People Exercise For Health, Not Beauty

Gym addicts may not be the shallow narcissists we think they are. Most people — more than 54 percent of 2,882 polled by EveryDay Health and the American Council on Fitness — said their health was the reason they exercised, not a quest for the perfect beach bod, and they’re doing it for their loved…

Heidi Pratt Wants You To Lose Weight

Want workout and nutritional advice from Heidi Montag? (How very Elizabeth Hasselbeck of her.) Yeah me neither. But apparently Mrs. Pratt doesn’t care what we want—she’s once again unleashing her Playboy-rific bod on the world in a new workout DVD. The plan is to also offer such unheard of and novel nutritional advice like: Avoid…

Overweight Moms Underestimate Child’s Weight

New research suggests that a mother’s ability to determine whether her child is overweight and at risk for physical health problems depends on her own weight. Overweight mothers seem to have a tendency of underestimating their child’s weight, according to the findings of Dr. Petra Warschburger and Katja Kroller of the University of Potsdam i…

Doin’ It With Dr. V: Exercising Your Kegels

Hi, I’m Dr. V. I’m not a real doctor, I just play one on the Internet. What I am is a lady, a lady who is a fool for love! And I love nothing more than sex. My deepest desires have happily led me on many adventures in the sack, but they have also, sadly,

Do Skinny Women Really Have More Sex?

Listen, I don’t know where they get this “research” or who they’re asking, but according to a new study, women who are a size four have sex more often than size eight women. Now, I think if they continued to do the math they’d find size 16’s like me do it even more than both…

Poll: Balls Versus Boobs

While my Dolly Parton-esque double D’s provide my sexy-time friends with far, far more than a handful, my breasts prevent me from normal activities. Like crossing my heart to say the Pledge of Allegiance. Like squeezing between tables at restaurants without whacking someone in the face. Like wearing button-up shirts and running at the same…

Lizards Mark Territory By Pumping Up

The gym I belong to (notice I didn’t say “work out at”) isn’t the kind of place where beefcake-like men make primal-sounding noises as they hoist barbells above their heads. If it were that kind of place, I wouldn’t even be a member, because grunting guys would be in control. Need a five-pound weight? Too…

Creepy Gym Makes Working Out A Spectator Sport

Working out sounds good in theory: tighten up your bod, wear comfy, colorful spandex clothes in public guilt -free, and get your endorphins going. But it’s ads like this one for David Barton Gym that reaffirm my commitment to my flabby physique. It makes working out seem like more of a spectator sport than a…

Exercise Your (And His!) Kegel Power

Kegels. Any woman who has ever pushed a baby out her cooter will tell you all about how powerful exercising those muscles down there is. I had no idea the same work out worked for men. In this informative video, made by the Sexual Health Guru, Coach Kendra (who seems vanilla in yoga…
