Watch The Situation’s Workout Video Bloopers Reel

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has a beefcake workout video for sale — you knew that was coming — and the bloopers reel is more entertaining than Deena in panties and a cowboy hat. There’s nothing quite as fun as watching “Jersey Shore”‘s biggest ego mess up his lines and get ragged on by the…

Emma Stone Says Filming Sex Scenes Is A Workout

“Simulation of sex is a real workout. We must have done a hundred takes. There was an oxygen take at one point. It took two days. Simulated sex is really fun, but it’s not easy.

Self-Toning Clothing: Miracle Or Misrepresentation?

Between Thanksgiving and all of the holiday dinners that will be going down this month, a few extra pounds will probably be hiding under our belts. And as tried and true as diet and exercise can be to limit the extra poundage we put on, a faster, more immediate “cure” sounds better. There are Spanx,…

A Sports Bra That Works = Finally, I Could Jump For Joy

Scientists are finally working to remedy a problem that has plagued us big-chested ladies since we hit puberty: sports bras don’t really work for us. Most athletic bras have a shelf that is about as effective at holding the twins in place as a band-aid is on a gaping wound, and the bras with cu…

Nike Likes Big Butts And It Cannot Lie

What’s the best way to sell running shoes to women? Nike goes with big butts. (Well, “big” by print advertising standards. You’re not going to see Gabby Sidibe’s ass in any of these Nike Women ads.) In 2005, the company hawked its lady products with a big juicy booty. Similar to Dove’s Real Beauty campaign,…

How Pole Dancing Changed My Life

I sat on a purple mat wearing black yoga pants and a long-sleeved shirt across from 10 other women whose faces I couldn’t quite make out. The studio was dark, except for a few fake flickering candles lining the walls and two red-lit lamps. I looked around and counted four armchairs and fives poles. What…

5 Forms Of Fitness That Make You Feel Like A Kid Again

It seemed so much easier to exercise when we were kids, right? I mean, I had zero responsibility and got to spend hours playing outside. Getting my heart rate up for 30 minutes was no biggie. I didn’t even know I was doing it. Growing up in weather-friendly Arizona, I did a lot of bike…

Sweat The Kelly Killoren Bensimon Way

Thanks to “The Real Housewives of New York City,” everyone has become privy to Kelly Killoren Bensimon’s workout habits, which include skimpy exercise gear, running in the middle of traffic, and just the perfect amount of elliptical-ing so that it looks like she’s working out, but her hair remains styled just so.

How Bikram Yoga Is Making Me One Of “Those People”

Let’s get one thing straight: I am not an “exercise person.” In fact, if I were dating some smart, hilarious, darling and hot dude who was otherwise perfect but had a penchant for enthusing about his early morning gym regimen, I probably wouldn’t call him again. Overtly healthy people annoy me, maybe because they have…
