Avoid the Pitfalls of Choosing the Wrong Gear to Workout: WHAT NOT TO DO


You really do learn from your mistakes. Ex-boyfriends and bad sportswear...

What can I tell you? We shall and WILL SURVIVE! There's no question that unwise sportswear choices can spoil your workout. And you don’t have time for that! Read these DON’Ts and master the DO’s! The right gear choices will make you feel confident from the first drop of sweat to the last.


1. DON’T wear boyfriend hand-me-downs or oversized shirts you stole from the dude you hooked up with way back when. Or maybe it was last night?

And please throw away those old varsity shorts! They might bring back sweet memories but they’re worn out, shapeless and c’mon—so outta style! Instead, channel the “I borrowed this from my boyfriend” look or ex-boyfriend (who's never getting it back), by scoring pieces from the new adidas Boyfriend Line.

The Boyfriend Baby Bro Tank makes you feel like you’re wearing his clothes in a chic way that flatters your feminine...

- This is a guest post by Michelle Thomas -

Hi! I'm Michelle Thomas, mother of a 13 year old energetic son, Tennyson, and partner at Origin Agency.

15 years ago, I lost 30+ lbs. Now at 43 I'm in the best shape of my life! I'm active every day. I bike 6 miles to and from work, rock climb and practice yoga. I race cyclocross in the fall, and do sprint triathlons throughout the year.

MizzFIT, who is my friend and workout buddy, was an incredible inspiration to me and encouraged me to run the New York Half Marathon last May. Fashion is also one of my passions, so I was super excited when MizzFIT asked me to review MooMotion's tri apparel and give my honest opinion. As a designer, I'm really impressed by the unique details in the design and high quality fabrics that are necessary in my multi-sport world.

I was thrilled with how the MooMotion pieces looked on me, and the way they emphasize my (minimal) curves. Even lean girls want curves!!! The Stamina...

No Waves? No Board? No problem. Get A Surf Girl's Body With This Workout!

Your summer is screaming for WAVESHAPE!

It's the surf-girl-body workout that's absolutely FREE and taught by my super hottie friend, Adam Rosante. For the record, he's not a narcissist. I just like putting talk bubbles on people's pictures.

To get in WaveShape, you don't need to live in NYC or LA. You don't need fancy equipment either. I love this workout! That's why I made this video with Adam--to give you a peek at WaveShape and to show you how it put a fitness nut like me completely out of breath!

Why was Adam in a robe? I thought maybe, just maybe he'd show some skin. Instead he let me dress him. So if you're looking for sportswear to dress your own man in, here's what I recommend:

Adam is a total guy's guy so everything I picked out mirrored that.

He has a line of killer t-shirts on his company site called People's Bootcamp (his other workout). The motto: EAT CLEAN. TRAIN DIRTY. LIVE HARD. Nothing cheesy about that.

I picked my...

MizzFIT + adidas = Dream Come True with a Padded Sports Bra on Top!

I'm still processing this but I can't keep it a secret any longer.

I've joined forces with adidas!!!!!!! Can you tell there's an implied shriek in this bit of news? I'll be doing all kinds of cool things for them, like getting my butt kicked at the official adidas headquarters gym and reporting on their upcoming sportswear innovations for women. Imagine me jumping up and down because that's what I did all the way to Portland, Oregon (where the pic below was taken).

The funniest thing to me about this picture is that I'm wearing heels! But seriously, I have 1 colossal shoe to fill!

On top of all the excitement of traveling to Portland and meeting everyone at adidas from the designers to engineers, I fell in love with a padded sports bra. It's called the Supernova Racer Bra.

It has just the right amount of padding to smooth perky nipples over (am I the only one this happens to?) and is designed to prevent uni-boob from happening ('cause who wants that?)....

Exercise Gadgets That Flopped. See Where They Are Now!

- This is a guest post by Ellen Meyer -

Since I lost weight over 10 years ago I’ve been looking for fun and creative ways to maintain my ideal weight. It was hard work to lose that weight and I certainly don’t want to backslide. I’m always optimistic that the next new thing will be the secret to a perfectly toned body with minimal effort. I’m a sucker for gadgets and I’ve tried just about every one that came along - with definitely mixed results. Here are my top 5 flops:

1. The Shake Weight

Most middle-aged women seem to have “bingo wings”, those unsightly flaps under the upper arms that keep on waving 5 minutes after you stop. Some refer to them more kindly as angel wings. Either way, we all hate them. Even though I’m basically slim, I still have those jiggling flaps of flesh. When I saw the Shake Weight advertised on TV, I knew I had to have it. Immediately. So I headed for my computer and ordered it, paying almost $30 (including shipping costs). You...

The Promise of Real Booty from "Real Housewives of Atlanta" Star, Kenya Moore

Kenya Gets The Boot-y!

If I have to pick a favorite housewife from the Real Housewives of Atlanta cast, Kenya Moore has my vote! I recently interviewed her by phone. We laughed and groveled about gym hair. I'm either a diva too or Kenya Moore is more down to earth than she lets on.

At 40+ she carries a lot of experience and wisdom with her. She may have a spring chicken tushy but Kenya Moore has undoubtedly lived and learned. My interview with her on Celebrity Sweat tips captures her tips and insights on fitness & fulfillment


TMZ reports that Kenya has signed on for another season of Real Housewives, so you better get used to this damsel speaking her mind and twirling fabulously. All gossip aside, Kenya really cares about women's health and I think it's pretty awesome that she's willing to share her booty-shaping moves. If I had an ass like that...not sure I'd talk. I'd keep it top secret. Luckily, Kenya...
