Women’s Health Cover Star for May 2015: 

Confession time—the one and only episode of How I Met Your Mother I ever viewed was the last one. Let’s just say I was terribly confused over the different characters and their motivations but thought the woman who played “Robin” was not only funny and but also a great actress.

Cobie Smulders is featured in the new The Avengers: Age of Ultron movie which I am pretty sure will make a few bucks over the next few weeks. Cobie posed for the cover of this issue less than two months after giving birth to her daughter (holy smokes!) and reveals in the magazine she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer when she was just 25-years old (wow!)

Cobie is very heathy these days and appreciates her new life in New York City with husband Taran Killam of Saturday Night Live (!!) and her two daughters. She keeps in shape with Soul Cycle and Pilates and tries to enjoy a good serving of mac and cheese when she can.


So what else is in this issue of Women’s Health

15-Minute Workout “Step up to Sexy”

I know you might find this hard to believe but I know LOTS of people who still love cardio Step workouts after all of these years. Me—I think they are terrible for your knees and hips but the equipment can be very useful for other types of training and this workout from Amber Edwards of Equinox is pretty solid.

Women’s Health Fitness Awards”

Women’s Health picked the best of the best in fitness gear including treadmills, trackers, tanks, ear buds. Water bottles, running shoes and sport bras—which is the one piece of equipment that most women neglect and drives me crazy! (You are tearing muscle fibers when you let them loose!)

“Hang Tight”

You want to gain strength quickly—try a suspension workout. This one featured here is from Todd Durkin of Fitness Quest 10 gym in San Diego

And now the rest of the best of this issue of Women’s Health:

  • “Having a Moment: Bone Broth” Most of my Paleo friends are insane for bone broth and show pictures constantly of their latest concoctions. Anyhoo—Women’s Health explains the benefits to bone brother in all of its glory here.
  • “Forces of Nature” I cannot believe it is May already and I have NOT made vacation plans yet. Well in this section you get 50 suggestions for healthy-type vacays you can enjoy either on your own or with a crowd.

Overall Grade:

A  I really like meeting Cobie Smulders, the workouts are top notch and the information is solid. Get the May issue!

  1. Call me old school, but I used to love my step workouts for cross training! I’m not very coordinated, and I could actually follow along. Now my crossfit coach has me doing lots of stepups on the box, so I guess I’m getting those benefits through her…

  2. What a cool idea to review a magazine! I used to lovvvve picking up magazines to read on the beach or while eating breakfast, but sadly my iPhone has replaced that 🙁

  3. What did I learn from that magazine COVER? … that I will never be able to achieve those flat (pre baby) abs or perky (large/enhanced) b side boob breasts. 🙁

    • I will say that bothers me too. And in the interview she says she posed topless because someday she might not be asked to so… I don’t know. I am not trying to make a career in show business. I have no idea what crap people have to go through to keep working. But it does seem weird to expect that from a woman who just gave birth.

      But it was her choice!

  4. I’m just not in the IN crowd I guess. I never watched HIMYM since from the commercials, I didn’t care for it. I’m also not a fan of the stars posing half naked lately at events, selfies or mag covers. Must be getting older, but just my modest opinion.

    I will check out the sports bra review though. Not thinking at all about vacation, oh well. Happy Nurse’s Week!

  5. I adore Cobie Smulders! She’s a great, very versatile actress. (comedy/drama/action) I appreciate the fact that she posed topless for Women’s Health. Nothing wrong with looking sexy. btw, this is her real body. There is a video that accompanies it. The woman is superhuman.
