Hello, Beginners! Have you ever seen people at the gym rolling their legs over tubes and thought, “What the hell?” Or alternatively, have you ever seen it and thought, “Boy, that looks great, I wish I knew how to do that”? Good news! I’m here to help. Short version: Foam rollers are self-massage tools that… READ MORE »

We’re told repeatedly that our New Year’s resolutions are doomed to implode sooner rather than later, but naysayers always keep it vague. “Oh, you’ll quit the second life gets stressful again,” they’ll say, but what the hell does that mean? Sometimes it’s better to know exactly when to expect our own failure to steel ourselves for a grim… READ MORE »

Like riding the subway or running out to the corner store to get toilet paper, tampons and seltzer, working out is one of those activities that occurs in public space, but is widely acknowledged as private.  I will work out begrudgingly, but usually prefer to do so in the privacy of my own home, or an… READ MORE »

When I went to the gym early-early on Monday morning, I was shocked: Three of the four squat racks were occupied, two personal trainers were working with clients, and people were already on the Stairmaster (I don’t know why the Stairmaster is the first machine to get used at my gym every morning, but there… READ MORE »

In March, I signed up for a 5k called Bacon Chase that took place in June (the lure being that you got unlimited bacon at the end). I figured by the time it rolled around, I’d be ready for it. So, of course, I proceeded to not prepare at all and then run it anyway… READ MORE »

Back in May, I wrote about my complete and total infatuation with power lifting. I was happy to see that there were so many positive reactions to it, and so much agreement among women who also love to power-lift — but I was dismayed to see that some of you have had a hard time… READ MORE »

For some fitness-conscious submissives in Australia, working out is synonymous with getting off thanks to dominatrix/personal trainer Mistress Anna. The Sydney dom coaches kinksters who work out in collars and gimp masks, ordering pushups to kiss her black latex  high heels and administering a spank when necessary. She even finds ways to incorporate kinky toys… READ MORE »

I feel like it’s a complete and total cliché to say things like “We all know your workout routine can get repetitive and boring, so here’s some ways to spice it up!” – So I’m not going to say that. What I am going to say is this: On top of activities you do to… READ MORE »

Can’t the President of a powerful nation get a little private beefcake-ing time? Apparently not! President Obama was in Poland recently for, like, work or something, and decided to squeeze in a little fitness time at the hotel gym — and some sneaky bastard filmed him the whole time. The main thing I learned from watching a… READ MORE »

There are some people who seem to be physically incapable of sitting still, whose idea of a great Saturday morning is waking up early, running 10 miles, and pumping some iron. There are other people who seem to be physically incapable of leaving the couch, whose idea of a great Saturday is sleeping in til noon… READ MORE »

The first time I put a barbell across my back, I was in love.
It wasn’t like I had never lifted weights before; I had, but never like this. Thanks to the myth that I needed to do high reps with light weights to get  “toned” arms and legs (because, of course, as a woman,… READ MORE »

Three things to know about me: 1) I really do not enjoy working out, 2) I’m not really inclined to leave my apartment if I don’t have to and 3) I have ADHD.  Therefore, it takes an enormous amount of will power to get myself to leave my apartment in order to go to the… READ MORE »

Last week, while contemplating the tattered, limp tangle of spandex and bent underwires that composed my current sports bra collection, I knew it was time to bite the bullet and go shopping for a new one. I have DD boobs, recently started jogging again, and these worn out bras just weren’t cutting it anymore.

I have a confession to make: “Toned Up” is my new “guilty” pleasure — but I am unashamed.

My friend/workout buddy Kate introduced me to the show, which follows the lives of the ladies behind the Tone It Up fitness empire, and I’ve secretly gotten totally hooked. The show follows best friends Karena and Katrina (yeah,… READ MORE »

Last week, I wrote about Jen Selter, a 20-year-old Long Island woman who supposedly has the “best butt on Instagram.” While Jen does indeed have a fantastic derriere, I was more interested in what she told the New York Post about her booty pics: they are inspiring. I quote: “If [my Instagram account] motivates people… READ MORE »

Given how more than one huffing and puffing old man has suffered a heart attack underneath his mistress, you might believe a romp is the sack is akin to a SoulCycle session. Your heart rate is going! You sweat! Afterwards you want a Gatorade!

Shocking! Christina Aguilera cares more about her five-year-old son, Max, than exercise. It seems that we’re supposed to be surprised enough for that statement to be worthy of a headline. Apparently, she’s expected to be a veggie-eating robot who delegates the “child” nonsense to nannies in favor of spending extra hours alone on the treadmill. READ MORE »

Life is stressful and chaotic and scary and it doesn’t come with a handbook. Day-to-day life can get so crazy that it’s hard to remember how beautiful life is. When I moved to New York City for college and life got even crazier, I knew I had to find a way to calm myself down fast. READ MORE »
