We’ve all seen it. You’re huffing and puffing away on the elliptical machine, red-faced, sweat dampening your ampits and hair sticking to your forehead. That girl over there, two machines over, looks cute. She’s wearing eyeshadow. And blush. And oh my God, is she wearing lipstick to exercise?! Keep reading »

Well, this fitness video out of Korea definitely has it all: faux horses, people thrusting, abs. An infomercial for a “home equestrian system,” this commercial is one of the most unintentionally erotic things we’ve ever seen. Cannot look away! [YouTube]
I am about to share some very personal information with my fellow Frisky ladies: I had my first orgasm in a playground. No, it wasn’t some fantastic moment of bliss shared with a sexy or dashing incredible hunk while hiding away in a plastic tunnel or something. It was simply a couple of seconds of ecstasy, followed by momentary confusion after climbing and sliding down one of those metal poles usually positioned next to the swing set or slide. I was pretty young, so I didn’t really think much of it or contemplate the complexity of my experience, but research can finally explain what happened to me that faithful, play-filled day. Supposedly, there is such a thing called “coregasms” (because of its association with the abdominal muscles) and thousands of women claim to have experienced them while biking/spinning, weight lifting and, as no surprise to me, climbing poles or ropes! This find has researchers wondering, could exercise be the key to female orgasm? I definitely think so. Check out the article for yourself and tell me what you think. [Science Blog]
Serving in my capacity as a chair-bound fitness expert, I’m here to shed some light on the gym experience, and in particular, list some of the awful, awful people you’re about to meet on your self-improvement/desalination journey, and how you should deal with them. Keep reading »
Alright. Back in the saddle. Literally. It’s been how long? Shudder. Let’s not go there. I’m turning a new leaf. Ew, that sounds like a cheesy ladymag article. Let’s just call it what it is: I’m out of shape and suddenly have a desire to live longer. Exercise is the key to hotness and longevity.
Class getting started. Nice Girl Talk mashup, Instructor Lady. Feeling pumped. OK, time to increase the speed and what? There are definitely parts of my body jiggling that did not jiggle before when I used to do this. I have Bridget Jones “wobbly bits.” They used to not wobble! Wait, stop thinking like that. Think positive. Now is the time to clear my mind. Cleeeaaarrr. Caaaaaalm. Breathe … Keep reading »
There are a lot of things in this world that I am interested in learning how to do. Play my ukulele! Become fluent in Italian! Floral arrangement! Learning to appreciate the music of Phish! I’m generally adventurous. But there has been one thing I just have never been able to get down with.
I absolutely hate to exercise. Keep reading »
If you’re a guy who’s really into fitness, what’s the last thing you’d probably do? Try and gain a bunch of weight. But that’s exactly what Drew Manning is doing, just so he can prove how easy it is to take the weight back off. Drew!
Manning, who is a professional trainer, has helpfully posted his current weight-gaining diet regimen, which includes donuts, pizza, ice cream — basically everything I love. Right now he’s eating around 3,500 calories a day. When he begins his diet menu, he’ll be eating around 2,900 calories, but much of that will be protein, instead of the high fat, sugar and carb diet he’s currently rocking. Keep reading »
I admitted last week that after several months of no exercise, I’ve gotten a little flabby. Since I’m not the most creative person when it comes to fitness, I asked you to give me your easy, fuss-free exercise tips. Many of you suggested I begin running or walking, instead of working out in the small inside space I have available. You’ve definitely convinced me to use the several-miles long park that is right across the street from my home. But what were some of Frisky readers’ other creative tips? Keep reading »
Earlier this year, I decided that my personal trainer wasn’t a necessity. I told myself that I could save the money I paid him, while employing the exercises he taught me and taking advantage of BeFitNYC, NYC’s free or low-cost fitness program. But you know what? I got lazy … big surprise right? So, now I’ve got a tricycle tire around my mid-section, a droopy butt, and fat knees. I need help! Please reveal your easy, fuss-free, and dare I say fun at home/free exercise tips in the comments. Hopefully, these exercises can be performed in a 3′ x 5′ floor space because that’s all the room I have. And look out for a post of all the good tips next week. Keep reading »
