Even fitness junkies suffer from bad habits sometimes

I know many people look to me as beacon of knowledge and wisdom when it comes fitness, but I must confess that I am only human too.

Bikini season

As the weather slowly warms and the flora and fauna start to awaken from their winter slumber, the only thing that makes dread the otherwise lovely transition into to spring is all the talk about getting ready for bikini season.

Giving Physique 57 a second chance

Have you ever tried to like a workout DVD, doing it 2 or 3 times before realizing it just isn't for you?  Or maybe you disliked it so much, you chucked it into the garbage can after 10 minutes?  Very few workouts have that affect on me (*ahem, Kettleworx), but ever-so-often, I find myself deeply disliking a workout.

 Last fall, I found myself jumping on and then quickly off the Physique 57 bandwagon.  I was initially glad to be rid of those DVDs, but recently, I found myself rethinking my opinions on P57.

Circuit training has become a necessity for me

I love lifting heavy.  I enjoy a good yoga session.  I yearn for a sweaty, high impact cardio session.

But let's face it, as my life becomes more hectic (ugh, I don't want to talk about it), I have to find what is time efficient, quick and dirty, and gets the job done.

Review: Metamorphosis by Tracy Anderson

Over a month ago, I pledged not to speak of Tracy Anderson or any of her products because of all the hoopla surrounding the release of her newest program, Metamorphosis.  At the time, I was overcome by hype that I must have spoken nonstop about Tracy Anderson.  Now that the smoke has subsided and the chatter has died down, I think I can now give an objective review of Metamorphosis.

My final say on rotations

It's only March, and I have already had the worst luck with exercise rotations this past year.  One minute I am pledging to do 4-week rotations, the next minute I'm whittling that down to two, and then after that I see a new product I like....well, you get the picture.

Fitness and horror cinema: an unlikely duo

I thought I'd share something that made me laugh recently.  We already know what a slave I am to the fitness industry, but for those of you who don't know me beyond this blog, I'm also a fan of horror films.

My first fitness celebrity crush

I don't know if this post is conducive to my blog, or if I should leave it for a "dear diary" entry, but I feel the need to get this off my chest.  Normally, I have a thing for non-conventionally good-looking actors with a foreign twist (hello Thomas Kretschmann...), but I recently started an infatuation a fascination with one of America's most well-known fitness models: Clark Bartram.
