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 to spin if you’re having sex.” And it’s true! According to The Daily Beast, one hour of sex is the equivalent of a 36-minute jog, 28 minutes of yoga, 23 minutes of rock climbing, and 47 minutes of dancing. So ditch your expensive gym membership and go get laid, ladies. [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »

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 a new garment or outfit can motivate us to get up and do something. With that and my promise in mind, I went searching for cute and affordable workout wear. Check out what I found, after the jump. Keep reading »

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] Keep reading »

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 and my manhandling was purely to test the end results.) Personally, I combine my rampant OCD with my desire to stay marginally in shape — I obsessively clean my apartment every other day. You have no idea how many calories vacuuming and scrubbing the bathroom floor with a toothbrush burns! What about you? Do you stick a poison sticker on your roomie’s double stuffed Oreos or you take the stairs two at a time, racing those on the adjacent escalator? Whatever it is, share your little tidbit with the rest of us in the comments. Keep reading »

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. Being that I’m a gal who likes to skip, jump, and gallop around for no reason, this seemed like the ideal workout to try out for our “Fearlessly Fit” series. And because working out is so much more fun when you’re doing it with a buddy, I dragged along my brother-from-another-mother, our own Mind of Man, John DeVore. Keep reading »

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, clothing has never really been my thing. However, when it does come to those activities that do get my heart racing, I need music to pump me up and push me to continue on past the point of wanting to throw in the towel and eat a cheeseburger. For example, when I decide I’m going for a run I need some seriously catchy pop music on my iPod to motivate me and help me keep my pace. The song that does it for me every time? Britney Spears’ “Gimme More.” What can I say? I don’t want to disappoint the woman who giggles and says, “It’s Britney, bitch.”

So tell me — what songs get you pumped up and motivated while working out? I’ll make a playlist of all your suggestions next week! [Photo: iStockphoto] Keep reading »
