In My Next Life I’ll Be A Dancer, In This One I’ll Do Nia

When I was 4 years old I was in my first play. When my big, finale scene came along I was supposed to sweep a moneybag down from a chimney and rejoice. But when the moneybag was not in its place, I was forced to think on my feet and come up with a new…

Can We Please Bring Jazzercise Back?

Exercise trends come and go. Right now it’s all about yoga, all 700 variations of it. Yoga is fabulous, but sometimes it’s just too serious. Don’t you ever want to make a joke while everyone is in Downward Dog? Don’t you ever want to hear some music instead of listening to yourself breathe…

Men And Women Run For Different Reasons

Before I started training for the New York City marathon a couple years ago, I didn’t like running. I hated it. In fact, I didn’t even sign myself up to run the marathon — my mom, who counts exercising as a favorite hobby, thought it would be fun to do the race together, so she…

Metabolic Gym Gives You A Workout Without Moving. Also: We Have A Bridge To Sell You.

Living in France has caused me to be constantly flummoxed by the whole “French Women Don’t Get Fat” situation. They don’t! And even though exercise has become increasingly à la mode, I can count on one hand the number of times I have seen a Parisian woman running by the Seine (sans sports bra, I…

The New Old Fitness Craze Is Hula-Hooping

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…

Shop ‘Til You Drop (Weight)

Turns out, a little (or a lot of) shopping could actually be good for you. Well, for your body, not your closet, that is. A new study from the folks at The Skinny Cow (yes, the low-fat flying saucer makers!) says the average woman burns off approximately 48,000 calories a year shopping—shopping for clothes, food,…

You Won’t Believe How Much Beyonce Works Out For That Body!

If you tell me I can look like Beyonce, I’m going to listen. The lady has an amazing body and certainly shows it off — strutting around in her music videos and on stage in itty-bitty outfits and curve-hugging dresses. Just who does she have to thank for those perfectly toned curves? Trainer Marco Borge…

An Underwire Sports Bra Could End Your Workout Woes

I am a busty lady, and what might suck most about it is never finding a supportive sports bra—I’ve always had to wear two to make sure the Boobsey Twins stay in place when I’m on a run or working out. While there are solutions out there for C, D, and larger cupped ladies, I…

Victoria’s Secret Model Finally Admits To Not Magically Losing Baby Weight

Victoria’s Secret model Alessandra Ambrosia walked in the VS fashion show four months after giving birth to her first child.

The War On Muffin Tops: The “Skinny Jeans Workout”

Unfastening that OMG-I-can’t-breathe top button is one way to fit into your skinny jeans. But for the truly trendy, Skinny Jeans Workout classes claim to obliterate the “muffin tops” (also known as the normal, healthy “stomach”) that pop over most women’s zippers when we zip up our J.Crew matchstick jeans.

Shake Your Way To Leaner Arms And Look Ridiculous Doing It!

I’m a little confused about what people were thinking when they made this infomercial for the “Shake Weight,” but I’m pretty sure they were all men. Why else would they be claiming that giving handjobs shaking a barbell makes womens’ arms look better?

Shake Weight: The Exercise Tool For Sexytimes

We’re not sure if the Shake Weight, which is “designed specifically for women,” is supposed to teach a gal how to give a handy, or if it’s going to give her an upper body like Madonna‘s. Causing further confusion? The company claims that in “just six minutes a day, you can get arm…
