How to Lose Belly Fat after having a babyBefore we get into the details of these super helpful tips prepared by my Personal Trainer, Steph Sibbio (pictured above with my baby girl) let me get one thing out of the way first: wanting to firm up your belly after a baby is not a reflection of how you feel about becoming a mother or about your children.

Getting a toned tummy is a desire shared by many women at any stage of life. Having your...

This fitness adventure has taken us to some pretty innovative and interesting (to say the least) ways to get fit and feel confident with our bodies. So I hope you Chicks have been following along. If not, here is our twerking story to give you a feel for what we've been doing.

This is a story about one Chick getting jiggled, suctioned, and pummeled into sleekly-toned submission. And I liked it.

Have you ever seen those infomercials showing a person shaking viciously on a vibrating machine (while smiling obnoxiously), convinced they can lose up to 4 pant sizes in 10 minutes? For most of us, this probably comes off as being rather hokey. I suppose you can understand...

If you read my fitness profile, you know that I have strayed from my formerly beloved high-intensity aerobic workouts and moved on over to the callused-hands-burpee-filled CrossFit world (insert villainous laugh here).

Six weeks ago I posted pictures of my pasty, slightly bloated post-baby body on ChickAdvisor here.  The reaction was an interesting mix of “Go, Ali!” and “That’s rude.

It is better for my...

With all this testing out of new gyms and studios, not only are our bods getting a workout, but our iPods are too. The only thing that makes the treadmill bearable for me is a good playlist that pumps me up, keeps me going when I want (so very desperately) to stop and helps me wind down with a stretch. 

If you're like me, a decent playlist is a must for a trip to the gym, and we're here to...
