Of course, nothing compares to a shower, but if you're in a rush these minis will get you fresh fast. And their…

Watch The Situation’s Workout Video Bloopers Reel

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino has a beefcake workout video for sale — you knew that was coming — and the bloopers reel is more entertaining than Deena in panties and a cowboy hat. There's nothing quite as fun as watching "Jersey Shore"'s biggest ego mess up his lines and get ragged on by the super-hot…

You Don’t Need To Spin If You’re Having Sex

I hate to quote "Sex and the City," but I'm going to quote "Sex and the City." When Miranda first started sleeping with Steve the bartender, he wanted to cuddle in the morning and she wanted to go to spinning class. Complaining about this at brunch (of course), Carrie says to Miranda, "You don't need…

Cheapskate: Workout Wear From $6

When it comes to working out, you'll usually find me in a large random T-shirt and a pair of leggings that aren't nice enough to really wear as an outfit. But now, as the summer is coming to an end, I've promised myself to keep up with my exercise. It's funny how being excited about…

Just A Couple Of Corgis Working On Their Fitness

When you're short, every ounce you gain shows. That's probably why these little Corgi pups are hitting the treadmill with such gusto; too much kibble at the dog party. [Videogum]…

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. I had a housemate in college who would squeeze his butt cheeks every time he took a step, which resulted in him having the most rock hard, pert ass I'd ever squeezed. (He was gay…

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 or something.

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. I get my yoga on (sometimes) and I'm definitely game to try new types of fitness activities -- like hip-hop dance or anti-gravity yoga -- but strenuous physical activity that involves, um,…

Share Your Most Embarrassing & Ridiculous Workout Stories!

I'll be honest -- I always feel a little ridiculous when I go to the gym. There I am, walking on the treadmill, in between the buff dude pumping iron and the impeccably toned woman running effortlessly on a steep incline; it seems brutally obvious what a workout novice I am. Even in yoga, where…

Quiz: What’s Your Fitness Style?

Do your friends marvel at your discipline to be at the gym EVERY morning at 6 a.m.? Or is your favorite exercise move texting? (C’mon it has to burn some calories, right?) Maybe you’ve become addicted to fitness gizmos ever since you tried out your mom’s Thighmaster in the 8th grade ... or you’re nursing…

Naked Man Is Supposed To Inspire Men To Work Out

I thought ads were supposed to make you want to spend money, not projectile vomit. Copyranter, who likes to frighten us, points us to this gross and gory ad for Magali's Workout System (er, Magali's Workout System?). The catchphrase is "REBORN," and, I guess, the idea is that if you are a dude, and you…

Puma’s “The Games We Play” Commercials Want You To Work It, Work It

Looking for a way to get motivated to exercise? This quirky commercial from Puma, part of their "The Games We Play" campaign, may just do it. In Michel Gondry-meets-Wes Anderson-style, a series of urban-dwelling women and men get their work-out on while showing fitness can be funky, as long as you do it to The…

Should Anorexic Men Or Women Be Allowed In The Gym?

The Daily Mail reported on one woman's harsh words for her former gym and asks: Why the hell did they let her join and work out when she was so clearly and severely anorexic? (As in skin-and-bones bad.) To the gym's credit, it soon asked Jessica Bennington, 19, to produce a doctor's note clearly stating…

Us Weekly Helps You Drop Weight Like A Star!

Hey look! It's my least favorite issue of Us Weekly -- "2009 Diets That Work!"! That is, CELEB diets that work -- all of the diets, workout plans, and "weight loss tricks" are ones that have worked for big money stars like Jennifer Aniston (such a fatty before, RIGHT?), Britney Spears, and Beyonce. And by…

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…
