How Gasparino works out to lower stress of being biz reporter
Vora writes, “Many New Yorkers run outside or hit the gym, but Mr. Gasparino, a senior correspondent for Fox Business Network, chooses to shape up by using the urban landscape. ‘Exercising outside in the city is interesting, free and effective,’ he said.
“Mr. Gasparino, 48, said his love of outdoor workouts started when he was growing up in the Bronx and his dad, who was in the Marines, encouraged him and his brother to head to the parks to shape up. His program became consistent around 2005, when his career accelerated and he needed relief from his pressure-filled job as a reporter known for working on high-profile stories.
“‘I can get a little heated on air, and my park sessions help me calm down,’ he said.
“Mr. Gasparino has created his own 75-minute workout, which he does in all weather five or six days a week. His gym is the East River Park, spanning from Montgomery Street to East 12th Street. Depending on the day, his regimen includes a two- to four-mile run around the park’s track and back and forth to the park from his apartment in Stuyvesant Town.”
