The Moxi Skate Team is a rollerskating club in Long Beach, California whose sole mission is to "Get the world on wheels again." Known for their bright, vibrant colors and high-knee tube socks, the members of Team Moxi aren't anything close to what you think. They flip, they grind, they are courageous and incredibly tough. Most importantly, they spread the word that the best approach to fitness is finding something that truly moves you - and rollerskating is exactly that. They call it "funning out, not working out" and Ashley Roberts is all about it.

Laughter is physical. It causes your muscles to contract, your lungs to work overtime, and can leave you feeling exhausted. So, can laughter be considered a workout? To find out, Ashley is meeting with a character from one of Mas Mejor's most viewed comedians, Creeper (Frankie Quinones). Creeper, inventor of Cholofit, has a different approach to keeping you invested in fitness. Cholofit is not a workout. It's a lifestyle, and the best part is you can (and probably already do) use it everyday.

Double Dutch is a culturally iconic jump rope game that rose to prominence in the 1980’s and is quickly making a comeback.

Cuba today is captivating! It's safe, warm and welcoming, vibrantly colorful, and above all, it's beautiful. And between the antique classic cars, the world's finest cigars, the seemingly endless stretches of sand, salsa dancing, bottomless rum drinks and incredible eats, Cuba has once again become a global destination.

<![CDATA[Move: Classic Cars and Casino Salsa]]> Sun, 01 Oct 2017 01:00:00 -0400 http://media.nbcnewyork.com/images/213*120/1LK_3336_CUBA_Move_WEB_v2.jpg

And because most dance historians trace the roots of Salsa to the streets of Cuba, and "Casino," the cuban-style of this art form is entirely their own, Ashley learns to move like a Cuban from the Rueda de Casino dance troop... and it's all in the hips.

With recent economic reform, Cuba is in the midst of a culinary revolution and privately owned restaurants, known as “Paladars," are popping up throughout the country.

Cuba is so much more than the city of Havana, and when you explore the island nation, you're never too far from a beautiful beach. But there's one stretch of sand, maybe more than any other in the world, that's had an enormous impact on international relations: Playa Giron, in The Bay of Pigs. Ashley explores the local war museum while snorkeling the aquatic depths of this historic landscape.
