Whether you’re sporting shorts, a bikini or a pair of skinny jeans, you want your backside to look its best. One of the most common questions trainers hear from women is, “How can I firm and tone my tush?” While guys typically have a harder time losing fat from the abdominal area, women often struggle with extra weight on their lower bodies—the thighs, hips and buttocks. To get your rear in gear, try adding these glute exercises to your routine.

If you’re trying to lose weight, you might be familiar with this nagging thought: “I just don’t have time.” Starting a new fitness program can be a big lifestyle change, and it often requires hard work. But having a plan, including a well-designed fitness and healthy eating program, will help you to seamlessly incorporate positive changes into your life without compromising your free time or impacting your already-busy schedule. Use these helpful tips to get organized and you’ll be on your way to losing that extra weight.
If you’re a mom, you’re busy. Whether you work full time at an office or stay at home with the kids, you’re constantly on the move, multi-tasking and making sure everything and everyone is taken care of. But where do you fall on the list?
Don’t feel guilty not going to the gym—yard work is calling! Whether you’re pulling weeds, mowing the lawn, trimming bushes or turning a compost pile, spending the way working outside in your garden is great exercise. Did you know that about an hour of moderately strenuous gardening can burn up to 350 calories?
Being cooped up all winter is no fun. Now that spring is (finally!) here, why not take advantage of the beautiful weather and get outside for some fresh air, sunshine and exercise? There are endless fun and creative ways to work out outdoors—most of which won’t cost you a thing. So slather on some sunscreen, fill up that water bottle and try these ideas to get moving outside the gym or home.
If you aren’t considered “at risk” for a complicated delivery, chances are that your obstetrician or midwife has told you exercising while pregnant is the healthy thing to do. Now, you might not actually feel like working up a sweat once you’re deep into the first trimester and plagued by fatigue, nausea and other fun things—but exercise might make you feel better, believe it or not! (Personally, the days the Morning Sickness Fairy seemed to forget about me were always days I went for a run or did some cardio at the gym.) Plus, exercise during pregnancy can prevent excess weight gain and help treat or prevent gestational diabetes.
When I drive my daughter to dance class every day, I pull into a parking lot packed with cars. But they don’t belong to other “dance moms” bringing their children to tap, ballet and jazz lessons. They belong to patrons—men and women of all different sizes, shapes and ages—of a yoga studio next door. I always wonder what’s going on in there, to draw such a huge crowd of smiling, mat-carrying people, rain or shine, morning or night.
