Girl Talk: Why I Ran A Half-Marathon

Ami Angelowicz / May 27, 2010

In fifth grade I was the new kid in school, which is always hard. But I think it’s hardest in gym class. Especially if you’re the new “chubby” kid with zero athletic ability. Hello locker room spitballs.

Susannah Breslin / May 21, 2010

Here’s a fact: Right now, I am the fattest I’ve ever been in my whole life. Period. End of story. I have all the respect in the world for Crystal Renn and every woman who can love her body no matter what size it is, but I am not that woman. (Granted, not being that… More »

The New Old Fitness Craze Is Hula-Hooping

Bianca Posterli / March 10, 2010

Every Monday, I rush to Crunch gym in order to sign up for one of the coveted 24 spots in my favorite gym class ever, Urban Rebounding. It’s like a race to make sure I’m there on time to score a position in class. For an hour, I bounce up and down on a mini… More »

Amelia McDonell-Parry / September 25, 2009

I recently crossed something off my bucket list. At 29-almost-30, I finally learned how to surf.

How To Get Michelle Obama’s Arms

Annika Harris / March 5, 2009

Pole dance, chair dance, and striptease are fun ways to workout, but let’s be real, you aren’t going to use these moves to entice your guy no matter what Flirty Girl Fitness promises. I can just see my BF bursting into hysterics as I try to do the Cat Crawl Push-up or Goddess Rising a… More »
