Sweat The Kelly Killoren Bensimon Way

Thanks to “The Real Housewives of New York City,” everyone has become privy to Kelly Killoren Bensimon‘s workout habits, which include skimpy exercise gear, running in the middle of traffic, and just the perfect amount of elliptical-ing so that it looks like she’s working out, but her hair remains styled just so. Clearly, given Kelly’s toned abs and sculpted arms, this is a routine everyone should adopt. Some brilliant entrepreneur decided the world was lacking in yet another workout video, and figured that with Kelly’s Playboy-approved physique and exercise appreciation, she’d be the perfect candidate to serve as fitness trainer to the masses. Yesterday, she Tweeted the good news, saying, “Get ready for my workout video to come. Who likes squats and headstands?” But will Kelly be as bats**t crazy and unstable as she is on “Housewives” — can’t wait to find out! [Twitter] Keep reading »

Getting In Shape Is Not Worth Wearing New FitFlop Clogs

FitFlop, purveyors of unattractive but not terrifying “toning” flip-flops for those who want to look fit without actually working out, has unleashed a fresh hell on us all. And what is that hell, you ask? It’s clogs. Plastic, studded and shiny in all the wrong places, the new FitFlop clogs could easily be Crocs’ flashy cousin, and we were hoping that family line would die out, not expand. Would you wear these to tone your tush or is it not worth the sacrifice? [FabSugar] Keep reading »

The New Old Fitness Craze Is Hula-Hooping

Every Monday, I rush to Crunch gym in order to sign up for one of the coveted 24 spots in my favorite gym class ever, Urban Rebounding. It’s like a race to make sure I’m there on time to score a position in class. For an hour, I bounce up and down on a mini trampoline, mixing dance moves and choreography into an aerobic workout. It’s not as easy as it sounds, and, in fact, you’ll find this is a full cardio workout. Once you’ve experienced Urban Rebounding you’ll understand. But that’s not the only child-like pastime making exercise waves these days: Hula-hooping is quickly catching up. Keep reading »

You Won’t Believe How Much Beyonce Works Out For That Body!

If you tell me I can look like Beyonce, I’m going to listen. The lady has an amazing body and certainly shows it off — strutting around in her music videos and on stage in itty-bitty outfits and curve-hugging dresses. Just who does she have to thank for those perfectly toned curves? Trainer Marco Borges and his Power Moves system, which focuses on multiple muscle groups — think jumping lunges and reverse lunge presses. Already I’m tired. Click through to check out her (seriously intense) tour workout plan! Keep reading »

Brilliant Gift Idea: Ballet—Wii-Style!

No, I was never one of those little girls being dropped off in her little pink tutu for ballet class—hell, I couldn’t even hack it in the “dance” portion of gymnastics, and my sister and I bailed on the class right before it was time to for my mother to pay for our recital get-ups. (Her exact words were, “If you don’t like it, you can quit, but do it before I have to pay $100 for each of your costumes!” Can’t blame her.) Anyways, I’ve always been in awe of ballerinas—they are toned, long, lean and have amazing flexibility. Seeing as though I can’t even touch my toes, a little flexibility could be good for me (not to mention, ahem, some toning!) so I think I’ve found the perfect holiday gift … for me. All who know me, pay attention: Wii’s “My Ballet Studio.” As the back cover says: “Learn to become a graceful dancer as you are judged on your sense of balance, flexibility, and your stability!” Yes, yes, yes—sign me up—and at 30 bucks, it’s not a wallet killer, assuming you already own Wii, that is.

An Underwire Sports Bra Could End Your Workout Woes

I am a busty lady, and what might suck most about it is never finding a supportive sports bra—I’ve always had to wear two to make sure the Boobsey Twins stay in place when I’m on a run or working out. While there are solutions out there for C, D, and larger cupped ladies, I find a lot of these bras are either made for women who also have larger bodies or they’re simply so freakin’ ugly that I just can’t bring myself to wear what looks like some t-shirt flotation device. My latest discovery is this Adidas “Simia” sports bra with underwire (underwire—thank you!). It also has all the makings of a sturdy workout garment—molded cups, wide straps and a hooked back closure. How about that. [$40, ShopAdidas.com] Keep reading »

Jessica Stam Works It Out. In Stilettos.

We are forever looking for ways to make working out less painfully boring, but we must begrudgingly admit that V magazine and Jessica Stam beat us to the punch with their new workout spread. Somehow, we neglected to realize that evening gowns, stilettos, neon wrist bands and sky high ponytails were the way to jazz up our gym routines. And while one might think that leather leggings wouldn’t allow for all that much breathing, Stam looks perfectly content in the photoshoot, so we’re inclined to believe that Rachel Zoe, the shoot’s stylist, found a solution.

The War On Muffin Tops: The “Skinny Jeans Workout”

Unfastening that OMG-I-can’t-breathe top button is one way to fit into your skinny jeans. But for the truly trendy, Skinny Jeans Workout classes claim to obliterate the “muffin tops” (also known as the normal, healthy “stomach”) that pop over most women’s zippers when we zip up our J.Crew matchstick jeans.

Quick Pic: Is Madonna Sinewy Or Sickly?

Madonna (here in Milan), toured London last night in a short-sleeved shirt. Could someone please cancel her next Tracy Anderson workout? It’s time to ease up on the aging-body battle. [Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Heidi Pratt Wants You To Lose Weight

Want workout and nutritional advice from Heidi Montag? (How very Elizabeth Hasselbeck of her.) Yeah me neither. But apparently Mrs. Pratt doesn’t care what we want—she’s once again unleashing her Playboy-rific bod on the world in a new workout DVD. The plan is to also offer such unheard of and novel nutritional advice like: Avoid all “white” foods, fill up on lean meats, green veggies, apples, berries, blah blah blah. (Oh, and for the record, “Heidi loves steak!”—only if it’s grass-fed, though.) I wonder if she’ll recommend her plastic surgeon along with all this talk of 90 minute five day-a-week workouts?
