This Hilarious Workout Video Has A Twist Ending That You Will Not See Coming

When I saw this video posted on Gawker touted as possibly “The Best Fitness Video Yet,” I thought “Pfff how good can a workout video be? Does someone slip on a banana peel while doing lunges? Is there a cameo from the Prancercise lady?,” then I started watching the video and giggled. It’s ridiculously goofy and then ends with an even goofier twist. Watch right now if you can. It’s a mere 33 seconds and you don’t even need to turn the sound on, but it doesn’t hurt. More »

Shopping Guide: Ballet Inspired Workout Clothes For Barre And Beyond

Shopping Guide:  Ballet Inspired Workout Clothes For Barre And Beyond

Barre workouts are fun because I can pretend to still be a little girl in the throes of her tragically short lived ballet career. Part of the fun of ballet, for children and adults alike is the clothing.

Winter Workout Clothes That Wonât Make You Look Like A Snowman

When the weather outside is frightful, there’s nothing you can do but suck it up and try to make the best of it. To combat the abominable weather, you know you have to dress accordingly.

Victoria’s Secret models be crazy! Sometimes they eat BBQ right before the runway show! Sometimes they forego even water for days on end leading up to the deeply ridiculous spectacle! While every single celebrity in the world answers questions about what they eat and how they workout exactly the same–fish and vegetables, chicken and salad, chasing a toddler, everything in moderation–Lily Aldridge is… the most recent one!

How To Keep Your Blow-Out Intact Through A Work-Out

Do you ever get a blow-out in the morning and then realize that you have to skip your work-out so as not to destroy it? Does it lead into a glorious spiral of skipping work-outs forever, and just lying on the couch eating thin-mint cookies like some sort of 19th century harem lady? That sounds fabulous. I admire that.

However, if you actually feel inconvenienced that you have to skip that work-out, well, I have solved that problem for you! Or rather Gregory Patterson, a stylist at Blow (a New York blow dry bar) has that problem solved. Here are his tips for keeping your blow-out intact: More »

Poll: Will You Exercise Over The Holidays?

Poll: Will You Exercise Over The Holidays?

Today, I took the liberty of not going to Pilates in order to get some errands done before leaving town. I also took the liberty of having Wendy’s for lunch, which later turned out to be a tactical error, but that’s neither here nor there. The point is, I felt perfectly find about both of those choices because it’s the fucking holidays, and so who has time to stick to an exercise routine/eat anything that takes longer to cook than a fast food burger?

Our Top 5 Gym Pet Peeves
