Are you starting to feel the (financial) pressure of needing as stylish a wardrobe for the gym as for going out? Stop sweating — or start! — because my online consignment fave Twice is now selling & accepting 20 fitness brands, as of this week.
When I was a little girl (like many of you, I’m sure), I fantasized about running away with the circus. There was nothing more fun and romantic to me than the idea of being a trapeze artist or an acrobat on a bareback horse. I love animals, and thanks to my dance, gymnastics, and figure skating competitions, was no stranger to either stunts or sequins.
Home with a sick (but on the mend!) dog since Monday, I’ve been watching a lot of the Wimbledon women’s tennis tournament. (Petra Kvitova was KILLING it all week long, and definitely deserved the big win today. But I digress.)
Last night, my sister and I took my mom to see Black Swan for her birthday, and — unlike most of the reviews and reactions I’ve read of Darren Aronofsky’s new film so far — I really loved it and found it to be absolutely beautiful, visually and narratively.
I’ve been spending a lot of my free time getting into better shape. Sometimes I hit up cardio machines at the gym, but when I don’t have time, there’s always the option to work out at home.
As of June 21st, it’s officially summer again! For many of us, that means scrambling to get back into bikini (or Speedo)-worthy shape. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to find that same motivation to stay fit all year long, avoiding the dreaded pre-summer crash diets and crazy workouts?
Before I wised up and started running for free, I spent certain decades as a gym rat. I also purchased a workout tape or two and still have the headbands and leg warmers to prove it.
Forget pricey gym memberships and personal trainers, Americans are re-shaping the future of exercise with some help from the past.
