5 Exercises for Toned Arms
I'm sure you've heard the expression "Teacher's Arm". I apologize to all teachers out there, but you know what it means: the under arm jiggle that increases with age, most noticeably when writing on a chalk board (do they even use those anymore?).  Unfortunately this condition doesn't discriminate.  Even stick thin arms can fall victim to it. The only way to...

Exercises for Killer Thighs
If you are hoping to be in great shape for the summer, now is the time to start.  I love exercising with my Personal Trainer and Kinesiologist, George Gianniotis, a.k.a Trainer George who is a master at coming up with kooky exercises that seem funny at the time, but you definitely feel the burn later.  He has put together a bunch of workouts targeting every large muscle group,...

Let me start by saying that just because I'm the one in the photos does not mean I think I look great naked.  But I'd be lying if I said that isn't one of my fitness goals.  It's practically bathing suit season and I was hugely pregnant last summer so I'm quite motivated.  I have been exercising a fair bit as you know, and Kinesiologist and Personal Trainer...

Getting back into pre-baby shape is a lot harder than plain old getting fit. For one, if you're breast-feeding you are probably raging hungry and two; you have a little one who demands the majority of your time.  Sleep deprivation is a whole other topic.

I've discovered the best way to work out is if my baby can be part of it.  If you saw my recent feature in the Globe and Mail,...

Twice a week, I punish myself with a high intensity workout. My goal is simple: To get my pre-pregnancy pants on (and zipped up) without holding my breath/passing out. 

Personal Trainer Stephanie Sibbio of Think Fitness has a butt and thighs that no doubt bring her equal doses of admiration from men and cut-eye from women. For this reason I let her hurt me every Thursday morning (and then her...

Despite a 14 hour day at her studio Stratusphere, when Trish Stratus walks in the room she’s as energetic and humble as they come. Count this down to her yoga. Her tiny frame is also toned to perfection. Put that down to yoga too. Seeing her lean muscles and sculpted backside in person has me convinced. If yoga can get me looking like that, I’m in.

“It doesn’t really work the muscles it...

On Monday evenings, I play in a recreational adult kickball league. For some reason, our team is in a competitive bracket. Yes, a competitive bracket of adults who play kickball.

This means that on a weekly basis, we get our asses kicked by groups of (mainly) guys who were probably picked last in gym class growing up. Whatever they wanted to prove in 5th grade, they’re proving after work on the...

Looking at Doutzen Kroes up close you are acutely aware that God broke the mold when He made her. No wonder Victoria's Secret tapped her as an Angel, her beauty is almost unbelievable in its perfection. So while she likely doesn't have to work out to keep her amazing figure, it's actually something she likes to do! We asked her about how she stays motivated and she tells us why even...

Take your cue from the runways by adding some Popsicle-bright hues to your workout gear this spring.

As many of you have emailed me to guess, yes I'm the anonymous Mommy-to-Be!

I'm expecting my first baby this summer and pleased as punch about that. Though pre-pregnancy, Trainer George was whooping my butt on a regular basis, the past few months I literally went home every night and sacked out on the couch eating ice cream and toaster waffles. As you can imagine, the effects have not been...
