Find Your Perfect Fall Workout

With winter holidays just around the corner, the mall sales are in full force, the smell of pumpkin spice lattes is in the air, and shopping wish lists start to fill up with long sleeves for sweater weather.   read more


The 4 Crossfit-Inspired Moves Your Workout Is Missing

Like Gwyneth Paltrow, mascara and pixie cuts, Crossfit is a topic that people have feelings about. Love it or hate it, there's no denying that the bodies of elite Crossfitters Camille Leblanc-Bazinet and Annie Thorisdotter prove that "strong is the new sexy." The fitness program even has a slew of celebrity fans, like the Jessicas (Alba and Biel).   read more


Got 10 Minutes? We've Got Your Perfect Workout

Think about what you actually do with 10 free minutes of your time. I waste at least 10 minutes each morning combing through my closet with seemingly nothing to wear. And then I spend 10 minutes perfecting my cat eye and attempting to tame my beastly hair. Then there are the minutes I waste on non-appearance-related pursuits that are probably even less beneficial: Like the 10 minutes I spend flipping through new releases until my boyfriend and I agree on the perfect movie. Or the 10 (or more likely, 60) minutes I devote to browsing pictures of cats and corgis online.   read more


The Cutest Workout Clothes That Aren't Lululemon

Some people love to splurge on dresses or denim. But whenever I go on a shopping spree, I tend to blow my money on workout wear. Printed cropped leggings, cute tanks and strappy sports bras are my weakness.   read more


7 Fitness Apps That'll Get Your Lazy A$$ in Gear

Before smartphones, life was tough. If you wanted to keep track of your workout, you had to use this thing called a "pen" and write it all down. Now there are fitness apps that do it all for you.   read more


The Only 3 Moves You Need to Get a Dancer's Body

There's a reason the dancers you see on stage (or on TV shows like "So You Think You Can Dance") look so good: They work hard … like 12-hours-a-day hard. Since most of us don't have the time or desire to work up that kind of sweat, we talked to former New York City Ballet (NYCB) dancer Rachel Piskin and celebrity trainer Anna Kaiser of AKT In Motion to find out how us regular folk (you know, those not training for reality TV stardom) can get the body of a Balanchine muse -- in just three easy, do-anywhere moves a day.   read more


The Only 3 Moves You Need for Sexy, Sculpted Arms

Ah, the warmer weather we've been waiting for has finally arrived. Which means it's time to replace the arm exercise you were getting with the remote control (I think I'll miss you most of all, "Pretty Little Liars"), with actual arm exercises -- hand weights and all.   read more


7 Major Workout Mistakes That Keep Advil in Business

You're finally following through on that New Year's resolution. You'll get to the gym, sign up for that 10K and come up with a workout plan. But before you do, consider this: Every year, more than 174,500 women end up in the ER with an exercise-related injury. The No. 1 cause of exercise-related injury? "Overenthusiasm," says Dr. Joseph Horrigan, a board certified chiropractic sports medicine practioner at DISC Sports & Spine Center in Los Angeles.   read more


8 Crazy-Fun Runs You've Gotta Try

Blame it on my crappy knees or a childhood filled with organized sports that regularly used sprints as punishment, but I hate running. I complain about it on a daily basis, and yet, I drag myself to the treadmill and force myself to run to reap its cardiovascular benefits, to continue to fit into my skinny jeans, and because the gym's TV is my only access to cable (a girl's gotta watch "Breaking Bad" live before the spoilers get tweeted left and right).   read more


10 New Workouts That Put Prancercise to Shame
