Fitness Furniture Combines Home Gym And Locker Room In One

Closets mean different things for different people. If you’re Carrie Bradshaw, it’s a sanctuary and shrine. If you’re a slob, it’s your cleaning quick-fix that houses any assortment of junk. And if you’re someone who lives in a cramped studio apartment in Chinatown, then you probably don’t have a closet, so for you it represents… More »

“Thintervention”‘s Jackie Warner Says You Have To Break Your Sugar Addiction

“Nothing is a no-no. But moderation is key. As for sugar, you should cut all sugar out of your diet for five days in a row, maybe Monday through Friday. This will allow your brain to break its addiction to sugar. But be sure to allow yourself a cheat meal on the sixth and seventh… More »


Do You Think Toning Sneakers Work?

Have you ever tried toning sneakers? They’re the funnily-shaped exercise shoes that promise skinnier legs, and fitness companies like Reebok and Sketchers are now doing a bang-up business selling them. There are conflicting studies, however, on whether the kicks actually work. The New York Times quotes a study (not conducted by the companies selling the… More »


Girl Talk: My Secret To Weight Loss? High Cholesterol!

I knew that I had gained some weight in the past few years. While I wasn’t 100 percent happy with my extra pudge, I didn’t feel motivated enough to lose it. Ten pounds wasn’t really that much. My boyfriend accepted me no matter what, and even my mother couldn’t tell I wasn’t as skinny as… More »


Are Formerly Chubby Trainers More Credible?

I’m going to tell you a secret that I usually don’t have to reveal—I am a closet aerobics junkie.

What’s The Most Unusual Way You Stay In Shape?

We all have some little daily habit that actually contributes to our fitness, whether we’re aware of it or not.

How I Learned To Play Soccer And Love The Ball

I am not what you call graceful and athletic. When I told my friends/parents/significant other that I was joining a co-ed soccer team they laughed. I mean, my mom laughed. In my face.

Fearlessly Fit: Amelia Forces John DeVore To BOING With Kangoo!

A few months ago, I posted a Quick Pic of Kourtney and Kim Kardashian bouncing along a beach boardwalk with weird boots on their feet, which I then dubbed “pogo jogging.” Further investigation revealed they were wearing “Kangoo Jumps,” shoes worn while participating in some new fangled fitness fad out of, uh, Europe… More »


What’s Your Favorite Song To Work Out To?

As I’m sure you’ve noticed in the two “Fearlessly Fit” videos I’ve done so far, I’m not what you’d call a fitness buff.

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… More »

I Lost 10 Pounds By — Well, I’m Not Entirely Sure

Every so often, I’ve written a post here and there on The Frisky about wanting to lose weight. Most recently, I wrote about how I have a big butt, and while I may not have found a solution to bring about world peace, I did find skinny jeans that fit. The only reason that I… More »

Girl Talk: Why I Became Obsessed With Break Dancing

Growing up in Brooklyn, I was a tomboy without any contact with actual boys. I was the youngest of two girls raised by a single mother.
