Body Blog: Fashion and Fitness

Since I basically live in workout clothes, I've had to revamp my closet to make room for $100 couture spandex. It gets pretty ridiculous paying so much for fitness clothes, but this is how I see it: when you look good, you feel good and you perform even better! Wearing booty lifting shorts and accentuating tops motivates me to go 110% at the gym.

Body Blog: Beautiful Booty

Whether you want one as big as Kim Kardashian's or something more subtle like J-Lo's (ok, it's not that subtle, but in comparison...) I have the perfect plan for you. While squats and lunges are my quick go-to favorite, they can get a little boring. Here are some easy ways to spice up your workout routine.

Body Blog: Get Sporty (and Fit) This Summer

It's strange, but for some reason spending 45 minutes on the elliptical feels unnatural when the weather starts warming up. It's like lying in a tanning bed when it's 80 degrees and sunny outside. Clearly, I've already grown tired and bored of my normal workout routine for the year. The solution? Exploring outdoor activities that will provide me with a sense of adventure as I tone up.

Body Blog: Bringing Sexy Back

One of the most common misconceptions about getting super sexy abs is the idea that you only have to do crunches or ab exercises. False! To get that sleek front side, it’s also important to take care of its opposing muscle: the back.

Birthday Faves: 21 Things I Learned in My 21st Year

Just last February, I was planning my 21st birthday party. Now, I’m facing 22 (or as I like to call it 21+1) straight on. Even though the last twelve months have gone by, it feels like just yesterday I was indulging in jello shots and margaritas. For my 21st. Because just yesterday I was indulging in jello shots and margaritas.

Body Blog: When in Doubt, Stretch It Out

Sometimes, we may be really enthusiastic when we're working out (i.e. hot guy at 9:00 and I know he's watching me work this treadmill). This extra push on the body may cause strain to your muscles and no one wants leg cramps or excessive soreness the following morning!

Create Your Own Summer Fitness Challenge

While the rest of the world is inundated with ads encouraging them to get “slim by summer”, us college ladies are on a slightly different page. You see, for the many of us that aren’t taking summer classes, summer is a time to kick it a little bit slower, relax (while we’re not working or interning), and escape the constant pressure of being surrounded by young, good looking people 24/7.

Body Blog: Am I Healthy?

We hear all of these ads and campaigns telling us to “Be fit! Stay healthy!” But, what does that really mean? Eat 5 servings of fruit and vegetables every day? Exercise 5 times a week? Do you have to be a certain weight? A certain size? Maybe not. There's no doubt eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle are good life choices, but maybe it's time we rethink things.

One Month Challenge: Fun with Fitness, Week 3

I basically live my life by the phrase "go big or go home." I'm an extremist in every way. I either love something or hate it, am obsessed or utterly disinterested. So after last week's Rollerblading success during spring break, I returned to campus with the goal of exercising EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Body Blog: Lose Weight Like a Guy!

Hate how all the guys you know only lift weights a few times a week, skip the treadmill, eat twice as much as you, and still manage a 6-pack while you struggle to reveal any pack at all? Maybe it’s time to take a few tips from the boys!
