Many people have disputed me on this but I stand my ground. I’m convinced of it because I’ve seen it all. I’ve watched the handicap, the elderly, the obese, the frail, cancer survivors, trauma victims, and even the Eiffel Tower (a long way from home) run the New York marathon.
I call him Mr. Eiffel Tower. I saw him at the 2009 ING New York City Marathon carrying his costume to the starting point before he officially put it on. It wasn’t easy for him to carry and probably harder to run inside of it. But he did it. He put his mind to it and viola--Parisian miracle brought to life!
In my mind, a miracle is the determination to do an incredible thing and the will to see it through from start to finish, no matter how trying the experience. A miracle is often defined as something that wouldn't ordinarily happen. But the truth is miracles happen everyday. Miracles aren't impossible. They just take work!
Celebrity fitness fashion is now hot gossip! This is like a dream come true for me and I had so much fun dishing to US Weekly.

You better get going before the Fitness Fashion Police strikes!

Serena Williams Wins US Open Match But Loses For Best Outfit
Serena Williams showed Bojana Jovanovski what winning looks like last night at the US Open. It was awesome. But Serena's Nike tennis dress--not so awesome. I love Nike just as much as the next girl, but the dress was underwhelming. Serena Williams is a sports fashion icon! The girl normally has style and pizazz. So what the heck? I wish Nike had designed something that expresses Serena's funky side more. Check out what I think Serena Williams should've worn for last night's match and be sure to enter my Tennis Couture Giveaway to win a new tennis outfit!

If Kat Von D and Amy Winehouse went to the gym together...
Kat would be clear-minded from lots of yoga and find herself a real man. Perhaps a CrossFit hottie.
Amy would be so hooked on her natural endorphins she'd be the last to leave the gym.
Obviously there's no chance of this ever happening due to Amy's untimely passing, but that doesn't mean a girl like myself can't be inspired by the thought of it. Kat and Amy have always gone against the grain with their fashion and lifestyle choices. I admire their strength and radiance, and believe they would've made great workout partners.
Can you imagine what they'd wear to the gym? Let's take a look.
Below are some tatoo-bearing shots of Kat Von D looking very fitness-y. Much like Lady Gaga, her activewear picks look cool but don't guarantee comfort for high performance.
Here's how I'd make Kat Von D's get-up a bit more gym-friendly and moisture...
FINALLY, we’ve gotten to that point in the year where you’d actually rather exercise outside than in a gym. The weather practically begs you to come sweat outdoors! But personally, I’m tired of my jog-around-the-neighborhood routine. That’s why I was psyched to try out Nicola Yvette’s new “Pilates Bootcamp” on the Hudson river. If you tend to think of pilates as the easy-breezy cousin of yoga, let Nicola prove you wrong while you enjoy the waterfront breeze!
I asked Nicola, a former dancer-turned-yoga/aerobics/spin/weight training/pilates instructor (whew!) for the nitty gritty on her class, and her thoughts on the best fitness fashion out there. Read the interview below.
Hey Nicola! So, you have quite a varied fitness background. Given your multi-discipline knowledge, what particularly makes you love pilates?
Nicola Yvette: I began ballet at the age of four. My...
If you know who Kat DeLuna is then you know she's a Dominican born pop star who's climbing the music charts. Her dance and hip-hop tracks make for killer workout music and feature artists like Akon. When she's not singing her heart out, she's in the gym rocking hot fitness couture and I have proof! Check out the video above where Kat DeLuna gets Styled Up 2 Shape Up for Univision's Despierta America show by me and Tadeo from the Cuerpaso workout.
YOU DON'T NEED TO BE A CELEB TO GET KAT'S LOOK
Here's what she wore, why it rocks and where you can get it:
Femme Fitale Fitness Zebra Print Gloves ($19.99) for weight training, floor work, spinning and outdoor cycling
Her own Nike training jacket. Nike's Windrunner Jacket ($63.97) in white/cherry/sapphire is a close match.
An MPG Sport bra. The one Kat's wearing in the video is no longer available. Check out newer styles Eris (shown...
