there’s no such thing as sweatpants”.
What do you do?
I’m a fitness trend expert, online and on TV. I also do things like sportswear styling, consulting for fitness brands and hosting health & wellness events.
How old are you?
I’d rather tell you how many pushups I can do. Age is meaningless to me. When I turn 100, I’ll start telling people how old I am. I’m definitely in it for the long haul.
Where did you grow up?
Saint Louis, Missouri. Y’know the arch? The Cardinals? Barbecue ribs. It’s one of the greatest places on earth. Lots of nice, happy people. And yes, the home of custard. Every once in a while it’s nice to have a taste ; )
What are you working on right now?
I’m revving up for New York Fashion Week and then a few TV show appearances on the topic of “Fit Valentine’s Day”.
What does your Wednesday night dinner normally look like?
Sometimes it’s a home cooked meal with my man (we love cooking healthy together) and sometimes it’s Energy Kitchen. The mashed sweet potatoes and the edamame+corn sides are SO GOOD! No matter what, Kale, in some form, is always on my plate.
Saturday afternoons you are ….
Not hungover. I pride myself on not drinking. For years, I drank alcohol even though I never liked it. I’m so thankful to have a boyfriend who doesn’t drink either. Instead we work out together. We go to this really chill, boutique yoga studio near our apartment called Yoga216.
Favorite place to gab and eat?
The Cafe at Jivamukti is one of my favorite places to go during the day. The environment always feel so intellectually stimulating and cozy to me. I could hang out there for hours. At night I like to meet up with friends at Hu Kitchen.
Any interesting scenes you’ve discovered lately?
Yes, I went to Massachusetts for the first time this winter and stayed in a beautiful house along the beach in Beverly. It was beautiful to see and smell a cold beach and watch the fog roll in and out. But if you mean to ask me about a cool city scene, I guess I’ve lived in NYC for some time now and I’m used to seeing trendy scenes come and go. These days, the only scenes that wow me are made by nature. When I see a vast beach or wooded trail, all I wanna do is run.
Describe how you choose what to wear?
When it comes to fitness, I think about the type of workout, the temperature, how much I’m going to sweat and where I’m headed post-workout. From there, it’s just like painting. I start with one color and then start mixing and shaping. I like to be creative and invent new looks. My closet is always a fresh canvas.
You have to pry ___________ out of my cold dead hand!
My computer. I’m constantly updating MizzFIT.com. I take my MacBook Pro with me everywhere, whether I have to shove it in my purse or gym bag. The weight keeps my arms toned!
